Kimberly Hosler, Director of Client Care

Kimberly Hosler, Director of Client Care

​A deep love for her grandparents led Kim to the Senior Care industry as a Licensed Social Worker after college. After the very first day of work in a residential care center, she was hooked on Senior Care! Kim later became a Licensed Nursing Home Administrator and worked in several facilities near Central Ohio. In 2008, after a 15-year hiatus as a full-time mom to her three children, she was hired by Home Instead in Granville, working at first in Recruitment, and later as the Community Resource Representative. It was an exciting time for her to be a part of the expansion of the Home Instead 550 office, but in 2012, she couldn’t resist the new opportunity to lead The Carr Center, (non-profit serving children with disabilities and medical services for older adults in Zanesville) as it’s Executive Director.

Providing service, support, and enrichment to persons with disabilities, in aging services, and to those in poverty was an extremely rewarding experience. This year, due to the changing needs of Kim's family, and especially the caregiving needs of her aging mother, she was excited to be offered the opportunity to re-join Home Instead as the Director of Client Care. She is so excited to be working locally again with this amazing team of compassionate individuals who daily make a difference in the lives of older adults.
