We needed home care for my mom after suffering two strokes. From the moment I placed the call to home instead to the time the caretaker was not needed they were awesome. They came on a short notice, assessed the situation and we're on top of her care. I live in Virginia and was more than comfortable knowing mom was in great hands. Thumbs up to Kim and Caroline for working together to make the transition easy for all, including my mom and siblings

We had 24-hour care from Home Instead Senior Care so it was 2-3 people that were working during the week. They lived at my parents’ home and we had to get hospice care in the end for my father. Most of the caregivers were very good and caring for him. He had bone cancer and they were very gentle with him and handled him very carefully. They were also very helpful to my mom; doing the laundry and doing some light cleaning for him. They stayed with him in the hospital which gave him a little bit of comfort because my mom couldn’t travel with him back and forth to the hospital.
