We are a family owned and operated franchise run by the Barth family. Daughter Danielle is Director of Client Care and a Clinical Licensed Social Worker. Son Jerimiah Barth also works with the firm.

How Does Your Business Stand Out In The Industry?

There are over 1100 Home Instead Franchise Office in the North American Continent. We are on four continents, 14 Countries. There are 5 Home Instead Senior Care Franchises in the Greater Portland Area.

Our Franchise provides services to seniors and their families in the Yamhill. Western Washington and Columbia Counties. We have over 220 CAREGivers, all are employees. If the CAREGiver meets certain parameters they can qualify for a full benefit package, including health care and 401K program.

The premise of our name is exactly what it says, our desire is to help seniors stay Home Instead of going to a nursing home or some other location against their will.

Our Care Team is made of either Clinical or Masters of Social Workers. This allows for our Home Instead Team to provide a holistic approach to the senior and their family. Our office has the capacity to provide complementary assessment on the weekends and our on-call service is manned by our employees throughout the night.

What our Customers Say:

We have a wonderful senior gentleman that is a stained glass artist. He has been active in his craft for over 60 years of his life and is currently 96 years old. Our CAREGiver has been with him for over two years. She helps him with his daily living needs, but also helps him continue to thrive with his career as an artist. He no longer can do the very small details of his work, so he has taught her his trade and she is able to be the eyes and hands to accomplish the small details of his work. He still sells his work at various Farmers Markets and Craft shows. Home Instead Senior Care and their CAREGiver has helped this gentleman thrive at a time when most at 96 are giving up. That’s what we are all about. Helping our Seniors Thrive in life and Age in place.

Are There Any Misconceptions About Your Service?

Elder Seniors sometimes think that they will lose their independence if they have a caregiver come into their home. That could not be further from the truth. We are there to assist them with activities that they either don’t want to do any longer or cannot do. Either way we provide an option to create more freedom and independence.

Please Share Any Challenges Involved in Operating Your Business.

Life is always interesting when you are working with seniors. They always have a knowledge of the past that enriches your life. Times have greatly changed for them and they have seen, heard and experienced life in a way no one currently could understand. Unless you go camping, you can’t understand not having a bathroom in your house or having been through WWII and seeing the sights they saw. Now with the Boomers aging, we have Veterans that are bringing new mental health issues into the mix. It no longer is just about aging in place, it is complex. For this reason, our organization has hired Social Workers that are trained and prepared to work this these kinds of complex issues. It is a privilege and honor to serve the seniors in our community.
