My father had come to place in his journey when he was no longer able to care for himself, he did not want to leave his home, he had already had so many things he had to give up. Being able to have the care he needed in his home was such a blessing. King caring people who have become "family" are now beside us on our journey. My appreciation for the services which help keep seniors in their own comfortable surroundings.

Home Instead of Sioux Falls staff has provided incredible support and effort in providing my mom and dad with such excellent care. I can't begin to explain how much we have valued them and feel like they've become part of the extended family. We couldn't imagine what we would have done without Home Instead, and our parents have had valuable time in their home because of what they do. Its been a pleasure working with them. Their creative and flexible ways of working with me in navigating these waters of aging parents have allowed my folks to be in their home far longer than otherwise would have been possible. They provided a service that is truly life-changing for families.

I am a past client of this provider
We are very thankful for your service. After dad passed, we contacted your business to help be a companion to our mother as she dealt with dad's death. What we didn't realize is that our mother was dealing with Lewy Body Dementia. Home Instead turned from a companion service into a service to provide care for our mother. Each employee dedicated to assist our mom was truly professional and became a friend to mom. We eventually had to place mom into a care facility. Your service was there for all of us every step of the way. To be honest, there are too many things to say to be able to say them all. Quite simply, we could not have cared for our mother as good as we did without the help of your agency and its employees. I am speaking on behalf of my siblings and my wife, but we will be forever grateful. Thank you for everything!
