​​​​​​​Home Instead Senior Care Team​​

At Your Service 24/7 in Evansville, IN

Every day, all across America, families are struggling to cope. Many are raising children, working demanding jobs and trying to care for a senior family member. These Americans are often called the "Sandwich Generation", and they are growing in record numbers. That's because America is aging in record numbers.

By the year 2020, the number of seniors will equal the number of 20 to 35 year olds.  Advances in medicine and healthier lifestyles will help seniors work longer and continue to lead more productive lives.  But the numbers also tell another story.  More and more children need to help care for their parents.  These family caregivers eventually run out of hours in the day, the stress becomes too great and the balance is broken.

Meet our team below.  We are committed to helping our local families and friends to meet the increasing demands of elder care. ​

Gabriel Lawrence, Lead CARE Manager

Gabriel Lawrence, Lead CARE Manager Gabriel graduated from the University of Southern Indiana in April 2016 earning a Bachelor’s Degree in Health Services with a minor in Health Administration. Prior to joining the Home Instead Family she worked as a nursing assistant, which allowed her to develop a passion for working with the elderly. Gabriel is married and has two dogs. She’s the oldest of six children and is from the small town of Orleans, Indiana. She loves spending time with her family, friends and anything sport related.
 
Gabriel’s life motto: Live everyday as if it will be your last. 
 
“I enjoy being able to make sure our clients are staying happy and healthy while they are able to stay in their own home. At times seniors do not have the support that they should and I feel as if we as a team build that support for them,” states Gabriel.

Julie Horner, CAREGiver Training & Support Coordinator

Julie Horner, CAREGiver Training & Support Coordinator

Julie began at Home Instead as a weekend CAREGiver. Now, as the CAREGiver Trainer/SupporCoordinator, Julie trains our CAREGivers on what needs to be done for our clients. That means they understand they may be doing light housekeeping, personal care, transportation to a doctors appointment or cooking a nutritious meal.

Julie also trains CAREGivers on Alzheimer's Disease and other Dementias. "My grandfather passed away with this disease, and I see exactly how that impacts family members. So it is my passion to train our CAREGivers about this devastating disease and how they can make a difference in the lives of their clients and family."

Julie enjoys spending time with her husband and three children.

Dennis Gunther, VP of Operations

Dennis Gunther, VP of Operations

Dennis came to Home Instead Senior Care in January of 2005 after working for Deaconess Hospital for twenty years. In 1992 after the death of his mother, Dennis decided that it was time to change careers, because he wanted to know that what he did on a daily basis made a difference. He went back to school and became a Critical Care Tech on the cardiovascular care center and eventually became an educator for the hospital. In 1997 Dennis took a position in the Resource Center and was a part of Deaconess Hospital's Senior Program. It was here that Dennis found his true calling. While in the Resource Center Dennis assisted in the opening of the two Deaconess Primary Care Centers for Seniors in Evansville.  

In early 2005 Dennis was offered the position of Operations Manager and he quickly accepted. "It didn't take me long after learning about the history of Home Instead Senior Care and its mission to know this was where I belonged," said Dennis. "It is a great feeling to know that you are making a difference on a daily basis. I truly enjoy coming to work everyday." As Operations Manager he oversees the daily operations of all areas of the business. Dennis has a strong passion for seniors and believes in Home Instead Senior Care and its mission. He works closely with all the administrative team to ensure the highest level of customer satisfaction.  In June of 2012, Dennis was promoted to Vice President of Business Development.  In his new role, he now is able to focus on the development of Home Instead outside of the office walls.

Dennis loves his daily interaction with clients, families and CAREGivers. He has a vision, passion and a purpose and that is to make a difference in the lives of our local seniors and their families. Dennis would welcome the opportunity to talk with you about how his team can assist you.

One of Ben's greatest strengths is his ability to empower each and every employee to grow both professionally and personally. He takes great pride in bringing out the "greatness" of each of his employees, whether they are part of our Administrative Team or one of our extraordinary CAREGivers.
