I​​n-Home Care for Senior
Alan Van Sickle – Owner and Managing Director

Witnessing the needs and challenges of various family members helped inspire me to bring Home Instead Senior Care to Brantford and surrounding areas. Seeing that caring for a loved one can be a tremendous task, we are proud to be here to help.

I spent 15 years working in the software development industry in various capacities including project management and senior advisory consulting. I had the opportunity to work with some great clients. What stuck with me during this time was what always mattered most was determining the needs of the people. It was during my 9 years as a consultant at Investors Group Financial Services that I saw the growth of the aging population and the demand for caring and trusted professionals to meet their needs. To better understand the needs and challenges of seniors, I obtained my Certified Professional Consultant on Aging (CPCA)® designation through the Age-Friendly Business® organization. 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 stay where they are most comfortable….HOME INSTEAD!.

I have spent my entire life living in Brantford and Mount Pleasant.  My wife Lisa has lived her entire life in the lovely village of Mount Pleasant. We are nearby all family members and this is why we have chosen to stay in this area to raise our three daughters, Kaylyn, Alyssa, and Sophie.

Home Instead, Inc. demonstrates commitment to quality care through our proprietary PEAQ program – Pursuing Excellence by Advancing Quality. In fact, we commissioned J.D. Power and Associates to routinely survey CAREGivers and clients to ensure consistent delivery of high-quality service.​
