This service has been hired to be with my brother who has lung cancer. The caregivers are with him 24 hours a day. They run errands for him, see to his meals, provide companionship for him. The staff is always on time, They are very responsive to requests or suggestions. The agency is very flexible in arranging schedules, adjusting to changes and replying very quickly to calls.

After a fall, my 95 year old uncle wanted to remain independent in his home. After several interviews, we elected Home Instead. They took details about his daily activities past and present and matched him with caregivers that would stimulate his recovery and also help with daily activities. His caregiver was a perfect match. She assisted in daily household activities, but more importantly, kept him active. She constantly found things for him to do whether getting out to explore new areas, gardening, running errands and even some yoga! Yes , yoga!. They really had wonderful bond and he thought of her like a daughter. Home Instead was also very responsive to last minute schedule changes. When my Uncle was hospitalized, they helped with care indviduals to come to the hospital and assist our family with his care. It was wonderful being able to leave him, and know that he was in good hand. I cannot be more thankful to each of the Home Instead staff members that helped him so that he as able to remain home and remain active. Such a Blessing. Thank You to each member of the Home Instead Staff.

Cousin Dianne was cared for by two stellar caregivers from Home Instead for almost 4 years. Sharon and Shannon contributed immeasurably to Dianne's quality of life. They helped with Activities of Daily Living in a genuinely caring way that also provided emotional support and friendship for Dianne during difficult times. When she needed more care and then 24-hour care, more Home Instead caregivers were scheduled to help. The Client Support Manager was excellent and I could talk to her about any issues. She came out to Dianne's apartment for care conferences, strategized with me on level of care questions, consulted with hospice, and was always there for advice and counsel. This was invaluable, since I was coordinating care from out of state. Everyone at the Home Instead office was also responsive and caring. I highly recommend Home Instead without reservations.

We needed sitters 24/7 and we had several different sitters and all were caring, and professional and acted like family when the family was not at the hospital. Most kept us informed of any changes that happened with our Mother. You'll never know how pleased and grateful my brother, sister and I were with Home Instead. I had to keep extending for help and Janet the scheduler was so kind and understanding of our situation. There is a high place in Heaven for all of these people.

Home Instead Senior Care is real nice. I had a caregiver the week after I asked for one. The caregiver bathes my mom, does some light housework, and cooks some of the meals. She's super nice, and she's perfect. She's just right there for them and does everything we had asked her to do.

I have a caregiver form Home Instead 6 days per week. I know that no one is perfect. However, I want and require cleanliness from my caregiver above everything else -- be it hands, hair and clothing while working in the kitchen and elsewhere.

My Mother's request was to remain in her home during her later years. I was able to fulfill her wishes with the help and assistance of Home Instead. It is not easy to trust your loved ones daily care to someone else. Private sitters and relatives eventually run their course but daily care must continue. After employing Home Instead, my family found the consistent care my Mother deserved. Each an every sitter from Home Instead exceeded our expectations. Exceptionally well trained, courteous, respectful, punctual, caregivers were provided each time. I highly recommend this exceptional professional company to anyone needing in home healthcare.

For the past 18 months, these wonderful, caring folks have looked after my wife, who has FTD (dementia), so I can go to church, shopping and other errands, and even on overnight business trips without worrying a bit about her care. They go above and beyond expectations on every visit. The office staff responds promptly and cheerfully to any request for changes to the schedule or additional visits, even on short notice. I couldn't do without them.

After several interviews with in-home care companies, Home Instead was a breath of fresh air. They seemed genuinely interested in the well being of my grandmother. In the interview, the staff member asked me all the relevant questions that her care givers would need. My grandmother absolutely loved the first person they sent over. She has a trust issue with strangers, but the lady they sent was the sweetest, most compassionate and attentive person we've had around her in years. To say that my grandmother and her care giver have an amazing relationship would be an understatement. She is a very stubborn woman and the care giver has gotten her to do things that her own family can't get her to do(such as remember to take her medicines that she "forgets"). Home Instead is an amazing company and I would have no problem recommending them to any one who is in need of a home health aide or even a companion. This company is absolutely a blessing!
