Business Owner Profile

Your Home Instead Senior Care franchise owners Tim and Clare Connelly possess a heartfelt desire to work with seniors in the community. It's the reason why they were chosen to serve seniors and their families right here in the Bellevue Area as well as the Council Bluffs area.

A native Nebraskan, Tim graduated from Creighton University and has dedicated much of his professional career to serving seniors and their families.

Prior to purchasing the office that serves Sarpy County, Nebraska and Southwest Iowa, Tim worked at Home Instead Senior Care’s Global Headquarters in Omaha, Nebraska.

In his spare time, Tim enjoys golfing and helping his children participate in youth sports.

Tim's wife Clare has a professional background in nursing.

Tim and Clare look forward to providing area seniors with options for long-term care and to providing the services needed to help them remain safely in their homes for as long as possible.
