Julie Schelling - Franchise Owner

Julie Schelling - Franchise Owner
Caring for others has long been Julie Schelling’s passion. She was a former teacher who taught music education at all grade levels.  The personal relationships she formed with her students was her favorite part of teaching.

Julie then made a career change and she and her husband Sheldon spent 7 and half years owning and operating an assisted living facility – this is where her desire to serve seniors was ignited.

Now as the owner of three Home Instead Senior Care franchises in Kansas City, it is her goal to provide the best possible care to seniors in the Kansas City area and give their families the peace of mind they deserve.  It is her goal to provide individualized care to every client served.  In her spare time, Julie enjoys an occasional spa day, traveling and spending time with her grandchildren.

Sheldon Schelling - Franchise Owner

Sheldon Schelling - Franchise Owner
Aging at home is a normal concept for Sheldon. Born and raised in a close knit family in rural South Dakota, Sheldon observed firsthand how families work together to care for their elders. Sheldon's maternal Grandmother and his paternal Grandparents lived at home until the very end of life. His maternal Grandmother was a kind and gentle woman who, in retrospect, had Alzheimer’s disease for the last 15 years of her life. She lived with her daughter and her family for as long as Sheldon can remember. The highlight of the year was each summer when Sheldon and his family would take the 300 mile trip to western Nebraska to visit family for a few days, followed by Grandma traveling back home to South Dakota with Sheldon's family for a week or two. When Sheldon was a teenager, these trips began to have a sense that something was wrong with Grandma because she was getting "hardening of the arteries" or "senile". The trips back to South Dakota decreased as towards the end they caused such anxiety for Grandma because of her inability to remember where she was and in the very end, who we were. Sheldon's paternal Grandparents also stayed in their home with significant help from their children. At the end, both families were tired and burnt out on caring for their loved ones and all ended up spending their last days in a facility. In looking back, Home Instead Senior Care could have significantly eased the toll of caring for his Grandparents and made for a much nicer end of life.

These early experiences were formative in shaping Sheldon's career of caring. Sheldon eventually received a Masters in Counseling and a Master of Social Work degree and found his calling for aging adults. He spent his social work career caring for older adults in the VA Health Care system and in the assisted living he and his wife Julie owned and operated. They are now solely focused providing exceptional in home care for aging adults through their Home Instead Senior Care franchises. In addition to owning the three Home Instead franchises, Sheldon has a business that does psycho-therapy for aging seniors in their home setting.
