Latest Reviews & Testimonials 

"The saying "You get what you pay for" has certainly proven true in my experience with this Home Instead group. We'd signed up for their services awhile back, but didn't really need them all that much. However, when we did, we needed them immediately. My mom's decline was rapid. Not only did they come to our aid immediately, they were instrumental in getting what we needed from other services. My brother and I would not have been known how to handle this without the advice, kindness, and experience of the coordinator and sitters. Knowing that we had the help of experienced people was invaluable. I have always found them to be professional, compassionate, and very agreeable to work with. Would I use them again? Most definitely. "

"Home Instead has been a Godsend for my family. My mother fell and broke her ankle where she lives in Mississippi, but my siblings and I all live in Pennsylvania. As a medical professional myself for the last 12 years, I can vouch that their customer service is impeccable. I was able to arrange care on a Sunday that started on Monday. The in-home provider is wonderful. My mother can't say enough good things about the help she's getting. Thank you to all of the staff who are making my mother comfortable and my life much less stressful. "

"I can't say enough good things about our experience with Home Instead. It began with an interview with Keisha in which I was so comfortable talking to her. She was so reassuring and kind. We had a wonderful relationship with our sitters. They were all professional and compassionate. We formed friendships and I shall never forget. My husband of 43 was an Alzheimer's patient and died this past April. "

Home Instead Senior Care provided care for my grandmother for nearly six years. It would not have been possible to keep her at home without their help. When we first began this journey with Home Instead Senior Care, my grandmother was mobile and able to live on her own. We began services with a couple of hours a few times a week. As she aged and after a series of unfortunate illnesses and events, my grandmother needed 24/7 care. Home Instead Senior Care was able to adapt to all of my grandmother's changing needs in her care as well as with her schedule. No matter what we faced as the family, and it was a very difficult road, Home Instead Senior Care and their CAREGivers were there to help and support us every step of the way!

My grandmother built wonderful relationships with CAREGivers that lasted for years. Some of these CAREGivers were with her in the last few weeks of her life. I am so thankful that we were able to not only keep my grandmother at home, as she wished, and to her last day but that she was surrounded by people who loved her and cared for her as if she was their own family member. They even went above and beyond after my grandmother passed to arrange a "Celebration of Life" in her memory for all the CAREGivers who had been a part of her life and the family as well.

For most of her time in their care, I lived out of state. I never had to worry when I was away if she was being cared for or if all her needs were being met. I would highly recommend this company! Home Instead Senior Care is a great group of truly caring people who are very passionate about enhancing the lives of their clients.​​

"Living out of state, it eases my mind to know that Home Instead Senior Care is there for my dad. His CAREGivers are committed to his overall well-being and the staff in the office, especially Tracy, make very sure that he has folks with him who are attuned to his care and, just as ​importantly, his personality. Home Instead Senior Care has been there with us for several years as his need for companionship and care have increased. I think they look on him as part of their family. I know we look on the staff and CAREGivers there as part of our extended family."

"The entire Home Instead Senior Care Staff makes you feel so comfortable with every aspect of this experience. They are always very professional, compassionate, and caring. Our regular CAREGivers have all become part of our "family." We feel very blessed to have found them.

There are times in our lives when we have to make hard decisions. I mean “tough” when it involves the one you love most. I had to make one of those decisions in May of this year. My husband has Parkinson's disease and Lewy Body Dementia and I had gotten to a time when I could no longer take care of him by myself. As I looked for help, I called Home Instead to come and talk with us. It was a good meeting and I decided to get them to help me. It was the right move. They are very caring, kind, qualified and most of all want to do what is best for the family. I know I can call them at any time and they will do what needs to be done. I can also say that I could not ask for better caregivers. They not only care for my husband but they are also concerned about me.

They are professional and efficient. Everyone involved with Home Instead has been so good to us and I appreciate it very much. I suggest you give them a call or visit if you need help. You will find a lot of heart and love in all of them!

I have used the services of Home Instead Senior Care off and on for the last five months. While in the hospital, they introduced me to my new caregiver her name was Dee Dee O'Malley.

I didn't know quite what to expect but was pleasantly surprised. She knew I was scared to death and didn't know what to expect. But it didn't take long for us to hit it off.

Dee Dee immediately took charge. In doing so she made me feel very comfortable. We began to clean up the house. We got rid of the clutter and Dee Dee helped me with plans for rearranging the furniture, making it easier for me to get around in the house in my wheelchair.

For the first few weeks, she was my arms and legs. She got me up in the mornings helped me shower and got me dressed for the day. She also cleaned, washed clothes, cooked and vacuumed the house. At the end of her day Dee Dee put me to bed before leaving for the night. She also ran my errands during the day these included shopping and banking.

As time went by we loaded my crutches and wheelchair in her vehicle. We went out to eat, shopping and to doctors appointments. Dee Dee also helped me find a van for transportation needs. The van has made it so much easier to get around, as it has a ramp especially designed for wheelchairs.

Through these last five months I have had several caregivers. They have all been very professional and loving. I would highly recommend Home Instead to anybody who needs specialized care.

" My favorite definition of integrity is when somebody does something right without somebody watching. Tracy is a good representation of a person who has integrity. Tracy is a perfect diplomat for Home Instead Senior Care. Whether she is having a good day or a bad day, Tracy is always smiling, she remains professional and positive as well. Tracy is very dependable and she often times shows up to work early. Tracy is a wonderful caretaker she is humorous, genuine and very caring.

It amazes me that Tracy always seems to remember to ask how my doctor's visits went and how I am feeling. Tracy is so thoughtful that even when she is asked to pick a location to have dinner, Tracy's reply is "I want you to pick so that we both enjoy it, I can eat anything ". Not only is Tracy a good CAREGiver she is a wonderful friend and a terrific asset to Home Instead Senior Care."

"I just wanted to let you know how pleased we were with your CAREGiver, Melinda.

Melinda had been helping my Mom and Dad a couple of afternoons a week for almost a year. My Mom has Alzheimer's disease, and Melinda showed great patience in working with her. This gave to my Dad much needed break from full-time caregiving.

On August 8th, my Dad fell and broke his hip. Melinda stepped in and provided caregiving during the weekdays, while my nephew was with his grandmother at night and weekends.

It was a great help that Mama already knew Melinda, though she called her "that girl" most of the time.

I would not hesitate to recommend your agency to families in need of full or part time CAREGivers."
