“ I am an ex Government Inspector of Services. I cannot fault Home Instead, with its reliability, its professional approach and organisational structure, and the selection and training of the friendly and caring carers to meet the needs of the client. ’’
Mr DC - client's son
"All the family would like to thank you for the care and companionship you have provided for my mother over the past couple of years. It's been a relief to know that someone has been calling every day and looking after her. I know my mother could be difficult at times, but I suspect she appreciated it as well even though she might not have said so !"
Mr CB - client
Excellent carer, M goes the extra mile and is a wonderful carer and person
Mrs GC - client
Excellent, compassionate carers
Mrs JO - client's daughter
Our family have been very impressed with the care provided for my mother. We have the same three ladies who are more like friends or family than carers. Mum is comfortable with them and they just continue to maintain her independence and dignity. A lifeline at this point in her life. So grateful and impressed. Thank you so much. The team at Basingstoke are very approachable and totally dedicated to providing a quality service. Always friendly and helpful, even at short notice. A well oiled machine !
Mr CP - client
Home Instead have supported and enabled me to live in my own home. Following the death of my wife, I had two hospital admissions and felt very sad and hopeless. Home Instead have helped me tremendously to keep going.
Mr CB - client's grandson
Home Instead Senior Care are sincere and professional and provided compassionate care for my Grandmother. My Grandmother who was a former NHS nurse but is now 91 yrs old looks forward to the visits and is genuinely happy with the service, who provide care with warmth and personality. She has built a great rapport with the carers. I would have no hesitation in recommending Home Instead to other friends and family.
Mr LC - client
Recently both my wife and myself were in hospital with leg problems & Home Instead responded immediately to increase care and remove any worries we had about living at home. The care team visit twice a day and all our needs are covered.
Mr JS - client's son
"Both my mum and I have always been impressed with your company, particularly during my visit to NZ and Australia, during what was a difficult time for her."
Social worker GB regarding client
"I wanted to express the son's views that the care is of a high quality and he has the utmost trust with the carers / agency regarding the service that is being provided to his mother. It was lovely to hear about Home Instead's quality of care being excellent."
Mrs AV - client's daughter
"Your girls are my mum's "Angels". They are so caring and compassionate, we couldn't manage without them. They are also the sisters I never had. A great thank you to all the staff - you "go the extra mile"."
Mrs IB - client's daughter
"I would like to express the gratitude that I feel (and I am sure I also speak for my dad) for all the kindness shown by his excellent team of carers. They really have been so good to him in so many ways and I would very much like them to know how much we appreciate all they do."
Mrs SW - client's daughter
"Thank you and your staff for all the help you have given Mum and if in the future we do need further help I would have no hesitation in contacting you."
Mrs NQ - client's wife
My husband formed a strong bond with his carer, so much so that we have continued that visit now that he is in a care home. It is a highlight of his week.
