Tracy Mitten, RN, Owner and Director of Client Care

A passionate nurse for over 30 years, Tracy knew from a young age she wanted a career where she could make a positive impact in peoples’ lives. Throughout her career, Tracy has worked in a variety of nursing fields, including nephrology (providing hemo and peritoneal dialysis) and chronic disease management.

Most recently, Tracy has spent the last 10 years working in a geriatric outreach program and with Behavioural Supports Ontario managing behaviours associated with dementia and other neurological conditions for individuals living in long term care. Through this experience, Tracy witnessed the challenges families face in caring for their aging loved ones first-hand, and clearly saw the need for improved in-home senior care. Tracy is excited to make a difference in the lives of seniors and their families and believes Home Instead’s mission aligns directly with her vision for enhancing the lives of older adults. She is a graduate from Ryerson University’s BSc. N program, which she completed part-time while raising a family of three children

Leanne Sealey, RPN, Client Care Coordinator

Leanne has always enjoyed helping those in need which is what motivated her to work in the healthcare industry. She has been nursing for several years with experience both in the community providing medical care for seniors and at a children’s rehabilitation hospital in various roles. Most recently Leanne worked at that hospital as a clinic coordinator which allowed her to continue to serve patients, but in a capacity where she helped organize their plan of care and was able to spend more time with the families. She loved taking on a leadership role with patients and found the perfect opportunity to continue doing so by joining Home Instead. She was also very excited at the opportunity to serve our senior population in Markham where she grew up. As our Client Care Coordinator, Leanne is focused on ensuring our client’s receive the highest quality service. She is involved in overseeing every aspect of the client’s care including conducting the original assessment and designing the initial care plan, performing ongoing quality assurance visits, and working collaboratively with clients, families, and our CAREGivers to ensure all needs are being met. What she loves most about her job is being able to come up with creative solutions to solve whatever problems her clients might be facing. When Leanne is not hard at work she enjoys spending time with family and friends, trying new restaurants, or spending time watching Netflix

Allana Jeyasakunthan, Recruitment and Retention Coordinator

Family has always been an important aspect of Allana’s life, so it was only fitting her career has focused on supporting other families. After completing her undergrad in Sociology at McMaster University and a post grad course in Behavioral Sciences at Algonquin College, Allana worked as a therapist for children with Autism. She enjoyed this role and learned so much, but ultimately decided that her skillset would best be suited in the Human Resources field. Fast forward to her joining Home Instead, where she once again is supporting families, this time in a human resources capacity. As our Recruitment and Engagement Coordinator, Allana is focused on ensuring all our organization’s hiring needs are being met. She is proactive in recruiting, screening, hiring, training, and engaging a staff of Care Professionals to provide the highest quality service to clients and create a thriving work environment. Allana’s favourite aspects of her role are getting to know our staff members and building on our organizational culture. When she is not hard at work, you can find her spending quality time with family, watching the latest true crime series, or trying out new recipes in the kitchen.
