About Us

Cindy Eichling, Owner

Cindy Eichling, Owner

Cindy and Peter began their journey with Home Instead in December 2014. They had been researching in-home care companies, and it became clear to them that Home Instead Senior Care is by far the best in-home, non-medical care provider in the industry. They are thrilled to have an office for Home Instead in Wolfeboro both for their love of caring for seniors, and for the chance to invest in this region of New Hampshire.

Cindy and Peter have roots in the Lakes Region of New Hampshire dating back to the 1960’s. Peter began attending a summer camp in Alton, New Hampshire as a young boy, and he fell in love with the area. Peter and Cindy’s four daughters began attending the same camp in 1995 and have been coming back ever since. This area has grown to be a very important place for the whole Eichling family.

Cindy has a variety of work experience that has equipped her for this role. She volunteered in the children’s ministry of her church for 7 years and then proceeded to direct the Women’s Ministry at her church for the next 9 years. Cindy has a great love for working with people, and she sees the goals of Home Instead aligning with her goals of serving those in need.

In her free time, Cindy loves to spend time with her four daughters and their families. She also loves to read and explore all that the Lakes Region has to offer.‚Äč

Peter Eichling, General Manager

Peter Eichling, General Manager

Peter developed a real love for seniors by observing his parents shepherd elderly family relatives through their final years. His mother sadly died of Alzheimer's in 2006. Peter and Cindy, along with his extended family, were very involved in her care, with excellent and compassionate in-home care being the priority during these 11 difficult years.

After 35+ years in the computer industry, Peter is thrilled to work with Cindy in this rewarding endeavor. Now in its fifth year of operation, Home Instead Wolfeboro has provided over 61,000 hours of service to 181 seniors, and hired and trained 154 CAREGivers.

Peter's desire is that Home Instead accomplishes its stated vision each day: "Responding to the needs of seniors with Compassion and Integrity" and becomes known in this region as experts in "all things senior," showing excellence within its defined non-medical scope. He reminds our staff and CAREGivers regularly "Our focus is simple: Serve one client at a time and hire one CAREGiver at a time." And "We must live out our company's legal name, Integrity Caregivers of NH, by handling all matters and interactions with integrity."

Peter enjoys bicycling, reading, church ministry, and traveling to see his four daughters and their families, including his four angelic grandchildren.

Polly Jeffers, Client Care Coordinator

Polly Jeffers, Client Care Coordinator

With a passion for helping her clients and their families, Polly is grateful to once again work in the field of elder care – which she considers to be her true vocation. Polly's affinity for elders began as a girl, interacting with her grandparents, as well as elderly family, friends and neighbors. Her 5 years spent as an independent caregiver in Connecticut formed her approach to care – keeping the value of individuals and their unique life experiences at the center. After a 14 year career in the health insurance industry, Polly has embraced her role as Client Care Coordinator; working with clients and families through Home Instead to ensure that in-home elder care is provided with integrity and heart.

Polly grew up in seacoast New Hampshire, and after living away for over a decade, she and her husband Dave relocated to the Lakes Region in 1998. Drawn to the area by its natural beauty and small town feel, Polly and Dave make their home in Tuftonboro where they enjoy hiking and snowshoeing with their dog Arlo, as well as time spent on Lake Winnipesaukee. Polly volunteers her time in support of town events and enjoys working at All Saints' Lord & Tailor Thrift Shop. She also supports area organizations such as Global Awareness Local Action (G.A.L.A.), the Lakes Region Humane Society, and the New Hampshire Special Olympics.

Cia Spendolini, Scheduling Coordinator

Cia Spendolini’s appreciation for the needs of seniors has been lifelong. Influenced by her parents, who volunteered for Meals on Wheels, she spent many hours volunteering in nursing homes where she advocated for residents. Cia and her husband, Dan, cared for her mother in their home in her last years under quite trying circumstances. Because she understands the needs of clients and their loved ones, as well as those of caregivers, she works on their behalf with great compassion.

Cia has always loved animals. She became trained and certified as a pet groomer and, with Dan, established a successful pet grooming and boarding business in Connecticut. On that property, they happily raised Airedale Terriers and rescued and placed dogs and cats of all breeds in responsible homes.

After selling the business and recalling the joys of summers on Lake Winnipesaukee as a child, Cia introduced Dan to the Lakes Region of New Hampshire. She is delighted to have made Wolfeboro her forever home, where she lives with Dan, poodle Ava, dachshund Winnie, cat Mr. Missy, and cockatoo Mushpah.

Freddy, Chairman of the Board

Freddy inspires us by his overwhelming friendliness and compassion for people. He loves seniors and, in dog years, is over 90 himself. As he grows more fragile, we notice how careful he is when descending stairs, reminding us how important it is for our CAREGivers to help our clients avoid a fall.

From our research, we recently discovered that Freddy cared for his mother and father during their senior years. Come visit our office and Freddy will greet you and make your day!
