There’s now an alternative to institutional care for seniors: Home Instead Senior Care.

“We provide in-home care allowing our clients to remain at home and independent,” said Jessica Jacob, office manager for the firm that is part of a nationwide family network of locally owned franchise offices developed to provide trusted in-home care.

Jacob said Home Instead goes into client’s homes and assists people with all their non-medical needs. That assistance includes trips to the doctor, reminders to take the right medication at the right time, meal preparation, light housekeeping, errands, shopping and even Alzheimer’s and dementia care.

The type, and degree, of care is geared to the individual.

“We can be there 24 hours a day or just a few hours a day to provide some basic need,” Jacob noted. “We customize the program depending on each senior’s needs.”

Home Instead has a growing client list presently numbering about 60. The company offers different payment options depending upon on the type of care rendered.

“Not only do we help them maintain their daily needs, but we help individuals with their personal needs,” said Jacob. “We provide a 24-hour service, a bathing service, a wake-up and tuck-in service. The price depends on what that individual needs.”

Home Instead Senior Care is currently providing millions of hours of senior services annually through a network of 800 franchise offices throughout the United States, Canada, Ireland, United Kingdom, Portugal, Switzerland, Japan, Taiwan, Australia, New Zealand, Germany, South Korea, Finland and Austria.

Home Instead is part of the American Board of Home Care and is also affiliated with the Alzheimer’s Association, the Parkinson’s Association and the County of San Diego Health & Human Services Agency.
