OWENSBORO, Ky. (4/30/14) — A passion for caring for the elderly that developed from his own personal experiences in providing care for his grandmother and his wife’s grandparents was the driving force behind Stephen Bryson’s vision to open a business that offers that service to the public.

In a venture that started three and a half years ago, Bryson said Home Instead Senior Care has helped approximately 1,000 seniors with services such as buying groceries, personal care needs like bathing meal preparation and other assistance as needed.

Previously located behind Century 21 on Frederica Street, the business moved into a larger office a little further south on Frederica Street, (4026 Frederica St. is the new address). Bryson said the decision was motivated by the need for more offices, as the business had outgrown the available space in its previous location.

Bryson credited his team of employees for the business’ success. He currently employs roughly 150 people within the Owensboro and Henderson coverage area, some of which work part-time. He said the employees have helped make his dream of caring for seniors come true.

“My family needed home care and my wife’s family needed home care 20 years ago,” he said. “We didn’t have this then so it was difficult.”

Bryson said utilizing his office for services provides families a level of care they might not find on their own.

“The most significant part (of our business) is how we hire, screen, and train our caregivers,” he said, adding that people who search classified ads for someone offering similar services “don’t really know who you’re going to get.”

“We do hands-on assessment,” he said. “We do motor vehicle checks. We do criminal background checks.”
