"My grandmother has companionship and home helper services through Home Instead Senior Care in Richmond.
Pat has truly become her best friend. She's dependable and punctual. The caregiver goes above and beyond to meet her safety, transportation, house cleaning and emotional needs.
They color, talk, go to exercise classes and doctor's appointments. Pat even went with her to a surgical procedure, ensuring that she felt comfortable and safe throughout the entire process.
We were a bit apprehensive before hiring an agency, but have had our expectations exceeded. Pat's built a great rapport with my grandmother. We're very lucky to have her.
"Finding someone to help care for your mother as well as you try to do can be a really scary challenge. I’ve been so relieved and supported by Home Instead’s caregivers. After a nice phone discussion about mom, a perfect caregiver was matched to her and honestly its like the 2 are old church buddies. Mom would have been friends her!
I think thats what Home Instead does best-they try to make matches best suited to the clients needs but also their personality which has helped mom stay engaged and happy. Its like an old friend has stopped by to visit.
Sometimes weekend help differs from our constant weekday help but we’ve also been pleased with those matches, too. Stop by to see your loved one while the Home Instead caregiver is there. You’ll be so relieved-and if you have a question or suggestion, call HI office and the help is immediate!
Being a caregiver takes alot of love, time and patience. I’m so happy I’ve found that extra set of hands with Home Instead. I hope you find comfort with them, too :)
"Our 80s-90s mom and dad live in a rural area and we all work full-time. Dad entered hospice care after a brief hospital stay and Mom has dementia. Our daytime caregivers did not have the staffing or experience to handle our new overnight needs. We called Home Instead and talked to Ruth. Our worries were soon over. That was 2 months ago and we are still loving their wonderful, professional staff. The staff is always on time, respectful, helpful and are amazing at keeping us informed of any situations that may need our attention. The office staff is quick to answer any questions we have and return our calls. We highly recommend Home Instead! "
"I don't get over to see my Mom often enough and HI's staff keeps her interested and alert while they are there. "
"A senior family member of ours needed to be at VCU every week day for 30 days and all our local family members have full time employment and it was going to be impossible for us to make this journey alone. Home Instead helped us achieve those appointments. We could tell from the first consultation that we had the right company. The Home Instead employee came to our house and talked us through the services and we were so pleased with her professionalism and kindness; even acknowledged our puppy dog. We immediately signed a contract. We contracted with Home Instead to provide a driver to and from VCU. The driver was professional and caring and above all timely throughout the entire duration of our appointments. We could not have gotten through it without the help of Home Instead. Thank you for being a great resource for the Richmond region. We wouldn't hesitate to call you again if we ever needed your services in the future"
"We recently hired Home Instead for my wife. They help us with basics like meal preparation, companionship, and assistance with every day activities and so on. The caregiver we have is great."
"The home office staff are great to work with - always very professional and helpful, and the aids sent to care for my mother when I have to go out for the day have all been very friendly, competent and compassionate women. I always feel confident leaving my mother in their hands."
