Pam Howland

Pam Howland - Compliance and Emergency Management Plan

Caregivers come from a variety of backgrounds: military, teaching, nursing, moms returning to the workforce, legal assistance, and many more. Whatever the background, we bring art and science to caregiving. Art to share our love of music, crafts, cooking, and reading to enhance a client’s life. Science to continually learn proper techniques that ensure the safety of a client and help them navigate technology. My background in performing helps me inhabit a client’s reality. I sing 30’s, 40’, and 50’s songs to soothe them when they’re anxious. Computer consulting and training background allows me to help them get a better understanding of technology. Administrative compliance responsibilities allow me to use my work experience to keep up to date on regulatory, emergency management, and Home Instead policies and procedures. But, still at heart a caregiver, I find great joy in being empathetic to fellow caregivers’ needs and being able to guide them through their caregiving journey.

As well as an extensive IT background. He’s the ultimate team player who is responsible for all of our CarePro skills training, and CPR. Rob believes he is here to serve his fellow man, and Home Instead has helped him to continue to put “service before self”.

Jax 1

Jax Resto, Recruitment Retention Coordinator

I started with Home Instead in 2016. Having first been a Care Pro, I gained a true  understanding of how rewarding and at times challenging it can be to care for a  senior. Now, I apply this knowledge when hiring and training new Care Pros. It is  my honor and pleasure to meet and train people who are so passionate about  caring for others. No matter how much training they have, only their innate  compassion can truly make them great Care Pros.


Kolbie Ward, Client Service Coordinator

Kolbie recently joined the Home Instead team as the Client Service Coordinator and has almost 3 years of experience doing so. He was born and raised in the Venice area and his family is still deeply rooted here today. His interest in home care began in 2019 when his older sister informed him that she was going to attend nursing school to make a change in people’s lives. He plans to follow in her footsteps but is currently in college to obtain a bachelor's degree in business administration, having completed the first 2 years on campus at Flagler College and the remainder of his degree being fully online at the State College of Florida. Kolbie comes from a close-knit family that is well-known for helping others by lending a helping hand which has made him who he is today. While he's been in college for business, Kolbie obtained his CNA license in 2020 and began working with elders in facilities before switching to home care. He has always had a passion for helping the elderly and providing them with life enrichment as they begin to lose their independence and abilities. Kolbie states that “working in home care has been the most rewarding decision I’ve made in my lifetime. It brings me great joy and gratification assisting the elderly with tasks that will allow them to stay in their homes.”
