About Us

Meet Our Team

Lisa & Ed Ganem, Co-Owners

Lisa & Ed Ganem, Co-Owners

​​​lisaganem​@homeinstead.com

Lisa and Ed Ganem opened their Home Instead Senior Care offices of Seacoast and Southern New Hampshire in 2002 after experiences in their personal life lead them to understand the many challenges that families face. Lisa's aging grandparents and the loss of family members, including the death of her father at an early age, prompted her to leave her career in finance. During this same time, they took in Ed's mother during her last years of life, as she alternated visits with Ed's siblings, to ensure she could remain at home and enjoy her children and grandchildren. Soon after these experiences, they realized their goal was to offer other families support by giving them the choice to allow their loved ones to age at home, wherever they may reside, with dignity and independence.

As a powerful, cohesive team, Lisa and Ed oversee day-to day operations, company standards and the overall management of their Home Instead Senior Care franchises. Their business acumen paired with their desire to promote a better quality of life for seniors allows them to successfully demonstrate their passion for serving the community. Ed works to ensure a personal level of service as he gets to know each new client and most often goes above and beyond the call of duty as he looks after the well-being of every client. While, Lisa works to get involved in the community as she serves on the Board of Service Link since 2005 and the Board of FOSI (Friends of Service Link), as Treasurer. Lisa graduated from the University of Massachusetts Lowell with a Bachelor's of Science in Finance. Ed graduated from University of Massachusetts Boston with a Bachelor's of Science in Criminal Justice.

Prior to Home Instead Senior Care, Lisa worked for many years as CFO for Harvard Translation, Boston Mass. This was followed by managing a 22 person financial consulting team for Managed Ops, Bedford, NH. She ended her corporate career as General Manager of North America for Exact Software based in Holland. During this same time, Ed worked in many capacities--spending most of his time forming a medical device manufacturing company with his brother but made a career change to join Lisa in her commitment to Home Instead Senior Care.

Kim MacLennan, Director of Patient Services

kimmaclennan@homeinstead.com

Kim came to Home Instead Senior Care in 2005. She is the Client Care Educator for Seacoast and Southern NH regions.

Kim Maclennan is the agency's most seasoned and experienced staff member having joined Home Instead Senior Care in 2005. Since joining the home care agency, her role has had many transformations. She currently serves as the agency's Client Care Educator, providing hands-on personal care and dementia care training for all CAREGivers. Kim began as a CAREGiver, joining the office staff as Quality Assurance Manager in 2007. It is her longevity within the organization that has allowed her to blend her CAREGiver and CAREGiver management experiences to provide dynamic and interactive training modules. It is her unique and creative approach that elevates the confidence and competence of all CAREGivers.

Kim's caregiving career started at an early age as she has always actively enjoyed and respected seniors. Visiting with the ladies in her grandmother's rest home was the beginning of her desire to become a nurse. Kim graduated from Concord Hospital School of Nursing in 1980 and worked as an RN for 12 years. Changing direction, she home educated her two daughters, at which time her senior father-in-law also came to live with her family. As soon as her children were grown, she found Home Instead Senior Care, where she continues to enjoy a very rewarding career.
