"From the initial contact, I was very impressed with the Home Instead service. The staff members were accommodating, efficient and courteous. I hired Home Instead to assist my elderly mother who was hospitalized and gravely ill. The caregivers assigned were exceptional in terms of the attention given my mother and the manner of conduct. I was impressed with the attitude evident in all the staff members who assisted me. Moreover, a manager actually visited the hospital to oversee the initial visit and arrange parking for the duration. The nurses on duty at the hospital were equally complimentary of the Home Instead service. I wholeheartedly recommend the Home Instead staff and service to anyone needing quality personal care."Bernice Bartlett; Stittsville, ON
"I just wanted to drop you this note to tell you how much I appreciate the service you provide. On several occasions, when Peggy was unavailable, you and your staff went out of their way to ensure that someone else came. Peggy is a gem. I have given her the nickname "Radar" because she thinks of things to do even before I do. She works hard while she is here, but we still take the time to chat. I look forward to her visits not just for the work that she does for me, but also for her friendly companionship. Both you and I are very lucky to have her. Thanks again for everything."Cathy J. ; Ottawa, ON
