About Us

Van Lankford, Owner

Van Lankford, Owner

When Van needed help caring for his own father in 2008, he was directed to the Home Instead Senior Care office in his hometown. Home Instead Senior Care gave such excellent care to his father that when the opportunity to open an office in Mount Airy came along he jumped at the chance. Van says, “I personally know what it is like to want the best care for a loved one. I understand the position many children find themselves in when they try to balance caring for a young family with caring for an aging parent. I had such a great experience with Home Instead Senior Care that I want to be able to help people who are in the same situation I was in and offer them the best care for their loved one.”

Van and his wife Ann have two children, Molly and Evan. They are very involved in their church as well as other community activities. Van is also an active member of the Mount Airy Rotary Club.
