Jacinda Wellhouse, Client Care Coordinator

Jacinda is our Client Care Coordinator for the Beaver Dam Office.

Jacinda has been working with the senior community in their homes for more than 10 years. Starting at home caring for her mother, then working for a private client before finding an agency to work with as a caregiver which only lasted a short time before being promoted to a Client Care Coordinator/ Scheduler. She held that position for nearly 3 years before coming “Home” to continue to serve her community and the seniors around her as Client Care Coordinator for Home Instead.

Outside of work Jacinda enjoys spending time with her family including her many nieces and nephews, taking extra special time to savor every moment with her infant daughter Olivia; and keeping her cat Charlie out of trouble. Jacinda also likes exploring the Horicon Marsh with her family, dabbling with her designs in fashion, and helping her grandmother in the garden. 


Kat Tweed, Scheduling Coordinator

Kat is our Scheduling Coordinator for the Beaver Dam office.

Kat has almost 15 years of experience working with seniors. She started off as a caregiver for her parents immediately after graduating from UW- La Crosse with a B.S in Philosophy and English. Together they navigated through medication issues, health concerns and management of Alzheimer's. When the level of care became too great the family brought in an agency like Home Instead to help. That was when Kat moved to caregiving as a profession. She started out as a CAREgiver in a franchise in Illinois. She and her husband moved to Wisconsin in 2014 and she joined the Beaver Dam office as a CAREgiver for 4 years before accepting a position to hone her scheduling skills. She is now back "Home" again and ready and willing to help out wherever needed.

Kat ironically spends a lot of quality time with her 2 cats and her husband, Jose. They dabble in culinary arts with a focus on locally produced goods and love spending time in the community experiencing all the region has to offer.
