About The Foundation

Our History

Since its founding in 2003, Home Instead Senior Care Foundation has been helping less fortunate and vulnerable aging adults.  The Foundation has invested nearly $2 million in nonprofit organizations serving seniors throughout the United States and Canada.  The mission of the Foundation is to enhance the lives of aging adults and those who care for them.  This mission is made possible, in part, thanks to Home Instead, Inc. as well as generous sponsors and donations from the general public.

Our Founders

Lori and Paul R. Hogan founded Home Instead Senior Care®; in 1994. Their experiences caring for Paul’s grandmother were the inspiration that launched an international company of independently owned and operated franchises to provide in-home non-medical care for seniors.  Paul and Lori established the Home Instead Senior Care Foundation as a way to help care for those seniors who were in need of social service programs intended to enhance the quality of life for a senior or a family caregiver.
