Two-Step to the Altar
She was from New Braunfels and he was a young soldier from Abilene stationed at Fort Sam Houston. She was sitting on one of the long wooden benches lining the walls of the Gruene dance hall when he asked her to dance. They two-stepped and lindy-hopped until, breathless, they headed down to the Guadalupe River to cool their feet in the moonlight. She swears that, as they sat at a picnic table under lights strung in the trees, she knew she'd just met her husband.
A Sweet Life in Texas
After Dad got out of the Army, they bought the house in Beaumont where they raised four kids, three dogs and a cat. The big yard has been the site of pirate battles, Easter egg hunts, sing-a-longs around bonfires and more than one flag football game. That house has survived 7 grandchildren, 5 great-grandchildren, two hurricanes and the sadness of our father's passing last year.
Dealing with Change
Our jobs have spread us kids all over this big Lone Star State. We visit when we can and help out with repairs, and now Mom tells bedtime stories to the great-grandchildren. But we're all worried about her being alone in that big house. She loves it and all the memories. She'd never leave her dog, Ladybird, to move to assisted living, but she really needs help with some of the daily tasks
that are getting harder for her. How can we help her have a happy ending in her own home?

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.
