It is a combination of things. It is the friendliness and positive attitude of all the people I have come in contact at Home Instead. That includes the office staff to the personnel that attend to my wife. I am amazed at the skills of the women that attend to my wife. whether it is attending to the many needs of my wife or the cooking of good well well balanced meals etc. Their friendly and positive attitude to my wife has affected her mental outlook. Speaking for myself and my wife - we are extremely pleased with HomeInstead.

My parents lived in a senior living complex. As the aged, it became difficult for them to perform their daily activities there. Their mobility had deteriorated and there was the onset of Alzheimer's. They really liked their apartment. But, as an only child, I became tired and stressed out trying to provide them with groceries, house supplies, cleaning, medical trips. etc. My own family life and job became impacted by all of this. Then, I discovered Home Instead. They took over and provided the daily care that my parents needed. They provided more care for my parents than I could, including companionship. The caregivers were very personable. It actually felt like they were part of the family.
