"The care givers from Home Instead were absolutely wonderful when my Dad was home from hospital and in palliative care! We had them come for the over night so we could get some rest and they were so kind and compassionate and perfectly reliable. I don’t know what we would have done without them and are eternally grateful."
"Friendly and helpful people. Would strongly recommend their services."
"They do an amazing job. The staff are courteous and always looks after our mothers needs. Words could not express the gratitude we have for them. Taisha has always been on top of things and gives an ear where every its needed. She knows how to relate to us.Ranjeet is a great PSW always taking great care of our mother. The whole team works together to make this time in our lives with our mother a smooth and easy transition every step of the way. They both deserve recognition for their hard work and devotion to their jobs. They all go above and beyond right down to the accounting department. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts."
"The team is very flexible and adapts quickly to respond to changing requests which is important given that sometimes elderly people get things mixed up and don't remember to discuss change in plans. Great response time to emails, regardless of the time sent"

I am writing on behalf of the patients on the Complex Continuing Care Unit at Georgetown Hospital. We want to thank you for your generous donation of the luxurious blankets for our patients.

"Dear Gavin and Priscilla,
On behalf of Bethell Hospice, please accept my thanks for the gifts you placed under the Christmas tree at the hospice. It is because of individuals like yourselves and the generous donations made that Bethell Hospice is able to provide care supports and services for the community at no charge. The blankets you have gifted will be given to those in need of comfort and warmth. Time and again people have told me how comforting the blanket is for them with each person attaching their own meaning to the gift. A blanket may seem a simple thing but please know the difference your gifts make for others.
Best wishes to you, your family and friends for the holiday season."

"A big thank-you for the caregivers that have been coming in to see Dad, they are compassionate, respectful and he is always so glad to see them and so appreciative for everything they do. The morning lady "Karen" always puts Dads safety and well being first, provides emotional support and just seems to really understand him, even to his enjoyment of the birds and squirrels in the back yard, he is fortunate to have such a caring individual looking after his morning needs. The afternoon lady "Michelle" is bright, perceptive and Dad enjoys his evening meal with her, she always goes the extra length to ensure his comfort, hygiene, and well being. I am impressed I have met many Psw's, over the years in my profession yet these two ladies truly standout as superb caregivers. I feel reassured just knowing there with him giving him the support he needs. Warm Regards"

"Dear Gavin:This is just a short note to let you know that the care given to Mrs. Joan S. 'was outstanding. I am sure her family will follow up also, but on behalf of Dr. R. and myself we would you to know how very impressed we were of the excellent standard of care, compassion and support given to not only Joan but to all her very caring family members by your staff.Her primary carer April was a fantastic caregiver. She was gentle in the care she provided but also in the education and support she provided to the family as they recognized mums deteriorating condition and escalating needs. She led them gently, she was always part of our discussions and she was probably the most important part of the care team as she was with Joan throughout this journey and provided us with regular updates. She was very respectful and demonstrated great professionalism.
As you are aware we have recommended your services to others and have no hesitation in doing so.
Please pass on our kind regards and thanks to April. We look forward to working with you again. "

"Home Instead has been a godsend! Just as the name implies, Priscilla Fernandes and her caregivers have allowed me to keep my 88-year-old mother in her own home. They have been kind and caring, and responsive to whatever needs crop up, and needs crop up unexpectedly when you live an hour away from your Mum! I know I can count on support, both for my mother and for me. They are reliable, trustworthy and so very, very kind.
