Home Care Reviews for Home Instead - Norwell, MA

Following a hospitalization, my 94-yr-old mother needed round-the-clock care at home. For more than 5 weeks, friendly, caring, knowledgeable, dedicated and dependable professionals came to our home. Each of them took excellent care of her, encouraging her as she regained her health and mobility, and allowing me to get the rest I so desperately needed. I learned from them the best ways to continue her care on my own, and I enjoyed their company immensely.They treated both of us with courtesy, respect, dignity and compassion.I can’t thank this company, its staff and management enough for taking such good care of us. With them, it really IS personal!!

I can't say enough about what a difference Home Instead, Jennifer, Director of the Norwell agency, and our care-giver have made in my life and I know eventually that of my husband as well. Home Instead's directors do everything possible to match clients with a care-giver as close as possible to its clients' needs and interests. Jennifer could not have made a better match for us. I so look forward to Wednesdays and having my wonderful care-giver at my front door.

We hired Home Instead to come on a daily basis for my elderly parents. My mom had trouble walking and couldn't perform her daily duties (cleaning, doing the wash, grocery shopping, etc.) and cook. My dad was on oxygen 24 hours a day and had memory loss. We basically had the same person come every day during the week (Mon. - Fri.). Over the 7 years we employed them there was only a few times that the weekly person changed hands. We were lucky with the consistency. They were all very nice, caring individuals who truly loved their job. They really came to know my parents well and their routines, etc. Almost better than us! They would also take them to local doctor's appointments if one of us wasn't able to do it. The only times we had a problem was usually with the weekend help. It wasn't that bad, but there was one time when a worker never showed up and never called in sick. This presented a problem since my parents needed 24 hour care the last few years. We even had them sleep over a few nights a week to help us out. They were accomodating when we asked for certain workers that we liked. I would highly recommend them as they were a huge help for us.
