Home Instead provides trained and confident home health aides (HHAs) who know how to work with a client in ways that support the client without intruding on the client's ability to do things for him-/herself. The HHAs arrive on time and always come with a cheerful attitude. Frequently they come with a story about something they've seen or heard that reminded them of us while they were away from us. This enables them to "connect" with us and makes us feel that we aren't just "clients" to them, but are rather like friends. That relationship enables them to blend into our family routine easily and smoothly, thus providing very effective support for our needs in ways that fit our family's pace and style of living. This is a skill that requires training and a genuine enjoyment of serving others. Home Instead has done an excellent job of matching our family with the right HHAs for us. The HHAs help with housework and meals in ways that fit our lifestyle. They do not impose their own ideas or preferences on us, but follow our way of doing things. As they and we have become more familiar with each other, it has become more common for the HHA to make suggestions that could make housework and meals more effective and efficient, and we often adopt what they suggest. If we choose not to do so, the HHA is perfectly at ease with that decision. Our relationship is become more like a friendship, with out losing the professional aspects which make it so helpful to us. Home Instead is enabling us to continue life with serious illness in a much more relaxed and productive way that we were able to do before engaging their assistance.

We have nothing but wonderful things to say about the caregivers and office staff at Home Instead Andover. They were a godsend to help care for my Mother. Our caregiver loved my Mom and my Mom loved her too. Thank you for the wonderful job. Keep it up.
