"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.
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!
