We are currently a client and have been very thankful and pleased with our services. Everyone has been easy to reach and accomodating as we are in and out of the hospital lately with my grandmother and our caregiver is meeting us where we are. We are glad we chose Home Instead and the care we are getting.

I wish I would have chosen Home Instead years ago! My father suffers from Alzheimer's disease and has declined tremendously over the past two years. Recently after a bout of pancreatitis my family made the difficult decision to consider long term care. We quickly realized that the cost of long-term care would quickly liquidate any assets my dad had worked hard to save for his entire life. Instead we looked into couple's care for my mom and dad which has allowed them to stay in their home and be independent while still having their basic needs taken care of in a more humane and caring way. They absolutely love their caregiver and look forward to her care and company. I am happy to say that just with care and attention my dad's overall health and mobility have greatly improved. In addition, the company itself is responsive and accommodating to all our needs. There have been times when we've needed more care and it is quickly scheduled and someone is always there to answer my questions. I will be forever grateful for Home Instead for allowing my parents to grow old gracefully! Thanks, Home Instead!

My mother recently passed and the caregivers of Home Instead were with here until the end with attentive, compassionate home care. She was a once a week client for bathing assistance and laundry until the final 2 weeks when she required 24 hour attention. Home Instead's Loreen Packer responded to my request for help within 24 hrs and was prepared to staff Mom's needs 48 hours later. As a daughter who lived 1700 miles away, I could not have asked for better end of life care for my mother.

When our healthy, independent developed a brain bleed our family was in shock. My husband is a RN and had heard good feedback from patients with home instead in Conroe. We knew our father would want to be home and the only way that would happen is 24 hour care. He developed friendships with these incredible ladies and they did anything asked of them. Now that he is living independently again he says he misses the care. We were so appreciative of the care and professionalism. Loreen is a great communicator.

My mother's caregiver was not only of great help to my mom, but a help to me. She took my mom out and did he laundry so that my time with her wasn't spent doing laundry and running errands. My mom enjoyed the companionship and her caregiver was very kind, conscientious and dependable. The office staff was helpful and communicative.

I really like our care provider. She takes great care of my mother and is very nice. My mother looks forward to seeing her. She bathes her, cleans her room and bathroom, keeps her bed linens clean and launders her clothes. She does an excellent job!

You were able to match a caregiver to my mother's needs and personality.

This company is excellent and has been great to work with. They listen to customer feedback and make sure all issues are taken care of. They do try to find a good caregiver who will fit well with the patient/person they are taking care of. We have an excellent aid who goes out of there way to make sure everything is taken care of and there is nothing overlooked! I would highly recommend this company to anyone needing assistance with a loved one.

Home Instead is really good about providing the support that we need and I've been using them pretty much since my mom first had her stroke. They make sure that they get people here on time and they are pretty good at mitigating any issues or concerns. They have a pretty decent quality of nursing and the caregivers that we've been engaged with have been compassionate, understanding, and patient. One of them in particular, Cindy, would even do some activities with my mom, which she did all on her own. Those little things make a big difference. They make sure to match the caregiver with the patient. It's kind of what I find best. Their desire to make sure that they have the right caregiver there is why I go back to them. They are a bit pricey, but you get what you pay for.

My wife and I are very fortunate we found some people from Home Instead Senior Care. She's very cordial. She's a very good cook, and she keeps on doing extra things for us.
