A Professional Company Ready to Serve Seniors

Home Instead Senior Care is a licensed in-home personal care company serving Mecklenburg County, North Carolina. Established in February of 2000, we have become the industry leaders in the greater Charlotte community. This is thanks to the strength of our long term relationships with professionals in the health care and senior communities, as well as the excellent reputation we have earned in serving our clients. We are known for being the 24-hour specialists as well as the company that responds quickly.

Every day, all across America, families are struggling to cope. Many are raising children, working demanding jobs and trying to care for elderly parents or senior family members. That's because America is aging in record numbers.

By the year 2020, the number of seniors will equal the number of 20 to 35 year olds. Advances in medicine and healthier lifestyles will help seniors work longer and continue to lead more productive lives. But the numbers also tell another story. More and more children need to provide care and companionship for their aging parents. These family caregivers eventually run out of hours in the day, the stress becomes too great, and the balance is broken.

Enter Home Instead Senior Care of Mecklenburg County

Les and Roberta Farnum, our local owners, began this company in Charlotte, North Carolina, because of a caregiving need for seniors in their own family.
