Wonderful caring staff. They care for the ill person and for the caregiver. Prompt and courteous, helpful and supportive, answering questions and concerns based on training and experiences they may have had. It has taken so much pressure off of me that I did not realize I was under. I couldn’t be happier with the care we’re receiving.

The service was excellent. I was especially pleased with the care taken to match my dad with a compatible caregiver. I highly recommend this company to others who want to keep their family member at home.

We have been with Home Instead Senior Care for 2 years now, and have been very happy with the wonderful care they have provided my mother. The caregiver's are well trained, caring, and compassionate. The office staff is kind, courteous, professional, and quick to respond to our every need. I would highly recommend this company to care for anyone's loved one.

Angela is a very valuable asset to the Thomasville office. She promptly addressed any issues/problems I brought to her attention. I would suggest that all caregivers who work for a client have each other's cell phone numbers so they can communicate with each other regarding issues relating to the client.

I chose Home Instead in Valdosta because I had heard good things about them in my location in Florida. I needed something notarized the first visit (not pertaining to them or their services, yet Jack H. brought his office manager to my parents home to assist us. That told me a lot about them since at that time I had not hired Home Instead! I was pleased with the time they took to get to know my parents and their needs. They picked the most wonderful person to stay with my mom. It was a perfect blend of personalities, and allowed my dad to leave the house for a few hours everyday to do what he wanted. Even after my dad died, and my mom came to live with me, Jack has stayed in touch and sends me information and webinars related to my mom's issues. I would highly recommend them to anyone looking for good in-home care of a loved one.
