Born & raised in Louisville, Becky and Brent were living in California when they discovered Home Instead Senior Care. After meeting with Sacramento-area Home Instead Senior Care Owner, Buck Shaw, the two decided to move back home to Louisville and Becky opened the first Home Instead Senior Care office in the state in May 1999. Both had the privilege of caring for an ailing grandparent and wanted to do something meaningful in their professional careers. Opening a business that serves seniors while also employing compassionate caregivers was perfect for them. Brent and Becky are honored to serve seniors and provide good jobs with excellent benefits to their staff. Their mission to help seniors and the employees who care for them has come to fruition.
