Home Care Reviews for Home Instead - Gorham, ME

I interviewed this provider

Home Instead has helped our mother adjust to life after my father. As a family, we had many false starts trying to decide where my mother should live, with whom, or maybe alone with care ??! Home Instead patiently adjusted their schedule time and time again until we got it right. And then they provided us with the perfect people to take care of my mom. Both women are very good technically, but more important is the way my Mom instantly enjoyed their company.

Home Instead are good, and they are caring. It has been very good so far. They are helping me around the house with chores and things like that.

I have been a client with Home Instead for 4 plus years. It has been a true God-send. I want to stay in my own home for as long as possible and my caregivers are making this dream extend further and further. Their compassion, hard work and always smiles are such a gift.

The ladies who have come to my home are the nicest, kindest and the most helpful "friends" that I have ever had. I call them all my "Earth Angels". I could not have lived this long without their help and spirit.

5 STARS I have contracted with the local Home Instead for ~5 years during which I have had two home care employees come to my home once a week to do laundry pickup/drop-off, food shopping, cleaning and general assistance for the cleaning and care of my apartment. Both providers [the first left when her child was to be born] were/are conscientious, honest, enthusiastic, pro-active and resourceful, and pleasant young women. The administration is courteous, professional, and caring, as well as efficient and helpful in all matters including replacing my first care giver, assisting with the forwarding of shopping lists, and contacts between the care giver and me. The best way to describe the agency's operations is efficient, courteous, professional and timely. Good people and much appreciated. I COULD NOT GET THE STAR TO STAY PINK AS THE SELECTION: IT IS A 5 STARS ORGANIZATION.
