To Us, It Is Personal® When Paul and Lori Hogan founded Home Instead® more than 25 years ago in Omaha, Nebraska, they created the business to help their ailing matriarch, Grandma Manhart, age well at home and to ease their own family’s caregiving struggles. Where Home Instead All Started Paul and Lori and several dozen family members tried organizing caregiving in shifts to keep Grandma Manhart safe and healthy at home – and to keep her out of a nursing home. Yet even with their family’s considerable manpower, they struggled to consistently meet the needs of their nearly 90-year-old grandmother. They wondered how other families with fewer family members and resources were caring for their aging relatives. And from that question, Home Instead was founded in 1994. Grandma Manhart became Home Instead’s first client, and then something magical happened: After receiving consistent care and getting re-engaged with activities she loved, Grandma Manhart’s health improved. She lived for 11 more years – reaching the age of 100. And those extra years were filled with zest and deeply meaningful family experiences. Through their roles as the company’s first Care Professionals, Paul and Lori developed a deep appreciation for seniors, family members and the Care Pros who continue to provide compassionate care to older adults through Home Instead today. This emotional connection to caregiving infuses the company with a sense of mission – a mission to help every senior live his or her best life, thanks to receiving the support they need when they need it, just like Grandma Manhart did. To us, home care really is personal.
