This comment is specific to Home Instead Senior Care of Wilmington, NC. My husband has ALZ. I have elected to keep him at home throughout his battle with ALZ. I was pressured by his doctors as well as our family/friends to seek a service for assistance. I am so pleased to have found HISC of Wilmington. I was immediately impressed by their knowledge of senior care, their integrity and genuine caring. This caring is evident by the care-giver assigned to us as well as by everyone we have met from HISC of Wilmington.. I understand that those at the top of HISC of Wilmington have a health care background. Their caring background is reflected by each of their associates. Should you, a family member or a friend require assistance, without hesitation, I strongly recommend HISC of Wilmington.

Our Home Instead care giver is providing excellent care for my mother who has dementia and is 86 years of age. Her attentiveness to details and the relationship she has developed with my mother is in no small way appreciated.

We have Home Instead Senior Care. They're excellent. They get along well with my father. They pretty much do whatever he needs them to do, e.g. drive them wherever he needs to go, cook him meals, and clean his house. They were the ones that fit for what we needed the best.

The aide that my mother has is very punctual, very attentive. My mother doesn't need too much care, mostly companionship. But she's there to help in any way. I see her every morning because I go in to my mom before I go to work. She does whatever my mom needs. And as of today, the nurse from Home Instead is paying my mom a visit to make sure that her medical needs are met and she's okay. I feel they're very organized and caring for their patients and all that.

We chose to have Home Instead for my dad because it was referred to us by a friend. They are very professional and it feels like that it's a good match for him. We did not wait for too long. I must say they are doing a very good job with taking care of my dad. So far I can say that it's a good experience.

I placed my mother at Home Instead Senior Care shortly after she was diagnosed with Alzheimers three years ago. While sadly, she died last year, I was blessed with the tremendous care and consideration Home Instead showed to her, me, and my family through the tough time. Overall, my experience with Home Instead was very positive. The staff were all very kind and generous, and would go out of their way to help my mother whenever she needed something the number of times I would go visit her. My mother always seemed very content with her living environments, and often times I would see one or more workers keeping her company and talking with her. They made sure that she was properly cared for, received her medications on time, and was receiving the attention she needed. I would wholeheartedly recommend Home Instead Senior Care to any of my friends or others seeking a good environment for their elderly loved ones.
