Three Decades of Home Instead's Experience

Paul and Lori Hogan founded Home Instead® in 1994 with one goal in mind: provide compassionate care to ageing adults from the comfort of their own home. Their personal experience helping Paul’s grandmother, Eleanor, receive in-home care stirred their passion to enable other families to do the same. Since then, Home Instead has uncovered a worldwide need for in-home care services for the elderly and launched an industry that could help address the global ageing challenge.

In August 2021, we joined forces with Honor, the leading home care service company providing the most human-centric technology and operations platform. 

Honor was born out of the founders’, Seth Sternberg’s,  desire to make an impact in the world.  Seth visited home and saw that his mother was starting to slow down, he brought this idea of caring for parents, something that touches all of us at some point in our lives, to his co-founders. Sandy Jen—his former co-founder at Meebo (a messaging platform that they sold to Google)—Monica Lo, and Cameron Ring.  They all agreed that this was a challenge they needed to take on. Since 2014, Honor has scaled a home care agency, built a national network of agencies, and developed a technology platform to strengthen the relationship between care professional and client. All to deliver a better, more connected care experience.
