"All of the caregivers who took care of my husband were kind, gentle and understanding of his needs and mine. Each one somehow understood what was needed and how to quickly do that. Every one of the caregivers took care to protect his privacy when possible and mine all the time. We were fortunate to set up the services of Home Instead before leaving the hospital. From the very first day to the last day, we had perfect people. All of the caregivers were outstanding. Barbara did an amazing job and the schedulers were all super.
Everyone arrived on time and transferred care to each other quickly. We could not have been more pleased. Thank you Home Instead for helping my husband to a quick recovery."
"The high level of professionalism, quality of care, and compassion that Mom has received from her care team at Home Instead has given the family a sense of relief and confidence when we really need it. The owners, Holly and Curt, are really committed to serving their clients and to making sure that their caregivers are well-trained and supported 24/7."
"Our experience with Home Instead was good. There are some very caring people that worked there. I think it was recommended to us. We chose them because basically we thought that that might meet our needs that time. They just provided care, companion service and just kept an eye on my mom and did some light housing things. We did talk with them about non smokers and they did their best to accommodate us with the resources that they had. We worked through that so it was okay. They were good."
"We were in a situation where mom needed 24-hour care. My only challenge was the price, but thankfully we were able to utilize Home Instead for about 4 weeks. It went really well. Everyone that came was very attentive to her, kind, listens to her like a friend, someone who looks after her when we couldn't be there 24 hours. We were very grateful and it all worked out good. We could trust someone we didn't know with our mom. And thankfully it all went very well.
A lot of different people came. At times it was hard to get used to, but when mom got to know them they would be back again, and she would know who they were. We actually hated to have to end this service. We ran out of money. We had to find a more permanent option for our family's financial situation. But during the time we had, the crisis we were going through, they were a godsend to us for sure. My brother-in-law's family found Home Instead. We didn't have any trouble at all. We're happy with it."
"I just picked Home Instead from a phone book but they provide very good service. They help my spouse with all of her household duties. The caregivers are terrific. We love them! I would recommend them to those who are looking for an in home care agency."
"I had good experience with Home Instead before so I just try to use them again. I use a walker because I’m a fall risk. They stay with me and they also do lighthouse work. My caregiver is excellent. I have been lucky enough to have the same one all the time, I don't like changing around. I have Karen on a regular schedule for four hours a day right now. So far, everything is working out just fine."
"I was calling different agencies and talking to whoever was in charge. I just didn't feel comfortable talking to these people even though I'm sure they were well qualified. I didn't feel a connection. But when I talked to people at Home Instead, I felt a real good connection with them. These are the kind of people I would like to have giving me a caregiver because I did have a good rapport with them and I felt comfortable with the person I'm talking to. I liked what I heard that's why I decided to stay with them. Carol is my caregiver. She comes twice a week, Wednesday morning and Saturday afternoon for about three hours each time. She provides me with just standard help mostly housekeeping duties and transportation. She cleans the bathroom and kitchen, mops the floor, vacuums, sometimes picks up medicine to Kaiser clinic and takes me to appointments or shopping. She is wonderful! I love her. She's very helpful, always ask me what things I want done and she'll do whatever. I sometimes do a list and she'll go through the list and do what I put on the list. She's good-natured. We have a good rapport and seems to have many of the same values and interests so I enjoy her come and visit me twice a week. I'm very happy with Home Instead and I'm glad I found them."
"I chose Home Instead through a recommendation. I've been using them for about 11 months now. They provide home care because I can't bathe on my own and do other stuff. Like today, they took me to the doctor. I have four different caregivers. They just do excellent care. They're timely. Billing and scheduling is excellent too. I will also recommend them to others."
"The company was able to accommodate and help out when needed. The staff was polite."
"I had Home Instead come in one day a week because I had surgery on my back, been in rehab and had been home bound. They're wonderful. Renee, my caregiver is just fabulous. She's here four hours every Tuesday morning. I've had her the whole time and it’s perfect. While she's here in the house, I take a shower that way if something happens, someone's here. After I'm done with the shower, she cleans the bathroom. She also changes my bed, washes the clothes, dusts, vacuums floors, cleans the kitchen and takes out the garbage. I have stuff on the garage on the shelf that I can use as a pantry and she brings in whatever I need. She is work, work, work all the time. I have a list of what needed to be done and “Oh my Gosh!” My bed is changed or the kitchen is tidy already. Plus, she is just a great gal. That makes it even better because she is pleasant to have in my house. When she leaves, I feel so good because everything has been done and my house looks great.
I've known about Home Instead for years and talked about how they background checked everybody. When I needed somebody I know exactly where to go. It was just easy to pick a home care provider. I knew they were a good company and I knew they were great people. Kurt is just wonderful. He is such a caring man. Billing is very easy too. They email me my bill and I pay my bills online. I'm lucky to have them. They have been a Godsend to me. They're a blessing."
“DHHA has a wonderful working relationship with Home
Instead. Our Clinical Services frequently collaborate with one another as
we both strive to provide high quality care to the Denver metro area.
There are times we get referrals that we may not be able to accept, so it is a
blessing to have a trusted partner like Home Instead in the community.”—Dan G, MS, RNDirector of Clinical Services
Dominican Home Health Agency Inc.
I've been working with this company for a
little while now and I just love it. The people in the office are so easy to
work with and are always helpful in whatever my needs are. I'm able to call or
drop by and discuss whatever issues I may be having or get information I may
need. It's sometimes hard to look at this as "a job". It's such a
treat for me to spend time with the clients, helping them with their needs,
talking to them, hearing their stories. This is the most fulfilling position
I've ever had. They bring such joy to my life. I'm so glad I found Home Instead
and would recommend them to anyone as a career or a place to take care of your
loved ones. —Susan M.
love working with the seniors! Taking care of clients in their own homes allows
caregivers the opportunity to truly provide a much higher quality of care than
caring for clients in a senior care community. We can provide extra services
such as: cooking favorite foods, bathing on the client's schedule, usually
letting the clients shower for longer periods of time if they so desire,
reading to clients and doing other activities with them that provide
opportunities for increased interaction and mental stimulation. These extras
greatly improve the quality of life of our clients! Also I love being able to
declare what hours I am available to work and be able to take on extra shifts
if the need arises and I am available."—Beverly T.
"I really appreciate
the support of all of the office and on-call staff. They are always available
to answer any questions which might arise about my concerns and the care for our
clients. I truly feel appreciated as a part of the Home Instead team and that
what I do really does make a difference."—Jane S.
"I love working for
Home Instead, I can work as little or as much as I prefer. If I need a day off,
there is always someone to cover shifts. Really enjoy the owners of this
francise and ALL of the office workers. They all work really hard to keep the
clients and employees happy."—Deborah G.
"I am very happy working as a caregiver for Home Instead and thank you for the opportunity to
see what its like to work for an awesome company! I love all the
clients I've worked with so far. They are all so much fun to work with!"
—Jen W., Wheat Ridge, CO All of our CAREGivers receive Advanced Alzheimer’s training as part of our basic CAREGiver training. Our own Alzheimer’s expert and trainer, Jill Lorentz, is empowering our CAREGivers with the knowledge, skills, and confidence to provide excellent and compassionate care to those clients who are living with Alzheimer’s or other dementias. Here is what some of our CAREGivers are saying about her class:
“Your delivery of the Advanced Alzheimer’s class material was from the heart. I learned new skills today that I can deliver from my heart as well. Thank you Jill!”Mindy S
“I loved every minute of the class from start to finish. Your teaching methods are inspiring and it is obvious that you are very passionate about caring for those diagnosed with Alzheimer’s. I hope I have the opportunity to attend more of your training classes in the future.” - Renee
“Believe me when I say that I have never been more inspired by an instructor in all my sixty years, which includes nursing school! I absolutely loved everything you taught and shared with us today and I can’t tell you how much you have helped me in understanding our clients who are living with Alzheimer’s and other dementia-related diseases.”Billi Jo I.

"On behalf of my family I would like to thank Home Instead and all of the CAREGivers who provided such wonderful service to my mother. In her final days I had a chance to meet many of them and everyone seemed so genuine. They all appeared to have a warm relationship with my mother and provide good care. I am glad we used Home Instead services. It was more than a "service" - it was a group of real people who genuinely cared.”
-G.S., October 2014
"Leticia has been the perfect CAREGiver! She was always on time with her beautiful smile and bubbly personality! We got so much done together----she is awesome at organizing! I could talk to her about anything---and did. She is so friendly, honest, and trustworthy. Leticia lifted my spirits and fulfilled every need I had. Sometimes just knowing she was there was all I needed. I truly believe she is my guardian angel.
"Floyd was wonderful with Larry, and Larry enjoyed his outings with him. I did not have to worry when he was out with Floyd. I am very grateful for the times he spent with Larry as they greatly enhanced his quality of life. Floyd is a special guy."
"Linda has been my CAREGiver for over 3 years. She is like a daughter to me and my family has become very attached to her as well. God has blessed me with this very special, loving, caring lady and I am forever grateful for her love and care. My meals are always so good! My house is always in order and washing as well as ironing are done in a timely manner. She loves my dog, Max, and he really loves her too! Linda is always happy, smiling, and is such a pleasure to have in my home. I am so blessed to have her care."
“I want to express my heartfelt thanks to everyone at Home Instead who has helped us over the past 2 years. You have been wonderful! A special thank-you to Bryan and Lee who were with us from the beginning——-also John, Steve, Don, Joe and Chris who so lovingly cared for my father and his home. Words cannot express my gratitude for everything you’ve done.”
“What do you say about a man like Ken? The answer is everything that is good, patient, caring, understanding, and loving. Ken has been the CAREGiver for my husband Jack for over a year. Dealing with Alzheimer’s is not an easy task for anyone, but Ken has made it so much easier for Jack, myself, and my family. Ken not only keeps my husband calm, but his support keeps me grounded and hopeful. This man has the patience of an angel, and if there are angels among us, which I believe there are, then Ken tops the list."
-Dee & Jack
“I want to recommend Lindsey for CAREGiver-of-the-Month. She always come with a cheerful, upbeat attitude. She is very quick to see what needs to be done and is efficient in what she does. She is respectful of our privacy even as she helps with personal care. She is fun to visit with and most congenial. She is a bright light in our stay-at-home routine. We feel most fortunate to have her helping us during our time of need.”
—Katherine & Bob
“I have personally witnessed Lindsey helping my mom when I am there, and she is very attentive and engaging with a genuine care for Mom. She is very proactive in her approach to her work and doesn’t wait to be told what needs to be done. She is really excellent at keeping the house clean and tidy. She is also very good at multi-tasking and chatting with Mom while working. She does it all with a smile and a wonderful, outgoing and positive attitude. Lindsey is greatly appreciated by my mother and me.”
“Tara is very flexible with the care of my father. She is helpful with whatever his needs are: cooking, cleaning, laundry, shopping or just an ear to share a story. I know he gets lonely by himself and he always looks forward to the meal Tara prepares in addition to the conversation. She is very compassionate and understanding of his ways. It is a huge relief to my brother and me to know that there is another person who is concerned for and watching out for our father.”
—Daughter of Client
