When you need to get away from your loved one these people are so good, caring, and helpful. My husband didn't want a "babysitter" but when these ladies come, they give him the time and attention and he gets spoiled. After they leave he continues to talk about his staff person telling about how great they were. I feel very comfortable leaving him and I really enjoy the break.

I am so thankful that we entrusted Home Instead of Norfolk, Nebraska with the care of my mother for these last 3+ years. We were so fortunate to have had them provide the delicate care for my live-at-home 95 year old mother. She may have greeted her care-givers with scorn but the care-givers provided her with smiles and comforting words. Gradually she adapted to their in-house care and presence! The Home Instead group was our "Dream Team" when we saw her mentally slipping away. They were mom's trusted family and keepers when my wife and I could not be there. They lightened the load on our SHOULDERS when she was at home and later when she was at an assisted living facility and when hospice was called during mom's last days! My heart-felt gratitude goes to these 'bestest' care-givers; Lynn, Linda and dearest Jill! You three and the Home Instead support staff have a special place in our hearts! Bill and Lu, Norfolk, NE

Home Instead Senior Care cared for my mother for over six years until her passing in May of 2013. Her care began with a few hours a week of house work and companionship and advanced as needed until she was receiving 24 hour care. Towards the end this included personal care while she was in hospice.
The team that cared for her was incredible! This includes both those who were with her and those who worked behind the scenes insuring that there was always some one there - and not just anyone - but the right person for what my mom wanted and needed.
No matter the issue, Home Instead patiently worked with us to ensure that her needs were met and that she was happy with her caregivers. Her care givers always conducted themselves professionally, but were so caring and so often went above and beyond the job requirements that they became more like friends and family.
I will forever be grateful for the wonderful job they did for us which allowed my mother to achieve what was so very important to her - that she remain in her own home and live with dignity throughout her days.
I strongly recommend their service.
