Home Care Reviews for Home Instead Senior Care - Norfolk, NE

Home Instead Senior Care cared for my mother for over six years until her passing in May of 2013. Her care began with a few hours a week of house work and companionship and advanced as needed until she was receiving 24 hour care. Towards the end this included personal care while she was in hospice. The team that cared for her was incredible! This includes both those who were with her and those who worked behind the scenes insuring that there was always some one there - and not just anyone - but the right person for what my mom wanted and needed. No matter the issue, Home Instead patiently worked with us to ensure that her needs were met and that she was happy with her caregivers. Her care givers always conducted themselves professionally, but were so caring and so often went above and beyond the job requirements that they became more like friends and family. I will forever be grateful for the wonderful job they did for us which allowed my mother to achieve what was so very important to her - that she remain in her own home and live with dignity throughout her days. I strongly recommend their service.
