Share Article

Lakelyn Hogan, Gerontologist and Caregiver Advocate for Home Instead Senior Care, recently returned to Dr. Phil in a follow-up segment about a woman struggling to care for her elderly mother. Home Instead’s nearby Thousand Oaks location is ready to provide the same kind of residential assisted living solutions that Lakelyn so passionately advocated for on the program.

Home Instead Senior Care in Thousand Oaks recently shared the exciting news of Lakelyn Hogan’s appearance on Dr. Phil as she returned to highlight the challenges facing caregivers for seniors in a follow-up segment.

The original Dr. Phil segment, which aired last spring, featured a woman named Tracy who was struggling to care for her elderly mother while simultaneously maintaining a career and caring for her children. People like Tracy belong to what is known as the “sandwich generation” because they care for the generation below them (children) and the generation above them (parents). Many members of this generation also work outside the home to financially support themselves and their family. In the original segment, Tracy was struggling to care for her mother, who suffers from dementia. Dr. Phil called on Lakelyn Hogan to help, and the two surprised this busy caregiver with six months of free elderly care from Home Instead.

When Lakelyn returned to Dr. Phil, she was delighted to learn of the impact that Home Instead has had on Tracy’s life. “Because my mother’s been cared for so well, I've been able to study and get my real estate license and that has let me expand my designer consignment business,” Tracy said. And while she knows her mother’s memory is not going to improve, she said “it’s like her personality is back.”

Home Instead Senior Care’s Thousand Oaks location is proud to bring this same kind of relief to elderly people and their caregivers in Southern California. The Thousand Oaks franchise is located at 171 E. Thousand Oaks Blvd, Suite 203, Thousand Oaks, CA 91360.
