My family have worked with Home Instead to provide care for my mother over the last 9 months as her physical and mental health have declined precipitously. We have been extremely impressed with their service. Aspects of Mum's care that have been particularly good are Home Instead's staff both managers and carers ability to see and provide what Mum needed and find the right carers for her. Care is the right word as the staff have always placed Mum at the centre of what they have provided and her carers have given her hours of fun as well as providing support with daily living. They have also visited her in hospital which has meant a great deal.
We have felt supported as a family particularly when Mum needed 24-hour care. The Home Instead team signposted us to the agencies which they felt they could work with and offered us advice about the best way forward. Their support was invaluable.

My mum has been delighted with the care she has received from Home Instead. Her carers are always punctual. They are professional, helpful, cheerful, caring and a pleasure to be with. They notice when little jobs need doing without being prompted. They always ask if there is anything else they can do, we'd be lost without them.

To access the right care is a minefield, but after reading in the local press about the company and a couple of unsatisfactory phone calls to others, the response from Home Instead gave me confidence. From the onset, the arrangement has worked far better than I anticipated. It was a big step as I booked it on behalf of my husband, but he is pleased and happy.
