In-home Help for Ontario Seniors

Memorable Family Holidays

When my brothers and I were small, Mom and Dad couldn't afford fancy hotel vacations. Instead, they'd pile us into the station wagon for camping trips. Packed into the back seat with our pillows and games, the three of us squirmed our way across Ontario, begging for birch beer and Smarties until Dad would give in and stop. No matter how bored we thought we were, Dad's enthusiasm always won us over and made each trip fun.

The Original Do-It-Yourself Team

Somehow, Mom and Dad saved enough money to buy an old bungalow fixer-upper in Ottawa. They were so happy and proud. Together, they stripped wallpaper, fixed plumbing and refinished floors, turning a run-down house into our home. When I was nine, Mom put a paintbrush in my hand so I could help, too. My little brothers were so jealous!

Changing Roles

Today, my parents still live in that house and they love the neighbourhood they've called home for so many years. My folks are still the same fun-loving people, with a can-do outlook, and they're determined to stay in their home. As Mom's arthritis has gotten worse, Dad's stepped up to do the cooking and cleaning. Yet during my last visit, he looked so tired. I noticed piles of paperwork and his wood shop has cobwebs. My brothers and I live too far away to help regularly, but we're concerned that taking care of the house—and of Mom—is wearing Dad down.

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.
