A Brief History

"At Home Care" started in August of 1995 when John Bouchard was caring for his Mother at home. After seeing the significant needs of his mother and others in the community, John decided to start an agency to allowed his Mother and other aging seniors to stay in their homes longer. John changed the name of the business to "In-Home Care" in 2001. His mother was with the Agency and stayed in her home until December 2003.

In 2006, Richard and Colleen McLaughlin purchased "In-Home Care" from John.  A year later, Richard also bought "Area Home Care" in Lincoln. Since 2007, Richard continued to grow the company until it was recently sold, at which time, served close to 100 clients and had over 60 employees!


In early 2019, Mathew Shankweiler purchased "In-Home Care".  Mathew is an accomplished business owner, community steward, husband and father.  He is also a Combat Army Veteran who served in Afghanistan. His older sister has Developmentally Delayed since birth.  Mathew's deep understanding of the challenges our clients often faced with, combined with his modern business approach, he will bring the newly named agency, "Maine Home Care" into an age of growth using operational efficiencies that will lead to increased client and employee satisfaction.  These changes will have a direct, positive effect on our clients care, family communications and our ability to stay competitive for years to come.  It's an exciting time at Maine Home Care!
