James is our favorite weekend daytime caregiver! I feel so confident leaving my husband in his care while I am gone. He is also so attentive to details in our home making sure that everything is always clean and neat. I wish we had him every weekend!

Justin has been great to work with. Thanks to his efforts, my Mom and step-dad are getting in-home care they desperately need. The staff have been so wonderful! They got my step-father an oxygen tank and are getting my mother set up on their services as well. My siblings are so grateful; we were very worried about them being on their own. At least now we know trained professionals will be checking in on them, helping where needed and letting us know how our parents are doing.

I am the Business Office Manager for Heart of Hospice. We have been associated with Home Instead for a very long time. It is always great to see Justin Anderson when he stops by the agency to say hello and give us some of the Home Instead updates. We have partnered with Justin and Home Instead on several community events. Home Instead is a great resource for people in need of caregivers for their loved ones and they are very involved with the community. Their staff is very friendly and they provide outstanding care.

I am deeply grateful to Home Instead for my wonderful Care Pro, Shavodkia Whitfield. She is very attentive to me and anticipates my needs before I have to ask. She is efficient, willing, capable and very pleasant. I feel exceedingly blessed to have her as my caregiver. I was also quite pleased with a substitute I had recently, Vanessa White. She was excellent. Thanks to all.

We are currently using Home Instead as a service for my disabled husband. We have only praise for the great service we are receiving. Our sitter Maggie,is so special to
Us. She is very professional, yet very personal as well.
She has become like a part of our family and we love her.
She takes excellent care of my husband and has become a great companion. We are very grateful for Maggie. We have used other services but nothing as great as Home Instead.

Tan is absolutely wonderful. She takes care of my grandma Mon- Fri in the mornings, helping her when she struggles, with laundry, and keeping the house cleaned since my grandma can't do these things on her own much anymore. She is kind and patient with her as my grandmother's memory is slipping and she can be quite down on life some days. She is a blessing to our family.

5-star review - By Jennifer C.

At the end of February this year, my Dad fell and hit his head. This resulted in a head injury that left him paralyzed on the right side, unable to speak, and unable to swallow safely. After weeks in the ICU and more weeks in a rehabilitation hospital with some progress made, we made the decision to bring him home. The journey has not been an easy one. When my Dad arrived home he was totally dependent for everything, had to be transferred with a hoyer, transported with a wheelchair, he was confused and weak. The outlook was daunting.

But in came CarePros from Home Instead. There are no words and not enough time to adequately describe how amazing his team is. Our family had not ever been thru something like this, but based on their experience the Care Pros offered advise on set up, advise on supplies and equipment and helped us get organized. They made transporting him to appointments run smooth and seem less intimidating. Exercising his limbs when he couldn’t or wouldn’t. Getting him out of bed. Getting his nights and days flipped back right. Engaging in conversation and stimulating his mind even when he was confused. Sitting with him on the porch or wheeling him up and down the long drive way. His Care Pros didn’t come and sit and didn’t let him either. They didn’t see an 85 year old that was at the end but an 85 year old that had more life to live. They anticipated his needs and kept things moving. Encouraging, challenging and listening.

Protecting his feeding tube and Foley catheter, working thru multiple bouts of pneumonia, multiple ER trips and multiple hospital stays they helped my Dad and us thru it all. Today my Dad is walking with a walker, talking and eating regular food. He is on his way to getting back to more usual things of life. The Care Pros are still helping with this journey. Getting him to exercise (with encouragement), engaging with friends and family, starting to do more of what he used to do. Making sure he is eating and fixing him yummy food. I can honestly say he would not be where he is today without the skill, care, encouragement and determination of his Care Pros. We are forever grateful.

My siblings and I are so grateful for the care that our grandmother received from the Home Instead team. Their combined effort, level of professionalism, and genuine care and love for her allowed us to be able to make staying in her home possible. We had no idea everything that these wishes would all entail, and the Home Instead team made it not only possible, but made it a safe and happy experience for her. There really is not a more important gift than honoring our loved ones and their final wishes. Thank you, all of you, for helping us to do this for her.

Most of the caregivers and companions who have come to us approach their service as a real ministry from the heart. I truly appreciate the attention and care that they give to my Mother. It gives me great comfort and helps us to keep her at home where she wants to be. They live up to the name: HOME Instead of facility care.

Home Instead is flexible. They will work with you to get you the help you need for your parent or loved one. You can tell the caregivers are well trained and open to new ideas for working with seniors that are unique to their situation.

Home Instead has been a lifesaver after my Mom had a fall on a Friday afternoon -- of course always on a Friday afternoon! Home Instead put together a team over the weekend and provided excellent 24 /7 care for the next three weeks. And, were always responsive to our needs and schedule changes. I hope I never have to use them again, but what great security knowing they are there and so responsive.

We started using Home Instead in 2010 when my 92-year-old dad needed more help than my 91-year-old mom could provide. We were so pleased with Home Instead that we continued their services for my mom after my dad died in 2011. We credit the four hours of daily support from Home Instead for allowing my now 98-year-old mom to remain in her own home for the past seven years. Home Instead provides daily companionship, plus gets Mom to the doctor, grocery store, hair salon, and to church on Sundays. Home Instead also ensures that Mom gets two nutritious meals daily and that Mom has easy “fixings” for her evening meal. If Mom’s normal caretaker cannot make it, Home Instead has ensured that another caretaker arrives on time. The Home Instead staff is dedicated to their profession. An example of their dedication is when a hurricane came through Mom’s city. Despite significant inconvenience in her own life due to the hurricane, the caretaker checked on my mom very early in the morning, as the winds died down. She first ensured that Mom was okay. Then she checked the house and yard for damages and reported those to me, including photos from her cell phone. She also recognized that without electric power, Mom could not be left alone… as her emergency button would not work. She stayed with Mom and personally worked a solution by calling Mom’s brother in another town and when taking Mom to their home some thirty minutes away. Needless to say, we have been delighted with the professionalism and dedication of Home Instead.

The staff has been supportive, loving, and helpful. They not only care for the ill person but for the caregiver as well.

Wonderful caring staff. They care for the ill person and for the caregiver. Prompt and courteous, helpful and supportive, answering questions and concerns based on training and experiences they may have had. It has taken so much pressure off of me that I did not realize I was under. I couldn’t be happier with the care we’re receiving.

I called Home Instead when my mother was taken by ambulance to the local hospital in a critical condition. Judy Hesters, administrator, set up for a caregiver to sit with my mother all night, every night that she was in the hospital. This gave me peace of mind knowing that my mother in her helpless condition would not be left unattended throughout the night. You can't put a price on peace of mind, but that is what Jack Hartley and Home Instead gave me, peace of mind.

Home Instead has been caring for my mother for 4 years now, and we are extremely happy with there company, especially the quality of there caregivers, and the way the company takes care of there customers. Because I am my mothers sole caregiver I use Home Instead 7 days a week, and they are able to accommodate my busy schedule. I would highly recommend Home Instead to anyone in need of a company to care for an ailing loved one. I really think an elderly person with health problems/Alzheimer's or Dementia, really is happier and does better in there own home in a familiar environment with people who care.
