Chris Lerch, Owner and CEO

Chris Lerch, Owner and CEO

Chris Lerch, owner of Home Instead of San Antonio, gained respect and admiration for seniors through his rich childhood experiences with his grandparents and great-grandparents. His interest in serving seniors is largely due to the lessons he learned from his mother, the original family CAREGiver.

When asked about the mission of his Home Instead franchise, Chris states, "At Home Instead we work hard to help families cope with the challenges of aging at home. In the spirit of my mother, the 'original CAREGiver'. Home Instead of San Antonio strives to ease the burden of aging in place so that families can focus on enjoying their cherished seniors."

A native of Indiana, Chris and his wife, Shelley, have now lived in Texas for many years. They have 2 children and enjoy spending time together as a family.
