Home Care Providers Team in Hartford, CT
Indy Edwards, Owner
Indy has devoted the past 30 years of her career to providing exceptional care to clients in their homes. First, as a visiting nurse, a role which gave her invaluable insight into how people thrive when they can remain at home, and most recently as Vice President for a national home health company, Indy is an accomplished leader with a flair for developing collaborating teams that work together to provide comprehensive in-home services.
Indy understands the complexities of coordinating care. Her passion is to ensure her clients receive the kind of personalized attention and results that enable them to remain safely in the comfort and familiar surroundings of their own homes. In her experience, both personally and professionally, she has seen time and time again how people heal and thrive when they can remain at home. She has also seen what can happen when, during times of transition, communication fails, and the client’s wishes are not honored. Stepping back from corporate culture Indy has chosen to focus on what she loves most; providing compassionate care and personalized service.
Indy attended Michael Reese Medical Center School of Nursing in Chicago and Emmanuel College in Boston. She lives in Canton, CT, and enjoys spending time with her husband and son, two Huskies Nakita and Clover, and their two Great Danes, Remi, and Zoe.
Talem Home Care - Hartford - Avon's Team
As the Administrator of Talem Home Care, I bring over 25 years of Human Service and Healthcare Supervisory, Business Management, and Leadership expertise to my role. The last 16 years of my professional career have been dedicated to Home Health Care with multi-site operational experience for a national Home Health and Hospice Company.
I experienced first-hand the many challenges and heartbreak of caring for a loved one at the onset of illness through the end stages of life while caring for my mother when she was diagnosed with Dementia. As my Mom’s health declined, I coordinated all aspects of her care, and she and our family were able to honor her wishes to be kept safely at home surrounded by her loved ones until her death in 2018 - “ the experience of losing my mother to Dementia and enduring the difficulties, frustrations and roller coaster of emotions that come with this experience has been life-changing.”
As a result, I made the decision to leave a successful career as an Area Director of Operations to partner with Indy Edwards and join the team at Talem Home Care. I am committed to drawing on my experience and resources to help Seniors and their families in need. I am also focused on assisting Talem to become an Employer of Choice within the community.
I am a native of West Hartford and a graduate of Northwest Catholic and the University of Saint Joseph. I reside in West Hartford and enjoy spending time there with my son, husband, and our Golden Retriever, Summer.
