Margi Kenny is the newest member of our Home Instead Team.
She was hired as the Recruitment & Engagement Coordinator and is very excited
about hiring quality CAREGivers for the agency. Although she moved from
Washington and is a new resident to Houston, she is not new to the in-home care
industry. Her 18-year career as a CAREGiver and supervisor in this field gives
her the experience needed for this leadership position.
Although Margi has worked in various supervisory roles
throughout her career, her passion is in human resources and she enjoys the
challenge of recruiting and selecting the highest quality caregivers. She also
enjoys managing the caregivers and the reward of developing strong
relationships with them. She is looking forward to becoming part of our
friendly, active staff and is excited to network in the community as well.
One thing she is not experienced in is being a grandmother.
She must learn to adapt to this role quickly, as her first grandchild was born
a few days after her arrival to Texas. Her daughter and son-in-law have lived
in the area for many years and she is excited to be near them. Being close to
her family was the primary reason for her move to Houston and she really enjoys
living here and working for Home Instead Senior Care.
As the Recruitment & Engagement Coordinator, Margi is
responsible for conducting applicant interviews ensuring that our organization
only hires the best CAREGivers. Once CAREGivers are hired, Margi conducts all orientations
and trainings. She is also in charge of organizing and facilitating our
quarterly CAREGiver meetings. In collaboration with experts on Alzheimer’s
disease, we created a training program called Alzheimer’s Disease or Other
Dementias CARE: Changing Aging Through Research and Education. Margi is
responsible for providing this training to all of our CAREGivers. She also
provides additional training on various topics ranging from arthritis to
diabetes. For all of our future clients, Margi works diligently to make sure
that the highest quality CAREGivers are employed by our organization.
