Amy started the business in 1987 as she saw a need in our local community to provide the aging population with an affordable, personal option to age in place. She works hard to create a plan of care for each and every client based on their needs, ensuring that every senior is treated with the dignity and respect they deserve. With constant communication and personal touches no matter where a client calls home, Amy and her team ensure that the Home Instead motto, "To us, it's personal", is a living breathing way of doing business.‚Äč
