Buck and Debbie Stark, Franchise Owners

Buck and Debbie Stark, Franchise Owners

​Buck and Debbie Stark bought the Iowa City franchise in July of 2007, to provide quality in-home care to seniors in the Iowa City/ Coralville area, Johnson, Cedar, Iowa, Muscatine and Washington counties. Buck and Debbie were inspired to own and operate a Home Instead Senior Care franchise in 2006 and 2007, when Buck’s 83 year-old father suffered from a stroke, broken hip and broken leg. After coming out of the hospital he needed care at home. At that time they were introduced to Home Instead Senior Care. As they learned more, they were so impressed with the family-focused team atmosphere, culture, purpose, and mission of Home Instead Senior Care and felt that the values of the company truly reflected their own. They enjoy making a difference in the lives of clients, helping fulfill their hopes and dreams of aging in place.
