In-home Help for Washington Seniors

Totem Poles, Ferry Rides and Other Altered Vacations

Poor Mom. I don't think a single family vacation ever went as planned. Like the trip to Kalama to see the totem poles, which ended up as a trip to the emergency room when my brother stepped on a nail. Or the ferry ride in Seattle where we first learned that I get seasick easily. And then there was the nature trail hike at Spirit Lake. Back then, before Mount St. Helens erupted, the forest was dense and the massive firs towered over us. How was I to know it was poison ivy I was inspecting?

What Any Good Mother Would Do

I came down with the flu at the "space age" world's fair, so mom spent two days in a motel room, feeding me saltine crackers and reading to me while Dad and the boys rode the monorail and ascended in the "bubbleator" to the "world of tomorrow." Mom and I would just have to wait to see what the future would hold.

Handling Life's Unexpected Turns

My folks have spent over 50 years in the house in Yakima, 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 Stay In The Home They Love 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.
