Jeremy Grant - Franchise Owner

Jeremy Grant - Franchise Owner

A couple years back while my grandmother was aging and suffering through a fall and the onset of dementia I had a first hand look at the strain caring for an aging senior can have on their loved ones. Even though my grandmother had 10 kids I could still see how difficult it was to be able to adequately provide the care she needed. During my 4 years with Home Instead Senior Care I have seen firsthand the difference a CAREGiver could have had to enable my grandmother to age safer and more comfortably in her home where she was comfortable. Through Home Instead Senior Care I look forward to now having the opportunity to help families in the Hamilton, Dundas and Ancaster area to provide the best possible care for their loved ones.

Barry Alkhamisi - Managing Director

I am very excited to join the Home Instead Hamilton team and draw from my past experiences in business operations, people leadership and facility (volunteer) management. One of my biggest passions is developing people and establishing a high level of customer service at all levels. The Hamilton area is a growing community and since recently relocating from London, Ontario it’s been a new challenge and at the same time rewarding in forming new connections. Growing up, listening, helping and supporting elderly ones has played an important part in my life.


Samantha Kerr, Service Coordinator

Samantha Kerr, Service Coordinator

You could say that caregiving is in Samantha's blood, because her mom is Registered Nurse and Samantha has always been interested in working with seniors. Samantha graduated from Humber College's Paralegal Education Program and has spent several years working in administrative and customer service roles. The Service Coordinator position is a perfect fit for her as she enjoys interacting with people, taking the lead and solving problems. She endeavors to build strong relationships with families and provide them with solutions to their caregiving needs. She has the same feeling towards our CAREGivers, and will ensure that she builds trust, takes the lead and shares her heart with each and every one of them.


Greg Bechard - Franchise Owner

Greg Bechard - Franchise Owner

Greg and his family have been involved with seniors in the community as long as he can remember. Growing up his mother worked and volunteered for various organizations including Meals On Wheels, Volunteer Visiting program and The United Way, and encouraged Greg to participate and support seniors in the community.

In 2002 Greg became a partner in the service firm Hetworth.  Between 2002 and 2006 Greg was involved with growing the business both in Canada and the United States and sold the business in 2006.  Although Greg did spend some time integrating the firm his real desire was to be an entrepreneur and operate his own business.  His next venture however was going to be one that truly gave back to the community.  That is what led Greg to Home Instead Senior Care where his passion is making a difference in the lives of seniors.

Greg graduated from McMaster University and is a Member of the Board of Directors of the Ontario Home Care Association in Hamilton.
