​An experience with my parents inspired me to bring this service to Cape Breton. Understanding that caring for a loved one can be a stressful experience, we are here to help.

Spending 10 years working in the Diabetes industry with Johnson and Johnson gave me the opportunity to work with great health care professionals and meet some inspiring individuals. This experience helped me to recognize the challenges families face as we age. I decided to open a Home Instead Senior Care franchise because I want to make a difference in our community. My goal is to be a community resource and help people remain safe and comfortable in the place they call HOME.
 
My wife Susan and I both grew up in the area and after 10 years in Halifax, we are thrilled to be back in Cape Breton. We are excited to be close to our parents and feel there is no better place to raise Luke and Anna.

Michelle MacNeil - Office Coordinator

After a 30 year career as an Residential Rehabilitation Worker and Program Coordinator in the Residential Care Service, I retired and took the next couple of years re-connecting with family & friends and volunteering in my community. My mother was experiencing memory issues around the same time which eventually led to a diagnosis of Alzheimer’s.  My research into services and information led me to the Home Instead website and eventually to meeting Chris.  I began working part-time as a Caregiver which allowed me to spend a lot of time with my mom while she struggled with this terrible disease.  I eventually took on the role of Office Coordinator.  Working with this amazing team has opened my eyes to our senior’s struggles with staying in their homes, trying to maintain their independence while dealing with health issues associated with aging.  While my mom succumbed to the disease after 7 years, my journey has given new insights into the possibilities for improvements in Senior Care services and the importance that should be placed on enhancing the lives of our most prized possessions…the elderly.
