Life has many challenges and as we age many of us have a goal for our loved ones and ourselves to age carefully in our own homes. Paul and Lori Hogan founded Home Instead, Inc. in 1994 in Omaha, Nebraska. Paul's own family experience caring for his grandmother led him to realize many families could use the help of an in-home caregiver. He and Lori set about creating a company to help seniors to live independently at home. The very caring mission that started Home Instead twenty-one years ago still drives the company and its franchise network today. My guest, Nicole Pearch, community liaison for Home Instead Senior Care in Oakwood Village, OH will provide insight on all of their services including how to pay for non-medial home care and will also give an overview of the more than 1,000 franchises around the world plus how to connect with them for senior home care on a very personal level.
