In-Home Care for Seniors in Jacksonville & Orange Park

The Home Instead Senior Care network of locally owned and operated franchises is one of the most trusted networks of home care worldwide. An innovator in eldercare since 1994, Home Instead Senior Care is dedicated exclusively to helping seniors stay in their homes as they age.

 
Christian and Betsy Miller are the owners of Home Instead Senior Care serving the West Jacksonville area including Clay, Duval, and Baker Counties.  Living and working in the area for over 16 years they both know the people and communities served by Home Instead.  Christian is a licensed C.P.A. and has worked as a corporate controller for both public and privately owned companies in the North Florida area.  Betsy has spent the past 11 years actively involved in the community as a volunteer and at home raising their two children.  She also has a background as a financial advisor and experience with Long Term Care Insurance.  Combining their talents and personalities they are eager to provide the highest quality of care in the home care industry with a personal touch.

 
Many people are fortunate enough to have family nearby but for the Miller’s this hasn’t always been the case.  Losing both parents by the age of 35 Christian felt obligated to help when his Grandmother who lived 5 hours south in Miami could not care for herself.  She had lived in South Florida all of Christian’s life and after discussion with his Uncle who lived in Maryland we decided moving her would not be the best choice.  She had remarried after being a widow and asking her husband to move or moving her away from him was not in anyone’s best interest.  Her husband wanted to take care of her but after a few falls and a broken hip we had no choice but to move her to a nursing home.  Home Care as an option was never presented to us.  In hindsight maybe the falls could have be prevented or at least prolonged.  Christian spent the last 3 months of his Grandmother’s life driving 5 hours south once a week to visit her in the nursing home, maintaining his corporate job, and being a husband and Father.  Our mission is to help improve our client’s quality of life and to also focus on helping to lessen the demands of family and friends during these times of need.   

 
It is our goal to ensure resources are not only available but that families are made aware and are being educated about how to best care for their loved ones.  Home Instead is the leader in the industry and together we stand at the forefront in the Jacksonville community helping seniors and their families.​
