"Working with Home Instead opened up a world of new opportunities and possibilities for our family in caring for my father, who lived with dementia and ALS. First, they were able to help in so many areas above and beyond what was allowable within the public system of Home Care. If my father wouldn’t engage in activities on a particular day, they could still assist my mother with other things around the house. This partnership gave us more control over scheduling, plus an open dialogue and communication with the providers, and they stepped forward to find the right personality and skills match for my father’s unique needs. When he ended up in hospital suddenly, and then hospice, we were given even more support by their team. We chose to have round-the-clock care for my father, and Home Instead responded to our call from the emergency room instantly. What’s more, they had a solution for us implemented in just a couple of hours. This gave us the breathing room we needed to go home periodically for self-care between visits. It helped lessen the overwhelming feeling of guilt in leaving his bedside. It also increased our confidence that someone was there to advocate for him and our wishes, to be our eyes and ears, to provide added companionship for my father, and ensure hospital and hospice care workers were also aligning with our wishes for his care. We learned that the public system does what it can to provide some foundational support but simply cannot respond to the variety and the scale of the needs for all citizens. Home Instead was the solution we needed for our experience. This gave us a balanced approach to my father’s care in the last year of his life, and at the end of life. Thank you. Your gifts of time, helpfulness and compassion will never be forgotten.
