Candee VanDomelen, Client Care Coordinator
Candee discovered her passion for senior care when she served as the primary caregiver for her grandparents 11 years ago. She joined our team shortly after to continue caring for seniors. She was the very first person to go on call 24/7 so that we are able to address our clients’ needs around the clock. 10 years later, Candee now serves as our Client Care Coordinator. Her primary function is scheduling, but her favorite part of her job still is interacting with the seniors that we serve. In addition, Candee is primarily responsible for ensuring the smooth ongoing care of our clients. Other core responsibilities are in the hiring, training, scheduling, and performance evaluation of caregiving staff.
Candee attended college in Dothan, Alabama and returned to Michigan to marry her husband, Tom. She has three children and one grandchild and couldn’t love her family or her job more.
Hallie Rimmer, Administrative Support Assistant
Hallie has been a part of our team for 12 years. She considers this work to be more of a ministry than a job. Her service-based mindset shines through to all those she interacts with. She is a favorite in the field, and now Hallie brings her caring nature to the office administratively supporting every role. Hallie is also on call 27/4 to serve our clients any day and any time.
