About Us

Meet Our Team

Tonya Fusko - Owner/General Manager

Tonya has over 25 years in the healthcare related field and has resided in North Canton for 20 years. She started her career as an Admissions/Marketing representative for a local skilled nursing facility and most recently was the Executive Director for an assisted living facility. When the Home Instead Senior Care Franchise in North Canton became available to purchase and understanding that seniors are wishing to stay independent and in their homes as long as possible, Tonya felt this opportunity was the perfect fit for her.

Tonya enjoys traveling, golfing and riding her Harley, whenever the Ohio weather permits!
