From initial contact with Donna, recommended by VNAS, to the introduction to caregivers, Virginia and Julia, our lives improved in every way possible with their excellent knowledge, skills, and caring. They delivered 4 days a week for almost 2 years. Our lives became manageable. I would highly recommend both of them for going above and beyond in our lives. Thank you Home Instead. My husband had dementia which was rapidly progressing and these caregivers fulfilled our needs until he went into a memory unit.

Home Instead took care of my aunt for over 3 years. They allowed our family to have her stay in her home which is what she always wanted. My aunt suffered from Alzheimer's and was very difficult to deal with the last year or so but the people from home instead took such great care of her. The women that came to the house had such compassion for her and understood that it was her disease not her that was being difficult. They said that they had gone through some type of training with home instead to understand how to handle issues with Alzheimer's. Two of my aunt's care givers even came to her funeral on their own time. My family was very impressed by that level of commitment. We would recommend Home Instead to any family looking for help.

The staff from Home Instead have been patient and very caring working with my mother who is struggling with physical limitations and emerging cognitive problems. She is very unhappy about needing care and insists on being in her own home. Home Instead has allowed me to be able to keep her in her home with the piece of mind knowing that she is cared for 24/7. This is critical as I live out of state and need to be able to trust that my mom is being cared for with compassion and safety. I have been impressed with staff's willingness to be flexible and to respond immediately to any questions or concerns I have had. They are always just a phone call away which gives me important peace of mind.
