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.
"Very accommodating. Getting the same caregivers each week is a great help. The management is very open to discuss requests and/or problems."
"My mom has had several caregivers and she has enjoyed spending time with everyone one of them. They are attentive to all of her needs and very helpful with any assistance she requires. I, her daughter, am the one who communicates with the administrative office. My experience with them has been wonderful. When I call there is always an individual to speak with, I cannot remember a time when I left a message for a return call. They are extremely caring and accommodating. We have made changes to mom's schedule several times in the last few months and they have worked with us every step of the way. Mom, my family and I are very grateful for the care mom has received. I do not know what we would do without Home Instead."
"Mom loves her care givers. They take her to an hair appointment every week and to nail appointments too. They have become friends. I really appreciate their kind and generous way of helping mom."
"Everything from great caregivers to great office staff covering every aspect of Mom’s care."
"The staff and program helped our mother gain back much of her independence."
"Company is very professional. Always updates information and notifies of changes to schedule or personnel with plenty of notice. Very flexible and helpful with special requests."
"The communication with staff is amazing and the quick response to questions and inquiries is very much appreciated. They really understand the elderly and the need for family members to be kept in the loop."
"Hi! Everyone was so kind and personable. I could feel their sincerity and their true compassion for our mom & dad. they treated all of us with respect and they communicated any changes well. Mom and Dad and all of us felt listened to and of value and worth. Thankyou so much."
"Pleasant, reliable caregivers that do all the extras without thinking twice. The girls working with Mom are a perfect match. The office goes out of their way to accommodate companion and travel for appts. We are so, so lucky to have them involved."
"Home Instead is a great personable service providing assistance to families like ours facing challenging times while in transition with our mothers health. Its reassuring to know that she's in good care while providing for her needs, at the same time, paying attention to important issues surrounding her safety. Having to deal with health changes with a loved one and facing difficult choices ahead can be overwhelming at times. It's comforting to know that family members have someone to turn to when time is needed to give thought related to planning for the best interest of our mother. We're thankful the friendly staff who assist Mom are providing comfort to her and her family."
"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."
