Paul and Lori Hogan

Paul and Lori Hogan founded Home Instead Senior Care® in 1994. Their personal experience helping Paul’s grandmother remain at home, where she enjoyed life past age 100, stirred their passion to enable other families to do the same.

They began by serving a handful of families in Omaha, Nebraska in the United States. But those families were not the only ones who needed assistance to care for aging loved ones who wanted to remain independent at home. Paul and Lori uncovered a worldwide need for in-home care services for the elderly and launched an industry that could help address the global aging challenge.

Today, the Home Instead Senior Care franchise network is the world’s largest provider of home care services for the elderly, with more than 1,100 independently owned and operated offices that provide more than 70 million hours of care annually across 14 countries on four continents.

Local Home Instead Senior Care offices employ more than 80,000 CAREGiversâ„  worldwide, who provide care services that span the care ecosystem – from personal needs care and supporting the Activities of Daily Living to specialized Alzheimer’s and hospice care. These important services enable older people to age safely and comfortably in their own homes for as long as possible.

Global Expansion

Since Home Instead Senior Care began in 1994, we have seen growth that has far exceeded that of any company in the elder care industry. And, we are just getting started.
