"Home Instead Testimonial
I was looking for some help for my mother as she was getting more frail and unable to do the things around the house as she used to. She was 93. I do not live in El Paso and I wanted someone to be with her at least part of the day. I called Home Instead because I had heard of them where I live. We decided to have someone come and be with her for three hours a day. Melissa was the one who came most of the time. I have nothing but praise for her. She was good company and very responsible.
One day Melissa was coming to work at my Mom's as scheduled. The door was locked and she could hear my mother yelling. She realized that my mother had fallen, so she called 911. My mother had fallen several hours before. Had we not had Melissa coming I don't know what would have happened. When my mother went to the hospital and then to rehab, I had Melissa visit her everyday so we could keep tabs on her. When she was released we decided to have 24 hour a day care.
The ladies who came to be with my mother were very professional, kind and caring. I got to meet most of them on my visits. It was a relief to know that someone I could trust was always with my mother. Several of the ladies, I came to find out, were from the military or in military families. I think this was reflected in their reliability and competency. Their help in my mother's last year was a blessing. Thanks to Melissa, Tiffany and the others whose names I unfortunately do not remember.
