Shiv Puri, President & Owner
Shiv is the new owner of Home Instead, having taken over from Susan Miller, who retired in 2022 after 25 rewarding years. He is extremely proud to have retained the entire Home Instead team that has led to such a trusted and important homecare agency in Volusia County. A longtime advocate of health and wellness, Shiv became interested in Home Instead after facing how to care for his mother-in-law, who was diagnosed with stage 4 cancer.
“We wanted to honor my mother-in-law’s wishes to spend more time at home, and less time in the hospital, and it was very challenging for our family members to provide the care she needed. But when we found a team of caregivers to provide professional, dignified and reliable services to her, it was a game changer, and allowed the rest of the family to better cope with this tragedy.”
Previously, Shiv owned restaurants in Manhattan, worked in investment banking on Wall Street and was a professional drummer. He graduated from New York University with a degree in Finance and brings over 20 years of entrepreneurial experience.
Shiv is happily married and has a 6 year old daughter and a 6 month old son, and is grateful to have settled down in Florida to raise his family. In his free time he enjoys the outdoors, cooking and music.
