We had Home Instead Senior Care for over a year. They all (office, caregivers, managers, etc) were always very friendly, helpful and compassionate. Some of the individuals almost became family. The office staff were efficient and always ready to help with a problem. Everyone was prompt and caring. Any situation I had they could handle and they made me feel comfortable leaving my spouse.

Lisa and Debbie (Green) were so wonderful to Ruth. They treated her like family, not just a client or “just their job.” These two women are true angels.

I want to thank the girls who came to be with my aunt, Betty, Jane, Kerrigan, during the time they spent with her. She told me several times that they were all nice to her. If we need to have your services again I will definitely call your office. Again, thank you!

In every instance we dealt with Home Instead, they were professional in their approach, yet caring and kind not only towards my father, but also towards my family There was an effort made to match my father with a care giver who would suit his needs and personality. We were pleased with the three caring and professional caregivers who took care of my Dad. We would highly recommend this agency. We could trust that they had our family ‘s best interest in mind.

All of the caregivers were very professional, kind, patient and very sensitive to the needs of the patient(my wife). Some even provided services beyond their assigned duties. I have and will continue to give Home Instead my highest recommendation to others.

We have daily service. It has allowed our family to become almost normal again. They definitely have helped with chores, ideas, conversation and taking much stress off of the caregiver. They have become part of our family. They are friendly, informative, compassionate, and always very helpful and sometimes bring some humor to an unpleasant situation. They share your thoughts and feelings and understand. The support is wonderful. They help with walking exercises, balance problems and taking him to appointments. Home Instead has always been very good with my requests for extra time and has been very supportive in any of our problems (including computer problems). They really care about their clients.

Congenial and unhesitating helpfulness. I prepared a list of tasks I would like helper to complete within time frame , if possible. I also prioritized tasks.All tasks were completed without my needing to give helper much guidance as to where things were or how to do things. Among the tasks helper completed within time frame (two hours) were change linens, put dishes in and run dishwasher, sweep terrace and stack patio chairs, get mail from outside mailbox, return items to department store, shop for groceries from supermarket, take trash to dumpster. Without reservation based on my own experience, I recommend this service.

Every Home Instead caregiver who came to help my father was hardworking, kind, patient and professional. Both the caregivers and office staff always made us feel that my dad's needs were the most important thing in the world to them, and they helped us through several emergencies.

My father is the prime caregiver for my mother who is in fourth stage dementia. The respite care offered through Nancy in my parents' home is absolutely wonderful! Not only does she uplift my mother and make her smile and laugh, Nancy brings a sense of peace to my father, to my sister, and to me. Her kindness, competence, patience, and loving personality are gifts to all of us! Everyone at Home Instead has been incredibly helpful and caring. Thank you!

I am thrilled with the care and services that my Grandmother is getting from Home Instead. My grandmother was admitted to the hospital on a Friday, late afternoon. I received a phone call to notify me of this and a follow up phone call to check on her on Sunday afternoon. WOW what commitment.. Thank you!.

The only reason we left Home Instead is because they increased their fees and their hour usage. We don't need a lot of hours with my father, but they were wonderful, and the caregivers were conscientious.

Home Instead has been taking care of my mom for the past few months and it has been amazing. My mother cannot stop talking about the two caregivers that generally spend time with her. Just the other day they made a batch of pumpkin cookies and it has literally been all that she has talked about. They are both so accommodating and really make her day. Her spirits have noticeably improved over the past month and a big part of that is due to the wonderful caregivers at Home Instead. The staff is also very pleasant, responsive, and easy to work with. I HIGHLY recommend these folks! Cheers.

Just a quick note to say thank you to all the wonderful caregivers my mom encountered along the way through HISC at Whitehall. Thank you for treating her like one of your own family members. A very special thanks to Sue S...I've never met a more loving, caring individual. If you could clone Sue, you'd be the wealthiest company! I can't say enough about her, as well as the others who looked out for mom. She is adjusting well in her new home, but I know she misses all of you, too! I value all that Home Instead Whitehall did to keep mom home as long as possible.

This branch of Home Instead has been helping my father for the past 4 years and we have absolutely loved the services! Our caregiver Dani is always aware of my father's needs. She is very loving, caring, and aware. She has honest concerns for his health and safety. Any family who can have someone like Dani to care for loved ones is very blessed. It is because of Dani and the senior care staff that I would feel comfortable endorsing the Whitehall Home Instead Senior Care to anyone looking for quality care. So happy with everything!!

I am a past client of this location. I had used a different location successfully for over 5 years. I had over 8 of their caregivers come thru my home. Most of them were capable people.My mother would get attached and the caregiver would leave. Home Instead was unable to retain them. It got to the point were the company said they could not support my requirements and suggested I find another company to support my Moms needs. I would not recommend this location.

Provider Response

Hello bizowner2,

Thank you so much for bringing this issue to our attention. I’m sorry your experience wasn't what you had hoped for. Our CAREGivers are carefully screened, fully bonded and go through our exclusive multi-phase training. I would be open to discuss this issue at any time, so feel free to contact me.

I'm very happy with Home Instead Senior Care as my in-home care provider. I've got a crew of caregivers who are doing a really good job, and I would not make a change.

I was looking for someone to assist my father, who is in early stages of Alzheimer's, so that he could stay independent and in his home for as long as possible. I live in Atlanta, while my father resides in Pennsylvania. My regular visits, for up to 6 weeks at a time, were having an impact on my ability to function at home with my own family. Even while I was with him, I found that I was unable to provide for all his needs, round the clock without feeling stressed and exhausted. I found Home Instead via an internet search and thought I would give them a try. Things started to improve for my father almost immediately. Dad loves his caregivers, who treat him like he was family. I used to laugh about how, as we returned from an errand, if the caregiver was at the house upon our arrival home, he would jump out of the car even before I got it parked, just so he could greet them! The main office keeps in continuous contact with me regarding his condition, carefully matching his caregivers to his personality and needs. This marvelous service has provided my father with companionship, guidance, and independence -- and me with peace of mind -- all, priceless. I will be forever grateful to this wonderful agency for their compassion, professionalism and commitment to serve.
