Home Instead Senior Care in the Lake Norman Area

Lake Norman’s Choice for In-Home Senior Care

One of my passions is to help seniors and those with senior parents in the Lake Norman area. In one of the Lake Norman area groups I participate, there is a very active group that work with Home Instead Senior Care.  These are very passionate and caring individuals that  I genuinely endorse.

Home Instead Senior Care is the largest in-home care company in the country. The Lake Norman area local franchise is owned by Iredell County natives Creighton and Tracey Gibson. Their staff of over 150 caregivers are bonded, insured, and also screened thoroughly (including criminal background check, and all are subject to random drug testing).

The Alzheimer’s and dementia training program for our caregiver staff is nationally acclaimed.

Home Instead Senior Care can offer as little as 3 hours one day a week, up to full-time 24/7 care every day including holidays. They can accept Medicaid (not Medicare), specialty long term care insurance, VA benefits, as well as private pay. They can begin service within 48 hours of notification. Below is a listing of some of their services. The standard private pay service cost is $15.50 per hour. Personal care and housekeeping services are more (up to $17.00 per hour). They do offer a substantial discount for overnight and 24 hour service.
