Dar Dahleen, Franchise Owner

Dar Dahleen, Franchise Owner

Dar - Grew up in Orland Park, Illinois. Dar is a CPA and has spent 25 years in public accounting as a manager and a trusted advisor to clients for many years. Prior to becoming a CPA, Dar received an Associate’s degree in Science from Moraine Valley Community College and a B.A. in Business Administration from Governor’s State University.

Dar’s first experience with Home Instead Senior Care came when she was working as a CPA for several franchise owners. From working with the owners, she had the opportunity to see the services Home Instead provides and the empathy that goes into caring for seniors. When the opportunity to own a HISC franchise became available, she seized the moment to make a difference. Dar’s main focus has always been on service for her clients and making sure their needs are met. She feels that HISC is the best way she can meet the needs of the seniors in our community to keep them independent and in their homes.

“I watched both of my grandmothers spend the end of their lives in nursing homes, one had dementia, and the other had several strokes that left her almost paralyzed, I decided then that I wanted to make a difference in the lives of seniors to keep them in their own homes. The need is so great for services like ours and there are not a lot of opportunities available to these seniors but now I can offer seniors an alternative that allows them to remain in their homes.”


Tricia Trendle-Marker, General Manager

Tricia Trendle-Marker, General Manager

Tricia graduated from Lewis University with a B.A. in Psychology. Ever since she began her career in psychology, she knew that she wanted to work with those that needed the most help: the elderly. Shortly after graduating in June 2011, Tricia became a CAREGiver with Home Instead. In March 2012, Tricia moved into the office as the Client Care Coordinator. In January of 2014, Tricia assumed the role of CAREGiver & Staffing manager, which requires her to oversee the schedules for all of our clients and CAREGiver and lead the recruiting and training for all of our compassionate CAREGivers. As a former CAREGiver, she understands the demands placed on the CAREGivers and the need for them to assimilate into the senior’s home, as well as the importance for the senior to feel comfortable with someone helping them around their home.

“After watching my mother care of my grandmother for my entire childhood, I learned that the elderly need an advocate. Society overlooks them, but they truly need a voice to speak out for them when they cannot and make sure they are getting the proper care needed to keep them safe, in their homes, and independent as long as possible.”


Diane Lemmon, Home Care Sales Consultant

Diane Lemmon, Home Care Sales Consultant

Diane joined our team at Home Instead Senior Care in June 2017. For many years, Diane worked as a hairstylist and built up a large clientele which included many seniors. She has engaged in building relationships with seniors over the past 20 years by singing for seniors at their events. Diane has a heart for seniors and enjoys helping them and being an advocate for them to be sure that they are well taken care of and have their needs met. Her grandmother had Dementia and Diane would go to the long-term care facility to interact with her and the other residents. It was during this time that she realized the importance of seniors having additional help when needed. Diane understands the importance of companionship for seniors and strives to make certain that every senior we serve, is cared for like family.


Joi Grady, Client Care Manager

Joi Grady, Recruiting & Engagement Manager

Joi joined Home Instead Senior Care in 2018 as a CAREGiver and moved into the position of Client Care Manager where she used her passion for helping seniors stay safe at home. Building on her many experiences gained in that position, she moved into the role of Recruiting & Engagement Manager where she finds caring people that share her love for seniors! Before joining the HISC team, Joi was a teacher for 20 years. During that time, she saw just how important familial relationships are to create bonds amongst generations. As her father aged, Joi discovered her new mission - caring for seniors. She left the educational field and helped care for her father, knowing that once he was gone, she would never get that time back. Joi strives daily to learn something new from the older generations.
