In-home Help for West Virginia Seniors

Harpers Ferry, The Big Dipper and Other Altered Vacations

Poor Mom. I don't think a single family vacation ever went as planned. Like the trip to Harpers Ferry, which ended up as a trip to the ER when my brother got stung by bees. Or our visit to Charleston and Camden Park. I couldn't wait to ride The Big Dipper, but we soon learned that I get sick on roller coasters. And then there was the nature trail hike at Watoga State Park. How was I to know those pretty little flowers I was inspecting were poison ivy?

Handling Life's Unexpected Turns

My folks have spent over 50 years in the house in Wheeling, 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.

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.
