Paula Wu,  Co-Owner

Paula Wu, Co-Owner

​Paula attended undergraduate school in a city they now service through their Home Instead office—Walla Walla, Washington. She moved to Loma Linda, California, finished her Master of Physical Therapy degree and began her career as a Physical Therapist in the acute rehabilitation unit of the Kaiser Permanente Medical Center in Fontana, California. While she didn't know it at the time, Paula was gaining invaluable insights into the need for the continuation of quality care once her patients returned to their homes. This outside perspective of the very real and personal inner needs of those seeking the kind of care Home Instead provides is just one of the ways in which Paula brings a superior level of homecare to seniors.
