We are so lucky to have Tina in our lives for so many years now. When I put Mom in a nursing facility we included Tina as part of her care 4 days a week, knowing that Mom and Tina had a special relationship in her care and Mom and I trust Tina to this day. Tina always gives me an update on Moms care including the shenanigans she is up too, noting Mom is Irish

Patrick is a gentleman, he does what my father in law needs in a kind and caring way. He was very compassionate when my mother in law passed away. He also has been a Godsend in taking care of the housekeeping.

My caregiver, Monica Donahue, has been with me for a long time. She is an awesome, delightful and caring person and takes very good care of me. I am 93 years old and she is with me several days per week. I wanted to let all know how very grateful I am to see her so often and happy with her warm and loving care for me and my home. Thanks to Monica and Home Instead!

MICHELLE B. took stellar care of me today. This is the 1st time I had the pleasure of having her care for me! Along with caring for me at home, she took me to my Dr appointment today, drove me with care because I'm in so much pain -ONLY 6 DAYS POST OP (I had a serious major surgery). I was in such excruciating pain my BP was 186/125 (& I DO NOT HAVE HIGH BLOOD PRESSURE)! I was sobbing...the pain was beyond words. She was EXTREMELY COMPASSIONATE, HOLDING ONTO ME, HELPING ME TO TRY TO GET COMFORTABLE, getting tissues, giving me encouraging kind words. I really would not have made it through this EXTREMELY EXCRUCIATING appointment without her kindness & tremendous compassion! I'm looking forward to her coming to care for me again. Blessings on you Michelle and thank you for your tremendous kindness and compassion. You are an Angel.

Overall the service has been good. The only time we had a problem is when Home Instead changed our caregiver’s hours one day without advising the client.

Michelle has done an excellent Job for my wife Joy. She can also clean exceptionally well when not tending to my wife’s needs. We’re new with home instead. The interview process was thorough and all the people seem capable. I’ve only had to call once and got a prompt return call to address a scheduling issue. We would recommend Home Instead.

Dylan and Darla from Home Instead were wonderful. They took very good care of my mom. Since my siblings and I live out of state, it gave us great peace of mind to know that she was in such good hands. And Rhonda was always on top of things to make sure everything was running smoothly.

Valerie is a blessing. I could not live alone if I did not have Valerie. She goes over and beyond what is necessary. She helps me with my shower, she does the laundry and cooks meals for me. She makes sure I have meals for her day off. She keeps me company when I am alone.

During a very difficult time in our lives, it meant so much to us that the team at Home Instead took the time to understand our situation.

I cannot emphasize how truly wonderful my Mother's caregivers were! I truly don't know what we would have done without their help. In particular, we wanted to express our thanks to some truly phenomenal members of Home Instead's caregiving team.

Thank you for providing such a wonderful alternative to long-term care facilities. The caring, sympathetic, and hardworking staff at Home Instead were invaluable. We can't thank the office team and great caregivers enough for their professionalism, care and loving kindness.

First of all I want you to know that their caregiver, Judy, was a perfect fit.  My parents enjoyed her so much and they said she was a "work horse".  Just did things without being told and I know she did above and beyond what they said.

5-star review - By Rita V.

Carol Mahoney has become a welcome addition to our lives! She brightens the day by taking over care of my husband showering, making meals, and gently coaxing him to share tales of our lives. She anticipates my needs as well by cleaning, doing laundry, dishes, errands and allowing me time away. Being able to leave and trust her to care for Ray as well as Peanut gives me much needed time to rewind.

I really have appreciated the help of all the caregivers during my recent hospital stay. Thanks!!!

My Mother loves her care taker. That is Huge!

- By Addie R.

Home Instead carried a great burden over the last few months and did it with grace, efficiency and care.  The support your staff provided allowed Ma to stay at home and lead as independent a life as possible.  She retained her dignity and her sense of humor.  Home Instead was truly a godsend for Ma, and for us.  We knew she was getting unmatched care and always felt that we were in the loop.

- By Susan C.

Words are inadequate to tell you and your wonderful staff how much your help and caring have meant to Charlie and me during the last few months….all of her companions, from the beginning, were delightful women who understood her problems and cared for her as if she was their own…I must however, single out Angela and Ellen, both of whom went so far over and above what their job entailed that I realize, we could not have done those last 3-4 weeks without them.  We are so grateful we found Home Instead ….

Home Instead was very good. The person who was my husband's aide was perfectly matched. It was an older man, but he was very capable and was never late. He did far more than the ones up here do. The rate was lower. I cannot praise Ed enough.

5-star review - By Gail S.

We first used Home Instead 2 years ago when my mother sustained a concussion and leg injury. My mom lived in Bradenton in an independent living residence and all of us kids lived out of state. They sent Pat to her. Pat was a God send at a very difficult time. She was our eyes and ears. Shortly after that my mom fell and broke her hip. We called and hired Pat again. We decided to keep Pat on once a week to keep my mom company and again to be our eyes and ears. My mom and Pat became good friends and mom looked forward to Pat's visits. Most recently my mom broke her other hip and we had Pat still go to stay with her even in the hospital. When mom was transferred to the nursing home for rehab we kept Pat on. She let us know about a very negligent incident and stayed with my mom until it was corrected and my mom was safe. That was one of the most significant things Pat did for us. She was Our person in that place. She looked out for our mom and let us know if things weren't right. She also took my mom in her wheelchair outside to her garden and over to her apartment to see people. Last week on Mother's Day my mom died. I finally got to meet Pat face to face and thank her for all she did for my mom and our family. During that time Pat came on her own time to stay with my mom so I could take a much needed break. I felt safe leaving my mom's side with Pat there. It also gave Pat some time to say good bye to mom. Pat, you were such a blessing to my mom and to me. Thank you so much for your tender care and love.

On behalf of the family of Mildred B I wish to thank you for the excellent care which your team of home health aides provided our aunt.  She was very content to remain at home and to be assisted in her daily living by Donna, Jean, Linda and others from your agency. We appreciate their caring attitude and the efforts of the entire team in allowing her wishes to be followed.

I could not be happier with your service. Noreen is really intuitive and certainly not lazy.I definitely would recommend HISC.

- By Lark S.

I would like to thank you for the care that everyone at Home Instead gave my Aunt Barbara during the seven months we used your services.  Your office staff was always so helpful with scheduling, billing, and other administrative details and it was nice that someone was available to answer the Home Instead phone at any time of day or night.  Your caregivers were prompt to arrive and attentive to Barb’s wants and needs.  I know she felt well cared for.  Our family, who all live some distance away, felt very comfortable knowing that your caregivers were with Barbara when we couldn’t be.   Please don’t hesitate to let other potential Home Instead clients know that we were very satisfied with your company’s services.

We love our caregiver, Meri. Her care for my grandmother is truly amazing.

- By Richard

Carolyn is a great match for me.  She is prompt and a very efficient worker.  She follows directions very well and remembers them.  She sees things to do and does them cheerfully. She is a big help on my weekly grocery shopping.  She is a very pleasant person and easy to get along with.  I am very pleased to have her as my caregiver.  

We love Pat; she is excellent. No complaints, only praise. Not so happy with the other workers but she is a GEM!

- By Gladys

Miss Terry has been a good helper in her help to us.  In every way she has been a gentle assistant to keep our household flourishing after I could no longer drive a car.  I think she could outshine Hillary if she chose to run!

I had gotten somebody from Home Instead to help me out with my driving when I needed it, but I am back to driving now. It was only for driving me to and from doctors' appointments, and I had different drivers. The first two times were with the same driver, and I really liked her, but apparently she had some sort of illness or something where she was put in the hospital. So after that it, it was just different drivers. Bradenton, of course, is a lot closer to where I live, and when I talked to the owner or manager, I just liked the way that they did business. He came out to my apartment and explained things to me, and just made me feel really good about hiring complete strangers to drive me around. I called the owner on like a Tuesday, he came out that Wednesday, and then the first time I actually used them was that Friday.

Mom says Noreen is very good at what she does.  She is polite and always on time.  When mom asks she fixes her meals.  She talks to mom and they watch game shows together.  I think she handles mom’s slips into fantasy well and lets me know what’s going on with her.  Our pets like her too – especially Misty!

I was able to find Home Instead Senior Care where I could get my transportation provided, and now I am able to stay where I am for now. I don't get the same person all the time. They take me to my doctor's appointments and back, and they stay with me while I'm at the appointment. They're wonderful people -- very professional -- and they're affordable. They have a lot of other services that they provide -- all non-medical -- if I needed someone to help me bathe or get dressed, clean my apartment, go shopping for me, or to take me anywhere I want to go. It's working out very well, and I don't miss my car at all.

- By William M.

I have been meaning to contact you to simply thank you for all of the care your organization offered to him (dad), as well as to my mom, over the past three years.  We really could not have asked for anything more, and we always knew that in our absence he was being held in the very best care by seasoned professionals at all times…

My dad is in his home with help coming in and he is happy with that. We are currently using Home Instead Senior Care which was recommended by someone to us. They matched him up to the perfect person and they have bonded really well. She communicates beautifully with me through the agency and I am very satisfied. Dad is very comfortable with her and he always looks forward for her coming. She has become almost part of the family. She cooks for him, goes to the grocery, and she takes him to all kinds of doctor's appointments because he did give up driving.
