Latest Review from our community

I joined Home Instead over 3 years ago. From the time I was 15, I’ve always had a job but nothing compares or even comes close to working with Home Instead! It’s given me a whole new LIFE! I love getting up in the morning knowing that I’m going to make a difference each and every day I work. Home Instead has brought so much happiness back into my life. Getting to help my clients with everyday needs and care and companionship is so rewarding! 2020 was a very hard year for a lot of people and working for this company made me feel like I was so needed and appreciated. From my coworkers to my bosses I have always had their support and help. Home Instead not only gives you clients but they make sure that you’re a great fit for these clients so that you can build a great relationship with them as well. They cheer you on and always let you know that you’re so appreciated! I want to thank Home Instead for changing my life for the better! And to all the staff and coworkers we ARE A FAMILY!

FAQs

Senior Care CAREGiving Q&A

A: I make scheduled visits to seniors’ homes to provide companionship and help them with everyday tasks. Sometimes that means going to their family home, and other times it means serving them in a care facility.
A: Every day is different, and I love that variety! One day I might be cooking lunch and playing cards with a client, and the next day I may be helping a different client. No matter what tasks I’m performing, I leave each shift with a deep sense of accomplishment.
A: That’s easy! Home Instead doesn’t require previous caregiving experience. Their training program is so thorough that I learned everything I needed to know to provide confident care right away. All I had to bring to my interview was a compassionate heart.
