"I am a certified Geriatric Care Manager and Public Health Nurse. I have run my own business on the shoreline, helping seniors and their families. I have authored a book, "The Longest Embrace" to guide seniors and loved ones through the mess that is now healthcare. While a Care Manager is important, the front-line caregivers must be trustworthy, trained, accountable, and guided by a truly caring, educated, and available staff. Home Instead has been on the shoreline for a long time, and I have always been impressed by their willingness to work with families, and really listen to what the needs are. This is a custom business, and not one size does fit all. The managers I deal with there are always willing to listen, offer suggestions on care, and try to please the client, family and the caregiver as well. I expect certain standards when I refer people for care, and I have not been disappointed. I can walk in their office at any time to discuss anything. I'm comfortable referring clients to this agency, and know that if I need anything, the owner or a manager will go out of their way to make it happen."
"This agency employs a competent, caring and well-screened staff. A client of mine used this agency for quite some time and we were never disappointed with the quality and reliability of the home health aides. This is an excellent agency to use if you or your loved one requires a home health aide or housekeeping.
