    The administrator of Home Instead Senior Care in Blairsville, Georgia was and is very attentive to my personal services that I needed. The caregiver he assigned to assist me in living at my home is very professional and knowledgeable and provides me with excellent individualized attention. I am blessed beyond measure to have her in my home seeing to and meeting my special needs.

    The office staff at Home Instead are professional, accessible, and knowledgeable. They went the extra mile to support us as we went through the difficult process of starting the service. My parents were extremely resistant to care in the home, although they needed it desperately. The office staff invested time in understanding the situation and being there with the caregivers to insure a smooth start. After that, we were amazed at the quality of the caregivers themselves. They are well-trained, extremely responsive to my parents' needs and great at problem-solving. We have been receiving service for 10 hours/day for almost four months and my parents love their caregivers. Home Instead has been a huge blessing to my whole family.

    I hired Homestead to come into my home and help with my Grandfather who lived with me. Homestead was so easy to work with and very accommodating to our needs. I highly recommend them .

    We found Home instead for our family in order for them to stay in their home while facing dementia and other ailments. We had tried independent people but we were constantly faced with having to find replacements because of various problems. When we found Home Instead they took that burden away from us. We have been pleased with the care that they have received. Light housekeeping, driving to town to shop, and doctors appointments all have helped them to stay somewhat independent since they had lost the ability to drive. We appreciate Home Instead that they have helped them transition to this stage of life and helped us to get there. We have them 3 days a week now but as they require more assistance, Home Instead will be there for us. Thank you to all of those at Home Instead making life better for families.

    I'm pleased to share our experience with HomeInstead. Andrew W. is truly amazing, in a world that is full of disappointments. For almost two years he has provided the professional help that he said he would. No challenge has been too great. And there have been challenges for my wife, who has Parkinson's. I seldom have the opportunity to share good news and I'm happy to recommend HomeInstead for the needs of your loved one. God Bless you caregivers and those that you care for. J Driskell

    I am so thankful that I stopped in to speak to Andrew W. and staff at Home Instead Senior Care in Blairsville. It was the day that I realized we needed help caring for my mother during her last few days of her battle with pancreatic cancer. The minute I walked in the door, I was greeted and made to feel that the most important thing to them was to help my mother. Their concern was genuine and I can not describe the relief I felt when I knew that help was on the way! When the health care professionals came to assist with my mother's care, they were knowledgable, helpful and very caring until my mothers death - not only to my mother, but to me and my brothers as well. I will always recommend Andrew and his staff to anyone that I feel may benefit from their services!

This plan is reviewed regularly and adjusted to meet changing needs.

These visits offer seniors a time to enjoy meaningful conversation while engaging in a game of cards, a puzzle, time outdoors, or other activities.
