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.
