I wouldn't use anyone else!!!! I want to share my experience with Home Instead Senior Care because I know what it feels like to be deeply concerned about who goes into your mother and father's home and how they are being treated (behind the scenes). I cannot overstate how kind, patient, upbeat, respectful and compassionate Ann (the Home Instead caregiver) is as she cares for my mother who suffers with dementia. She takes my mother for walks, engages her in activities, shares pleasant conversation, and even took her to have her hair done. While she doesn't remember her name, my mother does remember the kind lady who comes to visit her. I am deeply grateful Home Instead--thank you!

I want to congratulate Jeanne and her staff at Home Instead Senior Care in Charlottesville, Va. They were recently awarded the JD Power Award for Excellence and there are no doubts in my mind that they earned this recognition. My husband was diagnosed with a brain tumor and his condition rapidly declined. I found myself homebound caring for him until I found Home Instead. Jeanne herself conducted an interview at our home and helped determine our needs. The caregivers were wonderful! From preparing meals for Larry, reading to and with him, feeding my cat his lunch :-) and allowing me to get out for some much needed breathing room and grocery shopping, I gained some freedom back without worrying that my husband would be alone or need help. Toward the end of his battle with brain cancer he suffered a seizure at home while I was out for a short time. The caregiver immediately reached me on my cell, called 911 and followed the rescue squad to UVA Med Center in her car. She waited in the ER until I arrived all the while reassuring my husband that I was on my way and he was not alone.All my neighbors and friends know how highly I praise Home Instead and recommend them without hesitation.
