About Us

Meet Our Home Care Team

James Chalmers,  Owner and Managing Director

James Chalmers, Owner and Managing Director

Thank you for taking the time to visit our website and for your interest in our services. I was first introduced to Home Instead Senior Care when I started working at Home Instead Senior Care's Global Headquarters. I was the Business Performance Manager for the owners of Home Instead Senior Care offices throughout Canada and nine states in the U.S. Through these experiences I quickly realized how so many lives were being positively impacted by the flexible and customized services we could offer. At the same time, my family was caring for our grandmother who was diagnosed with Alzheimer's disease and the realities of caring for an aging loved one affected my outlook on how care could be delivered. Victoria and I knew we could play a critical role in caring for others and this aligned with our passions.

Every day we educate and inform families about our flexible services, how they can be customized, and about our team who is dedicated to going above and beyond to provide peace of mind and quality care to our clients. We share that we can help our clients and families take control of their care - on their terms. We want families to know that just as our business is family owned they can count on us to treat their loved ones as we would treat our own family.

Our company mission statement is "With care, compassion, integrity, and excellence, we will over-deliver." We seek to fully understand the emotions, challenges, and needs of our clients and families and take great pride in providing peace of mind through exceptional service. If you or a loved one is investigating senior care options please don't hesitate to call our office. We are more than happy to assist in any way we can.

Karin Ferrell, Operations Manager

​​My name is Karin Ferrell and I am the Operations Manager here at Home Instead Senior Care. I come from a fairly large family and growing up in a small town I was raised to always put others before myself. This shows up every day here at Home Instead Senior Care when we go the extra mile to make an impossible situation possible. Since the age of 13 when I started my first job in the customer service industry, I've always known that I receive the greatest satisfaction from helping others. As a single mom to 3 children and a dog, I understand how stressful life can get when it seems like the world is spinning out of control. Here at Home Instead Senior Care we help put the minds of our clients and family members at ease assuring them that we will deliver on the exemplary care that has come to be expected by us in our community. A large portion of my role is devoted to taking any inquiries regarding our services and to ensure those inquiring about service know that we care and are here to help. Call us today and I'm a happy to help in any way I can.
