Home Instead Senior Care is expanding to its 17th foreign country. The Omaha provider of in-home care services for seniors is opening its first franchise in Mexico, in Monterray, the capital of Nuevo Leon.

Home Instead said the number of Mexicans aged 65 and older has more than doubled in the past 50 years.

“We are pleased to have a partner that will bring Home Instead’s high standards for quality care and services into Mexico, where the needs of the senior population reflect the increased need we have seen across the globe,” said chief executive officer Roger Baumgart.

Home Instead services include Alzheimer’s care, shopping, meal preparation, light housekeeping, errands, medication reminders, personal care and companionship. The company has nearly 1,000 franchises worldwide.

Founded in 1994 in Omaha by Lori and Paul Hogan, Home Instead has franchises in the United States, Canada, Japan, Portugal, Australia, New Zealand, Ireland, the United Kingdom, Taiwan, Switzerland, Germany, South Korea, Finland, Austria, Italy, Puerto Rico, the Netherlands and Mexico.
