"I want to provide my strongest possible endorsement of Home Instead under the direction of Julie H in Phoenix’s west valley. I was in crisis: suddenly, in one week my mom changed from being fiercely independent to unable to read a calendar. I work and I needed someone to be with my mom when she woke up: to answer her questions, to help her dress, and to provide stability and keep her oriented until we could figure out what was going on. I needed all of this immediately. I needed someone skilled, trustworthy, and caring. One benefit of working in a college of nursing is that I received recommendations from nurses, therapists, and advanced practice providers. Home Instead was recommended more than any other. I called on a Friday; Julie Huebner met me the following Sunday; Shaleen started helping my mom on Monday. I was impressed with Home Instead’s training programs, vetting procedures, and flexibility of service. Several times Home Instead was there during crucial times when I couldn’t be. And when, after several weeks, we no longer needed Home Instead’s help, I was able to end our commitment within 48 hours. No contracts, no penalties, no strings attached. Being able to rely on a business like Home Instead was a blessing; I couldn’t have gotten through those weeks without them. "
"We hired Home Instead to care for a very sick and weak family member, so that he could stay in his home rather than a nursing home. His care giver rocks. She runs him to appointments, takes him on outings, cooks, and does light house keeping. Not sure what we would have done without Barb."
"Home Instead of Surprise has been helping me care for my wife for about 6 months. Since the first day that we met Julie Huebner they have done exactly what they said they would. The office staff are very pleasant and efficient and the caregivers have been superb. I look forward to using Home Instead for as long as I am able to keep my wife at home."
"They provided excellent care for my wife who was suffering end stage emphysema including 24 hour care near the end. The care people were very kind and caring both to my wife and to me and my daughter. Their professional experience and training were exemplary. Home Instead always met my needs no matter how fast they changed during the latter part of the illness. If someone was unable to be here, Home Instead always had someone else covering. I just cannot express enough thanks for the care provided. "
"Very helpful and caring helpers who are responsive to our needs and flexible in their response. We are quite satisfied with the services."
