Dana Powell Isaacs, General Manager
My career in healthcare began at the age of 16, working as a Pharmacy Technician after school and on summer breaks. Since then I have logged 25 years of experience in patient care. After graduating from Nursing School, I went into Critical Care/Trauma Nursing. Recognizing that many of the hospitalizations that I encountered were preventable, and certain I had been called for a higher purpose, I stepped out of the hospital setting and dove nose deep into Home Health. I spent the next 7 years as a Director of Nursing for a Medicare Home Health Agency. With my steadfast commitment to quality care and preventative advocacy, I lead my team to significantly reduced hospitalizations and measurably improved outcomes for those we cared for. These triumphs were never done by my team alone, and Home Instead Senior Care was always a community resource that we referred to. Working collaboratively for so many years with the amazing talent of Home Instead Senior Care, it is an honor and my pleasure to continue my career as General Manager for such a wonderful company. Enhancing the lives of our seniors, their families, as well as our team of amazing CAREGivers is truly rewarding.
When I am not working on providing exceptional care to our clients, being a resource to their families, or instilling a culture of excellence to our amazing team, I enjoy spending time with my wonderful husband, Chris, and our beautifully blended family. We have 5 incredible children between us, Anthoni, Ryan, Nicolas, Mackenzie, and Ava. I enjoy spending time Downtown Ocala, visiting Disney World frequently(maybe a little too much), and taking impromptu trips where ever the wind blows. I truly believe in Work-Life-Balance, and I try hard to practice that every day.
