Latest Reviews & Testimonials 

"Home Instead gives me peace of mind. I am able to leave my husband knowing he is safe and happy."

Posted by weeksey506 on Oct 24 2017

"We used Home Instead for our mom as she neared the end of her life. It was such a relief to her and to all of us that she was able to be in familiar surroundings. She had 2 or 3 different caregivers, and each one was reliable, trustworthy, and most importantly, patient with Mom, whose worsening dementia made her quite challenging. I would definitely recommend Home Instead to anyone looking for care at home."

"If I am ever hospitalized for a short time I am anxious to see how my husband responds to caregivers when I am not here for a few days."

"Since Home Instead Senior Care has been providing services for my Aunt Bonnie, the change and turn around that has occurred has amazed our family and her doctors. Aunt Bonnie is healthier and happier than she's been in years. HISC caregivers have worked wonders with her. The care, the compassion and companionship has been great."

"The caregiver from Home Instead is very caring and willing to do anything we’re asking. Somebody come in that helps us with daily things like cleaning. They did a fantastic job. They do laundry, clean the house, and get meals for us. They were exactly what we were looking for. "

"Home Instead has been wonderful to work with. They provide exemplary services to my father. My family lives a significant distance from my father and Home Instead has provided us the ability to help him live at home, keep up his health, and provide companionship/connection that he would not receive. Dana and staff are in constant communication with me whether it be questions about improving services for my father or letting me know about concerns they observe. Finding care for my father was a very difficult decision and I could not be happier about using Home Instead. "

"We have had very nice people (with Home Instead). We have had great luck. Our caregiver Rebecca even brought a flower for my wife. I took a picture of Rebecca and my wife with the flower Rebecca gave Judy in her hair. "

Dear Laura,

I want to thank you for your kind service for Mom. Dave and I are so thankful for your service. I enjoyed getting to know the care givers. June is a jewel. She was a great help to me as she cleaned out the refrigerator for me. That saved me some time on move in day on Saturday. 

Thanks for everything. My mom's friends were impressed with your service. So maybe we can spread the news about your service!!!!!!!!!

Thanks again for being so available by phone when we were on trips.

I cannot thank you enough for the care that you provided to my parents and how much it helped our family. The kindness, respect, and compassion that was shown to my parents by everyone will not be forgotten. During some difficult times, you were there when needed the most. I will highly recommend Home Instead.

Laura Carmody and her staff excel in their attention to detail. Their concern for my father's well-being is clearly geniune. I live about two hundred miles away from my father's duplex, so it meant a lot to me that Laura would personally phone me to keep me updated on how my father was doing, or to discuss ways we could improve his well-being and quality of life. I've lost track of the number of times Laura went the extra mile to personally attend to something my dad needed, even with her busy schedule. I am also impressed with the quality of her staff, and the thought put into which caregivers would be assigned to my father. They all get along very well with my dad, and most of them have become quite fond of him. Another aspect that made a world of difference is the housekeeping: the caregivers do such a wonderful job! If I had the decision to make all over again, I would choose Laura Carmody's Home Instead in a heartbeat.

The family of Dale hired Home Instead to help us take care of him. They were able to help us bridge the gap from independent living to intermediate care. The people they placed to help us were kind, considerate and very qualified. Not only did they take care of our step father, but helped the family cope with the problems. I would recommend Home Instead to anybody who needs help keeping a loved one at home or in a senior living facility.

Laura, thanks for providing a great service and thank your staff and CAREGivers for their patience and assistance. The staff and CAREGivers of Home Instead were very helpful, patient and very attentive to the needs of my Mom. The service in all aspects provides compassionate and efficient assistance and is a pleasure to work with. I would highly recommend Home Instead and their services for others seeking home care needs.

Both Jessica and Bertha are vey good CAREGivers for me. They nearly always come a few minutes before the set time. Their work is well organized — they get things done! 

One great thing about Jessica and Bertha is that they always listen to and respect my requests. Since I choose an active lifestyle, some of my requests can be off the wall! 

I thank the Lord for Jessica's and Bertha's continuity. I don't have to keep getting used to a new CAREGiver. 

I am well pleased with Jessica and Bertha!

For the past six months I have had the same prompt CAREGiver. She is busy assisting me with my showers and dressing me. She also does various household chores. I'm really dependent on her.
