In-home Help for Maryland Seniors

A Teacher and Hero

When I was a kid, Uncle Bill was my hero. He was Dad's youngest brother, a high school science teacher, but to me he was larger than life. Whenever he visited, I'd follow him like a shadow, but he didn't mind. He'd just tug my ponytail and grin. Whether watching Jim Palmer and the Orioles at Memorial Stadium or cruising Route 27 to the Jimmie Cone, Uncle Bill made everything more fun.

An Explorer and Mentor

Most summers, Uncle Bill joined our family on vacation. Together, we hiked along the Calvert Cliffs, paddled down Antietam Creek, and explored the trails and tidal marshes at Gunpowder Falls State Park. A true teacher at heart, Uncle Bill sparked my interest in geology as he explained the stalactite and stalagmite formations in Luray Caverns.

A Hero's Changing Needs

I owe a lot to Uncle Bill. He urged me to attend college and study geology -- a traditionally male field. It was difficult, but my uncle was always there to encourage me. Since Aunt Sarah died, I've wished I lived closer, so I could be there for him, like he was for me. We still talk and laugh on the phone, but it's obvious he's forgetful and getting confused at times. I worry that he's not eating properly and he might forget to take his medications.


Help Him Remain Independent With Home Instead Senior Care®

When family members or friends aren't able to help the older adults they love, Home Instead CAREGiversSM can. With a network of locations across Maryland, and worldwide, Home Instead Senior Care is all about taking care of older family members long-term in the homes they've enjoyed and treasured.  We provide a range of services including companionship, meal preparation, light housekeeping, medication reminders, shopping, errands—everything you'd do for your loved one, and more—to give you peace of mind, whether you live several states away or in the next county.

Inspired by a Personal Experience

It was Paul and Lori Hogan's own personal experience caring for their 100-year-old grandmother in her home that inspired them to launch Home Instead Senior Care in 1994. They realized many families had the same need for non-medical in-home care and elder companionship that could help seniors live independently at home. The demand for these important services has been so great, that the company's network now has 800 locally owned franchises across North America and around the globe.

Home Instead Senior Care services are available 24/7, every day of the year, including holidays, and are delivered by trusted CAREGivers who are screened, bonded and insured employees—never independent contractors.
