We had a very good and helpful experience with Home Instead. We certainly will call them when we are in need of their services again.

Our loved one was living in assisted living and working with hospice. We realized that the aides from the assisted living home were not doing the work that hospice was advising. We hired 24 hour care to be our eyes and ears when we could not be there. They helped us work with hospice to get the care our loved one needed. They were competent and caring and we could not be more pleased with the help they provided. A much needed service and one we were relieved to find.

My involvement with Home Instead was excellent. The way they were concerned and how the caregivers were doing. The caregivers were very professional on how they cared for my husband.

I appreciate sending caregivers as needed. I appreciate my caregivers, especially Joyce, who has been with me for 2 years. She is special.

The people from Home Instead Senior Care are doing a good job. They were really easy to hook up with and they seem very caring. They can provide minimal to full care service. We've been working with them for about three months now.

We ahve used personnel from At Home Instead for the past 2 yers for my father-in-law and found the sreice excellent with good followthrough on requests, respect and compassion for him. At 85 it has ben difficult for him to accept other presences in his home, but he has come to love Cheryl and look forward to seeing her every Tuesday. She plays with his dog, eats breakfast with him and does his laundry. We are currently anticipating increasing her hours because of his decline.
