 Jamie Summerford (Office Administrator) has lived in Raleigh for 25 years.  She is the mother of 3 sons (ages 11, 14 and 19) and they have a very special rescue dog, named “Callie.”  Since two of her sons play Lacrosse, you will always find her on the sidelines, cheering them on. (In her spare time, Jamie has a love of antiques and estate sales).  She is responsible for ensuring that the administrative activities within the office run efficiently, by providing structure to other employees throughout the organization.


Dianne Ferguson (Client Care Manager) is a graduate of Penn State University, with a Bachelor’s Degree in Law Enforcement and Corrections.  She and her family moved to Raleigh, from New York City, in 2011. With almost 16 years’ experience in Home Care Administration, she became involved in the industry after having the opportunity to care for her own father, who had Alzheimer’s disease.  She loves spending time with her 2 awesome daughters and one amazing granddaughter.  (Tapping out a new Crime Thriller on the computer is how she spends her spare time).



Mary Potter (Marketing & Sales Director) for Home Care Assistance. Mary first experienced caregiving when her mother needed help after being diagnosed with Dementia. She watched first hand as many families do, as her mother’s disease progressed into Alzheimer’s. At each stage along the way, extra hands were needed for her care and she observed how the right care giver made all the difference in her mother’s care. When Mary met the owner of Home Care Assistance she knew she had found her calling. The core value’s at Home Care Assistance, “Mind, Body, and Spirit” are the same core values she noticed that made a difference in her Mother’s care giving. She is thrilled to be a part of the team and looks forward to providing the same five star service her Mother received from her care givers.


  Ashley White (CNA/Administrative Assistant) is a Certified Nursing Assistant and is currently, in school taking classes towards her nursing degree.  She is an East Caroline Pirate alumnus with a degree in Economics. When she’s not in classes, she is physically caring for a few of our clients (all who love and appreciated her care, immensely) and in any spare moments, she can be found in the office, providing any necessary administrative assistance, to the owner.  She has the sweetest dog named “Bo.”

Our Team at the Alzheimer's Walk



Mary Jane Wands, RN joined our team in February of 2014. She came to us with many years of experience in Nursing. Her heart is in caring for clients who wish to stay in their homes to recover from an injury or have a chronic disabling condition that limits their ability to care for themselves. She has a vast knowledge of what is expected of a home care provider as she worked for the State regulatory entity for over 10 years licensing agencies to provide care and monitoring the delivery of client care.

Mary Jane has been the director of nurses for a home infusion therapy company and worked as a field RN in home health to keep her skills active throughout her career. Personally she has a wonderful gift –her aged Mom is living with her, and reminds her everyday how important it is to have love, compassion and caring knowledge of the needs of the frail and elderly.
