Home Instead was our caregivers of my husband Gail. When they came into our home they gave our lives back so we could have a relationship with Gail before he passed. I will be indebted to them forever. They are very respectful of the patient and their family. The young man T was like a son to me. And he will be always welcome back into our home. My husband was so relaxed with him being at Gail side. God Bless this group of people. Sincerely, Dian Cogdill

We just hired Home Instead for my mom. So far, it has been good. It has only been two days, so it is basically just training. The girl that they sent was really receptive. On the second day, she came and did a bunch of organizing. I did just talk to the company about switching to a 24-hour shift because that is a little bit more cost effective for us. We're going to start in August.

We have Home Instead Senior Care. They really have very good people. They make every effort. If you have a change of plans or something happens, they always will take care of it.
