Jonna Wisnieski, Business Owner
​​Jonna has a heartfelt desire to work with seniors in the communities she serves.  Personal experiences with clients and clients' family members motivate her to hire top-quality office staff and CAREGivers who are trained to provide services that exceeds clients' expectations.
After nearly 2 decades in marketing and sales, Jonna decided to focus her energy on serving seniors in Marshall, Jasper, Poweshiek, Marion and Mahaska counties.  Her role at Home Instead is to provide leadership, promote Home Instead Senior Care in the community, plan community service projects, and create greater public awareness of senior issues, challenges, and needs.
Some of Jonna's most cherished childhood memories involve spending time with her grandma and great grandma at their rural Nebraska grocery store.  Roller skating around the aisles, stocking shelves on delivery day and triple-decker Cheez Whiz sandwiches for lunch are still vivid remembrances.  Time spent with her grandpa on the family farm picking sweet corn, riding the horse and drinking Shirley Temples are fond memories, as well.
Jonna has been married to Jeff Wisnieski, her childhood sweetheart, for 22 years, and they have three children ranging in ages from 13 to 19.

​Jeff has true passion for helping seniors.  With Jeff's previous work experience in wound care and medical equipment sales, he has had the privilege of working with the elderly in our communities for many years.  His passion started at an early age.  His fondest memories as a child where sitting with his grandmothers and listening to the stories of his family.  He feels very fortunate, since both his grandmothers have lived well into their 90s. Listening to the struggles and challenges they experienced, and how they took joy in the simple things has helped shape who he is.  His love and respect for the senior community was formed listening to these stories.  He now has the honor and privilege to give back to this community.  Jeff spends his days in the community providing educational programs to the senior community at senior centers, assisted and independent living communities.  He also spends time in nursing homes providing entertainment for the residence with old time radio and TV programs.  "I am truly blessed to be able to wake up everyday excited about what I do.  We have put together an incredible  team of office staff and caregivers that have a true desire to help the seniors in Marshall, Jasper, Poweshiek, Marion and Mahaska Counties"

​Jonna was lucky enough to grow up knowing six of her eight great grandparents, so respecting (and enjoying!) seniors was a part of her life from the start.  Family was always and continues to be a huge part of her life.  Because spending time with seniors came so naturally to her, she also started volunteering at an adult day care center when she was in the 5th grade -- playing games and simply being a good listener when the staff was unable to spend one-on-one time with the clients.  Jonna's duties at Home Instead Senior Care include finding, hiring and training our professional team of CAREGivers.  She feels that it is the quality of our CAREGivers that set us apart from our competitors, so hiring individuals who are caring, dependable and truly love seniors is her top priority.  Providing top-notch people with the most extenseive training in the industry has built our amazing team of CAREGivers!​​

Office Manager: Rhonda Miller
​​Rhonda developed a burning to desire to help seniors through delivering groceries to their homes.  As her relationships with her customers grew, she saw a serious need for home care and companionship.  “Seniors, who are homebound, are lonely.  They still want to keep their independence and take care of themselves but physical ailments have limited their lifestyle.”   When Rhonda saw the help wanted ad for Home Instead, she immediately went to apply.  She was impressed with Home Instead’s passion for improving the quality of life for seniors and families in their communities.
 
Rhonda ‘s favorite childhood memory of grandparents  was her maternal grandfather threatening in Dutch to send her father to jail.  She couldn’t understand a word he said but it always made her laugh. And nothing beat her paternal grandmother’s hot fudge sauce!
 
Rhonda’s role at Home Instead is making sure the office is running smoothly.  This includes helping with the scheduling, payroll, newsletters, website and bookkeeping.  She enjoys interacting with the clients and CAREgivers.
