Shanna Jay Howard, Certified Senior Advisor (CSA) - Franchise Owner

shanna.jay@homeinstead.com

Shanna's first experience with Home Instead Senior Care was in 2007 when she worked as the Community Service Representative for a local North Carolina Home Instead office. While working with the seniors in that market, her passion for the industry only grew. When the opportunity presented itself to open an office in the Lexington area in 2008, she knew it was a great chance to share her knowledge of providing care to seniors with the wonderful people in Davidson and Davie Counties. She has since dedicated her career to position Home Instead Senior Care as the trusted home care agency in the area. Being the family member of a Home Instead client, Shanna knows how important our care becomes to seniors and their families. This is one reason she is so commited to making a difference in the lives of seniors in our community. With just a little assistance from one of our wonderful CAREGivers, seniors are able to thrive in their homes for years and years! We pride ourselves on being the experts on senior care so if Home Instead is not the option for you, we encourage you to still give us a call so that we may assist you and your loved ones in finding the right care choice for your needs. We love what we get to do each and every day at Home Instead Senior Care, and for 7 years now we have seen so many lives changed by our services. We look forward to hearing from you and working with your family!
 
What it means to be a Certified Senior Advisor:
 
When you work with a professional who has added the Certified Senior Advisor designation to their credentials, you know you are working with someone who has invested time and effort to learning about the things that are important to you. CSAs become CSAs because they want to learn more about the health, financial and social aspects of being age 55 or older. They have made specific efforts to earn your trust and they have committed to ongoing CSA continuing education standards that encourage volunteering for activities that help seniors and that require regular training in dealing with the issues facing seniors today.
 
Insist on working with a Certified Senior Advisor; work with someone who is committed to you!
