Pauline C. – October 2016

Pauline C. – October 2016

Pauline was born to be a CAREGiver. After having lived in Georgia and working for AT&T for 30 years, she retired and moved to Tennessee to care for her parents.

Pauline joined Home Instead Senior Care in November 2006. She says this is her dream job. Pauline planned to work as a CAREGiver for two or three years but little did she know, she would still be a part of the team over ten years later. Pauline doesn't have to ask the question "what do you want me to do next?" She takes initiative, sees what needs to be done and just does it.  Pauline is a great detective, she is very observant and knows what her clients need sometimes before they even know it themselves. There are countless ways Pauline exemplifies what it means to Live Home Instead. She is a true asset to our team.​

Joerina H. – August 2016

Joerina has been providing care for over 20 years.  She started by caring for her father after he suffered a stroke.  To provide better care for him, Joerina became a CNA, this also helped her in preventing self-injury.

Joerina works weekends for Home Instead Senior Care and has enjoyed being with the same client for nearly a year.  This particular client’s daughter says Joerina is very attentive and dependable so she does not have to worry about her parents and can do the things she needs to do on the weekends.

Joerina says to be a successful CAREGiver you must always think of your client first and put your needs aside for the time you are with them. ​


Roger M. – July 2016

Roger M. – July 2016

After making a move from Minnesota to Tennessee, Roger was looking for a job and ran across an ad for Home Instead Senior Care.  He hadn’t transferred his LPN license yet, and after seeing the ad, he thought this would be a type of job he would enjoy.

Roger comes from a very diverse background. He’s been a musician since he was 3 years old.  He states he can play any stringed instrument except for the cello.  He has been a truck driver, a warehouse manager and worked 6 years as an advanced EMT.  He was performing a lot of this work while attending school to get his LPN license.

Roger said he really enjoys working with seniors because as much as they appreciate him, he feels he gets the greater reward.  He loves listening to their stories and learning their history. ​
