Latest Reviews & Testimonials 


"I live 1000 miles from my mother and stepfather. Due to the levels of dementia and hearing loss my parents are not a reliable source of information regarding their needs. Their home assistant and local office makes certain I am kept informed of issues and concerns as they arise through their communication procedures. This reliable information allows me the ability to sleep at night. I know that they are getting the things they need and someone is putting eyes on them twice a week. My parents have a relationship with their home assistant that goes beyond basic needs. For my mother, this is a much needed social outlet. She looks forward to these visits. Without Home Instead’s support my parents know they would not be able to remain in their home."

Dear Todd and Carly,

In July of this year my wife, Jeannie, and I requested a home health aide from Home Instead. We asked that they be positive and energetic to assist my wife in coping with and defeating cancer. 

We have been more than pleased with the person you selected, Abby Wheeler. I doubt you could have found a better fit for our situtation than Abby. She is bright, cheerful, energetic, and has taken excellent care of Jeannie. She always arrives several minutes early, never runs out the door exactly at 5:00, and makes sure that we don't need anything else done before she leaves. She is professional and conscientious, she anticipates what is needed to be done, and takes pride in doing the best job possible.

We think she is an outstanding employee of Home Instead and represents what every employer hopes for to represent their company. On this Thanksgiving, we are thankful for many things, and Abby is near or at the top of that thankful list.

Please recognize her as one of your best, if not the best, employee that you have. We greatly appreciate Abby and we appreciate your company doing such a tremendous job in our community.

Thank you and best wishes for a Very Happy Holiday Season.

Dick R.

To Whom it May Concern:

We did a house visit with Bobbie L. and were very impressed with her in-home CAREGiver, Tiffany, who works for you! She is very knowledgeable and on top of Mrs. Logan's care! Bobbie and Charles just LOVE her! Thank you, Tiffany, for the great work that you do!

To Whom it May Concern,

Recently I've had many helpers in my home and none can compare to Ronda. She is truly one of the best. No matter what the problem is, she always seems to find a solution, going above what is required. In addition, she is always cheerful and more than just willing to help. Ronda is truly a treasure, she is full capable, plus!

Dear Home Instead,
I'm so appreciative of the care you've given my sister over the last eight months.  I'm especially pleased with the time and friendship Marie has provided.  You all filled in a gap I was unable to fill, as her sister, because I live so far away.  New in her home at Benton House and  without a car, I felt like she needed a friend and a way to get out.  Home Instead was there for us.
However, in the past eight months, Linda has, I'm happy to say, made many friends and gotten involved in many of the Benton House activities and field trips.  Thus, Marie's servies are not needed quite as much.  I'd still like to have Marie get together with Linda once a month.  I know Linda loves to shop with Marie; she always seems to have a list for "when Marie visits."

Dear Home Instead Friends:

On behalf of the Residents of Emerald Coast Rehabilitation Center, I would like to whole heartedly thank you for making our Residents holiday season joyous.  Your generosity of gifts, warm wishes, cards and most importantly giving of yourselves is more appreciated than you can know.

A lot of our residents are without families and have lost touch with their friends.  You became their family and friends.  Remembering them during this holiday season warms their hearts and ours.

Your giving nature and community involvement is commendable.

Wishing you the warmest of Holiday seasons and the best to you and yours.  You shall be blessed for your caring efforts sharing spirit.

Thank you again for caring for the Residents of Emerald Coast Rehabilitation Center.

Dear Home Instead Senior Care,

I want to thank you for all the help you have provided over the past several months.  From the time I contracted with your company for services, I have received outstanding, caring and thoughtful support.  Your tact and compassion was evident from the first phone call to the last time that we spoke.  I am deeply grateful for all that you did to assist me with my Mom.

I would like to express my appreciation for the level of care shown by two of your caregivers, Theresa H. and Shriley F.   They added a personal level of caring about my Mom and that made me feel as if we had a new friend in our circle.  Each one brought something different to the situation, but seemed to be exactly what Mom needed at the time they were assigned.  Keeping the same caregiver from day to day  lent stablity to Mom's routine.  I never worried a single minute when I knew that Shirley or Theresa were at my Mom's appartment.

I can and will highly recommend your company to anyone that I meet that could benefit from those types of service that you provide.

Jane M.
