Ellen Mikolay, Client Care Coordinator

Ellen Mikolay, Client Care Coordinator Ellen worked as an Account Supervisor in Chicago before moving to 
Grand Rapids to raise her 4 children and care for her parents.  She meets with families who need assistance due to the challenges of aging, Alzheimer's, and Dementia.  Ellen helps them assess their needs and then matches them with caregivers that best fit their situation. Ellen joined Home Instead in 2014 after caring for both of her parents who had terminal illnesses at the same time. Through her personal experience, she understands how important respite help can be and enjoys working for a company she would have felt comfortable leaving her parents with. Ellen sees her position at Home Instead as the perfect union of her personal and professional experience. 

Jill Anthony, Scheduling Coordinator

Jill Anthony, Scheduling Coordinator Jill, our scheduler, works hard to make sure our client's ongoing  
needs are being met by caregivers who are best suited to them, 
both in training and in temperament.  Jill's view is that assisting 
clients in maintaining their independence is our primary focus. 
She goes beyond the physical care of our clients and strives to add 
to their peace of mind and enjoyment of life by pairing them 
with caregivers whose personality works best.

interviews, reference checks, criminal background checks, and 
drug screening on every caregiver she hires. She provides ongoing 
training to equip our caregivers with the skills required to help clients
remain in their homes with the utmost of dignity and independence.  
Lisa previously worked in Detriot for 4 years as a Foster Care and 
Adoption Specialist. After moving to Grand Rapids she worked for a non-profit agency, hiring behavioral aides to work with children who have developmental disabilities and acquiring a Case Manager position.
