    The multiple caregivers over the years were always professional and well trained. Zahra was with my 100 year old mother for years and they developed a nice relationship. Zahra was a truly kind, compassionate companion for my mother.

    Home Instead of Norwood provided home care for my father. Gladys and Lonise were kind, compassionate, caring and treated my father with dignity while caring for him. They were always positive and always had a smile for him during this difficult time. My family is grateful for the help and support from Home Instead and would recommend them to anyone who is in need of this special kind of help.

    Can't say enough good things about Home Instead! My Mom had advanced Parkinson's and needed additional daily care beyond what her assisted living facility could provide. From Dawn and Liisa in the office who managed the scheduling and matched Mom to Care Professionals best suited for her needs, to the compassionate and caring Care Professionals, especially Katherine, Sherley, Amie, and Chantale, who made sure Mom was well cared for. Living so far away from Mom I felt at ease knowing she was in good hands.

    Home Instead has been invaluable over the past few months when my uncle had to move in with us unexpectedly. They were very responsive and jumped in to help us at short notice. Many of the care professionals who helped my uncle were amazing, very kind and patient with him. Special thanks to - Mackenson, Williamson, and Eloise! Anyone would be so lucky to have them caring for their loved ones. Also, Liisa and Dawn for all their help in coordinating our complicated schedules.

    Home Instead has been wonderful for our Mom. She is 98 and lives in her own home. The support on weekday mornings has been so helpful to her and to us. She has help when she needs it and it gets her day started on a positive note. Two of her caregivers, Kathy and Maureen are particularly attentive. She looks forward to seeing them. If she needs personal care they give it, and they are with her for breakfast and lunch. They truly care about her, that is clear. I also find that interactions with office and administrative staff is excellent. We are well-served by Home Instead.

    I was so impressed with Liisa and Brenda of Home Instead, Norwood, MA! They were extremely professional and did everything to meet our needs for our 98 year old father with dementia. The communication was fantastic during the process of finding healthcare workers to come to my parents’ home providing 24 hr. care. My dad was in rehab and both called us to find out the status of my dad’s releases date. Liisa and Brenda wanted to be sure the healthcare worker arrived at their place to help my father get out of the car into a wheelchair. We loved how they wanted to make sure the healthcare worker would be very kind And the perfect match for my mother’s support person. I first knew about Hime instead when I went grocery shopping at our local store. I noticed this Healthcare worker, Claudia, being so kind and attentive to a 90 year old man. I asked her where she was employed. She was so enthusiastic working for Home Instead. I cannot say enough about Home Instead.

    It is hard to find the words that can begin to express the appreciation we have for our dear caregiver, Shirley, from Home Instead. We have been working to provide 24-hour care for our dear 91-year-old mom in her home for some time. During this time, we have come to know many wonderful caregivers from Home Instead. With two experienced registered nurses and other health care professionals in the family actively engaged in my mom’s care, we feel uniquely qualified to speak to Shirley’s special traits. Shirley joined us more than a year ago and has become an important part of our family. Shirley immediately engaged with all of us, especially my mom, to understand our needs and preferences for care. Shirley had a lot of experience to offer and took initiative in my mom’s physical care as well as household tasks. She is very reliable, conscientious and efficient in performing any necessary tasks. What makes Shirley stand out is her innate sense of how to see and understand human beings. She has developed a special relationship with my mom. She has gained her confidence and trust in situations where my mom has been most fearful of falling or progressing her activities. Shirley is also quick to offer her suggestions about what might be helpful in care. We do not know what we would do without her!

    Melissa and Rose Annie provide daytime support of my 75 year old sister who lived in our parents’ home. They both provide personal care, laundry services, help with dressing, kitchen organization. However their level of social support and attention has by far been of enormous help in brightening each day that they are with our sister. Having very limited mobility, she is restricted to primarily the home. They brighten each day for our sister as they provide the routine care expected. Both Melissa and Rose. Annie have been reliable, stable and on -time each day - each week. There were some care-providers initially who did not continue to work with our sister and apparently left the agency. Home Instead apologized for their inability to sustain a commitment to serve in this role and for the missing days that occurred. However within a very short time a new care-provider was identified by Home Instead and a new relationship commenced.

    My mother has been a client of Home Instead for a few years now. The agency does a great job communicating with me and assigning quality caregivers to my mother. Her homemaker now, Alison, has developed a caring relation with my mother and she looks forward to her visits. She is puntual and reliable. Having a responsible and dedicated caregiver for my mother is a huge relief to my sisters and I...and of course, to my mom.

    We absolutely love Home Instead! Our care giver, Antoinette, goes above and beyond to make sure our mother is so well taken care of! Antoinette's attention to detail is unsurpassed. The team at Home Instead is wonderful, too, always there to support us when we need extra help on weekends, after hospital visits, etc. They are heaven sent!

    Home Instead is our guardian angel on earth. We needed to utilize their services during a very difficult time in our mother's life and they were a game changer. Their compassion and attention to detail is something that can't be taught or coached. These were unchartered waters for us and they helped us every step of the way. They seemed to know what we needed and were always helpful with suggestions that would benefit our mom the most. I can't say enough about Brenda in the office - she made us feel at ease and had a gentle approach to handling all of our needs. Her devotion to her job and those she's responsible for is remarkable. She was extremely easy to work with and always met and exceeded our needs. Especially ensuring that she placed the right caregivers to assist our mom. She's someone you'd want as a close friend and her loyalty to her profession and clients is praiseworthy. Shirley was one of our primary caregivers and she is everything that Brenda is - caring, loyal, gentle and experienced. She had an approach with our mom that was soothing and trustworthy. We will forever be indebted to them and Home Instead for helping us during a very difficult transition. My family and I were at peace knowing mom was well cared for. We are eternally grateful.
