About Us

Meet Our Team

Roger and Pam Boles, Owners

Roger and Pam Boles, Owners


Pam and (Roger Boles - dec 2022) made the Shenandoah Valley their home in 2010 when they became co-owners of Home Instead Senior Care-Verona. Roger sadly passed away in September 2022 of cancer. He was a bright and joyous spirit in the office and community. They enjoyed over 41 years of marriage and together have three grown sons, Stephen, John, (who is currently our General Manager), and Ethan. They have been blessed with nine fun grandchildren: Eli, Zoe, Noah, Gabriel, Luke, Dan, Selah, Justice, and Wyatt.

Roger started a career in healthcare soon after college and had spent many years specializing in the area of Dialysis. Roger's extensive management experience with growing companies was very important as our organization expanded to serve the needs of the surging senior population here in the Shenandoah Valley. An important legacy which he wholeheartedly supported is our commitment to extensive Care Professional training and Quality Assurance programs.

Pam fulfills many roles as the owner of the three-county wide franchise. She is carrying on their commitment of providing a source of support, both to new Care Professionals fulfilling their first assignments as well as to daily operations within the office. She also teaches the EssentiALZ Alzheimer's training. Her background in education along with her empathetic skills make her well suited to the tasks!

Pam and Roger have always enjoyed life and the love of their family, church, and friends. After spending time with her children and grandchildren, Pam enjoys shopping and soaking in the beautiful views of the Shenandoah Valley.
