Franchise Owners, Mark and Nicole Labib, LMSW
My father Maher Z. Labib, my hero, my friend, was diagnosed with Pancreatic Cancer. The diagnosis was not good. They gave him three months to live. I immediately took a leave of absence from work and resigned in February 2009 not knowing what was to come. In June 2009 I came across the Home Instead franchise for sale. I did my due diligence on the business and the industry. I was impressed with all of it. Maybe it was the fact that I spent every day in a hospital with my dad that gave me an appreciation for home care, or maybe it was the fact I witnessed complete strangers care for my dad so passionately. Whatever it was it felt right.
My father's sickness and death lead to the point where being a Home Instead Senior Care franchise owner was the right move for my family and I. I am grateful for everyday that lead me to this wonderful agency. I now love what I do, and I love meeting with families and sharing my story as I personally know there struggles and pain for caring for an aging and sometimes ill parent. It is a wonderful feeling knowing you make a difference in a seniors life. I have truly found my calling.
