Paul and Sherry Dziuba, Co-Franchise Owners

Paul and Sherry Dziuban, Franchise Owners of Home Instead Senior Care of Southwest Riverside County, North San Diego County and Honolulu have always had a passion for helping people. Part of this passion stemmed from Sherry visiting her grandfather in a nursing home which was an eye-opening experience.

While the deterioration of her grandfather's health required full-time care in a nursing home, many of the other residents of the center where her grandfather lived seemed out of place. They could easily have lived on their own - with just a little extra help.

Paul and Sherry vowed to help people like these avoid the confines of a nursing home. They found a way by opening a franchise of Home Instead Senior Care.

Learn how Paul and Sherry can help you find the senior in-home care your family needs in Honolulu, HI.

As a southern gal from a small town in North Carolina, my background consisted of spending quality time with my parents and five siblings, and this has shaped how I conduct business in the office. When I meet with clients for the first time, I think of my family and the type of care they would not only want but the care they deserve. This influences how I approach all situations no matter good or bad. Each day as I leave the office, I am forever blessed to know I have made a difference in someone’s life. As Manager for Home Instead, my goal is to inspire and encourage those who I encounter every day.”
