In-home Help for North Carolina Seniors

Sand Dunes, Deep-Sea Fishing and Other Altered Vacations

Poor Mom. I don't think a single family vacation ever went as planned. Like the trip to the sand dunes at Jockey's Ridge, which ended up as a trip to the ER when my brother, Tommy, got stung by bees. Or the deep-sea fishing excursion in Cape Hatteras where we first learned that I get seasick easily. And then there was the nature hike in the Great Smoky Mountains. How was I to know it was poison ivy I was inspecting?

What Any Good Mother Would Do

I came down with the flu on our trip to Raleigh, so mom spent two days in a motel room, feeding me saltine crackers and reading to me while Dad and Tommy rode the rides at the state fair and went to the Captain 5 live TV show at WRAL. Mom and I had to settle for watching on the snowy-pictured hotel television and wait for them to return with a minute-by-minute report and the big Captain 5 Space Crew badge Tommy flaunted mercilessly for months.

Handling Life's Unexpected Turns

My folks have spent more than 50 years in the house in Greensboro, and it's been their pride and joy -- landscaped to perfection and neat as a pin. But it's different now that Dad's in a wheelchair. Mom has handled the change with her usual grace. She takes care of him, just like she did for us, fixing his favorite meals, lovingly tying his shoes and smoothing his hair ... always followed by a kiss on the forehead. They really want to stay in the house they've shared for so long, but there's so much for mom to do. My brother and I do what we can, but we've got our jobs and she deserves to have some help every day.


Help Them 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.

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.
