Staff and caregiver are wonderful. Staff made sure that my brother's needs were met and family needs met. This was not a one-time check. It was continual. They didn't send someone to fill in more time needed because they wanted excellent match.

My parents are 101 and 98 respectively and live in the home my brothers and I grew up in. We have received wonderful care for my parents through the caregivers provided by A Home Instead, and the nurse who works with my parents, Dottie, has been superb. Thank you, A Home Instead.

Home Instead provided a caretaker for my wife for 18 months. This is a quality firm that does everything right. I strongly recommend them.

I use this service for my elderly parents, one of whom has dementia and the other of whom has limited mobility. Home Instead is staffed by very responsive staff who thoughtfully work with families to place caregivers. I have peace of mind knowing that there is accountability in the system. Shelley and Karen at the HomeInstead office in Chicago are particularly professional, competent and understanding. It is difficult to match caregivers with families but Home Instead does their best. Our family has had good luck with the current set of caregivers placed with us. Very competent overnight caregivers were placed very quickly when the need arose. One happened to be available within one day and became a regular for a five-night-a-week schedule, and another was available in time for remaining needed two nights per week. and also became a regular. I don't think it gets better than Home Instead.

The care and warmth given by Home Instead Senior Care is without peer! My particular caregiver, Pam S,. was so easy to have around and so open to anything I asked for. The whole experience really was like having a true old friend in my home.

Personnel are most courteous, professional and caring when I have contact with them. My uncle is the client. He is a somewhat difficult person with whom to deal, but all caregivers seemed to do their best for him, as far as I can tell.

Our caregiver Liz is exceptional. Not only does she follow my instructions she also sees and executes tasks. I have not even thought of her sunny, cheerful attitude that makes our aches and pains almost tolerable. She has literally rejuvenated two old people.

After our Dad passed away, we needed someone to stay with our Mom during the day. The staff at Home Instead matched us with a care giver who was perfect for Mom and her particular needs. For 3 years, Jean was reliable and provided Mom with the best of care and companionship. As Mom's care needs changed toward the end, the staff at Home Instead were able to provide us with the additional help that we needed - even within hours. We are so pleased to have found Home Instead! They were always available, caring, and supportive. We highly recommend Home Instead for any family looking for a caregiving provider that is reliable and responsive to their needs.

Home Instead came to the rescue when my mom, who has Alzheimer's, declined quickly and needed a caregiver. The office staff are responsive, understanding and work quickly to meet your needs. The caregivers are simply amazing - caring, friendly, patient and truly loving. I highly recommend Home Instead!
