"My husband and I are deeply grateful to the caring Home Instead Companions who gave us respite and peace of mind during our recent stay in Kailua. It was not an easy situation for us to unexpectedly find ourselves giving 24/7 care to my cousin during a time when all three of us were to be vacationing together in Hawaii.
I will never forget how the pressure started to lighten from my shoulders, when Kyle Lovett’s first words to me by phone were “Help is on the way!” Kyle appeared on our door step, like an angel, 30 minutes later with warm hugs and reassurances that Home Instead would soon give us the relief we needed. She greeted Betty with an equally warm hug and exuded heart-felt caring and empathy for her illness.
Happily, Home Instead was able to cover every request, even when we found we would like to add additional time onto several of the shifts. As the owner of a staffing company, I realize this was not a small feat and required considerable effort on your part.
Each of the companions was on time, confident, caring, and clearly had received excellent training. They knew how to relate to Betty to help ease any anxiety she might be feeling and to give her confidence. Each of them communicated well with me and displayed a desire to conscientiously carry out any instructions I gave regarding Betty’s care.
Thanks to Home Instead, My husband and I received the respite time we needed to enjoy beautiful Oahu, free of guilt, and Betty was safe and well cared for to the satisfaction of the entire family. I want you to know what a blessing it was to receive the superb service that we received from you and your entire team. Best wishes to you for continued success as you serve many other caretaker families and the loved ones whom they cherish.
