I arranged Home Instead to spend a few hours each week with my 90+ year old mother. I am some 2,000 miles away, so having someone reliable and trustworthy was the utmost importance. Home Instead has surpassed my expectations. The caregiver Linda is great with my mother, and will do just about anything for her. I have written to Home Instead a least a couple times complimenting the service. I am impressed that she gets the same caregiver week after week.

The Caregivers that came to help take care of my Aunt were just terrific. They were very respectful and attentive. They brought joy and fun into the house with them. It seemed to me that the caregivers payed attention to the way my Aunt liked things and did their best to fit into her life and not push her to change to theirs.

Extremely compassionate and attentive caregivers. We had 24 hr care for a month for my parents following my dad's recent hip fracture. My mother has dementia and could not assist my dad. I found I could trust them explicitly to follow through with all facets of my parent's care including medication, showers, dressing, laundry. Assisting with meals. Making sure they used their walkers. Monitoring my dad for symptoms like swelling of his leg. Caregivers were able to transport my parents to doctors appointments. They were our eyes and ears and always notified us whenever there were issues that required our attention. We are grateful we have access to such wonderful caregivers who we can rely on if and when we need assistance again.

We wanted to thank Home Instead for helping us get through this tough time with our Dad. The staff we had were all caring and professional. Vivian was innovative - always thinking of ways to make our Dad's end of life the best it can be!

My entire experience with Home Instead/Shelby office was wonderful. Victoria always took the time to chat, and to not only check on my dad, but to ask how I was doing as well. Dad's care givers, Paul, Chris, Tom and Dan were so loving, kind and caring. I would recommend Home Instead to anyone looking for care for their loved ones. Truly a positive experience!!!!

Home Instead was a great agency. I used them for one week. The owner came out and sat with us for a long time to talk about what we needed. They set up a team of people who were able to work on the days that we needed coverage. It worked out really well. They were very comfortable to work with. They even did everything that we hoped they would do. They did it in a very caring and timely way. The agency's management of scheduling and billing was very smooth. It was a good experience.

We have been happily associated with Home Instead for 4 years. Diana - my mom's caregiver is a wonderful person and an excellent caregiver. She was my mom's friend and our security. It was a very good relationship.
