Home Instead caregivers were a literal lifeline in the care of my
parents in the last 5 years of their lives. My sister and I live far
from Saskatoon (in New York City and Vancouver) with jobs that made it
difficult to spend extended time with our parents. We first engaged them
in the months before our father entered long-term care as a help and
support for our mother as his life at home became more and more
difficult. This continued through his move to the nursing home and then
through our mother's move from their apartment to her own care home.
During this time Home Instead caregivers provided help not only with
household chores, shopping, transportation and the like but were an
immense support to my parents in terms of nurturing and companionship.
"All the staff I’ve had contact with make both my “senior” and myself feel like we’re special and very important to them. My “senior” enjoys her visits and outings and often comments on how kind her “girls” are and how interested they are in everything she has to say. I really appreciate the respect and kindness shown to her. All administrative information is very clear. Electronic billing system is very convenient. "
"Our relative enjoys the bi-weekly visits. They know they don't have to rely on friends or relatives to do errands, get to appointments or get groceries. They can plan around some days when they know Home Instead is coming. We have even had help with getting to and from the airport for Christmas visits! Now, when family is in town, we can have more quality time, go out for a meal or share an experience, without having to cram in a bunch of other things. Our visits, and our relative are much more relaxed and happy. Thank you for the great work you are doing!"
"GLAD OF HELP GOING OUT TO APPOINTMENTS AND SHOPPING AND HOUSEWORK."
"The caregivers were chosen to be compatible with my Mom and sister and they are a perfect match. The caregivers provide companionship as well as household help such as laundry meals and tidying and pet care. The pet care has been very important to my Mother who was afraid she might have to give up her cat and dog because caring for them is sometimes difficult for her, and she feels safer with her dog in her home as well as giving her a reason to get up every day."
"The committed caregivers who show respect and hang in even when the level of need is challenging and tough.."
"Everything is terrific! The caregivers are kind, organized and overall just terrific!"
"The caregivers assigned to assist my mother in the hospital provided very good care and support, as well keeping the rest of the family involved and informed."
"The staff of Home Instead Senior Care treat my parents with respect and dignity. they are amazing. all the staff have been excellent. Honest.Their help to our parents has been greatly appreciated and always will be. Recommend Home Instead senior Care to anyone needing excellent care for family or friends. Sincerely: Patti Pfeifer"
"I appreciate the staff letting me know when issues arise with my relative. They have made timely appointments and had health questions answered quickly before situations became more serious. This is something that is impossible for us as we live far away. Knowing someone is checking and knows our relative so well and that they see someone every week gives us peace of mind."
"I appreciate the warmth, love and compassion given to my brother by his home instead workers. Thanks"
"Home Instead was a life saver for my family. Mom had two bad falls resulting in two broken legs and a transition to long term care. Home Instead was recommended to me by an acquaintance and we followed up on it. Karen spent a very long time with my sister and me and matched mom perfectly with Charlene who has become almost like another family member. I cannot say enough good things about her and have recommended Home Instead to many of my friends who are struggling with elder care. Mom (who has dementia) loves her dearly and has said to her, ‘you're mine’. I don't know what we'd do without Charlene."
"Great service & staff! It has really helped my sister and myself in the care of our mother. Both of us work and this service has been of benefit as our backup, assistant for appointments and the matched with my mother is just perfect. Thanks."
"Gives us peace and joy knowing that our loved one is happy and well cared for by the CAREGivers."
"My sister and I spent a great deal of time to find the best services possible for our 96 year old mother to keep her in her own home and provide outings twice a week. Home Instead has been excellent in helping us do that."
