​It's personal to me because I've had to make that call to someone you don't know, and ask them to care for your parents. My mom has Alzheimers' and my 83-year-old dad was recovering from heart surgery not long ago. I felt so relieved that I could place my trust in the owner and staff of a HomeInstead office in another state. They did a great job, and my dad loved his CAREGiver! It's also personal to me because I've spent the bulk of my 30-year career in health care, either running health not-for-profits, or helping physician organizations grow for improved clinical and operational results. My personal mission is to provide you and your family with the best-trained, most compassionate CAREGivers, so that the seniors we love can stay independent, active, and safe in their homes or wherever they may be.​​

​It's personal for me because my own family has experienced the value of keeping loved ones at home. In 2009, as a newly-minted college graduate, my mother was diagnosed with Posterior Cortical Atrophy, a severe and rare form of dementia. She was only 55 years old. With much effort and dedication, my sister and I became her CAREGivers and, with some help, we were able to ensure Mom's life in this world ended on her terms, in her home, on her time. That's why it's personal for me.

“To me, it’s personal because I can go to work knowing that I am making a difference in other’s lives.  Caring for those who once cared for us is an honor.  I feel privileged to have the opportunity of doing my very best to help them stay in the place they call home.”

Over 13 years ago, my paternal grandparents, who lived 6 hours away, were encouraged to move closer to my family.  My grandmother was suffering from mild dementia and my grandfather had, for years, been unable to properly care for himself without help from my grandmother.  We began to realize my parents needed to move closer to my grandmother when she crashed her car in to a cement wall and had told the police it was a certain year that it wasn't.  So my parents moved initially to an apartment.  However, after a few falls and almost burning down their apartment, it was evident they needed even MORE care than was expected.  At that point, the decision was made to move both my grandparents to a nursing home.  However, in retrospect, Home Instead Senior Care’s in-home non-medical services would have benefited my family greatly.  The services Home Instead Senior Care provides would have given my grandparents a chance to stay within the confines of their comfortable home, as well as given my father (an only child and sole caregiver for my grandparents) peace of mind that a qualified CAREGiver was taking exceptional care of his parents.

Justina Elsidodi, Recruitment and Retention Coordinator

Our lives are woven together through our daily exchanges with each other. Life revolves around interactions with other people and relationships of every kind are conducted person-to-person, making everything in life personal to someone.

The HISC motto of "To us, it's personal" Is one I fully support and take to heart. It's in these personal interactions with others that our reputations are forged. So, whether I'm interviewing a new applicant or conversing with a CAREGiver or a client, I'm very intentional about offering that HISC personal touch that reflects respect and thoughtfulness. This is what I want to exhibit in my role as Recruiting and Retention Coordinator with HISC. After all, it is our actions that reflect who we are, and what we are…and that is very personal.

Its personal to me because my grandmother was fortunate to have an in-home caregiver. She developed an instant bond with Peggy.  My grandmother loved to cook and bake. They began baking birthday cakes for the monthly birthday parties at her independent living facility. Grandmother became known as the birthday cake lady. She was independent and very happy. There were less falls and less medical visits.  Our family had peace of mind that grandmother was safe and thriving in her own home.

Caring for seniors is very personal to me. I have spent most of my life caring for others. My work with Home Instead has enabled me to get to know and build relationships with seniors and their families. Maintaining relationships and caring for seniors is how we put our clients first. 
When the care for someone who needs it is at stake I take that very seriously. We are in the business of serving others and I believe we serve them with love and compassion.
