"My Husband and I employ them for three hours per week to drive us out shopping. My Husband is 80 years old and has poor eye sight because of ‘Macular Degeneration’ and I am severely crippled with arthritis. Our helper does a really good job; assisting us in the grocery store, helping unload our groceries and putting them away in cupboards. She assists my husband in finding talking books at the library and escorted him to an appointment at an ophthalmologist office in Mississauga.... Barbara is a delightful companion."
"This year has been one of constant change for our family. Derek was admitted to hospital in January and is currently receiving care at St. Peter’s hospital in Hamilton. His prognosis is not good as he has a slow bleed in his colon which cannot be addressed due to his failing health. Our caregiver Suzanne has been a great help during this time. During the past two years she has provided consistency and excellent care for both of my parents. I have complete confidence in her and would not hesitate to request her return if our situation changes. Thank you for providing an excellent service for our family."
"For a ninety year old man, my father is very healthy both physically and mentally. What we wanted for him was some companionship. Dad was recently widowed and after sixty years together with my mom the thought of being all alone was terrifying. The care that Pia provides for dad is a friendly genuine person to have conversations with in the afternoon, someone to take walks with and share afternoon tea. For now though, in his words, ‘Pia has saved my life’."
"I could never have adjusted to life in the senior’s residence if it hadn’t been for the support and friendship provided by the staff from Home Instead’. The Home Instead staff was always, reliable, punctual, polite and above all we knew we could rely on them when we weren’t able to be there. In summary, we are forever grateful for the services provided to us by Home Instead and for their kindness over that period of time. We highly recommend Mr. Johnson and Home Instead."
"My brother, Terry and I would like to thank you for your kind support in caring for out mother Marcelle Mathews. Your wonderful team of caregivers notably the ‘2’Ann’s, Martha, Kay and finally Suzanne were always very patient, considerate and helpful. They all gave my mother back her dignity which is so easily lost when one can no longer care for oneself. And no doubt their companionship made her last days so much happier. If they weren’t tea drinkers before, I am sure they are now."
"Just to say a ‘big thank you’ to you and your company Home Instead for providing personal care and companionship for John. Your generous gesture enabled me to attend the care partner retreat at the Holiday Inn. I must admit that i was apprehensive initially as I have not left John with anyone before, so it was a testing experience for me. Shaleyne was absolutely splendid and John was entirely at ease with her. John said she was caring and thoughtful, enjoyed laughing together, and liked watching comedy on the TV. He enjoyed the trip to Oakville Place. I had a relaxing and wonderful time too! Thank you."
