We have some people doing home health care now for my mother from Home instead Senior Care. The main thing that makes us decide to hire them is that they are already serving others in the apartment building where my parents live. They are trying very hard to meet our personal requests. Their work ethics are very good. I think the management is responsive to our scheduling requests, and their billing is clear.

We were able to hire Home Instead. Unfortunately, it turned out to be short-term because my father-in-law passed away three weeks ago. They were very professional, and we were very happy with their care although we only had service twice. Like I said, they were very professional, on time, worked very hard, and very pleasant to work with. I had no complaints, but we really barely got started when he had to go to the hospital.

Home Instead Senior Care- New Bern provided excellent care to my father. He was living over 500 miles away from his nearest family and gradually deteriorating. They first became involved when we saw that he needed help. At that time he insisted he didn't need assistance, but all the paperwork was done and it was set up for when he was ready. I think that was important because when his needs became greater beginning service from Home Instead was very easy. As my father declined, the services from Home Instead Senior Care- New Bern increased. This included trips to the doctor, physical therapy, the grocery store, the barber, etc, and unfortunately to the hospital. During several hospital stays, Home Instead was invaluable both when family was not right there and after they came to town. Eventually my father agreed it was time to move closer to family and now lives near three of his children. I also must mention the quality of the relationships my father had with the staff of Home Instead. Every person connected with Home Instead treated my father with respect and as a friend. This treatment started at the top with the owners of Home Instead-New Bern and was demonstrated by every single person who worked for them. They are a wonderful and caring group of people.

Over the past two years, I have used four different home care companies. J.D. B. of Home Instead and his staff are clearly the best-managed and qualified company. As the owner, J. D. B. is very customer focused and involved in ensuring that his customers' needs are met. These same qualities are also displayed by all staff who have always met my needs and expectations.

Exceptional, professional, caring and thorough. Their care of my 87 year-old father was more than anyone could ask for. From dealing with household issues to oversight of his doctor's appointments, meals, cleaning, and great companionship they rose to every occasion and kept our family informed. You could not make a better choice.

These are people who really care about their clients. They are the ultimate in professionalism and competence. We had no relatives in the town where our father lives, so it was critical to have an agency we could depend on. The Home Instead staff were exceptional and cared for him while providing friendship and security. They were always kind and respectful, allowing him to maintain his dignity. They are truly a special group.

I like my aide (caregiver) because she shows high respect to me and my home. If I would have a choice, I would want her to be in service with me again.

The caregivers did care and took pride in trying to help my wife recover. They were competent in every respect. Office staff were always responsible to my wife's changing needs and schedule of service. I thank them.

The caregivers are neat, clean, and professional in appearance. They are attentive, helpful, and willing to do activities in many areas. They are also pleasant even on "trying" days. I've heart the term "care-partners" recently and I think that's a good term. The office phone is answered promptly and pleasantly and adjust to altered hours due to doctor appointments. We're happy we chose Home Instead. Lee and JD are at the top of their service, kind, interested, flexible, and just "good people"!
