Reviews of Home Instead Senior Care - Newport News, VA

I am a current client of this provider
We had Home Instead since August. We interviewed three different people from this provider and they seemed to fit our needs. So far we're very happy with them. We haven't had any real problems. So far they have been on time, they have done what we have asked for and any little problem that we had, they have gone on ahead and corrected it. So I can say we're happy with them. The caregiver we have right now would come in three times a week, three hours a day. We're happy with him.

I liked that it was personally run by the owners. They did a lot of background checks on people and they had also some things where they actually train people with memory issue and dementia and that's very important to me. They were wonderful. They've taken over different things since I lived several States away, they would pick it up all the time. They were very consistent. They all wanted to help. They were not just sitting there, they wanted to do and be there. These people took them out to the beach and the park. They got my aunt out and about.

I cant not tell you enough how Home Instead Senior Care has changed our life. I'm a working mother who cares for 2 kids,husband and an aging mother. It was tough juggling both. I started my search and interviewd other companies. I stoped looking when I met Chuck and Hollie the husband wife team who make up Home Instead Senior Care. The passion in their voices assured me this was the right company to go with. My mother loves Home Instead Senior Care. They are reliable, dependable, caring,trained and very professional. My mother cant wait until her caregiver comes to help her in whatever needs done. My mother is full of life and excited when Home Instead Senior Care comes to the door! Home Instead Senior Care is a dream come TRUE! Thank You so Much!!!
