"Winnie was a great sitter for my mother during her recovery. The staff was friendly and helpful."
"I appreciate the interest that everyone shows. Their concern is evident in every way. This means a great deal to me."
"Mom moved and needed to have new caregivers. Home Instead worked with the family to find a good fit. We cannot always be here, so the free lock box allows caregivers to come. We appreciate Kimberly, especially."
"Highly professional caregivers who recognize that my mother is cognitively clear. They do not talk down to her, nor do they "over provide". They give her the independence she needs. They are interesting people. She enjoys their company. The are very reliable."
"My husband and I are very pleased with the friendly and caring Home Instead Caregivers that take care of my Mother-in-law. My mother-in-law is in a senior living facility (in a version of an assisted living "plus" section), but she was falling often, and the facility was unable to provide the more frequent monitoring that she required. We live several hours from the facility, so could not be with her as often as we wanted to either. I was familiar with Home Instead since my job as a RN Care Manager (when I lived in Michigan) referred our Patients to your company. The process to get my Mother-in-law a 24/7 Home Instead Caregiver was easy and communication with our contact person was efficient and very helpful. I would definitely continue to recommend Home Instead to anyone."
"The caregiver is a perfect match for my mother. I was pleased that we were able to meet the caregiver early. We've had some challenges with anxiety with my mom and you all were able to quickly respond to me and arrange more days of care and a longer care time during the day."
"We LOVE Charlottesville Home Instead!!! The staff answering the phones are unfailingly warm and responsive, and they know our Mom. They appreciate her and accept her quirks, but when they notice changes in the nature of her communications with them, or have other concerns for safety/status, they let the family know right away. The caregivers have been wonderful. Overall we've been very impressed with their level of professionalism , patience, and kindness. We also really appreciate the staff's willingness to accommodate our Mom's preferences and scheduling requests. Warmest regards from a youngest daughter."
"The men we have had caring for my dad have been and are awesome. So tender and caring and stimulating and empathetic. Home Instead administration has always been extremely attentive to our need and concerns. Highly responsible, I can't recommend them enough. I tell the people at UVA Hospital as well as the residence where he lives, and all my Friends and family."
"Home Instead requires continuring education AND provides classes which are relevant to a number of client care (and caregiver) topics, AND the classes are well-presented. I think this sets Home Instead apart from other caregiver employers. "
