Home Instead Senior Care lives up to its motto- “To us it’s personal”., experience, my dad and I has been a great one. From the interview process to the caregivers, it has been professional and caring. I receive personalized care for my father that includes but is not limited to bathing, meal preparation, laundry and light house keeping. The company continues to follow up with the progress and expectations of our needs and their caregivers. They genuinely care about their clients. The open communication creates an inclusive environment. The staff is friendly & knowledgeable and has always arrived on time. They have always kept me informed of any concerns or progress of the day. They have been excellent at working with our needs and flexible hours. I would recommend Home Instead Senior Care to care for your loved one.

Home Instead provides an invaluable service to my Mother and family. My Mother is an amazing woman, very independent, and 102. At 102 she continues to enjoy being in her home and gardening. Thanks to the excellent staff at Home Instead she is able to continue this lifestyle. Her caregivers help her with errands, housekeeping, cooking, bathing, and other needs that arise. One caregiver, Lisa, has been with us a long time and is like family. Her case manager and nurse check with me on a regular basis and pay visits to my mother. I know if any special problems arise concerning Mother’s care that Home Instead is always available to help. Not only is all of this a great help to Mother, but it also allows my sister and me the time to care for our families. I highly recommend Home Instead and their highly qualified staff to those in need of a caregiver.

When I called about a concern that had occurred over the last several months, my concerns were taken seriously. Home Instead has been very helpful when needing extra care givers, schedule changes etc. Thanks

I have used Home Instead for several years and have been extemely happy with their service and support. We have had several caregivers and they have all been wonderful. They have made sure someone was with my mother, shopped for food, drove to doctor appointment and kept me updated. I highly recommend them.

We used Home Instead as transition care for our mother, We found them to be helpful from the beginning of getting information about their services. The caregiver that was assigned to us has been pleasant and willing to assist in any way. Should we need care for our mother again we would automatically call Home Instead. Thank you Annie for being kind to our mother.. Karen

As soon as I called Home Instead... and I was desperately needing immediate assistance for my mother, the phone calls began! Even the owner, Les called offering details and we immediately had someone to be with my mother! I am very fond of and familiar with Home Instead as I work in the medical field, but this was the first time I needed them for personal reasons. Words are not enough to describe the love, care, and attention given to my mother during her final weeks. Not only did her caregivers provide such loving attention, but they also prayed with her...I could never have imagined how a complete stranger could provide such love especially in those final days. Home Instead only hires the best of the best and I know from experience their training and expectations of their staff are exceptional!

My Dad's caregiver was excellent. He had Alzheimers & he connected with her immediately. She was very loving and kind to him. She made suggestions of activities for him to do such as puzzles and coloring. It was a joy to me to see him interact with her so lovingly.

Yes, 5 stars... 10 is more appropriate... The care that was given to my mother, at 93, was straight from Heaven... I'm her only child, but a son can only do so much when caring for his mother... I reached out to, "Home Instead", they took my burden, eased my mind, and took care of my mom... and that's all that mattered to me... But the one thing that struck me; the one thing that stuck out, aside from their kindness, is that, "Home Instead" knows, that every time their phone rings, it's someone who needs help... Like me. Thank you, Home Instead... I'll definitely need your help again.

Home Instead allowed my 87 year old mother to live independently in her apartment until her passing. The staff and care givers were amazing. They truly became best friends with my mom. As the daughter, I had such a level of comfort that someone was checking on mom and providing a quality lifestyle. As we all age it is important that we feel loved and cared for. Thanks to Home Instead they provided such to my mom.

Home Instead Senior Care provided excellence service to my father. They were compassionate and caring. We had very little time to set-up care (during a holiday weekend) but they came through with excellent caregivers. My dad's number one priority was to be at his home and Home Instead provided us that option. Not only did the caregivers provide excellence care to my dad but they also were very attentive to me. It was an emotional time and they became like family. I highly recommend Home Instead. They came highly recommended to me by a nurse at a local hospital.

The staff in charge of scheduling went above and beyond to try and find caregivers that matched with our mother's needs and personality. They found people to be with her on short notice when we saw that her days were numbered. The caregivers were compassionate and so very attentive to Mom and were so welcoming when her friends came in to visit at her assisted living facility. They didn't leave her side and we were so at ease with the quality of their care. My family and I feel confident in recommending the Home Instead staff in every way.

Home Instead provides excellent service! We were hesitant picking out home care for our mom and we definitely made the right decision when we chose Home Instead. There hasn't been a turnover in personnel, they are VERY responsive to emails and calls and any requests asked are handled. Communication and care is top notch!

My mother has had caregivers from Home Instead for over 5 years. Initially my mother was resistant to having someone come in to her home. She went through ALL Home Instead's caregivers until one simply told her she had traveled 45 minutes to get there and she was not leaving. We had Delores until she retired. We then had Jennifer who was with my mother 6 days a week until she went into Memory Care. I have been very pleased with Home Instead. They are willing to do whatever it takes to make this journey easier.

I have been a client of Home Instead for 12 years. I look forward to my "Monday" visit with my care giver - Tanya :-). I live my daughter who works full time, so this gives her a break from some of her responsibilities. Tanya helps me with my laundry and preparing my lunch and dinner. It also gives me some "One on One" time with a "Friend". We talk about our families and what is going on among us. We've been there for the good times, and the bad :-(. I don't like changes because I have a hard time remembering new things - after all, I am getting older, not younger. Tanya is my 4th care giver - not because I chase them away - but because they have either retired or left Home Instead. In addition to our weekly routine, we also share in the Holidays - Just yesterday (12/19/16)., we made Christmas Cookies together!!! We had fun!!!! Tanya has been with me 3 years, and I hope there will be many more!!!!! It is my sincere hope that Tanya is recognized for her loyalty and caring way. Kind Regards, Eleanor Paige

My Mom always said she wanted to stay in her own home for as long as she was able to do so. Home Instead has made this possible for her and I will be forever grateful for the exceptional care she has received. Thank you!

Everything is done with professionalism, yet at the same time, the people are warm and caring. All appointments are kept on time, and usually our caregiver is several minutes early. My husband is comfortable with our caregiver.

We’ve had Home Instead for about 3 months now. They come in and are supposed to do some light housework, but many of them don’t. They’re supposed to help prepare light meals; many of them don’t, so my mother’s doing the cooking. They have taken her to some appointments. It’s been nice, and I’m very appreciative of everything they do for her, but she doesn’t like them; she doesn’t like anybody. She likes some of them better than others. The ones that she doesn’t have to direct them to do specific things she likes better. But when they come in, sit down, and do nothing, I’m not happy with them for doing that. Billing is expensive, but it’s fine. They’re very considerate and prompt in letting you know when they’re sending new personnel, and they try to come out and introduce them themselves or at least a supervisor will sometimes come out to introduce them. They could improve on checking to see what we’ve asked them to do because some do it and many don’t like the light cooking.

I have found someone from Home Instead Senior Care. Their service is great. It is for my father-in-law. They have been very responsive. I got a phone call within 24 hours of my first inquiry. It was a very quick turnaround between when we had our first appointment to find out about their services. Once we've decided that we wanted to start their services, they had engaged their caregiver within three days. There was no long wait at all. Also, they have been responsive in terms of checking in.

You have made such a difference to our Father. He has a better attitude about Life. He looks forward to Jim, his care provider coming in. We couldn't ask for any more. Everyone at the office has been very helpful also. Keep up the great work. We all love your company.

We couldn't have gotten through this past year without the help of this company especially Diane R.N. and Jodette. My husband had a hip replacement, suffered complications and had three major surgeries. We had two deaths in our family, grandson and son-in-law. I fell several times during all this. We really relied on Jodette from Home Instead. We are doing well now but have kept Jodette part time. We can't do without her.

After my mother passed away several years ago, I was left with the responsibility of caring for my father who has Alzheimer's. I was able to move him to Charlotte into independent living in a continuing care community, but found his needs where too substantial for me to meet on my own. I was fortunate to learn about Home Instead. Home Instead has provided my Dad with a wonderful caretaker who is able to take him shopping, out for a bite to eat, to church and to doctor appointments when I am not available to do so. Home Instead has given him back his independence and dignity; He need not rely on his daughter to take him everywhere he wants to go. I have absolute confidence that my dad is in good hands and well cared for on his outings. I also greatly appreciate the support and advice Home Instead has provided to our family. Having an aging parent is a difficult process, and Home Instead's care manager has provided our family with a lot of good educational information and advice. I would highly recommend Home Instead for anyone facing the challenges of caring for an aging parent.

The diagnosis for my husband, who once was a very intelligent man, was Alzheimer's Disease! After the initial shock I drew strength in facing whatever lies ahead knowing that God never gives us more than we can handle. I asked for courage, patience and wisdom to be the best ever caregiver for this man who is my life. Not only has He answered my prayers, He led me to Home Instead and a remarkable, compassionate care giver named Bill S. My husband's life has flourished in Bill's care and enabled me to be a better care giver. Home Instead is a premier senior care organization who is very selective about the caliber of person they bring into their business. In addition, Home Instead care givers must undergo periodic training sessions so that they have the most updated skills to provide to their clients. The entire staff at Home Instead is supportive and extremely caring. My husband continues to be the same loving, caring, witty man I married almost 66 years ago. We laugh a lot. Thanks to Home Instead.

Our Dad has been living in an assisted living facility for several years. It has always been a challenge for we three siblings as our residences are in New England and Dad is in Charlotte, NC. He enjoys getting out and about when we visit him, but that is not as often as we would like. I became familiar with Home Instead when a friend told her story of hiring a caregiver for her mother. So my brothers and I decided to give it a try. We are so thankful we made that connection. My Dad's caregiver, Janis, has been an absolute God sent. She thinks of the most creative places to take our Dad and engages him in constant conversation to keep his mind sharp. We are amazed at how well she has gotten to know him in terms of what areas of knowledge he still excels in as well as what activities he enjoys participating in. Of course she also knows where he loves to stop and get ice cream cones! Recently our step mother was hospitalized and Dad was having a particularly difficult time as he could no longer be with her. We asked Janis if she would increase her visits, including Sundays, to take Dad to the hospital, and then rehabilitation location, to visit his wife. Janis made time in her busy schedule to do so. Her phone calls assuring us that Dad was doing okay were so appreciated. We are deeply appreciative and thankful for the level of care and commitment Janis has shown our Dad as well as our family. We consider ourselves to be extremely fortunate to have had met and hired Janis.

When my Dad had his hip replaced and we got him home, we thought caring for him would be easy enough, with 2 daughters as RN's and another living around the corner. Well, we were wrong! We all did the best we could but Dad really needed more. My sister Mary recommended Home Instead because they had cared for her Mother-in-law for years, and did a wonderful job- like family. From the first phone call to Home Instead, my fears of what would happen to my Dad, were put to rest. My Dad's (and subsequently my Mom's too) caregiver, Jodette, has become one of the family as well! She is so caring, energetic, and conscientious; My parents love her, as do I because I know they are being looked after and helped with so many things. Otherwise they might not be able to stay in their home. My sisters and I are very thankful for this wonderful group of caring people dedicated to the care and well-being of our older generation. Highly recommend!!!

Everyone involved in the care of my father in law after his hospital stay has been great! Lacie lined up companions for Dad & followed up with us, Brenda the Companion was AWESOME to his needs throughout the night, and Lindsey from the office also checked on us. They even sent Dad a card and it's up in his little apt.!
