PurcelCourtneyEric.jpgA Passion for Serving Seniors and Their Families

Our families live and work in Joliet and throughout the area we service, so we're invested in our community on a very personal level.  And we believe every family in the area deserves individualized in-home senior care with a compassionate touch. That's why we established Home Instead Senior Care® of Will County and South Cook County.

As a locally owned business, we offer friendly, responsive service right in your neighborhood.   We're dedicated to making our community a better place to live for seniors and their families.

Eric and Courtney Pucel, owners of the Home Instead Senior Care office serving Will County and South Cook County, are passionate about providing quality care to seniors, peace of mind to families and meaningful employment for CAREGivers in the very community they grew up in.

In 2012, Eric and Courtney purchased the Home Instead Senior Care franchise that Courtney's aunt had established in 2000.  In 2004 Courtney left her teaching career to join the family business and has been passionate about living out the mission of Home Instead Senior Care ever since.  As a couple, Eric and Courtney strive to create a sense of family  within their Home Instead Senior Care office.  They are proud of the team they have built and are honored to be chosen by both clients and CAREGivers.

Eric and Courtney have personally experienced caring for loved ones and understand the needs of their clients and families.  They have had loved ones diagnosed with Alzheimer's, dementia and cancer and because of this, they have made it their mission to build the strongest team possible to provide the highest level of quality care. 

"We are honored to be the chosen provider of non-medical home care for so many in our community," says Courtney.  "It is our priority to provide first class service to our clients and families.  In addition, to be the employer of choice for so many CAREGivers and our Administrative Team is a blessing."

Trusted Senior Home Care Since 1994

Paul and Lori Hogan founded Home Instead, Inc. in 1994 in Omaha, Nebraska. Paul's own family experience caring for his grandmother led him to realize many families could use the help of an in-home caregiver. He and Lori set about creating a company to help seniors to live independently at home. That mission still drives the company and its franchise network today.

Home Instead, Inc. began franchising in 1995. Today, the Home Instead Senior Care network has grown to include more than 1,000 franchises around the world -- including this office in Joliet. While our franchise network is international, our office is local. And to us, senior home care is personal.​
