History

Maximum Home Support Services is a locally owned and operated home support agency founded in 1992 by Brian and Maxine Hoskins.  Since then, Maximum Home Support Services Inc., in partnership with Western Health, has been providing high quality, award-winning home support services to clients throughout Western Newfoundland and Labrador.

As a Public Health Nurse with the former Western Health Care Corporation, Maxine Hoskins,  developed the agency after observing the great need for home support services in her work. Together with her husband, Brian, they developed the agency from the ground up, one client at a time. Maxine won several prestigious business leadership awards for her work in developing the agency. As operations grew, another office was established in the Stephenville area. A registered nurse, Sharon Bennett, was hired to manage the Stephenville office and continues to manage this office today. The agency has been built into a home support business that is known for its integrity, quality and compassion, and for providing high standards of service delivery.

In 2012, the reigns were passed over to Irene Sheppard and in March 2014, Irene and her husband, Dennis, along with partners, Carolyn and David Buckle purchased Maximum Home Support Services Inc.  As experienced health and business professionals, this team pours their knowledge, skills and expertise into strengthening Maximum Home Support Services as a leading home support agency in the province. 

The agency, along with the Home Support Workers and office staff, continues to grow and develop under the guidance and mentorship of the new management team.
