Patty White’s very good friend was sure of one thing: Patty would do well as a Home Instead ® Care Professional at the award-winning Winchester franchise. Patty’s friend was right. Patty joined Home Instead in November 2021 and was honored as the office’s

Care Pro of the Month in October 2022.

Patty is an awesome (and very humble) Christian who has thrived as a Home Instead Care Pro.


While she doesn’t wear her beliefs on her sleeve, Patty is not afraid to answer the spiritual questions from seniors.
