"Home Instead has been a lifesaver as we try to allow my step-mom to stay at home and live independently with caregiver support. The staff communicate well with you and have had to staff quickly due to all of a sudden discharges from the hospital. They also support the caregiver which is very unique but very needed. I could not do this without them. "
"Home Instead Senior Care, in Auburn, Alabama, has been enormously helpful in caring for my 85-year-old mother. Their management listened carefully to Mother's preferences and needs, then matched her with two caregivers, who alternate days, Monday through Friday, for approximately 7 hours per day. These women provide transportation to Mother's hair, doctor, and dental appointments, as well as to social activities. They help her get ready, fix simple meals for her, run errands, and provide companionship at restaurants and movies. My brother lives in Maryland, and I live about 30 minutes from Mother, so Home Instead Senior Care is a godsend! Thanks to their compassion and attentiveness, my mother can remain living in her house, while still enjoying her independence. When Mother's doctor occasionally sends her to the hospital, her caregiver waits with her until I arrive. My mother attempts to hide problems like falls, or excessive amounts of sleeping, from me, so it's a huge relief when Home Instead Senior Care contacts me, to inform me of changes in her well-being. I would rate this team of professionals a "5", or top score, for their excellent, competent care!"
"We used Home Instead services for my mom for more than six years. The caregivers were well matched to my mom's needs which changed over the years. She has been provided personal care, light housekeeping, companionship, meal prep, and really anything else that she has needed during a Home Instead shift. She has formed true friendships with some of her caregivers. The office staff has always been flexible when we've needed to change schedules (e.g., during a hospital stay) and ready to help when we've needed to start services again. I would happily recommend Home Instead services for senior care. They made it possible for my mom to stay in her home much longer than she would have otherwise."
"The staff has been successful in creating solutions for unexpected situations.
The level of personal attention has kept my family member happy and avoided fearfulness and emotional apprehension.
I am kept aware of changes before and during times of change.
I am absent from this town, most of the year; they keep me advised of the conditions of my family member and check on her needs when there are weather conditions on concern.
They consistently strive to exceed my requests of them in timely manner."
