"I had a great experience with Home Instead. My mother suffers from alzheimers and was needing some extra assistance around the house with light housekeeping, laundry and meal preparation. They provided exceptional care. "

"The Companionship Services received filled a void in my father’s life, they are a Godsend, and one of the most valuable things I could ever do for him." "

"The caregivers and staff from Home Instead Senior Care provided excellent care to my sister. They were kind, professional, quick to respond to our concerns, and communicated clearly in a timely fashion. I felt confident that my sister was in good hands"   "

"Home Instead Senior Care provided my mother with a caring companion when family members were unable to be there. It was a great support knowing her time would be filled by a loving individual who not only helped me out with those small chores that took away my quality time I was able to spend with mom but also gave her joy by reminiscing, reading books, and taking walks."   "

"In the beginning, I had many reservations about home health care. Did I want someone else in my home? Did I want someone else caring for my husband's personal needs? Could I trust them? All of these questions dissolved quickly when I met the two caregivers we were privileged to have. Barb who was here 4 days per week, was very professional, discreet, warm and caring. She seemed to have a real bond with Jerry. He looked forward to her coming each day and knew it would give me the opportunity to run errands. Misty was here one morning a week and Jerry really enjoyed her too. Misty commented that 'I'll take care of him like I would my own grandfather' and she did. They were each a blessing for both of us. I would highly recommend Home Instead Senior Care."  "

"We would like to continue to express our thanks to you for all the different ways that you find to help keep the healthy portions of dad’s brain active and exercised. Your caregivers come from backgrounds of keen observation, never-ending curiosity about how things work, great wit, and compassion for others. Even though dad’s cognition gets scrambled sometimes, he still retains those four characteristics – and I know that you honor them and provide dad with opportunities to use them. You treat him as a person who still has interest in the world around him, and that is a great gift. We are privileged to have you providing care to dad. Thank you again" "

"My sister and I can’t put into words how to express the special care and love you gave to my father. We are forever grateful! He was a difficult case but you all just hung in there with us and helped us through a very emotional and stressful time in our lives. Your support, love, and kindness will never be forgotten. Thank God there are such a staff that can deal with such challenges with our seniors. You are all very special people to be able to give this “Super Care" and love during such a difficult journey we all face. You will always remain in our hearts!! You are Truly the “ Best of the Best “ (My dad’s quote)"  "

"Our caregiver has taken on the huge task (in our minds) of being our father’s companion during two of his three dialysis sessions each week (the week day sessions when we are at work). Because our father has Lewy Body Disease, the last hour of dialysis becomes particularly confusing for him. Our Senior Care companion has brought friendship, kindness, continuity, and hospitality to our father’s dialysis experience--- to such an extent that our father can make it through each dialysis run. That is an incredible gift of life."   - "

"We've been using Home Instead since May and they are doing a good job. We had gone through several elder care websites and checked with Medicare and for our area they came highly recommended. They just need to improve the communication between their staff. "

"It was such a relief for me to know that my husband who has dementia was not wandering in the hall or potentially lying on the floor due to a fall. He enjoyed visiting with our caregiver you sent who was very kind to my husband."  ~ Florence H, Wife


  
"I was somewhat reluctant to have a stranger come into my home to help with light housekeeping. My daughter, who lives out of state, suggested that I contact Home Instead Senior Care. The caregiver who showed up to assist me was not only very pleasant but also accomplished more than I expected. I look forward to her visit and would highly recommend Home Instead Senior Care."  ~ Philip B, Client
