High Desert Daily
(Victorville) On Thursday evening, many gathered at the Home Instead Senior Care office on Amargosa Road in Victorville to celebrate the ten-year anniversary for the franchise in the High Desert.
“We hosted a chamber event today so that we can celebrate our ten year anniversary and have a mixer with a purpose,” said Owner Brandi Johnson.
Officials, Representatives, Chamber of Commerce members and community members as a whole all gathered to celebrate the organization and all the wonderful service they have provided to the desert community. Home Instead Senior Care was founded 16 years ago in Nebraska, and has been making an impact on the lives of seniors across the globe ever since.
Home Instead provides home care services directly into the homes of seniors. Services include reminders to take the right medication at the right time, meal preparation, light housekeeping, errands, shopping and more. Many are unaware of the services provided, explained Johnson.
“A lot of people don’t know that this type of service exists. They know about nursing homes and assisted living, but they don’t necessarily know that they can get care in their own home. It’s something we are always educating people about. We also have a lot of educational seminars and workshops here at our office for family care.”
There are over 900 Home Instead offices in 16 countries, massive growth for an organization that is only 16 years old. The chamber mixer/celebration had guest speakers, including Johnson who spoke of the company’s roots and growth. An important topic that Johnson spoke to this reporter about was employment.
“We’re always hiring, so if there are people that want to be a care giver they can apply online or at the office.”
Home Instead is also prepping to kick off their annual Santa to a Senior program, which starts in November. Once we have more information on the program and exact start dates, we will bring it to you right here at High Desert Daily.
