We take personal responsibility for providing the best in-home care and support to meet our clients needs and are committed to addressing the individual and national challenges of Australia's ageing population. 

Our national network of locally owned and operated offices was developed with a passionate desire to be trusted as your in-home care provider of choice, helping keep you or your mother, father, grandparents or friends living happily, healthily, safely and independently at home for as long as possible.

About us

Home Instead Senior Care began from personal experience. Martin and Sarah Warner founded Home Instead in Australia and began supporting seniors in Brisbane, Queensland in 2005.​

It was through their personal experience, caring for their own ageing parents and experiencing a lack of suitable home care and companionship services for them that they realised the need for quality, non-medical, in-home care and companionship services to help seniors live independently at home.​

For over ten years, our CAREGivers have been providing trusted, personal, quality care to enhance the lives of ageing adults and their families in local communities across Australia.

Our history

Home Instead Inc. was founded by Paul and Lori Hogan in Omaha, Nebraska as Home Instead Senior Care in 1994. It was Paul Hogan's own family experience caring for his grandmother for 12 years that made him realise the need for non-medical home care and elder companionship services to help seniors live independently at home.

In June 1995, the company began franchising. By 1998, Home Instead Senior Care had grown to 99 offices and was recognised by Entrepreneur magazine as one of the 100 fastest growing franchise companies in the United States.

In 2000, Home Instead Senior Care began international development with the opening of our first international Home Instead Senior Care franchise in Japan. Today, our family of 16 international franchise partners strive to be the world's trusted source of in-home care and companionship for seniors and their families.
