    We have worked with Home Instead for both parents. Every single person who has worked with our family is outstanding - Caring, compassionate and knowledgeable. We couldn't have coped with our parents' illnesses without their help and support. The care givers provided basic home services, daily hygiene services as well as transportation and assistance with hospice care. They took a lot of stress off our family and we can't thank them enough.

    I had a Home Instead consultation with Tricia for my mom and step-father in Ocean City Maryland. Tricia was not only very understanding and empathetic, but very knowledgeable about insurance and other options for care. She answered my call on a Friday morning and was able to come by the house that day. We expect to use this service and hope the caregivers are as professional and understanding as Tricia.

    Corrie was very receptive to feedback on our initial caregiver and quickly worked to find a suitable replacement who has addressed our needs.

    We were able to use the services of Home Instead Senior Care for seven days for my husband. My husband was very comfortable with the caregivers. They helped feed him, turn him in for bed, and clean him up. They were able to accommodate my need for the short period I had them as I had a special occasion that required someone staying longer than normal. I ended up having one lady for 10 hours one day. She had been forewarned that it might be happening. They were very kind and caring. In fact, I have recommended them to others.

    Home Instead came once. The lady they sent did not jive with my husband at all; it was not a good mix.

    We are pleased with our home aide. She is efficient, knowledgeable and has a sense of humor. She is very good with us and communicative. Home Instead is very nice to deal with and very responsive. It is a very efficient and compassionate group of people who are very responsive to the individual needs of a family.

    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.

    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.

    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).

    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.
