Carla is a busy executive who travels for work and also cares for her 82-year old mother, who is battling cancer. “I love living with her, but it’s been tough,” says Carla, who constantly worries about her mom when she’s on the road. “Knowing that I could count on someone to care for my mom when I’m away would be life-changing for me and my family.”

Lakelyn Hogan, a gerontologist and spokesperson for Home Instead, says the company, which provides at-home services, including personal care, hospice support, specialized Alzheimer’s care, and more – can help.

“Our goal is to give people, like you, Carla, a much-deserved break and peace of mind knowing that your mom is well cared for,” she says.

Home Instead provides support for older adults and their caregivers in all 50 states, across Canada, and select countries around the globe. If you’re looking for assistance caring for an aging loved one, visit
