Mark & Lee McBriarty

Owners of Home Instead Senior Care Adelaide

Mark & Lee McBriarty established the first office in Adelaide in 2008. Lee is a qualified enrolled Nurse (Adv Dip) who has worked in both the private and public Hospital systems across Adelaide. Whilst assisting her mother to maintain her independence as she aged, Lee was quickly made aware of the disconcerting lack of quality services and support available to seniors in the community. This, combined with Adelaide’s rapidly aging population, was the catalyst for Lee to look at establishing the Home Instead Senior Care office. 

Mark began his career in hospitality, working across three continents in senior leadership roles for 5 star hotels. Mark’s strong human resource management background, his passion for superior customer service, and his personal experience of caring for his mother, whom underwent a stroke in her early adulthood, was the incentive for Mark to jointly establish Home Instead Senior Care with Lee, and recruit only the very best CAREGivers to assist the seniors in the community.

Maria joined Home Instead Senior Care with a strong background in administration and previous experience as a Carer. Joining our team in our first year of operation, 2008, Maria has been an integral part of Home Instead for many years.

Furthermore, Maria ensures that all CAREGivers regularly refresh their basic training and keep up to date with new programs. Maria also supervises and manages day-to-day office operations.
