​My wife, Lori, and I are the proud owners of the Home Instead Senior Care business of Central Oregon. We love being part of the Home Instead Family because we share the values and Mission of the national organization. Additionally, a personal positive experience with my grandfather led us in this direction. Grandpa passed away on Thanksgiving Day 2010, but he as able to live at home until he was 92 because of a service like we provide.
I come to Home Instead Senior Care with over a decade of management experience primarily in the software industry. It has been a life long dream to own and operate my own business and coupled with my experiences with my grandfather purchasing an existing Home Instead Franchise was a perfect match.

I have lived in Central Oregon since 1986 and love living here where there are so many outdoor family activities to enjoy. In my spare time, I enjoy spending time with my family camping, hiking, fishing, and hunting. We also are avid Oregon State Beaver fans. I am married to my wonderful wife Lori, have 2 great boys: Bobby (21) and Shayne (18​).

​Todd and I are thrilled to own Home Instead Senior Care of Central Oregon. We love meeting our clients and our CAREGivers and hearing all the wonderful stories they have to share. This business is a real blessing in our life. Like Todd's grandfather, we had a similar experience with my grandmother that helped us understand just how important caregiving is in the lives of seniors.

My professional experience has been in financial analysis, accounting and internet advertising. All of these areas are proving invaluable to me as we embark on this journey. In 2004, I was able to accomplish a personal goal of earning my Master of Divinity degree. I'm excited to use the counseling and communication training I received through that program in our new business.

Todd and I love being a part of the Central Oregon community, and take advantage of all the outdoor activities every chance we get. In the spring and summer you'll find us fishing the Cascade Lakes or hiking the buttes and mountains. We also spend a lot of time watching youth sports: football, basketball and baseball.

​I am a native Oregonian. I was born and raised in Southern Oregon, and moved to Bend about 5 years ago. I enjoy running, swimming, spending time with friends and family and activities with my church family. I started working for Home Instead Senior Care as a CAREGiver in April of 2009 and was shortly after invited to join the office team as the Receptionist. I get to work with a team of amazing people while still enjoying visits with and, at times, getting to care for the clients that I love so much. Working for Home Instead has been the most rewarding job I have had during my short career!

My name is Abby. I moved to Bend in 2008 from my home state of Colorado. I started working for Home Instead in the fall of that same year as a CAREGiver. I never pictured myself in the field, but soon learned that I had the heart of a CAREGiver. I have worked with many different clients over the years and each one of them has brought a unique experience to my life. I am now working in the office and really enjoy getting to know all the clients and caregivers who make our company so outstanding.

Outside of work I take pleasure in all that Central Oregon has to offer. Hiking, fishing, camping, and snow sports are some of my favorite pastimes. I’m very appreciative for the opportunity to work with Home Instead.

​Hi, I’m Karen. I am a native Oregonian born and raised in Prineville. I have two grown sons and four grandchildren.

I also have a very spoiled mini Doxy named Rudy.

I started working as a CAREGiver for Home Instead Senior Care in 2011, after caring for my mother for 3 ½ yrs.

Working with seniors is a very rewarding occupation and I enjoy it very much. I feel honored to say that I am now a part of the office staff and am also enjoying that very much.

Spending time with my family is my main priority. I like to read a lot, mostly mystery and suspense novels.

I also like to watch scary movies. When I have the chance I like to go camping and 4-wheeling.I also like to work in the yard planting flowers and pulling weeds.

After taking care of my aging grandfather in his final days, it was then that I found my passion of caring for seniors. I moved to Bend to be closer to my grandkids and became a CAREgiver for Home Instead. After a couple of years as a CAREgiver I was asked to join the office staff as a receptionist/weekend supervisor and eventually onto the roll of a scheduler. I love my job and making a difference in our seniors lives. 

Outside of work I love to spend time with my grandsons. I enjoy going to watch all their sports activities and during the summer we spend a lot of time outdoors and at the lakes enjoying the  beauty of Central Oregon.

Bobby S. - Marketing Specialist

Bobby S. - Marketing Specialist

​Hi there! My name is Bobby and I am the eldest son of Todd and Lori Sensenbach. I am currently enrolled at Oregon State University where I am studying business and psychology. In the past, I’ve held many leadership positions. They include roles in student government, FBLA, sports teams, and the food service industry. I’ve been privileged with the opportunity to attain hands-on experience in the business setting, while under the guidance of my parents and co-workers. This summer I plan to absorb as much as I can from marketing, my favorite aspect of business. While I’m with Home Instead, I want to incorporate the concepts I’ve learned in school, but more importantly, I want to take brand new concepts back with me.

 I’ve lived in Oregon almost all of my life and no matter where I end up, it will always be home to me. My personal interests and passions include film, writing, music, and learning about human behavior. In my spare time I enjoy team sports, snowboarding, hiking, and anything else outdoors!

​I moved to Bend in September 2014 with my husband Jamie, Danny my son and Rory our mixed lab dog (who thinks she is human). I was born and raised in Ohio, but have since lived on both sides of the country and am now very happy to call Bend our home. My background has been in health care for over 18 years, always having worked with Seniors. I was hired here at HomeInstead in November 2014 as a CAREgiver, and this past March was given the opportunity to work with a wonderful group of people as a Weekend Supervisor/Receptionist in the HomeInstead office. In my career, I found such enjoyment working with the elderly and learned so much from all my experiences with them. On a personal level, I helped to care for both of my parents in the later years of their lives and treasure all the time and memories of caregiving for them. Being HomeInstead is a belief very near and dear to my heart, and I feel honored to work toward this goal with our caregivers on behalf of our clients.

When I am not at work, I enjoy spending time with my family. We enjoy hiking, biking and just exploring new areas. In addition, I love music of all types, movies and dance.

I am a native of the Adirondack Mountains, but spent most of my life in Seattle where I raised two sons, who are now parents. I am blessed with four grandchildren with whom I cherish hiking, paddling & skiing.

I just recently joined the Home Instead Senior Care team and could not be more thrilled to work for this company. I joined the team with 7 years of progressive Human Resource experience and feel lucky to provide HR services to the employees and clients of Home Instead.

I was born and raised right here in Bend! I love where I’m from and I’m happy to be able to call it home and have my entire family right here in the Central Oregon area. Some of my favorite things to do are camping, playing outdoor volleyball, and pretty much anything outside where I can enjoy the sun and water!
