What People Say About Us
"Cannot speak highly enough. Nothing is ever too much trouble. Changes are always accommodated. Brilliant. It really is 'Home Instead' - CAREGivers are brilliant. Having only two CAREGivers eases anxiety. My husband wouldn't have recovered as well as he has without your support."AD, Wife of Client
"I would like to convey, on behalf of my parents, how delighted they are with the care and support being provided by Debbie. She has been extremely helpful and accommodating. Mum has developed a good rapport with her. Could you kindly pass on our thanks to Debbie for all she is doing. Thank you for all your help Michelle it has been greatly appreciated."Daughter, A.D.
"When I was looking for help in looking after my Mam I was being extremely fussy, my Mam was and still is my world so I needed carers who I could trust as I wasn’t leaving her in the care of anyone. I researched different companies and Home Instead seemed to tick all the boxes. I wasn’t disappointed with the care the ladies gave my Mam, I couldn’t have asked for more. I was never let down in the 6 months they were looking after her. They made sure she had the same group of carers and Mam got to know them. I was never worried like I was with the social service carers because I knew they were 100% reliable and this made it possible for me to let Mam stay at home and keep my promise to her. She was terrified of going in hospital or going into a home. Sadly, she passed away yesterday 2/10/17. I will always be truly grateful to the ladies Emma, Jill, Bev, Pat and Angela. Thank you so much."Daughter of Client, PM

"'Dad had his first visit from 'A' (CAREGiver) this morning and he thought she was new to your company as well as to him. He wanted me to get in touch with you to say how helpful she had been to him. All his lights went out around bedtime last night and when Angela got there this morning she found the consumer unit in the hall wardrobes and fixed the problem. It must have been quite a dramatic start to her new job but dad said she was great - so please say 'thank you' to her for us. Just wanted you to know what a good job she'd done!"JM, Daughter of Client
"I have worked for Home Instead for seven months and thoroughly enjoy my role. I have found the management approach to be a 'breath of fresh air' compared to other employers, management are always approachable and understand the simple concept that if carers are happy the clients in turn will reap the benefits. I look forward to my visits and I have met some wonderful people, it really is a mutually beneficial relationship. Supporting someone to remain in their own home, or to venture out when and where they wish is 'food for the soul'. It is such a privilege to be welcomed into people's homes and lives. Our clients are so intriguing and inspiring, diverse and rich in life experience. Like different facets of a precious jewel, which is treasured. I look forward to a long career with Home Instead Senior care. "CAREGiver's story ......
"I am so pleased to be part of the Home Instead team in Salford. I have a few hours a week to spare and I have been partnered with B who is living with dementia. I look forward to my visits to her as much as she looks forward to me visiting her. I go armed with hairbrushes, rollers, lipstick and nail varnish. I go out walking with her on good weather days or we visit the shops or hairdressers on bad weather days. We laugh together all the time. We laugh at silly things. From time to time we do some cleaning together or tidy the fridge. We enjoy each others company. It is a joy to support someone in their own home so that they can stay where they want to be for as long as possible. The team in Salford are also great fun and they have tremendous respect for all Clients and CAREGivers alike."Sandra - CAREGiver
"I was very apprehensive about having help and support for D as I felt I should be able to manage myself. However, I am used to it now and what is wonderful about our CAREGivers is that they are happy to let me help - they do not make me feel awkward. Equally if I need some 'me' time I am now able to have it. Thank you to everyone involved. We are very happy with Home Instead."MW, Client

This situation has been handled with sensitivity and good humour by all of the Home Instead team.
