Victoria Badnard, Service Coordinator

Victoria finds the challenge of being the servicecoordinator enjoyable. With our average of 300 clients at any one time, she must schedule CAREGivers for each need that arises. She was inspired by working with seniors in her prior career as a stylist, and saw the opportunity to really help them in their lives as a natural fit.

"I like to keep them in their homes because it is a safe, familiar place where family can be available," she says. Matching the right CAREGiver with each senior is something she takes pride in.

"What Home Instead has to offer and how good our CAREgivers are is so inspiring."
