A Do-It-Yourself Dad
I don't remember mom and dad ever hiring a handyman, or plumber or electrician. It seemed like Dad could do anything. Car repairs? No mechanic needed. If there was anything my father couldn't figure out on his own, he called up his brothers. While the uncles huddled under the hood of the Chevy, sharing stories and Schlitz, I received equal parts teaching and teasing, as I learned to change spark plugs.
There's No Place as Sweet as Home
My albums are filled with photo memories of vacations in the Dells, Dad with his prize muskie at Pewaukee Lake, Mom in her Packers sweatshirt and we kids at camp in Chippewa Falls. But we all agree our favorite memories took place right at home -- family dinners on Sundays and then gathering around the TV for a football marathon.
Dealing with Change
We've all moved away and Dad's brothers are gone now. And since Mom died last year, we've all been worried about Dad. He wants to stay in that great old house with all the wonderful memories, but our do-it-yourselfer needs some assistance himself. He seems forgetful lately, and we're not sure he's eating right. He's been such a giving person. How can we get him the care he deserves
so he can stay at 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.
