Wynn & Amy Esterline, Franchise Owners

Our Home Instead Senior Care story began many years ago. I, Wynn, was searching for something meaningful, a career and journey that I was passionate about. In the late 90’s my parents were caring for Great Aunt Helena. She lived in Monroe, Michigan and my parents were living in Manitou Beach, Michigan. It was a round trip of over two hours. Living with Parkinson’s disease she was only interested in living out the rest of her life in her home residence of more than forty years. It was difficult managing and supporting her wishes, like many families face. My parents were able to help her carry out her wishes. With this experience we knew that Helena wasn’t the only one that could use some extra assistance helping her remain safe and independent in her home. We spent more than a year researching Senior Care and Home Care. We found that the Home Instead Senior Care franchise network was the best option for us and the community that we serve. We have dedicated our life and the last ten years to helping clients and families just like ours.
