Our Foundations

Text Size: Small Text SizeLarge Text Size

Home Instead Senior Care was founded in 1994 in the USA by Paul and Lori Hogan, after they had cared for Paul's grandmother in her own home for several years. With their help, she was able to stay in her own home and lived many years longer than expected. This experience inspired their desire to help other families with ageing loved ones and led to the creation of Home Instead Senior Care.

Sam and Trevor Brocklebank founded Home Instead in the UK for similar reasons to Paul and Lori. Trevor’s family experienced great difficulty finding quality care for his grandfather, they wanted someone to visit Trevor’s grandfather for a few hours a day to provide help with cooking and cleaning, but such care was not available. Sam and Trevor knew there had to be a better way to provide care and brought Home Instead to the UK.

In 2015, after 10 years of growing Home Instead into the UK’s leading quality home care company, Sam and Trevor restored ownership of the UK franchise to Paul and Lori Hogan, to secure the continued growth and success of the organisation.

Today, Home Instead has over 180 locally owned and operated offices across the UK, who together deliver over 5 million hours of care to over 9,000 clients and employing over 8,000 people. To find your local Home Instead office please click here.
