Theirs are among the top three largest of the Home Instead Senior Care operations, which consist of over 1,100 offices in 12 countries.

Looking for an opportunity to work together and own their own business, Dave and Malorie decided to combine their specific areas of expertise in the growing healthcare field. The Hills were impressed with the professionalism and sincerity exhibited by the Home Instead Senior Care corporate staff in Omaha, Nebraska. Thus began what has turned out to be a truly rewarding adventure of developing into one of the top three owner/operators of Home Instead Senior Care's network of franchise business owners.

"We loved the idea of expanding our quality-first home care business to the state where we spent over 40 years of our lives".

Once again, the opportunity to grow Home Instead remarkable services presented itself in 2019 and the Hills added the Savannah GA territory which included Hilton Head SC and neighboring communities in Beaufort and Jasper Counties.
