House Parties and the Modern 1960's Woman

People always thought Aunt Rachel was my mother, and I was delighted to be compared to this fashionable, fun-loving woman. Her career woman's life as a secretary seemed so sophisticated, with her own split-level house in Chevy Chase. Neighborhood parties were sure to include someone who worked for a senator or congressman. We kids hung, entranced, at the top of the stairs, while the adults danced to Bobby Darin and the Everly Brothers in the basement rumpus room.

A Stylish Life

Overnight visits to Aunt Rachel's were always exciting—taking in a play at the National Theatre or having my first pizza at Luigi's. She would paint my nails and take me shopping at Lord & Taylor. She taught me to always act like a lady. Her encouragement and influence helped me become the first college grad in the family.

Dealing with Change

Because she's been like a second mom to me, I visit Aunt Rachel as often as I can. She's still as vibrant as can be in mind and spirit, but some physical challenges are making daily activities harder for her. It's very important to her to keep her home and her independent outlook, and it breaks my heart that I can't be there everyday.


Help Her Keep Her Lifestyle with Home Instead Senior Care®

When family members or friends aren't able to help the older adults they love, Home Instead CAREGiversSM can. With a network of locations across Washington, D.C., and worldwide, Home Instead Senior Care 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 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. 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.
