Colleen & Ryan Jershy, Franchise Owners

Colleen & Ryan Jershy, Franchise Owners
Ryan and Colleen Jershy, who are natives of Windsor, Ontario, both lost their fathers within a span of ten months, and decided that they wanted to do something different with their careers. Ryan was in sales and Colleen was an account supervisor with an advertising agency. While they had good jobs, they felt that providing home care was the answer. Says Colleen: “It was the horrible loss that we both experienced that prompted us to change our career paths. We were looking for something more rewarding that allowed us to give back to our community and help families in need.”
 
Caring for grandparents and dealing with personal loss gave the Jershys a keen insight into the dilemma people face when they need care. Ryan grew up in a home with his grandmother, and after she had a massive stroke, home care services weren’t an option. The family had no choice but to put her in a care facility. When his own father took ill, Ryan says that the caregiving toll on his mother was huge and she found it difficult to cope.
 
They opened up the local Home Instead Senior Care office in 2009 and have been overwhelmed by how rewarding and fulfilling it has been for the both of them.

They made my decision to join the Home Instead Senior Care team an easy one. Although I have really enjoyed being a CAREGiver for our seniors, I am excited about my position as a Client Care Coordinator.”
