"I am continually struck by the professionalism, high level of caring and exemplary caregivers that I have met from Home Instead. My mom couldn't live without them, and neither could I.
Roger Carr is the owner of our Home Instead Senior Care franchise. He comes from Downers Grove, IL, and has a wife and son. Roger had a background in business, and was a computer programmer, when his father was diagnosed with lung cancer. This is when Roger became a family caregiver, helping out his parents with everything he could as his dad went through chemo. He thought there had to be someone out there who could help families like his. Shortly after his father passed away, Roger found Home Instead Senior Care, and opened our office in September 2003. He enjoys getting to take care of people who really need our help, and seeing our staff come together to make it work. If you ask Roger what his main duty is, as owner, he'll tell you, "My main duty is to make sure we have a culture of service to our seniors."
