"Home Instead Senior Care is personal to me because I have been in the shoes of those who are caring for their parents and grandparents.  My grandmother had Alzheimer’s and my mother lost her independence at a young age, due to her failing health and eyesight.  I wish I had the resource  of a company like Home Instead Senior Care to help me through these difficult situations.   I am so grateful to be able to help other families cope easier with their aging parents, by working at Home Instead Senior Care."

"Home Instead Senior Care is personal to me because the assistance by caregivers allowed my grandmother to remain in her home during the final days of her life.  It also allowed my mother and the rest of our family to spend quality time with my grandmother and feel comforted that she was receiving quality care.  My husband and I want to provide that same level of comfort to other families in our community. "

“When I am in the community talking with our referral providers, I see firsthand the difference we make in helping others, especially those who return home after a fall or procedure and need a little extra help during their transition. I am especially proud of what we do when Social Workers and RN’s look to us to help their patients when they are discharged from a hospital or rehab facility.”

Home Instead Senior Care is personal to me because I have observed firsthand how difficult it can be on families to have the responsibility to care for their loved ones all the time.

Jody Edwards, Service Coordinator

Jody Edwards, Service Coordinator
Home Instead Senior Care is personal to me for a number of reasons.  First and foremost being my experience over the last few years relying on home health care providers to help us mange the care of two elderly family members.  I understand, from the customer perspective, the questions, concerns, challenges and needs of our clients at every stage.  Be it assisted living, homebound care or hospice, I experienced it all prior to working in this industry.  When faced with the recent challenge of taking my career in a different direction, I was thrilled to be offered a position with such a compassionate company.  I’ve always taken pride in my work in the past but working for Home Instead Senior Care gives me something beyond simple pride. Being involved with and working toward a better quality of life for our important and loved senior community is meaningful work and rewarding beyond a paycheck.  It doesn’t get much more personal than that.”
 
Jody comes to Home Instead after a successful career in a variety of roles, including Accounting, Human Resources, and Training.  Jody is on our staffing team and manages the schedules for our growing list of clients and caregivers.  Jody lives with her husband in Union, has two children, and recently became a Grandmother. ​
