A business that cares

Since Home Instead’s formation in 1994, our aim has always been to enhance the lives of ageing adults and their families by delivering the best quality home care possible

Giving older people a positive ageing experience in their own homes

To achieve this, we bring together the social care, public, and private sectors in a bid to solve the challenges of an ageing society. With our knowledge and experience, we’ve become experts in the care of seniors, and how to support them and their families at home.

Home Instead was born in 1994, after founders Paul and Lori Hogan experienced the problems that dozens of other families faced, while trying to keep their 89-year-old grandmother safe and healthy at home. They wondered how other families with fewer members and resources were coping with caring for elderly relatives. Paul’s grandmother became Home Instead’s first client.

The company has since grown to become the world’s largest global home care network, supporting over 100,000 seniors. We’re committed to creating a world in which we’re all happy to grow older, and our personalised, tailored care is helping us achieve that. In 2021, we were acquired by Honor.

Joining forces to make an even greater impact

In August 2021, Honor acquired Home Instead, which immediately became Honor’s flagship brand for the highest quality, relationship-led style of home care. Together, Honor and Home Instead are poised to move forward and transform the ways in which society cares for older adults.

By joining forces, Home Instead and Honor have created a global company that combines high-tech knowledge with high-touch expertise, with the ambition of expanding the world’s capacity to care. Drawing on our complementary areas of experience, we’ll dramatically increase innovation for the benefit of our Care Professionals and their clients around the world. Every day, we move further forward towards achieving this aim.
