Home Care for Seniors

I am franchise owner, David Gardenhire and I am pleased you are reviewing information about Home Instead Senior Care and the services that we can provide to you and your loved ones. I am delighted to share all the information I can with you about our excellent organization and all the services that we can provide to assist you.

Our Home Instead Senior Care staff and I have a heart of caring and a true, meaningful desire to serve the seniors in our area with dignity and respect.

My father and mother, James and Sandra Gardenhire opened the Home Instead Senior Care office in Chattanooga in 1996 with a desire to assist seniors in staying in the comfort of their own home as long as possible. Over the years, Home Instead Senior Care has developed an outstanding reputation for hiring excellent CAREGivers and assisting over 2000 people within Chattanooga and the surrounding areas. I joined Home Instead Senior Care in 2009 and worked as the General Manager. In 2014, my parents decided to retire and I knew that Home Instead was where I wanted to stay! I purchased the business with a goal of assisting every senior out there in our area to be able to stay at home as long as possible. It is our goal to provide top quality care and excellent CAREGivers that will assist any way possible and go above to ensure all seniors are treated with dignity and respect.

I am married to Julie Gardenhire, who is a very big asset to my business as well. With her help, she and I do the very best we can to assist each person and provide excellent care to each senior we are in contact with. I have 2 children, Mattie and Colt, who are very high spirited and the love of our lives.

We invite you to take a look at our website and take notice of all the services that Home Instead Senior Care provides for you and your family to keep you or your loved one at home (or wherever they call home) as long as possible. When you are ready for help, our dedicated staff is available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week to answer any questions and assist you with any senior care needs.

Thanks so much for visiting our website. We look forward to being able to assist you or your loved one in the near future.
