Reviews of Home Instead Senior Care - Wilmington, NC
Average Rating: based on 3 Reviews
I am a current client of this provider
The aide that my mother has is very punctual, very attentive. My mother doesn't need too much care, mostly companionship. But she's there to help in any way. I see her every morning because I go in to my mom before I go to work. She does whatever my mom needs. And as of today, the nurse from Home Instead is paying my mom a visit to make sure that her medical needs are met and she's okay. I feel they're very organized and caring for their patients and all that.

We chose to have Home Instead for my dad because it was referred to us by a friend. They are very professional and it feels like that it's a good match for him. We did not wait for too long. I must say they are doing a very good job with taking care of my dad. So far I can say that it's a good experience.
I am a past client of this provider
I placed my mother at Home Instead Senior Care shortly after she was diagnosed with Alzheimers three years ago. While sadly, she died last year, I was blessed with the tremendous care and consideration Home Instead showed to her, me, and my family through the tough time. Overall, my experience with Home Instead was very positive. The staff were all very kind and generous, and would go out of their way to help my mother whenever she needed something the number of times I would go visit her. My mother always seemed very content with her living environments, and often times I would see one or more workers keeping her company and talking with her. They made sure that she was properly cared for, received her medications on time, and was receiving the attention she needed. I would wholeheartedly recommend Home Instead Senior Care to any of my friends or others seeking a good environment for their elderly loved ones.
