About Us

Meet Our Team

David Wert - Franchise Owner

David Wert, Franchise Owner

David is originally from Stamford, CT. He went to Boston College and fell in love with the Boston area very quickly. As soon as he met a Home Instead Franchisee from Michigan in 2006 he knew this was a great service for families with aging relatives and that it was the right business for him. He is responsible for making sure that families that use Home Instead get the nicest caregivers of any agency around. His secret is that he and his staff spend a lot of time meeting potential caregivers each week so that they can select only the cream of the crop. He always says: "if we have great caregivers this is an easy business to run. If we don't it makes for a rough ride." That is why we spend so much time making sure we get the staffing end perfect. His goal each day is to hire the best caregivers in the Boston area and personally match them with nice clients. Check out our client testimonials to see what clients are saying about our caregivers. David lives in downtown Boston with his wife and two children.
