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 a few Storz, I received equal parts teaching and teasing, as I learned to change spark plugs.
There's No Place as Sweet as Home
My albums are filled with photo memories of vacations at Ponca State Park, Dad with a string of rainbow trout at Lake McConaughy, Mom in her Huskers sweatshirt and we kids craning our necks to see Scotts Bluff. But we all agree our favorite memories took place right at home--Saturday afternoons watching Cornhusker football while we downed cabbage burgers and Weaver's potato chips.
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 him the care he deserves so he can stay at home?

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 Senior Care 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.
