Very caring. Helped my mother. I approached Home Instead for my mother's care due to what patients I have treated at home (PT) who were receiving services and were very pleased.

Excellent! Could not have been more satisfied with the service that was given to my mother. We are so appreciative of the kindness and support of the staff. Special thanks to Lynn M. and Vanita for their care and compassion and made a difficult situation a lot more manageable.

Home Instead has been caring for my mom for several months now (close to a year) and my parents love them. They are very caring, knowledgeable, professional and accommodating. The entire staff from management to the caregivers is outstanding!

The care coordination was excellent. They handled problems (which are unavoidable) very well. Most of the aides we had were wonderful and they deal with any issues that arose very quickly and with compassion and skill.

We have a very good helper. We had another company prior to them. I was just horrified with the other company. But Home Instead came in and relieved me of any problems with the care.

She is one of the best we ever had. The house looks great as she gets the job done the right way. Also she goes out of her way to make sure things are done. She does not hurry so she can't just sit like the others.

Barbara Coris comes to do my medicine once a week. She is a beautiful person with an equally beatiful heart. I can't thank her & all of my caregivers enough.

I would commend the caregivers and Lynn McDermott, the care coordinator for their excellent service. My 92 year old mother was well cared for, comfortable and felt safe. The caregivers were kind, attentive, and always kept my mom's place tidy. I would highly recommend them!

The caregivers could not have been better. They felt as if they were friends, except for the night person whom I never saw as I was asleep.

We are current clients of Home Instead Senior Care. Their staff are very considerate of our needs and prompt in resolving any issues. They are very knowledgeable of government procedures and how to get the best solutions. Thanks for the great care.

Ann knew clients like my mother, who don’t have family close by needed extra help. She hired a fantastic coordinator, Lynn. She in turn has found and managed an excellent caregiver. Perfect service.

My caregiver is wonderful and I call her 'My Angel'. She does everything for me. I am 86 years old and my family is out of state. Because of Home Instead I am able to stay in my home that I love. Thank you does not say enough.

We have been using Home Instead for my mother for about 4 years. They started with her in the toughest of times when she could not care for her self needs at all to now when she needs basically supervision and companionship. They are always very professional and do their best to work with us so that we have consistancy of caregivers. I work in the home health field in Oakmont and Verona and have the opportunity to see these employees in other peoples homes as well and they are always very professional and reliable. I recommend them often

I Used this agency for 3 years. In the beginning they were excellent. Once we had the caregiver that we just loved and my parent was comfortabe with her thy would pull that caregiver and put a new kne in . When I called to complain I got a letter that they could no loger meet my parents needs They claim yo be great with alzheimers patient, but that is the worse thing they can do is switcg caregjver once they are comfortabe with them and then tell the caregiver it was because she madd to much money to take cars of a PDA waiver patient.

Home instead provided care to my father for around 1.5 yrs. He had severe strokes and many hospital/rehab stays. All of the caregivers were wonderful and reliable. The staff who read Oakmont Home Instead were absolutely genuine. They were always able to help me last minute. I never hesitate to recommend this agency.

Home Instead has been, literally, a life-saver for my father, and a sanity-saver for me. My father has a type of dementia (not Alzheimer’s) that is difficult to diagnose and has no therapy, medication or even awareness of its existence among many medical and psychiatric professionals. Our Home Instead caregiver has gone out of her way many times to help us protect Dad from himself and his dementia, setting up routines, taking him to doctor visits and grocery shopping, and running many other errands with him. She has been my safety net and voice of reason during many times when I felt overwhelmed with the enormous burden of dealing from a distance with all of the details surrounding my father’s care needs and condition. Our caregiver is providing better care than I ever could, keeping Dad among his remaining friends, and maintaining his quality of life as best as it can be with his condition. I have recommended Home Instead to many other friends and family in my “sandwich” generation who are trying to care for (local or long distance) an elderly relative who for whatever reason needs to be at “home instead” of in assisted living or a nursing home.

I live out of state and hired Home Instead to provide personal care for my 90 year old mother, 3hours/day, 7days/week. The primary care giver, Mary, treated my mother as if she were family. Her actions were far above "the job". We were blessed to have had her.The substitute caregivers were professional and compassionate. The office always kept me informed of changes in scheduling and responded to my concerns in a timely manor. I would highly recommend this Senior Care provider. They gave me peace of mind knowing that my mother was always in good hands.

Responsive, flexible, reliable, professional. Caregivers were excellent; Mom became good friends with one of them. They went above and beyond for us. We had an issue with the first caregiver, and it was dealt with immediately. The office stayed in touch frequently. I recommend them highly.
