Our Team

It All Started In July of 1996

By Ken Stavas, Home Instead Senior Care Owner

We know that caring for an elderly loved one is much more then just helping out.  It's about a special partnership in which a senior not only feels cared for, but also loved. We are passionate about exceeding the needs of our clients and their families whether it is in their home, in assisted living facilities or even nursing homes, Home Instead Senior Care provides extensive senior home care services to the Greater Northwest Atlanta community.

We are here to help regardless of whether you need a few hours a day or 24-hour continual care.  Our services include companionship, meal preparation, showering/bathing and personal care assistance, light housekeeping, grocery shopping, errands, medication reminders, and other daily living activities.

We have been providing services in the Atlanta area for over 15 years and are actively involved with nonprofit organizations within our community.  We are not a giant corporation run from the top down; we pride ourselves on being a community-based, friendly, and responsive company.  You can call and talk to anyone you wish anytime you wish.

Our goal has always been to provide the highest-quality care in the industry, our office staff shares the same vision of being your trusted partner in care. Home Instead Senior Care believes in demonstrating a real commitment to caring for seniors and derives personal satisfaction by responding to this critical need that is growing so rapidly.

Our CAREGiversSM Are at the Heart of It All

Our CAREGivers are residents of the local area who are carefully screened, fully bonded and insured. Each takes part in our exclusive multi-phase training and we place a high priority on matching our CAREGivers with our clients to help develop a bond that will foster independence, promote well being and support the seniorís needs with respect and dignity.

  • To honor God in all we do.

  • To treat each other with dignity and respect.

  • To encourage growth in ourselves and others.
