"Home Instead Senior Care is personal to me because every day, 24 hours a day, we have the opportunity to make an impact on the life of a senior and their loved ones. Every minute of every day I can think to myself—right now a Home Instead Senior Care CAREGiver is helping a senior stay in the comfort of their home. Not Monday through Friday, not every other weekend, and not just during normal business hours but every minute of every day we are making a difference! And this can only be done by a team of individuals who are on a mission to help others. I am grateful to work with such a wonderful team of CAREGivers and administrative team members who live each day with the mission to help seniors stay home, wherever home may be."

companionship to our clients and their families 24 hours a day. It is such a
blessing to know that our team has an impact on the everyday lives of these
