Expanding the World’s Capacity to Care℠
Home Instead Senior Care® envisions a world where all older adults can age with greater hope and success. We initiated the Changing the Face of Aging® movement to inspire the world to adopt a more optimistic perspective on aging.
The old face of aging was the fear of getting old.
The new face is hope and promise.
The old face of aging was loneliness and isolation.
The new face is companionship.
The old face of aging was institutionalization.
The new face is home.

Daily we see the struggles aging seniors and their families face and we feel a sense of responsibility to be a leading force uniting the public, private and social sectors to help solve the challenges of our aging global society.
