History of Home Instead Senior Care Services of Georgia

It Began from Personal Experience

Ken Stavas, longtime resident of Acworth/Kennesaw with deep roots in the community, opened the Kennesaw Home Instead Senior Care office in 1996. His work, and his passion for the senior population here, made him realize the need for non-medical home care and elder companionship services to help seniors live independently at home.

Fulfilling a Growing Need as Our Population Ages

In June 1995, the Home Instead Senior Care corporate headquarters began franchising. By 1998, Home Instead Senior Care had grown to 99 offices and was recognized by Entrepreneur magazine as one of the 100 fastest growing franchise companies in the United States. In 2000, Home Instead Senior Care began international development with the opening of an international partner relationship in Osaka, Japan with Duskin Corporation.
