Our Team

Meet our team of caring, compassionate professionals, dedicated to providing you and your family the best in-home care and support for your individual needs and preferences.

Jasmine Hopcraft & Chris Dawson


Jasmine and Chris established the Home Instead Senior Care office on the Central Coast in in 2012.

Having experienced the care needs of their own parents, whilst bringing up their own young family, Jasmine and Chris were excited by the challenge of launching a new very personal in-home care service and nurturing its growth to extend services Metro-wide in Gosford and beyond.

"So many of our friends have parents who have retired in the region - not a single one of them wish to leave their homes. We know there is a real need here for quality services that are flexible and tailored for each person. Our CAREGivers can help seniors maintain their quality of life, in their own home and give their families the peace of mind – knowing their loved ones are safe and independent."
