Homeinstead is a great company that assisted my Mom for many years. They assisted her in many ways. Someone came every friday to take her to her hairdresser.They did her laundry,changed her bed linens. She also had a cook twice a week which was good for Mom. It was also easy to set up a driver for doctor appts. Great company with her children living out of state. I would recommend this company to anyone who needs help...caring and very thoughtful employees.

Home instead stayed with me when m y daughter had to work after I broke my shoulder before my rehab program was complete. They helped me with personal hygiene, light housekeeping, meal prep, and companionship until my daughter came home from work so that I wasn't afraid to be home alone. The staff was always on time, friendly and caring. The agency is always easy to work with and it was simple to change schedules If I needed to because of my daughters work schedule or doctor appointments for myself.

My aging mother fell for about the fifth time and insisted on being back home to live her life. We engaged Home Instead and could not have been happier with the care they gave. They put together a daily schedule that included grocery shopping, meal preparation, house cleaning and taking her on errands. It gave all of my brothers and sisters the piece of mind we needed to know she was being well taken care of and living life the way she desired. Thanks Home Instead, we will be back. We are all getting older too.

Such a caring group of providers. Everyone from the top down was so efficient and organized. Very patient and understanding. I will turn to them again for sure as we need them down the road. I very much would recommend them for their services! Thanks to all!

Home Instead has really taken a lot of worry and pressure off of our family, who all live out of state. They ensure our parents make it to appointments, as well as helping them with shopping and doing things as independently as possible. The caregivers are wonderful, understanding, and reliable. You can count on Home Instead!

I needed a caregiver to stay overnight after outpatient surgery. Everything went great, I would use them again.

Jerri and the Home Instead team of care providers were attentive, compassionate and responsive to my needs & concerns for my dad's overnight care. It is a great comfort to know I have their help if I need it again.

Everyone that was sent out to take care of Gerda did a fantastic job. When they were with her, they made sure that all of her needs were taken care of. I remember a time the night person was sick and couldn't come and Jerri (the owner) came out and stayed overnight with her. Everyone was compassionate and truly cared for Gerda. This is a company I would highly recommend to anyone who has a loved one that needs assistance. Thank you Home Instead for making me feel so comfortable leaving Gerda when I couldn't be there!

From the initial visit by Geri, the owner visited with us in person for as long as we could think of questions, answering each one fully before going to the next point. From the care by Lorraine, 100% caring, competent, flexible, and taking initiative appropriately.

This Home Instead office is outstanding. From my very first call two years ago for respite care to weekly and then bi-weekly service. Everyone is helpful. Caregivers are professional and awesome people.

I used Home Instead Senior Care. They were outstanding and exactly what I needed. I used them three times over the past two months. They provided transportation to and from the hospital following surgery and a pharmacy run. The caregivers are excellent. I’m not using them on a regular basis, but if you need someone to escort you home after surgery and make sure everything is all set up, they’re excellent for that.

Thank you to all of the caregivers and staff. Marion received excellent care. What I really liked was that each caregiver was able to meet her needs differently. She was just getting to know Sue but was grateful for her kind gentle care and liked her very much. She loved the way she's cleaned. She loved how Mary would do her fingernails for her. Each caregiver had a special thing; they did not just follow a care plan.

The owner Jerri quickly responded to our family needs and in one day had in place caregivers for my elderly mother. Very kind caring ladies visited with my mother in her final days. My hubby heard them laughing like young school girls one night. What a blessing for us.

Excellent! Terri was always quick to respond to questions, requests, and need for personal visits. Schedulers were very flexible and never made me feel I was too demanding or out of line, CNAs were almost uniformly capable, cooperative and compassionate.

Home Instead was the support I needed to care for my husband. Enabling him to stay at home rather than in a care facility. The compassionate, respectful care was a blessing to us both.

All three ladies that were the caregivers to my wife during the month of February were excellent. I would hire Home Instead again when the need arises.

The Colorado Springs team provided invaluable help, care and support for my partner during the last three weeks of her life along with hospice. They were superb at every level. Office staff was outstanding and very responsive. I would be happy to say more but would prefer to do so in a more private way. A card like this is a little too public.

Home Instead is fantastic. They’re keeping very good track of my mother-in-law and notifying us about issues that they see. I am very pleased that we have them in her home. They’re getting her meals, companionship, minor exercise, and light housework. I took the recommendation from somebody who’s already using them, and just from the care that I’ve seen extended to my mother-in-law, I would be more than happy to recommend them to others.

The company staff from president to caregiver was very professional and helpful. They were there for my mom and provided great care for her until I was able to pick her up and take her to an assisted living facility. I am VERY thankful for them - they were a Godsend!!!

We can't thank Home Instead enough for the quality care their caregivers gave to our mom. Not only did they become our friends, they became part of our family. Because of Home Instead our mom was able to stay in her home for over a year longer than anticipated.

We have Home Instead for my dad. They take him to the gym every day, clean up the house, talk to him, help him dress, and make him lunch. The caregivers follow directions and do what I've asked them to do. My dad seems to enjoy them. One of the things that we had to work on was a way for them to communicate with me about how my dad was doing each day, so we instituted a notebook system.

From the first phone call to do my shopping for a home health care service, Home Instead was very informative and caring. My husband and I gave Home Instead a high rating because: 1.The owner personally came to meet my mother so the caregiver assigned was compatible. 2. We have had two caregivers and whenever I have my mother in their care, I have never worried a minute.

I'm using Home Instead Senior Care for about three months now. They provided us a caregiver as well as a backup person, and that seems to be working well. They are assisting with my mother's meal preparation and shopping. We really don’t have any complaints at all. I would certainly recommend them.

They provided care for my 96 year old mother. We enjoyed the most wonderful, competent, and professional caregivers from Home Instead. They made it possible for my mother to live by herself in her own home.

The primary caregiver who worked with us deserves far more than five stars; she is remarkable. She was conscientious, caring and loving. The drawback to this location--and the reason for four stars--is the scheduling. Even though we were long-term clients, the scheduler consistently moved people around on our schedule, thus creating inconsistency and confusion for my mother. When questioned about it, she was not receptive to suggestions. Apart from that, our experience with Home Instead was very positive.

I needed immediate help over Christmas for my 94-year-old friend who had fallen & wasn’t doing well. Mary & Mandy doing well. Mary and Mandy got right on it did a wonderful job finding the staff to do the job. Everyone who helped my friend was so kind and caring and professional. I can’t thank them enough!!!

We greatly appreciate all of the help that Theresa from Home Instead has given to our mom since she was injured last Fall. It is such a comfort to know that my mom is being well-cared for!

Very displeased with their services. Against our better judgement we stuck with them for four months to which each month proved that they are unable to redirect and manage our family member with Alzheimer's.
Provider Response

Thank you so much for bringing this issue to our attention. I'm sorry your experience wasn't what you had hoped for. We work very hard in our office as well as in the field to provide the best quality care.

We hire and train all of our CAREGivers with the highest standards in the industry and we have a select team of CAREGivers that provide services for our Alzheimer’s clients. As well as our Client Care Manager has routine CAREGiver supervisory and quality assurance visits to ensure we continue to meet these standards.

I highly recommend any other company "instead" of this company. I hired home instead for my grandparents for some basic care and one on one for an Alzheimer patient the CNAS that came to our home did not have Alzheimer knowledge that the owner had promised and were not reliable on set times and schedule. When speaking to owner she was unprofessional, showed no comparison and showed no humanity to my complaints. Company and owner clearly were all about the money would not recommend for your love ones.

One lady did no interaction with my grandmother she sat at the table and watch violent movies and shows that agitated my grandmother who has Alzheimer's.

I chose Home Instead because my husband wanted a male caregiver. It did not take long for them to provide the service, it's the insurance approval that took time. They provided bedding and grooming, washing and bathing him. He comes twice a week for about 6 weeks now. The caregiver was very pleasant, polite and respectful which is important. He is therefore a good match for my husband.
