Service, facilities and care givers all excellent. Only issue we had was clarity of details (meal times, furniture, etc.) coming out of their "sales" process.

I don't know how we could have managed without HomeInstead. The Caregivers were completely reliable, kind, and patient, under difficult circumstances. Management was always available, responsive, and on top of things. After nightmares with other caregivers, HomeInstead made my life manageable again and gave me peace of mind that my mother was well taken care of even though I lived far away. I highly recommend them.

Home Instead service is great. People are loving, and always on time. Care for my mom has been superior and she loves them too.

In a nutshell caregivers are thoughtful, empathetic, skilled and the office staff are helpful and quick to respond to accounting questions. Our primary caregiver Brenda, has assisted my husband and I for nearly four years. She is wonderful and we could not function without her. Brenda has adapted to the needs of two people with distinctively varied physical disabilities. Brenda ALWAYS arrives a few minutes prior to the start of her shift, never late. Depending on our personal schedules she works at organizing the day, which includes, but not limited to: preparing meals with our different dietary preferences; tidying the house; dressing; grooming; chauvering; laundering; shoppping; exercising; walking; gardening; waiting; conversing; repairing; corresponding, etc. with skill, experience and good humor. We benefit from her awareness to mechanical problems indoors and out prior to becoming obstacles. We consider her a member of our family. In her absence we have been extremely happy with Barbara, Judy and Amy, all of which we would gratefully accept as permanent replacement for Brenda if her availability changed.
