Esther Bieber - Client Care Manager

Esther has a total of 6 ½ years of experience working as a Registered Nurse in France and in the UK. She brings this knowledge with her into her role as our Client Care Manager. Esther is a fantastic addition to our team! In light of her parents aging, she recognizes the need for support in order to allow Seniors to stay in their homes, in their familiar and comforting environment. Esther loves working at Home Instead and enjoys the challenge of coming up with ideas and solutions with her co-workers in order to provide great personalized care to clients (...all around a cup of coffee, of course!) She has a lovely husband, 4 kiddies and a puppy that keep her life happily full!
