The saying "You get what you pay for" has certainly proven true in my experience with this Home Instead group. We'd signed up for their services awhile back, but didn't really need them all that much. However, when we did, we needed them immediately. My mom's decline was rapid. Not only did they come to our aid immediately, they were instrumental in getting what we needed from other services. My brother and I would not have been known how to handle this without the advice, kindness, and experience of the coordinator and sitters. Knowing that we had the help of experienced people was invaluable. I have always found them to be professional, compassionate, and very agreeable to work with. Would I use them again? Most definitely.

Home Instead has been a Godsend for my family. My mother fell and broke her ankle where she lives in Mississippi, but my siblings and I all live in Pennsylvania. As a medical professional myself for the last 12 years, I can vouch that their customer service is impeccable. I was able to arrange care on a Sunday that started on Monday. The in-home provider is wonderful. My mother can't say enough good things about the help she's getting. Thank you to all of the staff who are making my mother comfortable and my life much less stressful.

I can't say enough good things about our experience with Home Instead. It began with an interview with Keisha in which I was so comfortable talking to her. She was so reassuring and kind. We had a wonderful relationship with our sitters. They were all professional and compassionate. We formed friendships and I shall never forget. My husband of 43 was an Alzheimer's patient and died this past April.
