Companionship and Home help

We’ll Be There When You Can’t Be

You call her every day … you shop for her … you take care of her repairs … you drive her to the doctor and help her with paperwork. You’d like to do more, but you’ve got your job and your own family to think about, too. And yet, you worry about your loved one  being home by herself so many days. And you’re not alone

A Healthy Solution

Home Instead Senior Care’s companionship services not only relieve stress and worry for family caregivers, but they also provide the healthy interaction and activity that are vital for seniors in retaining cognitive abilities and physical health. Our kind and thoughtful CAREGivers truly enjoy working with our clients. And we find that most of our clients are much more likely to accomplish tasks and participate in favourite activities when they simply have a companion with whom to enjoy them.

Very happy with the service. Very flexible and great communication. Nothing ever seems to be a problem and they are happy to do anything to help mum. Given I live 200 miles away it is very reassuring.
