We are the owners of Home Instead Senior Care located in Portland Oregon. For many years my wife and I both felt a very strong desire to not only one day own our own company, but to also find a path that would lead us to helping other people, guiding a team and most importantly, better our community. I had the wonderful opportunity to care for my grandfather for a little over 2 years while in college. That experience forever changed my life, an experience that ultimately led me to owning this rewarding business. During our amazing path and discovery of the Home Instead Senior Care business, Aimee and I have been reminded, almost daily, that this is our fate. Aimee has even coined our extraordinary journey and experience as our "Our God Moment". We feel we've found the perfect ingredients to our dream in this amazing opportunity with Home Instead Senior Care. Furthermore we full heartedly believe in Home Instead Senior Care and the Core Values established by the founders Paul and Lori Hogan.
We have also created our office "Vision" for our Portland location, we hope that it aligns with your desire and needs from an in-home senior care company.
We are so very blessed and love helping those that need us most, our seniors! To us, it's personal.Warmest RegardsPreston & Aimee
This is our wonderful Office Team. We are proud of the tenure we hold as well as the new faces! We wish we could get all of our wonderful CAREGivers in this picture too but we wouldnt be able to fit them all in one picture. To meet some of our CAREGivers go to our CAREGiver of the Month section!
Jennifer is our Business Development & Community Manager, and has worked for Home Instead Senior Care since 2008. She is responsible for educating our community on Aging related topics and ensuring others in the Health Care Community know of the resource that Home Instead Senior Care is.
I began working with seniors right out of college. First, with a home care agency, and then with hospice. My passion for seniors stems into my personal life, as I would visit my own grandmother weekly; a routine we kept until her passing in 2015. My son Bishop is now her namesake. While obtaining my degree in Social & Human Services I spent a lot of time with the homeless population, transitional housing, and troubled youth. I have a general love for people of any age and serving others.
When I am not working I love hanging out with my family, which includes our doggle (Beagle/Doberman mix) Samson! I enjoy camping, shopping, dancing, ANY arts & crafts and repurposing old stuff.

Growing up in Germany she remembers spending a lot of time at an Assisted Living that her family friends ran. She loved spending time with the residents and during that time she gained a deep respect for the generations that came before her. Right out of college, Martina took a detour from Eldercare and travelled the world as a Flight Attendant with Delta Airlines. However, her passion of empowering elders to age with grace and dignity could not be ignored. Martina returned to school to study Gerontology and Guardianship with the University of Washington.
With 2 children off to college, her husband, who is an Army Veteran, and herself decided to fill their empty nest with two very large dogs. Martina loves spending time with Athena who is a St. Bernard/Mastiff mix and Ruger who is a Great Dane/Cane Corso mix. They also love spending as much time outdoors as they can, either hiking or in their garden.

Karen is one of our Client Care Coordinators, and has worked with Home Instead Senior Care since 2006. She is responsible for Quality Assurance Visits, Client

to introduce them to our services. Her goal is to create the perfect
care plan for you or your loved one to ensure your independence in the
place you call home. I have lived in the Portland area
all my life and most of my family is still in the area as well. My
Grandma Ward was a big part of my life growing up, and in her later
years I was fortunate enough to help in caring for her when Alzheimer's
came into her life, and in turn ours. Grandma brought so many things
into my life, teaching me daily skills, how to be kind to others, how to
enjoy the simple things and many memories of the great lady that she
was. I truly love working with our clients. Seeing the smile on their
faces, listening to the stories they have to share and knowing we are
able to help them with their daily needs. When I'm not working I enjoy
spending time with my 2 children and weekend getaways to places in the
Northwest with my boyfriend Marc.
