Dee and Rob Rister
Owners

Dee and Rob Rister started HomeWell Care Services of Lexington as a way to marry two unique backgrounds. Having 35 years experience as a Nurse and a Midwife and reaching the pinnacle of her career with a Doctorate in Nursing, Dee was ready to explore the business aspect of her practice. Rob had over 20 years experience in business and an in depth understanding of the long-term care dilemma that a growing aging population faces. These two committed individuals combined their knowledge and experiences into a partnership dedicated to providing the care and attention they would expect for their own aging family members. Their primary goal at HomeWell is to exceed the expectations of caring for your loved one. Each member of the HomeWell team is challenged to ask themselves each day: “Is this the care, service and attention that I would want for my own mother or father?”

Our Philosophy

Trusted care. True compassion.

Our top priority is your peace-of-mind.

We all function better when we enjoy life more. For most people, this can be achieved through increased activity, reduced stress, better nutrition and basic companionship. As simple as that observation is, it is at the core of what we do. Our primary objective is to bring more enjoyment to the lives of those who find it increasingly difficult to function well on their own. We remove the burden of stress from both the person needing assistance, as well as those who love and care for them. We help people maintain their dignity and their independence. We protect and care for those who are unable to do so themselves. We help people function better. We help people enjoy life more. We do all of this by working as a team to provide reliable and compassionate in-home care that goes so far beyond typical adult care services.
