I am a current client of this provider

As a long-distance caregiver for a parent with Alzheimer's, who has since passed, and the other parent who needs daily assistance, I can't, and don't want to imagine, life without the daily support of a Home Instead companion/caregiver. Finding the right caregiver isn't always easy, but the Home Instead staff did a great job. The present caregiver has been helping our loved one for more than four years. This includes driving to/from appointments, shopping, and helping at home. When we've needed to extend the hours, Home Instead has accommodated. We feel so blessed to have her, and the Home Instead team on our side.

My mom was in need of immediate care due to a short term health issue. I called Home Instead in Chelmsford and Donna was very responsive to my request even though it was very short notice. What started as a short term care turned into more frequent home visits by Home Instead. All the Aids were very caring and attentive to my Mom's needs, whether it was cleaning the house or making meals for my mom, they always took care of her. They also brought my mom to many different appointments ranging from medical to beauty salon where they made sure my mom received the service she was there for. I would highly recommend Home Instead in Chelmsford.

I was skeptical about strangers coming in to care for my mother, but Terry, Donna, and Claire (in the office) were very easy to do business with. My mother’s caregivers (Farouk and Sophia) were extremely caring, compassionate with my mother, and our whole family. I would recommend anyone to contact this office for help with home health care!
