Jeremy Mitchell

Jeremy Mitchell

Jeremy joined the Gettysburg Home Instead Senior Care Team in 2011. He is the Client Care Coordinator. Before taking this position, Jeremy was a CAREGiver and Service Coordinator.

His first experience as a CAREGiver was personal, caring for his mother and father as they aged. After both of Jeremy's parents passed, he realized that being a CAREGiver is a rewarding challenge. Utilizing the experiences, and the training he received at Home Instead, Jeremy decided to advance his career in healthcare becoming a Certified Nursing Assistant in November 2011.  Jeremy worked in long-term care for 4 years, working specifically with individuals that had a diagnosis of a life limiting illness and those that were under hospice care. His experiences, and the knowledge he received from working with this population gave him the understanding that the single most important element of his work was his commitment to the individual. 

Jeremy was born and raised in Hanover, PA. He enjoys spending time with his spouse and their dog and 3 cats, cooking, gardening and reading.
