"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."
Our CAREGivers are all wonderful people with a passion for helping others. They come from a wide range of backgrounds and age groups, and live locally. Our CAREGivers have all passed multiple criminal background checks - above and beyond state guideline requirements. They are all English-speaking, and are screened, trained, bonded, and insured. Because they are our employees, we take care of all the paperwork, so you never have to worry about filing a 1099 or other tax issues. And, we manage the schedule and Client/CAREGiver relationship.
Home Instead offers free monthly newsletters with tips and advice for caregivers of elderly loved ones.
Each Home Instead Senior Care franchise is independently owned and operated.
