Home Instead was able to step in with extremely short notice and provide care that was equal to and surpassed what we as a family had been providing, which was a great stress reliever at this difficult time.
Brent, Lynn and their caring staff helped us keep Mom in her home until the last three weeks of her life when we decided it would be best to move her to palliative. They were incredibly caring and supportive on that final day as we prepared Mom to leave her home of 60 years.
The care that Mom received with Alberta Health Services in palliative care lacked dignity, comfort and love, and was a shock and disappointment after the fantastic person-centered service we had been able to achieve with Home Instead. In hind sight, knowing the struggle and arguments we went through with palliative care, keeping Mom at home with the help of the Home Instead team, would perhaps have been the better choice.
The work that Brent, Lynn and their team do is a life saver for a family. Entrusting someone else with a loved one's care was a tall order for me, however, I am able to say that because of them I was able to spend quality, loving time with my mom in her final months. Priceless! Thank you!" - Sandi H, November 2017 ★★★★★
