In 1985 our founder, Kevin Sullivan, (my brother) was injured in a diving accident which left him paralyzed from the neck down. After a quick study of the home health care world, he felt that the process of recruiting, hiring and training a caregivers could be done better. Kevin’s own experience as a quadriplegic was instrumental in his decision to start In Home Personal Care.started IHPC. So in his apartment in St. Louis Park. With his word processor typed business plan in hand, he started the business with 1-2 clients whom he knew from his stay at Courage Center. Our Mother did the filing for him, helped him place ads, and after hiring his first few caregivers he was in business! Some of those caregivers and clients, are still with us today!
The individuals that IHPC serves has grown in number and diversification. After Kevin’s passing in 2011, I am so proud that the business continues to thrive and I can continue to advance Kevin’s legacy.
To all of you, thank you!
