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 10 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.

She spent countless hours growing up helping Nonna around the house. You can say she’s been caregiving since she was young!

Over the years, Christina has experienced the first-hand effects of Alzheimer’s and dementia, as her grandparents go through each stage and process of aging.

Christina loves the opportunity to give back to her community by ensuring our beloved seniors live the rest of their days as their best days, ensuring the perfect match is achieved for each family. Christina is here for you every step of the way, responsive, compassionate, and is always a phone call away!

Marianne started in health care at the age of 15. She grew up without grandparents of her own and thought she would adopt some of her own. She started at St. Peters hospital as a volunteer, helping seniors. She enjoyed it so much she decided to take the personal support worker course. After graduating Marianne worked privately for a wonderful senior couple for 15 years. Now she is a proud mother of two boys, 15 and 10. After some unfortunate life changes, she couldn't do the care she so enjoyed anymore. Turned out she could stay in health care in a position in management.
