Business

Mike Levine, the owner of Home Instead Senior Care of Venice, has received a Venice Lifetime Achievement Award. Randy Moore, the publisher of South County Healthy Living and Englewood Healthy Living, made the announcement today. “Mike has been a champion of many area nonprofits during his career,” Moore said. “His advocacy in support of seniors and caregivers is particularly noteworthy.”

Mike’s history in the Venice area began as a child working at Royal Coachmen Resort, the family’s business in Nokomis. After growing a network of radio stations, Mike returned to Venice to manage and eventually sell the family RV business. He then resurrected a local franchise restaurant that had closed. Mike expanded the operation to five stores in two years earning recognition as the Company Franchise of the Year in 1999 and the Sarasota County Small Business of the Year in 2000. 

Mike spend the next three years as a senior consultant with a national consulting firm specializing in the campground industry. Some of his projects included helping to develop the restaurants at Linger Lodge and the Ellington Ice Rink. Mike then joined The Salvation Army to remodel, staff and operate their two thrift stores. The store in Venice is still the most successful Salvation Army store in Florida.

Mike bought a franchise in 2012 with Home Instead Senior Care and his territory includes Venice, Osprey, North Port, Englewood, Gulf Gate, Manasota Key, Casey Key, South Siesta Key, and Palmer Ranch. His team currently supports 125 seniors. In addition to serving on the Salvation Army board for 20 years, Mike has also served on the board for the local retirement community Village on the Isle. Mike’s Be a Santa to a Senior Program supports more than 850 seniors each year.
