Jackie joined Home Instead Senior Care as a CAREGiver in October 2017. She received her RN from Luzerne County Community College followed by a BS in Rehabilitation from Penn State University. Working with special needs clients, seniors, and of course, life experiences, has allowed her to grow and share her passion of caring for others - a most vital act for the age we live in today. Caring is two-fold for Jackie. It comes with not only grief, difficulties, and sadness, but also with a sweeter level of love, sharing, and giving of herself. This is a choice. She finds it keeps her developing greater inner resources for seeking a higher expression of understanding in her personal and professional life.
Jackie believes a true CAREGiver knows the most effective way to act upon the universe is through example: attraction rather than promotion. Being willing in mind and spirit is a process she embraces-- a process that can work within the most delicate nature of our soul. From her first interaction with Home Instead Senior Care staff, she felt at home.
Life in its fullest brilliance is a reciprocal endeavor-- a labor of love. She feels her position with Home Instead Senior Care, Erie, gives her a compass. It allows her to follow her desire to help, care for, and nurture to the ends of clients' expectations. Being present, being in the moment, helping clients and their families make the best, and at times, difficult decisions is critical. Providing an objective evaluation on an individual basis is where she feels the spiritual force of her responsibilities. She challenges herself to ease families' burdens, provide information, and keep the Home Instead promise to assure our clients' needs are met. To Jackie, it's personal.
