Find Care That Enhances the Quality of Life

Evaluating Cost of Care

When evaluating the cost of care, you should weigh the outcomes of care, beyond pricing alone. It’s important to consider the person’s safety, well-being, need for companionship and quality of life. Care is something that should be put in place to, not only to keep the person safe and healthy, but to enhance a person’s enjoyment of life.

Companionship Testimonial

The Home Instead staff have been at my family's side supporting my father in his choice to continue living in his home. They have quickly adapted to any changes in my father's needs without missing a beat. I have not seen my father this happy and comfortable since my mother passed away. I would definitely recommend Home Instead to all families looking to assist in family being able to remain in the comfort of their homes for their retiring years. The Admin staff and the Caregivers are amazing people. You want to meet angels on earth this is where they are. Thank you to all the Home Instead team!

Complex Care Testimonial

I discovered this wonderful group in November of 2019. I am in a province 3000 miles from Kelowna & have parents who were enjoying the independent retirement life when both developed different versions of Dementia. This wonderful group of people worked in shifts that involved doctors appointments, shopping, or many other outings and handled everything so smoothly that my parents look on them as friends rather than caregivers. They are always on time and confident, and capable of dealing with many different situations, including the uncomfortable ones. They go above & beyond in keeping everything effortlessly smooth and positive. When things did get tough they gave me as much or more support than even my parents were given. The flexibility of what they can accomplish was so amazing! Every time something came up that would have confounded the most organized operation because of the distance and time difference, at the drop of a hat they offered comfort and advice that is always so caringly given. I am still requiring their services after more than a 17 months and am more grateful every day.

The CAREGivers from Home Instead were professional, caring and willing to assist, whether with the client or elsewhere in the house. Their confidentiality was valuable and at no time was there ever any concern with the Company divulging any personal matters. Thank you Home Instead for such dedication at such a difficult time.
