"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.
Every day, all across America, families are struggling to cope. Many are raising children, working demanding jobs and trying to care for a senior family member. These Americans are often called the "Sandwich Generation", and they are growing in record numbers. That's because America is aging in record numbers.
By the year 2020, the number of seniors will equal the number of 20 to 35 year olds. Advances in medicine and healthier lifestyles will help seniors work longer and continue to lead more productive lives. But the numbers also tell another story. More and more children need to help care for their parents. These family caregivers eventually run out of hours in the day, the stress becomes too great and the balance is broken.
Meet our team below. We are committed to helping our local families and friends to meet the increasing demands of elder care.

Joline is a Mother of 6 wonderful children and 12 Grandchildren. After working in the banking industry for fourteen years she gave it up to take care of her mother who had cancer. Caring for her mother gave her a better understanding of what individuals and their families go through during an illness. While visiting her mother in the facility she'd love talking to the patients and seeing their faces light up. She felt like she was making a little difference in their lives. She loved talking with them and listening to the wonderful stories they would tell. So after her mother passed she decided to make a change. She started working as a CNA and later worked up to QMA in facilities.
After many disappointments with being short staffed and just not being able to give quality care she started looking for a way to work one on one with clients, she found Home Instead in April of 2013. Having over 15 years in Geriatric Care in facilities, specializing In Alzheimer's Care, and end of life care she was certainly an asset to our team. She loved working with the patients and had found not only a great job but a work family that has always been there for her. After a few years as a caregiver she decided she wanted to really get involved and make a difference, so she joined the office team as our CAREgiver& Client care Coordinator. She says she is finally in a position to make a difference in people's lives. Her compassion for the Clients and their family knows no bounds. She strives to make sure the Qqality of our service is unmatched and the CAREgivers know she is always there for them.
