I am a past client of this provider

From the beginning all staff members have been caring and understanding. When the need came to increase the shifts from rise and tuck to an afternoon shift as well was told we will work on it right away. When we then needed to have 24 hour care due to injury to my father was told not a problem will work on this right away. All staff that came into the home are caring and made sure my mother was well cared for. From the beginning I have been impressed by all from the office staff to the Home Health aides that came into the home and have spoken highly to others looking for home care of a loved one.

Home Instead made my father's last days so enjoyable and peaceful. I live out of state and it gave me great comfort to know that dad was in such great hands.

The people from this office, from caregivers through office staff, provided excellent, professional compassionate care from day one until and after my father’s passing. I would recommend them without a moment’s hesitation.

The service provided was excellent. Penney came punctually everyday (6 days/wk) and worked very hard. She is a very positive and friendly person, accepted all kinds of jobs with a smile and set to immediately. She took to an unusual family and setting, regarding it as a "learning experience."
