A Business Born from Personal Experience

Paul and Lori Hogan’s personal experience caring for his grandmother for 12 years inspired them to launch Home Instead Senior Care in 1994. The company began franchising in 1995, and by 1998, the Home Instead Senior Care network had grown to 99 franchises and was recognized by Entrepreneur magazine as one of the 100 fastest growing franchise systems in the United States.

In 2000, Home Instead Senior Care began international development with the opening of a Master Franchise in Osaka, Japan. Today, the franchise network has offices throughout the United States, Canada, Japan, Portugal, Australia, Ireland, New Zealand, Taiwan, Spain, Switzerland, the United Kingdom, Germany, South Korea, Finland and Austria.

In 2003, the Home Instead Senior Care Foundation was created with the philanthropic mission of providing financial assistance to non-profit organizations whose projects aim to improve quality of life for seniors.

Owner Testimonials

Read What Some of Our Franchise Owners Have to Say About Their Experience

A Nurse Finds Autonomy and Benevolence
"Previously, I had an excellent job as a nurse and, even today, I could get a job in the field anywhere and anytime I want. But professionally, I'm looking for autonomy — the ability to make my own decisions. With Home Instead Senior Care, you can do that with the support of the Home Office, whose staff members will help you build your franchise.

“Home Instead Senior Care's business model is tried, tested, and reproducible — something that's been continuously modified and refined through the years. So you can believe in it; you know there are more than 500 franchise owners in the U.S. who have helped make the network so successful. For me, the reward personally and professionally is that I can say to myself, 'I did this, and I made a difference in my community.'"
— Fran F., New Jersey, U.S.

Measuring Success in Heartfelt Thanks
"I always had a dream of owning my business. I wanted a business where I could truly measure the difference I made in peoples' lives, while financially providing for my family. After researching many business opportunities, it was clear that Home Instead Senior Care was the perfect fit for me. When I was awarded a franchise, they gave me the marketing tools and support I needed to make my business a success. When a client gives heartfelt thanks for the care they received from our CAREGivers, it reinforces that I made the right decision."
— Janice S., Toronto, Canada

Making a Living… and a Difference
"If you're going to take a business risk, going after a franchise is a good way to go —especially a Home Instead Senior Care franchise, since the support you get from the home office is phenomenal. It gives you an opportunity to run your own business, making a good living while helping seniors. It also allows you to make a difference in your employees' lives, since many good CAREGivers have come from other professions that maybe they didn't enjoy working in nearly as much. So take the risk. You'll always be sorry if you don't try, especially with Home Instead Senior Care."
— Tina and Tom R. Michigan, U.S.

Turning a Passion Into a Career
"I have always felt blessed by the relationship I had as a child with my grandmother. From this relationship grew a love and desire to serve seniors. Through Home Instead Senior Care, I have been blessed to fulfill my passion and focus to serve seniors. From the day I started with Home Instead Senior Care, I felt this is where I am supposed to be."
— Cathy B., Ontario, Canada

Fulfilling Financial Goals and Dreams
"My Home Instead Senior Care business is just growing and growing, so I'm increasingly able to support my family, plan for the future, and realize my financial goals and dreams … more than I ever anticipated. As we all know, the reason it's such a great business is that the demographics are creating such a huge need for services throughout the U.S.; there are just so many seniors who need assistance.

“A Home Instead Senior Care franchise is the right senior care choice because you'll be dealing with an incredibly professional organization that has the word 'caring' right at the top of its mission statement … one that always provides phenomenal support to its business owners. There is a world of difference between Home Instead Senior Care and its competition. When you're out in the community representing the organization, you need a big name like Home Instead Senior Care behind you — one that people recognize immediately. It'll make you feel good at the end of the day to know that your Home Instead Senior Care franchise is doing good things in the community; you'll soon realize you're in the right business."
— Jim L., Pennsylvania, U.S.
