Home Instead Senior Care changes ownership

Susan Abbott, owner of Home Instead Senior Care since May 2000, has sold her franchise.

The new owners are Harrison and Mary Margaret Hatfield. They took over Nov. 1.

“I have loved owning Home Instead for the last 16 and a half years,” Abbott said. “However, now is the time for me to move on to new ventures and adventures. I am confident that Harrison and Mary Margaret are the right people to grow the business, while maintaining its standards.”

The Hatfields are first-time business owners.

After graduating from the University of Alabama-Tuscaloosa, Harrison worked for his father’s small business in Gadsden, Ala.

Most recently, the couple served in vocational ministry for the past nine years while raising their three children. They moved to Prescott in October to take over Home Instead Senior Care.
