I am a current client of this provider
I am responding as the Individual who is receiving great support from provider. She comes to my apartment twice a week -- 2 hours each time. I am over 90 years old and walk with a cane. I can't drive and caregiver takes me shopping each Monday morning to buy groceries for the week. She comes on Wednesday to be close by when i take a bath and wash my hair. We have come to be great friends with similar senses of humor and comfortable talking about almost anything with each other -- offering real insight into issues that need to be faced in any family.

I am a past client of this provider
My mother who had Parkinson's Disease wanted to remain in her home as long as possible. With the help of the caregiver from Home Instead, she not only received some much needed help with her personal care and household, she also had a wonderful companion who she related to very well. She laughed, talked about her fears, sang and shared some wonderful memories with her caregiver and new friend.
