Home Care Reviews for Home Instead - Pittsfield, MA

September 19, 2018

By kathyq


We receive Companion Services one time a week for my Mother who has Dementia. She absolutely LOVES her Caregiver who takes her out for some "girl time" (her words). She has had one Caregiver,week after week,year after year, which provides her with stability and continuity of care. This gives me one day of respite,which is needed when caring for a loved one at home. I have peace of mind knowing that she is safe,in good hands,and having a great time. Home Instead has been wonderful with their communication to me,and has gone above and beyond meeting all of my expectations. I highly recommend their services.

Home Instead provides a smooth transition from institutional care to home. The caregivers are compassionate, organized and trustworthy. I can return to work now that caregivers are taking care of Mom.

Every caregiver that we have had has been very understanding, friendly, and has worked with us on our mother's unique needs. The organization has bent over backwards to make sure we had care even in the worst weather of the winter. I would highly recommend them.
