Reviews of Home Instead Senior Care - Valdosta, GA
Average Rating: based on 1 Review
I am a past client of this provider
I chose Home Instead in Valdosta because I had heard good things about them in my location in Florida. I needed something notarized the first visit (not pertaining to them or their services, yet Jack H. brought his office manager to my parents home to assist us. That told me a lot about them since at that time I had not hired Home Instead! I was pleased with the time they took to get to know my parents and their needs. They picked the most wonderful person to stay with my mom. It was a perfect blend of personalities, and allowed my dad to leave the house for a few hours everyday to do what he wanted. Even after my dad died, and my mom came to live with me, Jack has stayed in touch and sends me information and webinars related to my mom's issues. I would highly recommend them to anyone looking for good in-home care of a loved one.
