We Hired Home Instead senor care to take care of my father while My sister went away for Business. The interview process was so easy , convenient , and friendly. The communication was outstanding and the care for my father was exactly what I wanted and he deserved. My father does not like Anyone, especially when it comes to assisting him. He absolutely raved about his care and loved talking about Katina like she was one of the family. We are definitely hiring them and Katina again when my sister has to go away in April. Thank you to Home Instead senior care

My stepfather is in his 70s. Ill be polite and not give away his age. Two years ago he was diagnosed with liver cancer. As we all know that form of cancer has nowhere to go but_ up. Thats right to the brain. This last month (June) the lesions in his brain had been causing dementia and paranoia. It was beginning to take its toll on my mother and I. So we contacted Home Instead Senior Care. I use to be skeptical but we had recently a few years earlier used another form of assisted living organization for another family member. Sitting down with these people help you sift through the bad press that nurses aids or senior homes may have. It was important we did not put my stepfather into an actual home. Hes dying but I want him to pass on at home. They send a nurse aid whenever we need her. My mother and I can go on with our own responsibilities now. The nurse sits with him, shops for us when we cant, prepares his meals and even helps him with his bathroom trips and walks outside. It really is a Godsend, truly is. And everyone who works for this office of this company seem to have their own personal experiences of what were dealing with. That makes for a great rapport with the nurses who do come out.
