I just recently went through a very hard time in my life where I lost my mother to Alzheimer's. While she had it for quite some time, the last few years were the hardest. Her disease required me to be with her almost around the clock and this was so difficult to do because I was also managing a full time job on top of the normal duties of a wife. I did things on my own for a long time until I realized that I couldn't possibly continue with it all. I reached out to Home Instead Senior Care and from the very first conversation I was already feeling better. They assured me that their caregivers would assist in giving me my life back and also take care of my mother the way that she so deserved. I was so relieved to find out that they were absolutely true to their word. The team of caregivers that they sent out were wonderful. They were not only knowledgeable of Alzheimer's but they were all so very compassionate and respectful towards her. While I recently lost my mother and it's been difficult, Home Instead and their team were there for me and her until the very end. I cannot say enough good things about this company. If you are feeling at all like I was several years ago I urge you to give them a call. Even if you aren't ready for care now at least educate yourself on what they could do for you. It has been a blessing to have them in my life.

It was referred by a friend that we chose to have Home Instead Senior Care for my mom. I can't say enough great things about them. They are very responsive and very flexible. They can change their hours of service based on the needs of their clients.My mom's caregiver is very caring and sweet. She's always making sure she's taking her meds on time. We found a great match caregiver for her. I will recommend this provider to anyone.
