Alistair Hicks is the franchise owner of Home Instead Senior Care in Greater Victoria. He has been with Home Instead since 2000 when he helped launch the Home Instead mission - enhancing the lives of aging adults and their families in Osaka Japan. While living & working in Japan, Alistair's mother fell ill & he was unable to spend enough time back in Canada to care for her. From his experience with the remarkable work of Home Instead Senior Care, he knew this was his opportunity to give back in a way similar to the access he had for his own family. "Home Instead is a service that really captured my heart from the very beginning." It is no surprise that he was the first to own a Canadian Home Instead franchise location, which opened in Toronto in 2001. In 2005, Alister settled in Victoria where he opened a Home Instead franchise. Everyday, he applies his wealth of knowledge & expertise in caring for seniors. Alistair has continued his mission to "Change the face of aging". Alistair spends his free time as a loving husband & father of three.
