Home Instead History & Mission

Helping Senior’s in Etobicoke

We know that caring for an elderly loved one is much more than just helping out. It's about a special partnership in which a senior not only feels cared for, but also loved. Home Instead in Etobicoke is committed to helping our community's seniors, whether it is through companionship, meal preparation, personal care, or assistance with daily living skills. We are passionate about exceeding the needs of our elderly community and are consistently graded highly by our clients and their families for excellent quality care.

Our organization is committed to creating a Perfect Match between our clients and their CAREGiver. All our CAREGivers are required to complete extensive training and attend an on-going educational series. They are continually recognized for their outstanding service.

We deliver, without exception, on every commitment we make to you and your loved ones

No matter whether seniors live, in their own home, in assisted living facilities, or even nursing homes, Home Instead provides extensive senior home care services to the Etobicoke community. In fact, we are regularly referred by St Joseph's Hospital, the Dorothy Ley Hospice, Trillium Hospital, the Alzheimer's Society, as well as numerous retirement and Long Term Care facilities in our community. In addition, in those situations where a client has aging-related medical needs beyond our home care capabilities, we can refer them to our close partners in the health care industry.

We are actively involved with non-profit organizations within our community like the Alzheimer's Society, Dorothy Ley Hospice, Canadian Cancer Society, E.S.S, Islington Seniors Center, as well as others. We're not a giant corporation run from the top down; we're a community-based, friendly, and responsive company right here in Etobicoke.

We're here to help regardless of whether you need a few hours a day or 24-hour continual care. Our services include companionship, meal preparation, personal care, light housekeeping, grocery shopping, errands, doctors appointment escorts, medication reminders, and other daily living activities.

We believe that personally getting to know an elderly person's needs and desires is crucial in developing a successful caregiving experience. Therefore, we offer  a free initial care assessment of a senior's needs in private. What's most important to us is developing a lasting partnership and caring relationship between a senior and their CAREGiver.

To Us, It’s Personal®

Our founders, Paul and Lori Hogan, launched Home Instead in 1994 to provide care to Paul’s 90-year-old grandmother. Remarkably, after she began receiving personalized, in-home care that allowed her to age safely in the place she loved most – the family home – Grandma Manhart thrived for an additional decade!

That’s why, to us, senior care is personal. We’re passionate about expanding the world’s capacity to care.
