CAREGiver Stories and Thoughts

Hi, I am Becky Beanblossom.  I started Home Instead Senior Care in Louisville back in May 1999.  I started this business because of an experience I had with my Grandfather, "Peachy".

Back in 1992 I had just graduated from the University of Louisville with a BSBA in Marketing.  After graduation Peachy had open heart surgery.  Dr. Devries did his surgery and we thought all was well.  Unfortunately Peachy was a very sick man and thus had a stroke during recovery.  Now my active Grandfather who used to regularly hunt and fish was confined to a wheelchair and completely paralyzed on his right side.  This strong man was reduced to hours of physical therapy, eating pureed food and having trouble expressing himself.

It was when we brought Peachy home that I truly learned the beauty in caring for another person.  We hired someone to stay with him during the week as he needed 24 hour care, and we took turns on the weekend.  It was one of the greatest privileges and one of the greatest burdens all at the same time.  It was far more difficult than I imagined as he was a tall man and difficult to maneuver.  However, it was also more rewarding than I could have ever expected.

It was in that period in my life that I became distinctly aware of how important the CAREGiver was in the life of the Client and how much the Client has to give and teach even when they are immobilized or trapped in their own body.  Years later when my husband and I were living in California we became acquainted with Home Instead Senior Care.  From the moment we heard about the company and the services they provided to seniors we knew this was the business for us.

Since 1999 we have tried to offer the highest quality care possible to the elderly living in Louisville.  We hope that if you choose to use Home Instead Senior Care that you will find the care to be exactly what is needed for your loved one.  I would be honored to help you and your family in your time of need.  If you choose to work with us at Home Instead Senior Care I hope you find this work as rewarding and important and we believe it to me.  Thank you for reading my story.  Becky Beanblossom
