"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.
With a passion for helping her clients and their families, Polly is grateful to once again work in the field of elder care – which she considers to be her true vocation. Polly's affinity for elders began as a girl, interacting with her grandparents, as well as elderly family, friends and neighbors. Her 5 years spent as an independent caregiver in Connecticut formed her approach to care – keeping the value of individuals and their unique life experiences at the center. After a 14 year career in the health insurance industry, Polly has embraced her role as Client Care Coordinator; working with clients and families through Home Instead to ensure that in-home elder care is provided with integrity and heart.
Polly grew up in seacoast New Hampshire, and after living away for over a decade, she and her husband Dave relocated to the Lakes Region in 1998. Drawn to the area by its natural beauty and small town feel, Polly and Dave make their home in Tuftonboro where they enjoy hiking and snowshoeing with their dog Arlo, as well as time spent on Lake Winnipesaukee. Polly volunteers her time in support of town events and enjoys working at All Saints' Lord & Tailor Thrift Shop. She also supports area organizations such as Global Awareness Local Action (G.A.L.A.), the Lakes Region Humane Society, and the New Hampshire Special Olympics.
Judi's first caregiving experience started in 1981 when her mom moved in with her family. As her mom's health declined, Judi realized how difficult it is to juggle work and school as well as appointments for everyone. A year after her mom's death, Judi became a Hospice volunteer. The work with her Hospice friends/clients, the Emergency Bereavement Team as well as helping facilitate grief groups served to reinforce the importance of caring for others in respectful and dignified ways. Judi found her Hospice experiences fulfilling, and she felt honored to have shared time with the families involved.
Born and raised in northern NH, Judi moved to Wolfeboro in 1976 with her husband Mike and son, Christopher. Judi feels blessed and honored to work with the team at Home Instead after 35 years in the property/casualty insurance field. She recently combined households with her son and family and is enjoying all the activity that comes with it! The family camp in Errol, NH is a highlight for her when she is not working. Knitting, reading, walking and West African drumming are some of Judi's favorite past times.
Providing quality in-home care to seniors is something about which Judi feels passionate.
