Business of the Month November 2012 – Home Instead Senior Care

Home InsteadHome Instead Senior Care is a non medical provider of home care services to older people and people recovering from illness, accident or surgery.  The services offered include personal assistance with showering and dressing, shopping, meal preparation, laundry, light housekeeping, socialisation, transport to and from appointments, respite care and dementia care.
