A Do-It-Yourself Dad

I don't remember mom and dad ever hiring a handyman, or plumber or electrician. It seemed like Dad could do anything. Car repairs? No mechanic needed. If there was anything my father couldn't figure out on his own, he called up his brothers. While the uncles huddled under the hood of the Chevy, sharing stories and Grain Belt beers, I received equal parts teaching and teasing, as I learned to change spark plugs.

Dealing with Change

We've all moved away and Dad's brothers are gone now. And since Mom died last year, we've all been worried about Dad. He wants to stay in that great old house with all the wonderful memories, but our do-it-yourselfer needs some assistance himself. He seems forgetful lately, and we're not sure he's eating right. He's been such a giving person. How can we get himthe care he deserves so he can stay at home?

Help Him Stay Independent With Home Instead®

When family members or friends aren't able to help the older adults they love, Home Instead Care Professionals can. With a network of locations across Iowa, and worldwide, Home Instead is all about taking care of older family members long-term in the homes they've enjoyed and treasured. We provide a range of services including companionship, meal preparation, light housekeeping, medication reminders, shopping, errands--everything you'd do for your loved one, and more--to give you peace of mind, whether you live several states away or in the next county.

Inspired by a Personal Experience

It 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.

Reliable, Dependable Services Around-the-Clock

Our responsible, experienced Care Pros are members of the local community, familiar with the resources available in your area of Iowa. Home Instead services are available 24/7, every day of the year, including holidays, and are delivered by trusted Care Pros who are screened, bonded and insured employees--never independent contractors.

Free Consultation. Trusted Advice.

Your Home Instead representative can help you decide if our services could assist your loved one in preserving a good quality of life and remaining safely in his or her home. When you request home care a representative will contact you within 24 hours and you'll receive a free, no-obligation personal consultation.
