"I am continually struck by the professionalism, high level of caring and exemplary caregivers that I have met from Home Instead. My mom couldn't live without them, and neither could I.
Peggy and her husband are originally from Pennsylvania, where they raised two sons. Now they have a daughter-in-law and a grandson who is now one! They are very proud of him! Peggy worked several years in a customer service position prior to her arrival at the Home Instead in Winchester, VA. She started as a CAREGiver and after demonstrating exceptional CAREGiver abilities, was promoted to Recruitment and Retention Assistant and then Client Care Coordinator. She taught Alzheimer's training classes to CAREGivers and family caregivers, performed care consultations, visited clients, and handles client concerns. Peggy's genuine care and concern for seniors and passion for her work has proved her a great fit for our team in the position of Client Care Coordinator in South Carolina. She will have the same responsibilities she performed so well in Virginia. She enjoys physical fitness and also strives to live a healthy lifestyle. We are so very fortunate Peggy and her husband moved to South Carolina and she found her way to our Home Instead family!
Sandi has been a part of Home Instead Senior Care, sharing her caring and compassionate heart as a CAREGiver since September of 2009. Quality care has always been very important to Sandy who spent 43 years as a registered nurse. Several years ago, she decided to retire, but found she still wanted to serve. Becoming a CAREGiver gave her that opportunity, just at a little slower and less demanding pace. Now, as our nurse, with our focus on the quality of care we provide, Sandy is a perfect fit. It is our good fortune that she has decided to step back into a nursing role.
