responsible for hiring, training and retention of our CAREGiver team. “As a previous Caregiver, I know it takes exceptional people
who love and enjoy seniors to be good Caregivers. It is my goal to make Home Instead Senior
Care stand out above the rest by hiring and training our Caregivers to give the
highest quality service to our clients.
I believe it can be a rewarding experience for both the Caregiver and

as I would if they were by own parent or grandparent. I enjoyed listening and
learning from their past memories as they shared them. I tried to make each day happy and fun, and

it is my passion to find Caregivers who have a servant’s heart for seniors.”
