What Our Clients Are Saying...“To Sue,
I can hardly see right now, I am so welled up with emotion. After I came back to DC from Wilmington, I realized there was one item I desperately wanted of Dad’s. I was so distracted when we emptied his room, I did not even think of it. I called the facility where he was living and they had already given away all his clothes that we donated.
I just received Dad‘s ashes from the funeral home and because you thought to take it to the hospital for him, they included the clothes that went with him, including…his yellow jacket.
I can’t even begin to tell you how much this means to me and to my brothers, too. Dad has worn it since I was a little girl and half the photos I have of him are of him in it. I was devastated as I thought it was gone forever and clutching it right now is truly the best gift anyone could ever have given me. All because of you, I am eternally grateful.”

Thank you, thank you, thank you. Our dear friends - all the care givers - you were so wonderful in taking care of our mother. We never had an anxious moment. For all those months - we were totally at peace. Mother got the best of care from such caring people. Thank you for being our friends - we value your friendship and appreciate your kind notes."

"... Dear Precious Friends,
How can I thank all of you enough for the many acts of kindness you have shown our family over these last years? We have had wonderful caregivers to help during this time I have been blessed to have my sweet mother share our home and our lives. Your caregivers have all been truly compassionate, loving, gentle people - helpful and reliable also. The care has truly been exceptional and I thank all these "angels"! Your staff has also been wonderful - always finding someone to help us when needed, always friendly. All the above ultimately made possible because of Darrell and Sarah; their diligence, hard tireless work, and great care in choosing such wonderful caregivers. Thank you all so much for everything. Mom loved all of you, as do I. Sarah, a special thank you for being there when I desperately needed you.
Please stay in touch - all my love."

"... Dear Home Instead,
I can't say enough good things about Home Instead! You have all been so helpful to me in transitioning my Aunt from her home of 30 years in Wilmington to an Assisted Living here in Virginia. The whole process was made so much easier because of what you guys did to help - not only with all the "things" that had to be done, but also with preparing her physically and emotionally for the big change in her life. She is adjusting pretty well and I feel that a lot of it is due to what you did for her. Thanks, thanks, thanks. I know she was able to stay in her home as long as possible because of all of you. She misses all of her Caregivers and sends her love. God bless each of you!
