About Us

Meet Our Team

remy Grant,  Franchise Owner, Hamilton

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 firsthand 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 13 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.

Jessie Mitchell, Client Care Coordinator

Jessie has spent the last ten years working with individuals of all ages who have trauma, mental health, and psychological disorders, including disabilities that occur during the aging process. Her communication and interpersonal skills, as well as her experience in counseling and facilitating sensitive discussions, is valuable in managing the quality of care that Home Instead Care Proffesionals provide our clients.

Jessie has spent the past decade studying human behaviour and mental health, as well as having an article published on Mindfulness in the Workplace. She has also worked firsthand with multiple aging family members, who required physical support, and emotional support through the later stages of cancer.

Her expertise in trauma and crisis management can be especially relevant, as aging clients may be more vulnerable to experiencing traumatic events and may require specialized care to help them recover.

Jessie’s experience in counseling, facilitating, and collaborating with community organizations and agencies is valuable in managing the overall wellness of our Home Instead clients.

In summary, Jessie is a dedicated professional who works with compassion and heart to ensure that everyone she works with receives the best care and support possible

Twinkle Twinkle, HR Manager

I would like to introduce myself as a creative, innovative and health enthusiastic person. Since childhood, I have been taught that “HEALTH IS WEALTH”. I got fascinated by this thought when I found the little logic behind it that good health works as a fuel for carrying a blissful life and working efficiently.

Caring for people and helping others lead a fit and healthy life is so satisfying and essential to me that it has become my life's motto. This motivated me to join Home Instead as a Caregiver in 2018 as my first job in Canada which helped me grow professionally and enhanced my personal, and customer service skills. I have experience in different sectors of health care. I have been a caregiver, pharmacy assistant, Service Coordinator, Recruitment and Retention Coordinator, and now HR Manager at Home Instead. There is immense room for growth within the company and I am over the moon every time when say I work with such dedicated, hard-working people who are always happy to help, because at Homeinstead~"To us, It's Personal"
