"I am continually struck by the professionalism, high level of caring and exemplary caregivers that I have met from Home Instead. My mom couldn't live without them, and neither could I.
You know the story: When Torsten and Teresa opened Home Instead Senior Care in Richmond, VA in 1997, they were the only two employees. In fact, Teresa still held her job in medical sales while she also managed the operations and marketing efforts for Home Instead in those early years. Now, as the CEO/franchise owner, Teresa is focusing on ways to grow and expand our services. For example, her passion for and experience in the health care industry helped shape our 2012 pilot study on discharge planning for CHF patients, demonstrating the importance of home care in the prevention of hospital readmissions. And, as the industry continually shifts, Teresa is constantly positioning our home care services among families, physicians, social workers and other health care professionals as a means to keeping our senior community safe. With two active teens at home, Teresa is always running from one kid’s activity to the next…while also finding the time to pursue her love for long-distance running!
