"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. "
"I love that you help me be a better 'me' to care for my elderly Mom. Thank you!"
"My husband's needs are met by each caregiver who comes. They take him for a walk, fix a snack or lunch for him, and always see that he has a cup of cold water by his chair. They have all perused books that he loves and shows to them; they also watch his favorite movies. All have been patient as he tries to recount stories from the past. All have been willing to assist him in the bathroom if necessary. Actually, the caregiver today helped him bathe in our Safe Step tub after an "accident" which soiled his clothing. It gives me an afternoon to relax and not feel the stress that goes along with our situation at the present time. I am not comfortable at all with leaving him home alone, so having a caregiver gives me time to be relaxed for grocery shopping. We are extremely pleased with the care received."
"The caregivers are so loving AND hardworking. The office team is committed to meeting our needs."
"Home Instead caregivers provide my Mom with excellent and safe care. They are also very dependable."
"Everyone that has come to the house has been very nice and wanting to be a help to us. They have done just that. We also like the fact that the same person doesn't come every time. Its good for my mother-in-law to be open to new people and not get too used to only one person."
"I'm loving HomeIinstead. The staff is just so personalized to my needs and attentive to every little detail. They are just great! The quality of people they have sent to work with me are very capable and professional. They are clean, neat, groomed, and they usually have a smile on their face. And that's what I really need is a bright smile and that's helped more than anything. Thanks Home Instead!"
"This is a wonderful service staffed by people who care about your loved ones. I would recommend this to anyone going thru or getting ready to go theu this with their loved ones."
"I wanted to know the exact service that could be provided. the amount of time in days or hours per month, the cost of service. All those questions were answered by the knowledgeable staff member that came for a first visit It was explained that the care-giver/companions who would come were thoroughly trained for service."
"Homeinstead has been very flexible and accommodating with scheduling in meeting the needs of my parents in their difficult situation. "
