Home Instead Senior Care franchise owners possess a
heartfelt desire to work with seniors in their community AND that's the
reason why they were chosen to serve seniors and their families.
When you're ready for help or just have a concern, our caring staff
is available to quickly answer your questions and accommodate your
senior services needs.
Don has been active in the business community since
1975. Don, along with his wife Anita, saw the need for compassionate
senior care in the Okanagan region and when the opportunity arose, they
started a business in Kelowna in 2002. The doors opened May that year in
West Kelowna and then moved to Kelowna in 2005. In 2011, Don and Anita
began providing the same quality service in Penticton. The Kelowna and
Penticton Home Instead Senior Care Office has provided quality
non-medical services to over 1,000 clients since that first day. Don is
involved in all aspects of the business: office administration,
scheduling, meeting people in the community and home visits. He is also a
volunteer leader in the community.
