Wichita’s Home Instead Senior Care to expand
WICHITA,KS: (WichitaKSRealty.News) Home Instead Senior Care, a full-service senior care facility equipped to provide all elements for a safe and healthy retirement, this week announced they have plans to expand their operation once again. The franchise, located at 1919 N. Amidon, will remain at the same address but will now be in 3,100 square feet on its first floor of the building. As CEO Michael Steinberg put it, “Our family keeps growing.”
The expansion will add approximately 1,000 square feet to their current operation. The franchise, which is based out of Omaha, Nebraska, opened their Wichita location in 2011. The reason for the expansion, cites Steinberg, is to provide more space and comprehensive training to onboarding staff. Since their clientele keeps expanding, more staff hirings are becoming mandatory for the facility. As the building stands now, they have one tiny conference room for training and orientation space. “We just have a conference room. If we were really lucky, we could fit a max of eight people in it at a time,” said Steinberg.
The new classroom inside the expansion will be able to accommodate 20 people at a time. Steinberg predicts the expansion will suffice for the next five years before the franchise will be looking to expand again, perhaps to a second floor inside the building.
But, Steinberg is busy in the mean time growing the franchise, and is looking for someone else to open another Home Instead in the Wichita region. There is currently one in Hutchinson, but there aren’t any others within a reasonable distance from the singular Wichita location. As Steinberg put it, “It would be nice to have a neighbor.”
Home Instead has been proudly serving families and the elderly for five years now in Wichita. They hope to include even more clients and families in upcoming months.
