Latest Caregiver Reviews & Testimonials
Since joining the Home Instead Norwell Team in March 2021, I have discovered that being a Care Professional is so much more than being "just" a caregiver. I have had the opportunity to meet so many amazing individuals as well as their families and the chances are I may not have met without Home Instead. Being able to sit with other generations and learn their stories is one of the best qualities of this job.
It is incredibly rewarding for myself to be able to help all my clients to achieve daily things that they may not otherwise be able to do on their own but to also help them stay in their residence as long as possible. Whether it be simple companionship to cooking, cleaning, gardening, reading, walking, errands, appointments, medication reminders and personal care it is so vitally important that we help with these things to help them be less overwhelmed, as well as helping the families so they can cope with these changes their loved ones are facing. As a care professional I take joy in removing some of their pressures relating to the families loved one so they have more quality time to spend with them or get some rest for themselves.
This job has taught me so much about myself. It's not a hard job to just simply give love and support when needed. I have learned I have more patience than I ever thought and believe me it is so important to being successful with home care.
Home Instead expects a high-level quality of care when it comes to the clients. They take it very seriously as well as myself. The office staff are the most amazing people. They do their best to make sure as Care Professionals that we ourselves are doing well and offer their support where needed and that is something very few employers offer.
I am so grateful for this career. Anyone considering a job with Home Instead should know it's hard work but for the reasons mentioned above makes it absolutely worth it.
Treasure our senior citizens because they can teach you things books and classrooms cannot and just maybe you can teach them something new. It's amazing what a smile and a caring hand can do for someone. I am continuously thankful for my opportunity and ability to help all that need it. Best job ever!

Although I have worked at Home Instead Norwell for only three months, I have been very impressed with the ongoing support and enthusiasm from the supervisory/administrative staff. A company can make a world of difference in the quality of their delivery of care to clients when the employees feel valued & respected, and receive the support they need in a timely manner from supervisors. I’ve heard it many times: “The door is always open. You are welcome to stop by (the office) any time.” Knowing that the company’s goals center around high quality, personal and compassionate care for their clients gives both caregivers and families peace of mind. Home Instead Norwell’s comprehensive initial training as well as ongoing opportunities for additional training have been a significant benefit to both me and my clients. I am able to request training which specifically caters to my client’s needs. I am happy to be part of a team that is making it possible for people coping with dementia & physical challenges to live at home by providing much needed respite care for primary family caregivers as well as complementary care for family members living a distance from their loved ones.

Which are always for the appreciation of the outstanding care we provide to our clients.

I have been with Home Instead for 18 years (3 Owners). I do not know of any other Professional Home Care Company that SHARES its Profits with its employees in Quarterly Bonuses; paid extended training programs; contributions to 401Ks; stipenens towards monthly Health Insurance; and paid sick/ vacation time.
Whenever you call the office, there is always (24/7) a person answering the call who knows you. It's personal. We have a steady source of assistance in information concerning our clients and their changing needs. We are updated before we get to the home on Changes. Other employees become our friends and "Family". We are a TEAM. We Work TOGETHER.

After retiring from the law field, I found that I needed something to do that would bring me self-satisfaction and give me a feeling of being helpful to others. I found just what I was looking for at Home Instead. The staff accommodated me. They set me up with a wonderful woman who needed a companion and someone to do errands, bring her to appointments and do light housekeeping, etc. We had many common interests which Home Instead noted when they set me up with my client. I was set up with hours that worked for me and almost two years later, I still take care of my original client. The staff at Home Instead is ALWAYS available to help us caregivers and assist us with answers to any questions we might have. I personally am impressed with the availability of educational tools that are offered. I have taken many of the classes both at the office and on line. I plan on working for Home Instead for quite some time.

I care for my 91 year old Mother and feel very lucky. During Covid, decided to leave corporate life and find something more rewarding. Getting to know my clients fulfills that.

Work schedules allow for a great deal of autonomy. Caretakers can accept work assignments for many hours or minimal hours and they can select hours that fit their family or personal needs. Most important, caretakers are treated with a great deal of respect.

I feel that the company is respectful of caregivers, helpful to caregivers when they have concerns about clients, has high standards for the types of client care they want to give, and models quality standards to their caregivers.

Just the whole overall on how they run their business, they incorporate so many positive aspects and incentives for the care givers which not too many workplaces provide. Nothing is forced on you, you can work as many hours as you need or vice versa. Home Instead accommodates to you as an individual. I love the staff – they don’t get the credit they fully deserve cause each and every one of them is there to help you at any time of day or evening, and we know how hard they work as well. So hats off to all staff and to all caregivers to, for all that everyone does.
