Karen & Dave Huber - Franchise Owners

Karen & Dave Huber - Franchise Owners
​​Karen & David Huber became franchise owners in October 2007.  Karen's previous career was in banking as the Senior Group Director of a locally owned bank in town.  Karen helped the senior customers with their banking needs in addition to holding monthly meetings and special events.  She also arranged and escorted the monthly bus trips; some just a day or two, others were week long trips throughout the United States, including cruises and international tours. 
 
Karen enjoys the day to day duties of running a busy office, yet her greatest enjoyment is being out meeting with new families and prospective clients to share with them the services that are offered here at Home Instead Senior Care. 
 
Having been born and raised in Cedar Rapids has helpfed because she knows what is going on within the community.  Karen's own Grandmother utilizes the services of Home Instead Senior Care.  As Karen witnessed her grandmothers decline in health, she realized the impact that has been made in her life by having assistance from a CAREGiver a few times a week.  Karen encourages her CAREGivers and office staff to provide that same quality of care and attention that her grandmother receives.  
 
David continures works at Penford Products in Cedar Rapids, yet he is actively involved with major decisions for the office and helps out when he can.  He enjoys meeting with the CAREGivers and assisting the Home Instead office staff with special projects during the year, especially the golf outings! 
 
"To Us, It's Personal" is not only part of the Home Instead logo, it is what Karen & David believe in, which is why they made the decision to become franchise owners and why they truly enjoy what they do each day.

Sherry Peterson - Office Manager

Sherry Peterson - Office Manager Sherry Peterson started with Home Instead Senior Care in April of 2007 as a CAREGiver. In June of that same year, she was brought into the office as the Recruiting and Retention Coordinator. As business continued to grow she stepped into the Office Manager position. She takes pride in making sure that we have the right type of CAREGiver scheduled for each of our clients.
Sherry is typically the staff member that you will reach if you call the office after business hours. She feels it is most reassuring to clients, their families, and caregivers to know that someone who knows them and their needs is available at nights and on the weekends.
Outside of work hours, Sherry enjoys spending time visiting with Veterans, particularly Veterans in our local care centers.
