    Home Instead has been a life saver. 24/7 my care is completed by them. I have never been so fortunate as now with a caregiver staying until the next caregiver arrives to replace. I have not been alone day or night. I have never had a company as good as Home Instead, they are such a Godsend. Last but not least, my Caregivers have all been caring, productive with every need of the day and night. Not afraid to get their hands dirty or sit down at meal time to share a meal, they are the best! My daily experience is the best of the best and they always bring a smile to my face. P.S. my outings with my caregivers can be every day, doctor appointments, therapy and above all every Sunday attend church. I get my wheelchair strapped down properly and securely and it makes a world of difference in my security in life.

    Home Instead has been very helpful in meeting my needs to be able to remain in my home. Case Manager Angel is a sweetheart and has really worked with Caregivers to know how to work with my specific needs. Being in Steuben County, it's been great having Caregivers from afar to get services up and going. Caregivers have been very helpful and especially Jade R., Cathy B., Kelly B., and Samantha T.

    Home Instead has been very helpful, helping us care for an elderly parent with early dementia still living in her own home. Minerva visits twice per week, providing hygiene help, companionship, & fixing supper. Much needed break for the family caregivers that live next door. Would recommend Home Instead services without hesitation.

    I began receiving care from Home Instead after breaking both legs in a fall. They have provided excellent care givers who have met my needs and assisted with helping me become more independent. Rhonie, Beth, and May were outstanding. Anticipating my needs and following my schedule in every way. I couldn't have done without them during a truly devastating time. Their positive attitudes and encouragement helped me move ahead with getting my life back on track. Thank you, April and Eric. I am and will always be most grateful to you both.

    My parents don't speak English very well, but Home Instead was able to find a provider R who can speak with them in their native language. That's been a huge help, since my parents didn't get along with previous care providers from a different organization. R is amazingly useful to my parents. He helps make sure they take their medications. He helps drive them for shopping and doctors appointments and even goes with them to the doctor to help translate. He is super responsive and texts me with updates and questions. He is also proactive in noticing things like when my mom got scam phone calls. I am glad and feel safe that my parents are cared for so well.

    I recently had the pleasure of engaging the services of a remarkable home care company, and I am thrilled to share my experience with others. From the moment I reached out to Home Instead, I was impressed by their outstanding communication and the genuinely warm and professional nature of their staff and owner. One of the standout qualities is their exceptional communication. Right from the initial inquiry, they were prompt and attentive, ensuring all my questions were answered thoroughly. They demonstrated a remarkable level of responsiveness and made the entire process incredibly smooth. Whether it was via phone calls, emails, or in-person meetings, their care team always made me feel valued and heard. Their open and transparent communication style gave me peace of mind, knowing that my father's needs were their top priority. The staff at Home Instead are truly a cut above the rest. Not only are they highly skilled and knowledgeable in their field, but they also bring a friendly and compassionate approach to their work. Their genuine concern for the well-being and happiness of my father was evident in every interaction. They took the time to get to know him as an individual, understanding his preferences, routines, and specific care requirements. This personalized approach made a significant difference in the quality of care provided. The professionalism exhibited by the caregivers was exemplary. They maintained the highest standards of ethics and integrity throughout the entire caregiving process. Their expertise and attention to detail were evident in every aspect of their work, from providing reminders for medication to assisting with daily tasks. I was particularly impressed by their ability to balance friendliness with professionalism. They created a comfortable and positive atmosphere, fostering a strong bond with my father, while still ensuring that all caregiving responsibilities were carried out efficiently. Moreover, the company's commitment to ongoing training and education for their staff was commendable and evident. It was clear that they continuously strive to improve and stay updated with the latest practices and techniques in home care for each individual patient. This dedication to professional development further solidified my trust in their abilities. April always know exactly which solution would work for my father and had the confidence to recommend and explain her reasoning. In conclusion, I wholeheartedly recommend Home Instead to anyone seeking exceptional care for their loved ones.

    Following a hospital stay, our mom was going to need some daily assistance ongoing to stay in her home. We contacted Home Instead and they made the process smooth to figure out exactly what kind of care mom needed and how much. Her care is six days a week for just a couple hours to prep breakfast/lunch, clean up a little, fill the birdseed, etc. Any requests we’ve made have been handled well by either the caregiver or Home Instead. Mom’s first caregiver, Lettica, still comes a couple days a week and she is so fond of her. They share a few laughs; mom gets a meal and her beloved coffee. Other days she enjoys having Bonita and Crystal take good care of her. We are grateful to these wonderful folks.

    My father was in assisted living but need extra individual care. It was difficult to visit him during Covid years and the caretakers from Homestead safely provided the extra care he needed. He had physical issues which made it difficult for him to walk around by himself. The caretakers helped him dress and enabled him to go the group dining room and have meals with the other residents. As he became more impaired, the caretakers made sure he ate his meals and helped him with his personal grooming. In the last few weeks of his life, our case worker made sure we had enough caretakers to comfort him during the times we had to take a break were unable to be present. They made a very difficult time easier to cope with.

    Dad has been using Home Instead for almost 2 years. He is able to stay in his house because of the great care he is receiving from Home Instead. Dad had a stroke 10 years ago and has partial use of his dominant hand. He has two different caregivers, Kathy and Margaret. Both are excellent caregivers. Kathy has been with Dad the longest. She goes to the grocery which is a big help to me. Dad always looks forward to seeing them and I feel confident that his needs are being met. Sarah

    Home Instead provided care to my mom for 2 years and then for my dad for 3 months. Connie is still considered part of our family. For my mom, they helped bathe, dress, and feed her. It allowed all of us to be together as a family. For my dad, they did the same and also helped me get him to and from his frequent doctor appointments. They helped with all the cooking, cleaning, and laundry. I will be forever grateful to the whole Home Instead team for helping me take care of my loved ones.

    We would like to have known more about the process of deciding what caregiver they send to a particular client. We would like to have known more about the people they sent before we met them for the first time, and my husband wishes he could have known how flexible they were with their schedules. Our primary caregiver, Bob, is very proactive in meeting my husband's needs, has very good time management skills, and motivates him to complete tasks and exercises. Bob accompanies him to many doctor appts, is quite attentive, and takes excellent notes.

    Home Instead made an enormous difference in the last 6 months of our mother’s life. They provided a caregiver 7 days a week for 4 hours. She was always punctual and helpful in letting us know how mom’s day was going. When we had schedule changes, Home Instead was quick and responsive. We had peace of mind that Dianna would be there everyday. This made the simplest things a lot less stressful for the family members who were ‘on the ground’ daily. Mom’s caregiver was dedicated, kind, gentle and understood the the mindset of our mother. She was a tremendous comfort to mom and to the family. We are so thankful for the excellent care she and Home Instead provided.

    We were very pleased with the caregiver of Home Instead. There was a little communication problem initially in getting things set up. We were told they were going to start out on the Wednesday before Thanksgiving, but they didn’t have it on the schedule after I was assured that was taken care of. People were supposed to call me back, and they didn’t. Finally, I got a hold of the lady, who I initially had talked to at our home, and she told me that somebody was going to be here on Monday after Thanksgiving, which she did. Then we really liked the caregiver, and we’d have her come back again if we could. We just had some communication bumps in getting started with them.
