Her passion is to help people remain at home or have the best quality of life wherever they may call home. When an opportunity came along to join Home Helpers, Warf was a perfect choice as a business partner.
"Nancy and I talked about going into business together and Home Helpers, which is a leader in the industry, gives us the opportunity to combine our skills and work experience in a very effective way," Honan said. "Home Helpers is a high-quality home care company and the standards we set for our caregivers are extremely high. We want to make sure every member of our team is dedicated to providing the best care possible while sharing our vision for a family-focused company. I think that's what sets us apart."

She also has more than four years of experience in senior care and was a licensed LNA. She recently earned her PCA certificate. In addition to her professional experience, Warf brings a deep understanding of the importance of professional caregivers to Home Helpers.
"An immediate family member was diagnosed with terminal cancer two months after my wedding. I left my job of 13 years to be her main caregiver and, later, we added hospice. The need for in-home services is a real thing and I understand the true impact having a caregiver can make on families, whether it's full-time care or respite care. I know it's hard to bring in help but bringing in a caregiver can help ease the burden of doing everything yourself. This is better for everyone in the long run," Warf said.
