I totally recommend HomeInstead as a superb organization. Both my wishes for Dad's care AND his wishes were listened to and acted on. His primary carer was truly his guardian angel, as well as mine. I live 3500 miles away from Dad and HomeInstead's care gave me great peace of mind. Dad's primary carer went above and beyond the call of duty, especially during the aftermath of Hurricane Sandy. Dad has now moved into a dementia unit of a care home as his needs became too great to allow him to stay in his home; otherwise, HomeInstead would still be in our lives.
