Becky Matlack: RN, BSN, Certified Dementia Practitioner, Director of Nursing

Becky is a garden state native.  She is the mother of 4 adult children; three sons and a daughter, and the grandmother of four.  Becky 's passion has always been to enhance the lives of others.  She knows all too well the rigors of caregiving and lends care to her mother who remains at home with Alzheimer's.

Becky holds a New Jersey School Nurse Certification and remains a mentor to children.  A foster parent who adopted her youngest son, her home remains licensed for children in need.  Becky credits her love for nursing to her father and an aunt. They both were stationed in the army and would relay tales of their times in the service to Becky during her youth.  Her aunt was an army nurse who later became a Psychiatric Nurse in a New Jersey hospital.  Becky chose to emulate her and the desire was fostered to become a nurse.  In high school Becky volunteered as a "Candy Striper" and then as a young mother entered a Practical Nurse Program.  Her passion for her profession drove her to pursue becoming a Registered Nurse.  She obtained her Bachelor's of Science in 2005.


Becky embraced the diversity that a nursing career afforded.  She began working with intellectually disabled individuals, she then entered home care management, next as a Health Services Administrator in a NJ prison achieving national accreditation, and ultimately as an Assistant Director of Nursing Services in a forensic hospital.  Becky possesses an unwavering desire to excel, create and implement positive change  and this has led her to hold management positions in each venue pursued.  

Becky is excited about having joined our Home Instead Family and looks forward to being a proactive member of our Team.  She is a positive motivator and will work effortlessly to enhance the lives of our community seniors.  


June Land: RN, Certified Dementia Practitioner

​June was born and raised in New Jersey and the variety of places she has lived in NJ is not the only thing that has diversity in her life.  June was a “Candy Striper” when she was in High School and had a strong desire to help people; she even entered a “follow a nurse” program at JFK Hospital in Edison to investigate a career in nursing.  Unfortunately, one day while working with a nurse she experiences a troubling situation which involved an elderly woman in distress; she wanted to help people not hurt them and so changed her career direction.  June spent over 20 years working in the Information Technology field. She held multiple positions, as a Data Center Manager, a Programmer, and a Project Management Director.  During this time, she traveled throughout the United States providing computer training and support to many aspects of the manufacturing and sales industries.  Her passion for wanting to help people continued to tug at her heart strings.  She met her soon to be husband during this time, and he supported her in her decision to make a career change.  She became an Admissions Representative in the proprietary school industry, where she could provide guidance to people, young and old, who wanted to identify a new career opportunity for themselves.  She worked her way up the ladder and became an Eastern Regional Manager.  Again, she found herself on the road, traveling the U.S. and moving further away from her passion of wanting to help people.  Unfortunately, her Mother-in-law took ill and June left her job to assist in the process of advocating and caring for her.  Being in the health care setting, June was faced once again with her strong desire to help people and the idea of nursing came back to the forefront.  
At the age of 46, with much support and encouragement from her husband and a couple of insistent nursing instructors, June embarked on a nursing degree.  She graduated Magna Cum Laude with an Associate Degree in Science from Warren County Community College and received her Registered Nurse license from the state of New Jersey.  While she attended the nursing program she worked as an Aide at Hackettstown Medical Center in the Progress Care Unit, and once she received her nursing license, she became a nurse on that unit.  After 3 years in the hospital setting, June went on to spend 4 years as a Hospice nurse, where she was able to help many clients and families find comfort and solace during the very difficult and challenging period of end of life.  June loved working with the senior population and wanted to find a way to give back more.  During one Holiday season, a friend invited her to “wrap gifts” for “Be a Santa to a Senior/Veteran Program”.  That’s when June walked through the doors of Home Instead Senior Care and never looked back!  June has found her home in helping seniors “Age in Place” and adding quality to their lives.
June is an integral part of the Home Instead team.  She works with the other nurses to provided new assessments and routine reassessments for our client base.  June advocates for our clients daily and provides teaching to clients and families to encourage their independents at home.  June also works with the other nurses on supervising and training our CAREGivers, to keep them current on home care processes and procedures.  She obtained her Certified Dementia Practitioner certification since she’s been with Home Instead to provide even more knowledge to this growing demographic of our aging seniors.
June currently resides in Hope, N.J. with her husband and their three “fuzzy” children.  She and her husband love their Airedale terriers and never take a vacation or trip without them.
