Our Story

In Home Personal Services began in January 2004, founded by Michael A. Collura working with his own Mother to provide quality caregiving services to seniors who wished to remain in the comfort of their own home.

We understood early on the challenges facing many seniors and their families when it came to aging and the desire to maintain a safe and independent lifestyle in the comfort of one’s familiar surroundings.

In Home Personal Service was formed with the belief that home care should be tailored to meet the individual needs of every client. It has remained our mission, to ensure the client and their family receive the highest level of quality care.

Many challenges were faced along the way including new laws and regulations for standards of quality care introduced by State authorities in 2008. Michael and the IHPS team were already operating well above these new standards, proving their mission was a success as they had not only met the standards of quality care issued by the regulatory authorities; they had exceeded them.

Today, Michael continues his mission and In Home Personal Services has grown not just in its native State of Illinois, but throughout the United States.

“The best thing that we have, and the best part of what we have done, and the best way to describe a proven system, is in the people we have actually helped.”

2013 the first round of franchisees are brought on. Their feedback, insights and development of their own protected territories is further improved upon. We set out to make the system the best in the world, so we stop awarding new franchises for the next several years. Our focus is on ensuring we are a superior system in every way, and we don’t settle for being better, we want to be something more. We want to inspire and be a leader in the industry. So, we do the work. We study and we develop every detail of the system.

2020

2020 Covid. Just as the launch of our franchise system was about to take place, the pandemic hit. So once again we sought to first protect those that trusted us with their care and then prove the business model in what was the greatest challenge we could ever have endured. We achieved every goal we had and while tragic, the pandemic was the biggest and most significant test our system. We excelled and succeeded in ways so many others did not.

  • 2021 already two existing franchisees seek to expand their current protected territory. One operator just joined in January and by May is already working to expand within her first 6 months! We also are proud to have received such an amazing response from many competitors looking to join our system as a conversion franchisee.
