About Paul & Lori Hogan
Paul and Lori Hogan bring a wealth of senior care experience to Stages of Senior Care. Since they founded Home Instead Senior Care in 1994, the company has grown into the largest senior care business of its kind in the world. In 18 years, it has provided services to nearly one million seniors through a network of over 900 franchise offices located in the U.S., Puerto Rico and 15 other countries. Each year, Home Instead provides more than 45 million hours of care to seniors around the world.
Paul is a 1985 graduate of the University of Nebraska at Lincoln. He serves as a founding board member of The Home Instead Senior Care Foundation and the National Private Duty Association, and a founding member of the Nebraska chapter of the Young Entrepreneur Organization. He also serves on the board of Family First Nebraska. In recognition of his contribution to franchising, he was named the Entrepreneur of the Year for 2006 by the International Franchise Association.
Lori, a University of Nebraska at Omaha graduate and former Miss Nebraska USA, serves on the boards of the Omaha Chamber of Commerce, Family First Nebraska and The Home Instead Senior Care Foundation. She plays a pivotal role at Home Instead Senior Care as she inspires franchise owners and CAREGiversSM.
Lori has also written an inspiring new book called Strength for the Moment to affirm and encourage caregivers in their labor of love. Strength for the Moment includes personal caregiver stories shared by people in or close to the Home Instead Senior Care network, prayers, Bible Scriptures, caregiver quotes and a touch of humor to uplift readers’ spirits and help them find strength for their caregiving journey.
For their success in exporting their home care business concept throughout the world, the Hogans were awarded the “E” Award by the Department of Commerce in May 2008. This award is one of the highest honors the federal government presents to individuals, firms or organizations that have made a significant contribution to American exports. It was presented at a White House ceremony.
Demonstrating their commitment to enhancing the lives of seniors everywhere, the Hogans became anchor donors for the Home Instead Center for Successful Aging in January 2008. This unique partnership between the University of Nebraska Medical Center and Home Instead Senior Care is focused on a common goal: To find solutions with the potential to touch the lives of thousands or even millions of seniors around the world, and to truly help seniors age more successfully.
The Hogans’ profits from the sale of this book will be donated to the Home Instead Senior Care Foundation.
