    I previously had really bad experiences with home health care companies in FT Myers, I finally tried Home Instead and they have been great. Very responsive, they do a great job at hiring good people who care for the client and they are sensitive to changing needs of the client. I wish I came to Home Instead first, but so glad to be using their services now

    We use Home Instead-Ft Myers, FL to give companion care to our mother since we all live out of state and can not be close enough to care for her daily needs. Initially my mother was apprehensive about having a caregiver weekly, but it did not take long for her to rely on Karen from Home Instead, Ft Myers, FL. Karen communicated with my mother in a straightforward and caring manner, logged her activities, and kept medical appointments for my mother. She scheduled future appointments on the days she was with my mother and gave us peace of mind that my mother was being driven to appointments on time. She drove her to shopping centers and I know that her daily needs were being met from food preparation, grocery shopping to home companionship. We are very appreciative of Karen's caring nature as well as the office at Home Instead Fort Myers,FL. They are very professional and return phone calls and emails promptly. The billing is consistent and sent each month so there is no confusion. They made appointments to begin the process around our schedule and were able to place Karen within 2 weeks of our initial meeting. We are so grateful that we know our mother is being cared for and that care is consistent and communicated to her family.

    Deveda and Colleen have provided excellent care for my mom. Both are very caring and so kind to her. They have taken her to hair appointments and doctor appointments and even some Bible study at church. Just so very pleased with their compassion.

    We have found your service first rate. Up front things were explained well. Our caregiver has been diligent and personable. Your account liaison has been accessible and communicated all we need to know and has helped us keep our caregiver abreast of changing conditions with my father.

    Home Instead helps me care for my uncle. He has Fronto-Temporal Dementia (FTD). He doesn't trust many people or like many people but he really likes Edward from Home Instead. He views Edward as a trusted friend. We really appreciate all that Edward and Home Instead have done for my uncle.

    I am so thankful to have found Home Instead Sr. Care-Ft. Myers to provide a caregiver for my mother! They are kind, professional & willing to work with me from across the country to provide excellent care for Mom. I was able to discuss my concerns & Mom's needs over the phone and set up meetings for during my visit to FL. Since 10/1/18 things have run very smoothly: management has thoughtfully kept me current on Mom's situation - something very important when worrying about your Loved One in FL when living in CA. The caregiver is a wonderful person and really cares about Mom; we communicate directly, if needed. The office staff has been prompt and efficient. The only disappointment I have is that I used another company too long before I found the much higher quality of care provided by Home Instead Sr. Care of Ft. Myers!

    We began services for my Father out at the end of Captiva Fall/Winter 2016, suspended services over the Summer because my parents were SnowBirds, then resumed again Fall/Winter 2017 with 24 hour care, 7 days a week. The caring and compassionate Caregivers that have been a part of our Dream Team are some of the best women on earth. My Father enjoys their care, he feels safe, clean, cared for - he trusts them. And my mom enjoys their presence as well. The coordinator/scheduler, Shavon is the best of the best!! We have an intricate case, and her high level of attention to detail, listening skills and communication skills are truly the BEST I have experienced....and I have dealt with over 8 agencies. So far, Shavon and Home Instead have succeeded where most others have failed. Thank you; Shavon, Marisa, Sue, Laura, Abbie, Venessa, Kedisha, Rita, Theresa, Stephanie, Allaunah, Harley, Linda, Marilyn, Lisa, Paula, Selena, Cindy, Katia, Menda....I hope I did not for get anyo ne...With my heart, thank you for all you are doing for my Father's best life in his 90th year, and looking out for my Mom as well.

    I have had Home Instead for 3 weeks now. I am very happy with them. They give me medical assistance, and they help with minor house cleaning. They come 4 times a week, and so far, it's been very good.
