Business Owner Profile

Your Home Instead Senior Care franchise owners possess a heartfelt desire to work with seniors in their community. It's the reason why they were chosen to serve seniors and their families right here in Montgomery and the surrounding counties.

Bill and Sheila Purnell have personal experience with family care-giving needs, as Sheila and her siblings cared for their aging father so he could continue living independently. The Purnells use their strong interpersonal skills, team orientation, and desire to succeed to help their clients "live life to its fullest" and to give the families of those they serve "hope and encouragement." They have assembled a dedicated office staff to help them in their quest to provide Montgomery and the surrounding counties with the highest quality home care available.​
