Gloria R. - Client Care Coordinator

​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.

I have worked in neurosurgery, psychiatry, medicine, home health and emergency, and as a college instructor. I love people and service to them which led me to several years in seminary.

​I moved to Oregon in June of 2016 with my 4 kids from Southern California to begin a new adventure here in the PNW. I was with the Home Instead Senior Care family in my home town for almost 4years. I have enjoyed the diversity of Oregon with all the great people and events  there is to offer. I  was so happy to find that Home Instead Senior Care Bend is close to my new home and I became a CAREgiver shortly after we arrived to Bend. I have enjoyed caring for our seniors in the community and I am privileged and honored to continue serving our seniors in our community as well as our fantastic Caregivers.

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’ve even caught myself saying, I’m going to work here as a CAREGiver one day. 

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!

Thayne G. - Retention Coordinator

Thayne G. - Retention Coordinator

​I have over 12 years in the medical field both emergency and non-emergency. I have a passion for helping members in our community and a deep passion for helping our elders who need care. My goal and mission here at HISC is to serve our CAREGivers and give them the tools they need to help our clients and their families in the community. 

My hobbies consist of spending time with my three children, participating in outdoor sports and activities. I also enjoy volunteering time in our community to mentor and help with middle school and high school student at a local church. 
The reason I chose to be a part of the HISC team stems from my love and care that I have provided to my grandparents over the last year. I saw how difficult the transition can be on both clients and families and look to make a change to how care is given and to provide comfort for both family members and clients through the best CAREGivers here in Central Oregon.

My name is Cheri and I’m so excited to be a part of the Home Instead team! 
I was born and raised in the Pacific Northwest, spending my summers with my grandma here in Bend, OR. I fell in love with Central Oregon and knew someday I would move here. I went to Atlanta, GA  for college and loved my time there, but it wasn’t home. When my grandma fell ill I moved back to take care of her and it was while I was taking care of her that I became passionate about helping seniors. I started out with Home Instead as a CAREgiver and now I’m looking forward to the opportunity of being in the office serving seniors and caregivers as the Receptionist.

In my spare time my favorite things to do is day trip to explore new places or have weekend adventures. I love to spend time with my boyfriend, family, and friends. Reading, volunteering for the humane society or hospital, and baking are a few of my hobbies.

Susan O. - On-Call Supervisor
Although I was born in Bend, I did not live here until I moved to Bend from Michigan in 2015 to be close to my parents.  During my adolescent years I lived in Taiwan, Israel and Virginia.  Most of those years I was raised in Virginia close to Washington D.C.  

I'm very compassionate about caring for those who cannot care for themselves.  I started working for Home Instead as a caregiver in March of 2016.  I am now working in the office, front desk receptionist position.  I look forward to working with all of the Home Instead family.

I enjoy walking and traveling, especially to any place that has to do with water: oceans, water falls, rivers, lakes, etc.  I also like to read mysteries.
