Home Care Reviews for Home Instead - Sherman, TX

Home Instead provides 24/7 care for my sister who has Stage IV liver cancer. The care givers, cook, clean up, watch her like a hawk, but not too close, do laundry and fold it and put it away. They are up in a second when she starts with her walker and give her privacy in the bathroom, but are never more than a step away. She is helped to shower and dress if needed. The women are all good cooks and funny and smart and all around great people. Everyone has been on time which is difficult since she lives more than 30 miles from Sherman. I have no complaints about any of the care givers or Home Instead. It has done an excellent job in finding the right people for her home.

Home Instead Senior Care has not only enhanced the life of my loved one they have extended her life. She would have most certainly had to move to a facility without the attentive care of Home Instead and the excellent group of caregivers that take care of her. They are always looking for ways to better serve our family and in contact with us anytime there is anything we need to know. It doesn't get better than Home Instead Senior Care in Sherman, TX.

When I made my initial inquiry I was treated with kindness and respect. All of my questions were thoroughly and patiently answered. If I need a schedule adjustment I'm accommodated immediately.

We used Home Instead on a weekly basis to give me some time off after being a sole caretaker for a few years. The home health aide was very attentive and pleasant to my husband. She was always on time, and the home office made sure we had the help we needed when she had a day off. Billing and payment was simplified for us. We were able to call and have our questions answered. Overall they seemed to try to make this as easy as possible for us. We only stopped using them when my husband went into a nursing facility. I would definitely recommend them.

Suzie has been a true blessing for us. My mom is in her mid-80s, living in a very convenient senior citizen apartment. She is independent and just as sharp as ever. Hoewver, she has serious mobility issues that keep her from being able to clean the apartment, make meals, do her laundry, change the sheets on her bed, bathe herself, and get in the car to run errands like going to the pharmacy or grocery store. Vicki and the other care providers have been able to help my mom with all of these things. For the longest time (a couple years), my mom resisting having "Home Instead" helpers come to the house. She needed these services for at least 2 years, but she wouldn't consider having someone in her home. I'm not sure what she was afraid of, but after just one visit from Suzie, my mom was hooked. She saw how helpful Suzie was, from the very first day, and she is so happy to know she can rely on Home Instead. In addition, the Home Instead office staff have been great about keeping me informed about how my mom is doing. Thank you so much.

I have been using Home Instead - Sherman, Texas for about 3 years for my wife who has Parkinson's Disease. This has been an excellent organization in meeting the needs we have experienced.
