Whale Watching, Ferry Rides and Other Altered VacationsPoor Mom. I don't think a single family vacation ever went as planned. Like the trip to Prince Rupert to whale watch, which ended up as a trip to the ER when my brother stepped on a nail. Or the ferry ride to Victoria where we first learned that I get seasick easily. And then there was backpacking in Banff National Park. The wildflowers surrounding Lake Louise were so beautiful. How was I to know poison oak was the price I would pay for Mom's bouquet?
What Any Good Mother Would DoI came down with the flu at the "space age" world's fair in Seattle, so Mom spent two days in a motel room, feeding me saltine crackers and reading to me while Dad and the boys rode the monorail and ascended in the "bubbleator" to the "world of tomorrow." Mom and I would just have to wait to see what the future would hold.
Handling Life's Unexpected TurnsMy folks have spent over 50 years in the house in Burnaby, and it's been their pride and joy â€” landscaped to perfection and neat as a pin. But it's different now that Dad's in a wheelchair. Mom has handled the change with her usual grace. She takes care of him, just like she did for us, fixing his favorite meals, lovingly tying his shoes and smoothing his hair ... always followed by a kiss on the forehead. They really want to stay in the house they've shared for so long, but there's so much for mom to do. My brother and I do what we can, but we've got our jobs and she deserves to have some help every day.

Inspired by a Personal ExperienceIt was Paul and Lori Hogan's own personal experience caring for their 100-year-old grandmother in her home that inspired them to launch Home Instead in 1994. They realized many families had the same need for non-medical in-home care and elder companionship that could help seniors live independently at home. The demand for these important services has been so great, that the company's network now has 800 locally owned franchises across North America and around the globe.
