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 I have a passion for helping seniors. Before my mother-in-law and both of my parents passed, I was able to see the impact that home care had on their lives and how it kept them at home where they wanted to be. I believe that often times a smile and an encouraging word is enough to brighten the day of a senior who is struggling with health or other personal issues. My goal for Home Instead is to be known as the local resource for senior care and I have lofty goals as I help lead a great company into a realm of healthcare changes.

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!

Clare Evans, HR Director

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 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.
