I am a past client of this provider

I explored different senior care agencies online. Brett from Home Instead in Wauwatosa, WI called me and gave me information about your agency and also a referral to someone who helped me find long-term care for my mother. The caregivers from Home Instead were dependable, knowledgeable and kind to my mom. I was so grateful for their support.

Home Instead Transport and Senior Care played a very important role in helping my mother receive timely intervention 9/30/2014 for a broken arm. While mom wa at the Froedtert Cancer Center for routine appointments the Oncology RN recognized the reason mom could not move her arm was because her cancer had dissolved away the bone until it was now broken. Home Instead stayed with mother until x-ray could comfirm and caregiver Janelle wrote me a detailed report! She stayed through dinner with mom as needed.

Home Instead (HI) staff is courteous, easy to work with, helpful, knowledgeable, and understanding. You can always reach someone by telephone. HI was very helpful in assessing patient and medical equipment needs. Staff went above and beyond the call of duty to help us when hospice told us dad would no longer receive hospice services in 2 weeks. As I scrambled to make arrangements, HI staff helped by making phone calls and getting names and telephone numbers for me to arrange a new Dr. and medical equipment. They are great listeners and problem solvers. I can't thank them enough for being there for us.

This is my third time using Home Instead Milwaukee. Since this is my third time, I have picked out my special caregivers. There are 3-4 ladies that I feel have excellent caregiving qualities. They stand out in my opinion so I make sure to call ahead of time to book them when the time comes. Jennifer, Valerie, Melanie, and Katheryn - Thank you.
