​​​​​​​​​​ ​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​

Home Instead Senior Care of Port St Lucie FL is locally owned and operated by Patricia and Mike Strickland.  Local ownership ensures friendly, responsive care right in your neighborhood but as part of the Home Instead network our team has access to the resources, experience and expertise of 1000 offices,  75,000 Caregivers and the lessons learned from millions of hours of in home care services delivered each year.

Our History

After leaving her Information Technology career to stay home with her family in 2008, Patricia decided to return to work but wanted to do something more rewarding.  A friend introduced her to caregiving and Home Instead Senior Care.  Initially, Patricia joined the Home Instead office in Vero Beach as a CAREGiver serving clients with Alzheimer's disease, Parkinson's disease, diabetes and other chronic illnesses.  Patricia found a new passion.  The more Patricia and Mike became involved with helping seniors, the clearer it became that working with seniors and their families to address the challenges of aging was what they wanted to do. ​

The Challenge

Every day, all across America, families are struggling to cope.  Many are raising children, working demanding jobs and trying to care for a senior family member.  These Americans are often called the "Sandwich Generation", and they are growing in record numbers.  By the year 2020, the number of seniors will equal the number of 20 to 35 year olds.  Advances in medicine and healthier lifestyles will help seniors work longer and continue to lead more productive lives.  But the numbers also tell another story.  More and more children need to help care for their parents.  These family caregivers eventually run out of hours in the day, the stress becomes too great and the balance is broken.

The Port St Lucie Home Instead Senior Care family has a passionate desire to address this challenge and be your trusted source of assistance helping your family keep your mother, father, grandparents or friends in their home as they grow older. We offer an affordable solution for seniors who may require help with light housekeeping, meal preparation, medication reminders, bathing or personal care, grocery shopping and errands but can also provide companionship, inspiration,  Alzheimer's and Dementia care, and Respite Care.  Patricia explains "We don't consider our CAREGivers to be a 'nanny' or 'babysitting' service.  We believe in treating seniors with dignity and respect and helping them maintain their independence for as long as possible". 

No matter where seniors live, in their home, in assisted living, skilled nursing or independant living communities, Home Instead Senior Care is currently providing thousands of hours of senior home care services annually.

Services can be arranged for as little as 3 hours, or as many as 24 hours, up to 7 days per week (including holidays).  Trained, bonded, insured, and matched to clients' preferences, professional CAREGivers help clients in their homes with activities that used to be simple -  grabbing a can of soup from the top shelf, opening the mail, reading a book, grocery shopping, folding laundry or scrapbooking family history. It's reassuring to family members who can't always be there to know our CAREGivers are making life easier. Our compassionate CAREGivers love working with seniors and very special attention is given to matching them with clients to achieve the utmost compatibility. And in those situations when a client has aging-related medical needs beyond our home care capabilities, we refer them to our close partners in the health care community.
