    We're using Home Instead. When I brought my brother home, someone was there waiting for him, and they immediately helped get things set up. They're cooking for him. He's clean when we see him. The people I've talked with have been nice and friendly. I've been pleased so far. They're coming in every day. They have two shifts. There have been three different ones who have been coming, the same girl in the morning, the same girl on the weekend, and I've only heard him speak of one person in the evening. They make sure that he takes his pills.

    This company provides home cleaning and do an excellent job. There are many other services available that we are not currently using, but it's nice to know they are there if we need them such as: cooking, helping with medicines, going to appointments, getting groceries, and other services also. The caregiver we presently have is amazing. She is always on time, does an excellent job of cleaning and is very sweet and easy to talk to. We couldn't ask for anyone better. We're very happy with this service.

    Kathy is a really great caretaker for my mom. She is kind and considerate of mom's feelings. In situations where my mom may be embarrassed, Kathy makes her feel comfortable. Kathy helps in any way she is asked. She is eager to please. Her patience is beyond expectations. She has listened to the same stories dozens of times and reacts as if it is the first time she has heard them. Kathy is an excellent match for my mom. She deserves much credit for all she does in helping keep my mom at home.

    If you get a superb caregiver, don't let the office take them from you. We feel constantly threatened that the best will be removed. Our needs will in all probability be short term since mom is failing rapidly. We don't want random caregivers who sit here on the iphones.

    On one occasion I was tremendously irked for lack of requested service in that I called HI to ask that Allen be contacted to see if he could come to work an hour earlier due to change in my needs. I called and talked with Andrew, asked him to call Allen and if he could not reach Allen to call me back so I could make other arrangements. The call never got to Allen nor to me. Allen reported this to Andrew and Andrew said it was written down but nobody followed through. 'Twas a most inconvenient situation- most disappointed in that I did not receive the services for which we pay

    I've worked with this agency before. This is the only agency in my area. They were very accommodating and friendly. I think we got their service for 2 weeks during daytime. They provided companionship and assistance around the house. However, we were a little frustrated because it was clear from the start that we don't want a smoker. They sent us a smoker because she lived near my mother. But she was very good. We didn't switched caregiver because my mom was getting better that time. We would definitely consider using them again in the future. I will also recommend this agency to others in my area.

    • Help with mobility, including standing, grooming, walking, and getting in and out of bed
    • Medication reminders
    • Assistance with activities of daily living (ADLs), including bathing, dressing, and toileting
    • Grocery shopping and assistance with other errands

    In some cases, personal care services may be combined with other services, including dementia or nursing care, depending on the clients’ health.

    Alzheimer’s and Dementia Care

    Home Instead employs experienced, trained Care Pros who are able to provide person- focused dementia care for seniors who are living with Alzheimer’s disease, Parkinson’s disease, or other forms of dementia. These Care Pros offer personal care services, along with the following:

    • Assistance in establishing a stable daily routine
    • Meal preparation
    • Positive reinforcement
    • Assistance with social skills
    • Transportation to and from appointments, errands, and visits with loved ones

    Care Pros in this role take time to understand clients’ life histories and to focus on the person they were before dementia. Just as with the company’s personal care services, each dementia care client undergoes a comprehensive assessment and is assigned a care plan. This plan is reviewed regularly and adjusted to meet changing needs.

    Hospice Support

    When a senior is nearing the end of their life, hospice support can be there to ensure the comfort of them and their family members. Hospice support Care Pros can help with hygiene, medication administration, and basic housekeeping for seniors, as well as provide nutritious meals and supportive care for family members, enabling loved ones to spend as much time with seniors as possible as they approach their final days or hours.

The company’s Meal Prep & Home Helper service can include assistance with tasks such as laundry, dusting, and vacuuming, as well as the preparation of nutritious meals that meet any dietary requirements set forth by clients’ healthcare providers.

    Transportation

    Home Instead provides safe transportation to and from clients’ destinations. Aging adults may use this service when they need help running errands such as grocery shopping or picking up a prescription, or when they’d simply like to spend the day shopping or visiting with friends. Transportation services from Home Instead can be arranged at predetermined drop-off and pick-up times, or Care Pros can accompany aging adults on errands and provide assistance and care throughout.

    Companionship

    Many aging adults face isolation and loneliness. This is especially true for those who’ve lost a spouse or who don’t have family close by. Home Instead Care Pros strive to build meaningful connections with clients. Companions visit seniors regularly on a schedule that works best for the client. These visits offer seniors a time to enjoy meaningful conversation while engaging in a game of cards, a puzzle, time outdoors, or other activities.

    What People Are Saying About Home Instead

    Clients and family members often speak highly of this agency’s dementia Care Pros and the attentive, compassionate care they provide to seniors. One family member provided a five- star review of the company, saying, “They have all been kind, caring, and attentive to my mom’s ever-changing needs that go along with her dementia. They have been with us and for us every step of the way. I would recommend them to anyone.”

    Other clients point to the meaningful relationships they’ve formed with Care Pros. One client said, “The lady who comes and helps me is wonderful. We get along really well and she is really nice. we also have a lot of fun together,” while another client’s family member provided a raving review of Home Instead, saying, “It was wonderful dealing with the staff. Charlene was extremely helpful and very accommodating to our needs and schedule. She worked very long and hard to make sure that everything was in order and everything would run very smoothly. She is still in contact with us and helping us in any way she can.”

    How Much Does Home Instead Charge for Home Care?

    Home care costs vary based on several factors, including the type of services required, how often one needs assistance, and the timing of the services (i.e., overnight vs. daytime care). Where you live also has a significant impact on the cost of home care, as national chains scale their local prices to the cost of living in a given area.

    When planning for home care costs, keep in mind that the national average cost is about $26 per hour, though prices in your location may be higher or lower. You can contact a Family Advisor to learn more about home care costs and payment options in your area.
