I was introduced to Home Instead when my elderly mother attended the Memory Clinic at Southend Hospital where she is a patient.  Their leaflet was given to me as part of a package of information provided to me as carer.     I was looking essentially for a 'mumsitting' service which would provide my mother with mainly security and companionship but with an element of care to cover for essential absences when I would be away and unable to perform those services myself.  I chose Home Instead from the package of information I was given because of the company's good reputation and their emphasis on putting together an individual service for the end user.   Indeed, Lee Connolly was very keen to present Home Instead as a tailor made service with the needs of its client as the paramount consideration.   The brief was a difficult one as my mother was very resistant to having outside care of any kind and the service provided has been tailored to our needs, of a high standard and above all reliable, even at short notice.  The carer who was introduced to us had the right experience and was educated to degree standard.  She was very personable, conscientious and obliging.  Most importantly, she was kind and caring and had an impressive maturity for her years.  We have found our contacts at Home Instead to be approachable, flexible, unfailingly courteous and eager to do the job in hand.    It has given us peace of mind at a difficult time.   Joanna P
