Mary and David Dean
Mary and David Dean are the owners of the Spirit Lake, IA office of Home Instead Senior Care. This husband and wife team enjoys working with others and is passionate about making a difference in the lives of seniors and their caregivers.
Mary is a registered nurse and worked as a case manager and then as caregiver advocacy director at the Northwest Aging Association in Spencer, IA. After exploring the idea of owning a Home Instead Senior Care franchise, the Deans realized this was an ideal way to make a relevant difference in the lives of seniors in their community.
“I enjoy working with seniors and making a difference in their lives,” says Mary. Our goal is to help seniors age in place in their own homes, whether that be in a house, apartment, assisted living or nursing home, by providing non-medical in home care that focuses on helping seniors with their daily activities to remain safe and healthy.
Home Care for Seniors
The Home Instead Senior Care® network of locally owned and operated franchises is one of the most trusted networks of home care worldwide. An innovator in eldercare since 1994, Home Instead Senior Care is dedicated exclusively to helping seniors stay in their homes as they age.
Care You Can Trust
Home Instead Senior Care franchise owners, administrators and CAREGiversSM all share a passion for improving the quality of life for seniors and families in their communities. Here in your community, we offer a range of non-medical services that can be customized to your needs so you’ll get exactly the help you need. Our CAREGivers are area residents who are kind, compassionate and truly enjoy working with seniors. They are professionals, extensively trained in elder care, and all are screened, insured and bonded.
Home Instead, Inc. demonstrates commitment to quality care through our proprietary PEAQ program – Pursuing Excellence by Advancing Quality. In fact, we commissioned J.D. Power and Associates to routinely survey CAREGivers and clients to ensure consistent delivery of high-quality service.
