Kari Ann Gomez

Home Instead

Kari is the owner of Home Instead Senior Care, Lakeland serving western Polk County. Kari recently purchased the Home Instead Senior Care Franchise in 2018. Home Instead Senior Care offers families and seniors peace of mind in many different ways. “We can go in and care for seniors wherever they call home, private homes, retirement communities, skilled nursing and even hospitals. This allows our seniors to have an advocate for them and allow them to be as independent as possible!” Kari’s employees are always learning and staying up on the latest care needs through our trainings at the office and even in our skills lab where one can even be trained on Hoyer Lifts!

For over 20 years, Kari has been working with seniors in various capacities with some major Assisted Living, Memory Care Communities and Independent Living Communities as well as working as a Sales and Marketing Rep for Home Instead in 2012. Excited to be back in Lakeland, Kari looks forward to partnering with many people and help change the face of aging through her team, her knowledge and partnering with our community!

Kari is proud to serve on the BLFS board as the 2022 President.
