"Home Instead Senior Care is personal to me because my passion is caring for seniors. It’s really that simple. For many clients, I am the first Home Instead face they see during their initial Care Consultation. My goal is to be that calm, reassuring voice to these individuals and convince them more than anything, that it’s OK to ask for help. Our goal is to allow each senior to be as independent as possible, thereby enabling them to stay in their own homes and familiar surroundings for as long as possible. I am blessed to have the opportunity to meet and work with so many seniors, learn about their backgrounds, past professions, family history, and future goals. It is my sincerest hope that I am able to bless my clients and their families as much as they’ve blessed me."
