We were so fortunate to choose this company to take care of my Mom. Our caregiver was more than we could have ever asked for, had an instant bond with Mom, and became part of our family almost immediately. When Mom went on hospice unexpectedly, we asked our caregiver to stay on as well, not knowing how to do this alone. She was there through every moment, all the way up to her passing, and even afterward to support our family. She hugged us, cried with us, became our rock. We could not have done it without her and think she's our angel sent from above, the way she was with all of us, mostly Mom. The staff sent flowers, called, did above and beyond what any normal company would do. Everyone I talked to at the office was friendly, hard-working, and out to please us in whatever need we had, from changing scheduled times to advice and education about her deteriorating condition. Ever since, I've thrown their name out to anyone I know who's needing care for their family because five stars just doesn't even begin to cover it, how wonderful they are. Our caregiver still sends us Christmas cards, letters on Mom's birthday & Mother's day, and lets us know she's thinking of us and honoring Mom's memory. Can't say enough!

My mother has Alzheimer's and was very combative about the idea of having someone come into our house to be with her when I needed to be away. The people at Home Instead were very caring and when someone came out for the initial evaluation she did an excellent job of patiently spending time with my mother and allaying her fears. It is nice to have someone I can feel comfortable with in helping me put my mother at ease when I need to be away.
