Scott Johnson is the managing director at the Oakville office of Home Instead Senior Care. Scott has lived in Oakville with his wife Leslie and his daughters Ashley and Alex for 29 years. He earned a business degree from Ryerson University in 1981, majoring in information technology. Scott started his own business in 1989. His main focus in this business was computer system engineering and technical consulting. Scott became interested in Home Instead Senior Care due to his grandmother`s situation. His grandmother needed to move from her own home to a long term care facility at 99 years of age due to memory problems. Scott said, I often thought that my grandmother could have stayed in her home longer with the help of Home Instead Senior Care. Scott; however, is in a position to help other seniors in that same situation.
Joanne's primary focus is to maintain opportunities for the Oakville office by conducting Quality Assurance meetings, ensuring client/caregiver relationships are maximized, meeting with potential clients and their families, and following up on care issues. She creates appropriate care plans and collaborates with our staff coordinators to ensure our clients' needs are met. Joanne really enjoys meeting our clients and their families.
