Annie D., the primary caregiver that Winchester Home Instead selected for Mom is fabulous...and a perfect match! Not only is Mom safer with the added layer of guidance and supervision, she is also happier. She looks forward to visits from "her Annie" and genuinely enjoys Annie's companionship. I could not be more pleased with the services from Home Instead. From my first call to Home Instead, I felt very confident about the help that Mom would be receiving. Every staffer at every level of the Winchester office has been a delight to coordinate Mom's care with, and the peace of mind provided is priceless. I am a very experienced Registered Nurse so I have rather high standards for patient care. Home Instead came highly recommended to me from my many peers in the Winchester medical community, and has consistently exceeded my expectations. I am very appreciative of their support, and hope to be able to keep Mom in the comfort of her own home - as she so dearly wishes - for the rest of her life.

Everyone has been so pleasant and helpful and professional. I love having this service available for my ailing husband. I can go get a haircut or groceries and know he is safe while I am gone

You have flexibility to accommodate our needs whenever they change. We have been blessed with basically one caregiver and we love her. Patty C. is dependable, flexible, and congenial.

I found Home Instead to very helpful when I needed someone to sit with my Mom who has Alzheimer's. I used Home Instead several times and had a few caregivers. All the caregivers were very kind and took good care of my Mom, playing games and reading to her. After a "visit" with the Home Instead caregiver, I found no ill effects with my Mom, so i knew that she was well taken care of while I was gone. Thank you so much for the peace of mind you gave me while Mom was in your care.

This is an amazing organization! I don't know what my mother would have done without them. The level of help they provide physically and emotionally are second to none. Each of my mother's caretakers became not only a worker but a true friend and member of our family. Having Home Instead helping my elderly mother was truly heaven sent. Each employee is a gift to your firm.

My mother was a client for over two years and the level of care was not consistent. There were many caregivers during that time and most did not seem to be trained or experienced in dementia care. The office staff was disorganized and there was a lack of communication. For example - sending the caregiver to our house after my father's funeral but never informing her of his death. She asked my mother where he was when she saw he wasn't home. There were many incidents I complained about - including a caregiver leaving my mother alone in the house while she sat in the car and smoked. And a caregiver who left her own prescription medicine on our kitchen counter. Addition to review I posted (7/9/15): I posted a review in June and would like to update. The owner of Home Instead responded to my concerns through email and a personal phone call. Although my rating has not changed since it is based on actual experiences, I am impressed with his proactive approach and professional response to my criticism.

Home Instead Senior Care is one of the largest companies, and it's the only available in our area. They are kinder and more compassionate. They take care OF my mother, who is 93 years old and has pneumonia. My main concern is for them to take care of my mom while I'm away.

We're fairly satisfied with Home Instead. They were responsive and they got a caregiver for my mother pretty quickly. Basically, they help her with bathing, dressing up, light housekeeping, and companionship. And so far so good.
