Mark Labib - President and Owner

My name is Mark Labib. I currently live and grew up in Syosset, NY.  I am blessed to say I am married to my lovely wife Nicole and the proud father of three amazing children.  I graduated from UMASS-Amherst in 1998. I was an Economics major. I spent 13 years working on Wall St. as an equities trader. In December 2009 I made a career change and bought the existing Home Instead Senior Care franchise. 

The first thing I hear from people is how did I go from wall street  to home care. It is a story I would like to share. I was always troubled by my career as a trader. It was very stressful. It was a career you could not leave at the office, it became all consuming. But the fact remained I was good at it and it provided me with a living. Then everything changed in January 2009. My father Maher Z. Labib, my hero, my friend, was diagnosed with Pancreatic Cancer. The diagnosis was not good. They gave him three months to live. I immediately took a leave of absence from work and resigned in February 2009 not knowing what was to come. I never returned to Wall St. I had decided it was time to move on. I spent the following months dealing with my dad's illness. My family needed me and I wanted to be there for them. As things settled down I started to think about my own situation. I decided it was time to do and work for myself. So my search began. In June 2009 I came across the Home Instead franchise for sale. I did my due diligence on the business and the industry. I was impressed with all of it. Maybe it was the fact that I spent every day in a hospital with my dad that gave me an appreciation from home care. maybe it was the fact I witnessed complete strangers care for my dad so passionately. Whatever it was it felt right. My father's  sickness and death lead  to the point where being a Home Instead Senior Care franchise owner was the right move for me and my family. 
I am grateful for everyday that lead me to this wonderful agency. I now love what I do. I love to meet with families and share my story as I personally know there struggles and pain for caring for an aging and sometimes ill parent.  It is a wonderful feeling knowing you make a diff​erence in a seniors life. I have found my calling. And most of all I thank my father. In a way Home Instead Senior Care of Merrick, NY was his parting gift to me.
