As owner of Home Instead Senior Care in Bozeman and Helena I am rewarded in working with some of the best people I have ever known. I also have the opportunity every day to experience the joy one gets in helping others. The relationships we have built through the years with people in the healthcare community has opened the door to knowledge that is crucial in caring for our senior clients. Establishing trust, sharing our heart, and taking the lead has been and will continue to be our focus, but above all making the world better for our clients and their families is our mission. At Home Instead Senior Care we love what we do!
I am motivated by my own mother, father, and grandmother who struggled with cancer, diabetes, heart disease, and Alzheimer’s. I know firsthand how difficult it can be for families as well as the individual suffering through these health issues. Just because we age or have illness doesn’t mean we quit living.
Through our experience, world class training programs, and passion to help others we offer solutions for you and your loved ones by providing kind, caring, and compassionate care. Someone recently said, “If you do just one kind thing every day for someone else, you will always be happy”. At Home Instead Senior Care we know this is true!

Hi, my name is Ruth Ann, and I am the other franchise owner here in Bozeman and Gallatin County. I owe so much to my parents who taught me to treat others with dignity and respect. I know they learned it from their parents and them from theirs as we are from a long line of pioneering families. I believe doing for others is the best work of life so when my husband and I got the opportunity to help seniors live a better life here in Southwest Montana I jumped on and held tight. I’m named after both of my Grandmothers. Ruth lived to be 104. When she turned 100 there was a big family birthday party and granny played softball with her grandchildren and great-grandchildren. She was a short lady, but everyone looked up to her. My Mom was 40 when I was born and my Daddy, 45. Almost always I remember being a CAREGiver. Mom had Rheumatoid Arthritis real bad and Daddy had Diabetes and Parkinson’s Disease. I helped a lot, but I was just a kid. They had it rough. As I got older I got better. If Home Instead Senior Care had existed then they could have had a more fulfilling life. Now I own a Home Instead Senior Care Franchise. There’s not too many days that go by that I don’t think about my folks. I take my job seriously and look for seniors that need help. The CAREGivers we hire are compassionate and caring people. They are wonderful individuals. I wish I could have had them help take care of my parents. We teach them that every person’s life is worth a novel, we know they treat everyone with dignity and respect. If you are looking for caring and compassionate CAREGivers to help your loved one you came to the right place. “To us, it really is personal.”

Joanne grew up in the Philippines. She has seen many different situations in life and is now continuing her journey seeking to help seniors who struggle with tasks that have become more difficult as they age. She has a wonderful loving heart with compassion and kindness apparent in her daily actions. As our weekend coordinator she is always eager to help! Joanne says, “Making a difference in other people’s lives can’t be achieved by living only for yourself and this is the reason why I truly believe in the kind of care that our Caregivers provide. They really do care about others, not just about seniors but their family members as well. Being part of the Home Instead Senior Care team I am given the opportunity to understand my own community and the people in it. Connecting with others is ultimately what helps us create strong bonds amongst each other. I strive for the best in life and this quality is what I believe Home Instead Senior Care does as well. I am very happy to be a part of helping families achieve the best for their loved ones.”
Smokey, a genuine registered Blue Tick Coonhound, is the mascot for Home Instead Senior Care. Our staff, CAREGivers, and clients just love him, and he compassionately loves them back. He flew in from Tennessee back in 2014 and has been helping to enhance the lives of others since then. You might see Old Smokey traveling to any of the senior communities in Southwest Montana or right up to a client’s house to share his affection for all he comes in contact with. When Old Smokey isn’t working to please others he likes lying in front of a good fire or frankly lying anywhere, after all he’s a hound dog! If you are a client and want Old Smokey to come see you just give our office a call, and he will put on his jacket and head right over.
"I am continually struck by the professionalism, high level of caring and exemplary caregivers that I have met from Home Instead. My mom couldn't live without them, and neither could I.
