Buck 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 was 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 he learned more, he was 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 his own. He enjoys making a difference in the lives of clients, helping fulfill their hopes and dreams of aging in place.
