We have had some wonderful Home Instead caregivers for both my Mom and Dad. They also have caring and compassionate staff who work in the office. Buffy Gray was with Dad until the very end and was such a blessing! She “got him” and I truly appreciate that. She was so caring and kind to him and worked so hard to keep him comfortable. I would not have wanted to be on this journey alone and without Home Instead. Thank you to everyone at HI!

I would recommend Home Instead of Gastonia for anyone finding themselves or their family member in need of Senior Care. Our caregiver was Teresa Moss and she was absolutely the perfect fit for my parents. She was so caring and responsive to their needs. Anyone who matches up with her will be very blessed in so many ways. Teresa gave our family peace knowing our parents were well taken care of. I don’t know what we would have done without her! She is knowledgeable, caring, trustworthy and simply joyful to be around.

I am Laura Shive, step daughter to Leo Reed who receives care by Home Instead through the VA Community Care program. Suzanne Bridges is Leo’s caregiver. She brings compassion, knowledge, and experience to the superior care she gives Leo every work day. He says she is “extremely good, has a can do attitude, is willing to work, is on time, and does her work above and beyond expectations and is dedicated to duty and is wonderful “. She helped Leo submit an article about himself to appear in the Marine Corps memorabilia book. We are very fortunate to have her to help us cope with Leo’s health issues and daily living needs.Without Suzanne, it would be very difficult for Leo to continue to live at home. We are so thankful for her!

Two years ago, I had a total knee replacement. My husband had recently had a stroke and was not able to care for me. Our children live out of town and also were unable to care for me. I contacted Home Instead to come a few days a week until I could get back to my normal routine. The ladies I had come out were wonderful! They knew exactly how to help me manage with my new knee and also were extremely helpful in taking care of daily cleaning and organizing around the house.
Last Thursday, I had my other knee replaced and knew exactly who I wanted to help me get through those first few weeks of needing some extra help after surgery. Again, I am greatly pleased with the support and bonds I have made with these ladies. They are always on time and ready to step in and do whatever they see is necessary to make my day run smoother.
Right now Debra is my aide and she is great! This company has proven itself to me on more than one occasion now and I would highly recommend them if you are in search of assistance with home health care.

We have had some wonderful Home Instead caregivers for my Mom and now for my Dad. They also have caring and compassionate staff who work in the office. Gloria Washington was there with Mom until the very end and words can not express how blessed we were to have her. Now, Buffy Gray is with Dad and is such a blessing!

We want to give a HUGE thank you to Joanne R. for helping my dad. He looks forward to, as dad says "spending time with you" and this is a great thing for him. He loves "visiting and talking" and this has helped lift his spirits. People do not realize the impact the social aspect has on folks who can't get out and about like they used to. The help you provide in their daily activities is extremely valued as well, and the kindness you show them is icing on the cake! Again, thank you for the little extras that you do for them. It means the world to us.

Michelle was such a delight as a Care Pro. She was kind, gentle and truly loving toward my mother. She gave me a peace of mind to be able to run errands and go to doctor's appointments. I knew my mom was in great hands.
I looked forward to the days she would come to our house. She not only helped with mom, but helped me keep my house tidy. Some days I would be up all night and be completely overwhelmed and she would come in and immediately start to work. She was like a breath of fresh air.
She also knew what I was going through as my mom no longer wanted to eat. She helped me out so much to be able to talk to about what was going on with my mom. She was not just a Care Pro but a true friend and part of my family.
I appreciate everything that she did to make the last few months easier. I can't express words to thank her enough. I highly recommend her and Home Instead.

I've been a client with Home Instead for a few years. Amanda is my current provider. I couldn't ask for a better caregiver. She takes care of not only me but helps with mother as well.

5-star review - By E.M.

While under the care of Home Instead for home health aides I was blessed with many aides, but two stand out -- Crystal and Jackie. Their warmth, friendship and loving care made them unforgettable and hard to let go when I moved from Gastonia to Conover.

They were family to me, always cheerful and ready to focus on my needs and comfort, never watching the time, often remaining beyond their shift if their day was over.

I may forget their last names, but I'll never forget them. They remain in my heart and in my prayers. I will always be grateful for the angels God sent during a very emotionally trying time in my life. Crystal entered into the stress of the move to Conover, tirelessly packing volumes of books and personal items. I know Jackie would have done the same if she had been available.

My only regret is that I didn't have a chance to say goodbye to Jackie. When Crystal helped me into my son's car we both were tearful. It was evident that she was a dedicated health aide who loved her calling and her patients. I'll miss her, as well as Jackie, who also exemplifies the quality Home Instead provides in their aids.

We have had an amazing experience with Home Instead. Our care coordinator, Mary has bent over backwards to make sure my dad has been well cared for. She orients new caregivers, has been available any time we have a concern, and truly cares about my mom and dad. Our primary caregiver Lee Ann is also amazing - she is like a member of our family and takes care of my dad like we would! They have made all the difference in helping us navigate one of the most difficult times of my family’s life.

Home Instead provided excellent care for our dear Mother/ Grandmother Margie D. under a program paid for by the VA for surviving spouses of Veterans. Home Instead connected our family to Veterans Care Coordination who works directly with Home Instead of Gastonia. We were successful with applying for the benefit and being approved in an expedited fashion. This benefit was a huge help to our family before our Grandmother passed with providing 1:1 care as well as a much needed respite breaks each week to the family. Thank you Home Instead of Gastonia!

I cannot say enough great things about this Home Instead franchise in Gastonia, N.C. I’ve known the owners for over 20 years. They are true servant leaders. Their heart is for the people they serve.

After 18 months of following endless VA instructions to secure benefits for my father-in-law, I met Sundae...explained my dilemma and was offered assistance. Within days my quest was successfully concluded when Sundae accompanied my wife, Sue, to the VA in Charlotte where Mr Bullis was enrolled with long awaited and needed benefits started immediately.
As a guide and now provider, Sundae has become a friend and go to person as we navigate the changing landscape of our family's life.

About a month ago after my dad suffered a stroke in Asheville we were forced to put him in rehab and bring my mom to our home. Not knowing what we were going to do with her during this chaotic covid-19 pandemic a friend put me in touch with Sundae (my angel) on a Friday afternoon and she and the nurse met with me and my mom on Monday and on Tuesday we had a caregiver in place. Unfortunately the first caregiver was not the right fit so Sundae went back to work and found our current caregiver Loretta (my mother’s angel) within two days. I honestly don’t know what we would do without Sundae, Loretta and everyone at Home Instead. They are the most caring, dependable, trustworthy people we could have ever asked says when she goes back to Asheville we are taking Loretta. Thanks to everyone at Home Instead for everything you have done for us!

Home Instead (Gastonia, NC) has been phenomenal with my grandmother for the last 10 years. They always provide excellent service with a personal touch. The caregiver's visit (and help with several chores) is a bright spot each week for my grandmother. I've seen first-hand the joyful interaction she has with her 'friend' (she calls the staff by their name and considers them like a friend or family). All of the staff members are professional, timely, and nurturing. We are so grateful for Home Instead.

We are so happy to have trusting and caring people care for my MIL. We live 3 hours away, so Emily is our eyes on what's happening and Jennifer provides great communication and support/information to us. My MIL had to go the ER and Emily stayed with her through the admitting her (much longer than she was scheduled) and Jennifer kept us informed. Then at discharge, Jennifer picked up my MIL and got her meds. We could not be happier with extraordinary professionalism & care they provide.

From Sundae in the office to Hannah and the few different care workers we have had so far, I have nothing but praises for the entire team that has been helping us with my dad.

Home Instead makes an oh so difficult experience manageable, safe, caring and loving for seniors who can no longer take care of themselves. Sundae and her team provided care for my parents when they weren't ready and up until ... for assisted living. Being able to sleep knowing that my parents were in their home, being cooked for and fed, providing essential care in grooming and bedtime were priceless. Thank you, Sundae and Team.

5-star review - By Fennie F.
It's not often I write reviews. However, in this case, I truly feel it's my responsibility. Home Instead Senior Care in Gastonia, NC has been providing incredible service to my Mother. The things that make this possible are Home Instead's 1:1 relationship with the patient and family. The other critical component of that is 1:1 decisions too. Mom's plan is specifically outlined for her and what makes her most comfortable during uncomfortable health conditions. There is absolutely no way our family could provide the service Home Instead Senior Care does. In essence, they've become our extended family. I think that's the highest compliment a home-healthcare company can receive. It certainly is in our case.

All the caregivers currently looking after my mother are great. Many are exceptional. They are very competent, very attentive to Mom and have very friendly, charming manners. I could write an essay about certain caregivers and how wonderful they are with Mom! They go out of their way to keep her happy and feeling safe and secure. There is a lot of laughing and giggling in this home, thanks in large part to the caregivers from Home Instead! I'm only writing here about 1% of how much I think of these ladies. My interactions with the Home Instead office staff, people on-call etc. have been positive, for the most part. When CG's have called out and been unable to come for their shifts, the on-call representative has always gone above and beyond to find a replacement. They have always communicated information in a friendly manner, even though they received some call-outs at odd hours!
