Darrell Doane, Franchise Owner

Darrell Doane, Franchise Owner

In 1996, after a long history in marketing with medical companies, Darrell and his wife Susan decided to purchase the local Home Instead franchise. Darrell's success has been chronicled over the years with several industry and franchise awards, but in the midst of such accolades, his top priority has always been giving back to the community. This genuine compassion for the well-being of others is especially evident in the time he and Susan contribute to the local Boys and Girls Club, and the American Heart Association. Today, this franchise includes Home Instead offices in Memphis (TN), Southaven (MS), and Oxford (MS).​​

Home Instead is personal to me because one day we will ALL need help aging gracefully. Caring for seniors in the last stage of their life has changed my every day outlook/attitude (teaching me wisdom, grace, fortitude, and time is our most valuable possession) while teaching me the epitome of the Golden Rule! Growing up my oncology nurse mother was my hero! She taught us to have a heart for people and gave us the tools (education/training) to help those who cannot help themselves. My goal for Home Instead is to be known as the agency that provides senior care with excellence (as caring for our own parents and grandparents). The biggest lesson learned over the last ten years in home care – it is a blessing to be a blessing!

“I alone cannot change the world, but I can cast a stone across the waters to create many ripples.” – Mother Teresa

Clare Evans, Director of Human Resources & Training

Home Instead is personal to me because at an early age I cared for my mother and once I realized God gave me a caring heart and healing hands I knew I wanted to share those gifts with others. It is an honor to take care of seniors and I know a time might come when I will depend on others for the same. I was raised to respect seniors and every day I strive to do that with honor and devotion, and working for Home Instead gives me that opportunity.

Home Instead is personal to me because I always wanted to help disabled and elderly people. I grew up taking care of my grandmother who was disabled, and elderly and I saw how it can affect the family also. My position at Home Instead is not hands-on but administrative work. As an Administrator, I can still make their lives easier by taking care of their home health paperwork to ensure they receive their services as needed. I am willing to be their Administrative Advocate, so they know someone cares about even the smallest details of their home health care.

Phillip Kennedy, Director of Marketing & Client Services

Home Instead is personal to me because we are in the business of helping people. This company embodies my favorite Latin phrase "ad meliorem vitam aliorum " which means " to improve the lives of others." The team here goes above and beyond trying to provide the best support that we can to the people we serve. Coming from a family of caregivers, I am very thankful to be a part of a team that genuinely cares about the communities we serve.

Rachelle Edwards, Home Care Consultant

Home Instead is personal to me having been a family caregiver for most of my life. I understand and can relate to the challenges faced by so many families. Belonging to a family of caregivers has prepared me for helping to meet the needs of those we serve; and it is such a blessing to be a part of the Home Instead family. I believe there is no greater nor more important job than caring for those who can't care for themselves.

Home Instead is personal to me because we provide services for Seniors who need special attention. Home Instead is a heart-based company, what I mean is Home Instead is a company with a heart full of love and compassion, going above and beyond, providing a high quality of services to the senior community.

While in my teens, my mother would take me to sit with Seniors in our community where I developed a heart filled with compassion for the elderly. I am proud to serve with a company who values and honor the Senior Communities. We are more than just a team at Home Instead, we are a FAMILY.

Home instead is personal to me because in this life you get out what you put in. Every religion disagrees about different things but one thing every religion has in common is the golden rule, “Treat others as you want to be treated.” Everyday it’s personal to me because by helping others, no matter if its seniors or our awesome team of caregivers, we are making a positive impact in the world one life at a time. Everyday I have to privilege to sow the seeds of care and watch our caregivers water the seed and see our seniors reap the harvest of care.
