Our Team

Leslie Cabral


A graduate of CSULB in Medical Microbiology, Leslie worked as a Medical Technologist for over 5 years, then in Medical Sales and later Regional Sales Director for over 10 years before opening the Downey Home Instead Senior Care office in 2003. Her passion for caring for seniors and their families only deepened when she took care of her own ill father until the last days of his life. She knows what’s needed to be a great CAREGiver as well as the compassionate needs of the client and their family. Leslie continues to be involved in detail with day-to-day operations of the office to ensure the highest quality care is provided to seniors in the community.

Linda Joco


​Linda is new to the Downey office but certainly not to the Home Instead family. Linda comes to Downey with over 10 years of Home Instead experience and 20 years of home health hospital experience. In her spare time, Linda likes to spend time with her family especially her two granddaughters. She is involved in several community associations and loves line dancing. Linda will be meeting with clients, CAREGivers and day to day operations. We are happy to have her on board.
