"Home Instead come 2 afternoons a week to care for my 85 year old mother. Mom lives with my family in her own attached semi apartment. One day a week transport her to the beauty salon. Every 3 months they take her to the foot dr for toenail trim. They go out for lunch and get a special coffee each day they are with her. They change her sheets, paint her nails, do lite exercises, lite house cleaning, work on memory games, go for short walks,take her to visit her sister.
They are timely, pleasant and work hard to meet my mothers needs. I leave a list each day of things I would like them to do for/with mom-sometimes they have todo a lot of encouraging to get her to work on exercises or eat enough. They are never harsh with their words nor demeaning when she forgets or needs help with something, The home staff leave me notes of any concerns about mom or any appointment scheduling changes. Occasionally we have needed extra shifts, the office staff have worked to fill our needs. "
