A Passion for Serving Seniors and their Families

I am often asked "Why did you bring Home Instead Senior Care to Calgary?"

My wife Debbie was working for Alberta Health Services as a Home Care Case Manager RN. One day she came home from work tearful. She explained to me that she felt totally frustrated because of the AHS policies regarding public home care. Debbie said, "I became a Nurse to help people, today I couldn't do my job!" "For the seniors I could give home care services to, it wasn't going to be enough to really help them, and to the seniors I couldn't give services to, anything would've helped them. The system is broken and there are too many gaps that people are falling through. We need to do something to help seniors and their families".

That conversation changed us. We explored the world of private care options and quickly learned that there are many different levels of care and quality being delivered. We wanted to offer Senior Care, not general care, and we wanted to deliver care in a way that made a difference, not only to the seniors but to their families too.

Our journey began quietly in September of 2009, and today we support and serve hundreds of clients and their families wherever they call "home".  Today Debbie can say "yes" to families instead of "no". Today, Home Instead Senior Care is able to work collaboratively with whatever the care needs of our clients are, because we have a client needs driven philosophy, not a public health ideology. Better senior outcomes happen because Home Instead Senior Care is offering a different model of care, specific to the needs of one group, Seniors.

Trusted Senior Home Care Since 1994

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. That mission still drives the company and its franchise network today.

Home Instead, Inc. began franchising in 1995. Today, the Home Instead Senior Care network has grown to include more than 1,000 franchises around the world -- including this office in Calgary, AB. While our franchise network is international, our office is local. And to us, senior home care is personal.​
