Joyce & Bob Koch opened their first Home Instead Senior Care office in Cary, IL in January, 2000. Soon they expanded, opening an additional office in Rockford, IL.
To owners, Joyce and Bob Koch it is personal! When Bob’s own father passed away after being diagnosed with cancer and his family struggled to provide constant 24hour care, he realized there were probably a number of families and seniors who were struggling the same way. Both Bob and Joyce knew this was their calling and with receiving their degrees in Management and Business Administration opened the doors to Home Instead Senior Care in January of 2000.
Bob discovered Home Instead Senior Care, a non-medical company which assists the elderly in their homes by providing a range of services to enhance their quality of life and keep them independently in their homes for as long as possible.
Bob and Joyce have a passionate desire to be your trusted source in helping your family keep your aging mother, father, grandparents or friends in their home as they grow older as well. Services may include medication reminders, meal preparation, light housekeeping, companionship, errands, shopping, assistance with trips to the doctor, shopping , personal care and even dementia and Alzheimer’s care. This results in allowing seniors to feel safe and independent while they age in place in the home they've lived in for years.
