About Us

Meet Our Team

Dinah Pickett

Dinah Pickett, Owner

Dinah and her daughter started Home Instead® of Hollywood in 2012. Originally from Indiana they were excited to live near the beach and develop a business where many seniors wish to retire. There is a vibrant life for seniors in South Florida and Dinah knows there is a need for support to keep them independent and thriving in their own homes.

Just as all our clients do, Dinah has a long career history. She spent 23 years building power plants as an engineer. After a short retirement, Dinah chose Home Instead because she cared for her own mother as a single parent and related to the challenges that families are facing today. As her mother, June grew older, she lost three of her four adult children. As June's youngest daughter, Dinah supported her mother through the losses and helped her age with dignity. Being the only caregiver to her mother was difficult. As Dinah reflects on her past, if she had known of a service like Home Instead Senior Care, she would have been able to create more balance between being her mother's caregiver and spending time with her as just her daughter.

As the owner of Home Instead®, Dinah is proud to be the face of the company and the one to meet with each family she serves. She stands by her mission, to provide a service to the seniors that is centered around strong relationship values and to develop compassionate employees that will become dependable resources for the families that we serve.

Dinah is a dynamic community leader and provides education to Broward county as an expert in senior care and aging in place. As a board member for both the Hollywood Women's Club and Pinion, Inc, she supports local philanthropy and creates positive change.
