All of the staff at North Platte Home Instead from Mary Jo and Steve, all the caregivers, and the ladies who answered the phone, were just wonderful. Personable, professional, punctual, and skilled -- all of them.

A big Thank You to Kayla for assisting me getting all his care set up. She was great to work with and really cared about my dad. Samatha that actually works with clients was awesome for my dad. She took excellent care of my dad. Steve heads everything for this office and he was so great too, to work with too,

The care that my mom received was awesome. They always tried to work with my schedule so I could keep my job during the day. If there was a care provider that my mom clashed with, they found someone else. That only happened once. We were very pleased how they cooked, cleaned and exercised my mom. They helped with bathing and read to her. All in all, I give them an A+.

Home Instead is doing an excellent job. We're very happy with them. Mom is 88. They help her clean the house, the nooks and crannies, they help her run loads of laundry because it's downstairs. They've been very personable. Joan, from the office, is always available when I have questions. They do have a little extra touch and they always have time to talk if I have a concern.
