About Akin Care
We’ve Been There.
After 15 years of caring for my parents, my husband, Laszlo, and I discovered that it was not only difficult to find caregivers, it was difficult to find consistently good quality care. And I didn’t just want good care for my parents, I wanted the best care.
That is how Akin Care Senior Services came to be. “To provide the highest quality, most compassionate in-home senior care to the elders of our community by matching them with our highly trained, professional and compassionate Caregivers.”
We work with you to ensure you, or the one you love, lives Independently and In control of their days, where ever they call home.
We provide a 100% guarantee of a good fit between you and your caregiver.
– Ann King-Musza
Our mission is to provide the very best care to the elders in our community so they can remain independent, in control, and in their homes. We do this by providing a 100% guaranteed fit with our highly trained, compassionate caregivers.
The Akin Care Team
I’ve been fortunate to have had a number of different careers; parent to two dazzling adults, Recycling Specialist, Strategic Partnership Specialist, wife to an exceptional husband, Executive Director of a nonprofit, and carer for my parents. I’ve come to the realization that, even outside my chosen employment, every job is about helping other people.
I could not be more proud of all the ways in which Akin Care assists people. Our mission is to provide the very best care for our clients and relieve some of the stress for their loved ones. This can only be achieved by our outstanding caregivers, the skill of our nurses, and the generous support of every staff person in the office.
It’s a privilege to be a member of the larger community of Princeton and the smaller community of Akin Care Senior Services.

I began my journey early on in the late 80’s as a teenage caregiver for my grandmother with dementia with absolutely no resources. In 1999, I was gifted the opportunity to begin working with seniors and made a promise to myself that if ever I could help a family who was struggling with caregiving, I would do everything I could to help. My journey through the last 24 years gave me experience in Assisted Living, Hospice, Home Care, Skilled Nursing, Elder Law, and Home Safety.
In 2011, I founded Caring Connections of New Jersey whose mission is to provide education to seniors, their families, and the professionals who serve them. CCNJ became a 501c3 Charity in 2018 and now I’m the Executive Board President. I consider myself lucky to work among the most compassionate health care professionals in the industry.
Today I am honored to teach the senior care professionals and families about Alzheimer’s Disease and Dementia as a Certified Alzheimer’s Disease and Dementia Care Trainer through the National Council for Certified Dementia Practitioners. I’m also a Montessori Dementia Care Professional and Certified Support Group Facilitator.
I joined Akin Care Senior Services as the Executive Director in June of 2023, and am impressed every day by the compassionate and empathetic office team here as well as the competent, passionate, Certified Home Health Aides that care for our clients every day. I could not ask for a better team!
Home Care Manager
My name is Tina Alvin. I am the Home Care Manager for Akin Care Senior Services. I started with the Akin Care Team March 2017. Our care team has come to know me quite well through daily interaction and some have known me prior to Akin Care. My experience in the Home Care industry started in 2001 once leaving Princeton Medical Center of 16 years.
The Medical field has been my passion since my early years. Life experiences steered me in this direction and through my interactions through the years, I have learned so much from so many. This journey has been very rewarding emotionally and mostly, spiritually, as I have developed many wonderful relationships with such compassionate human beings!
My original home state is North Carolina the Raleigh Durham area, known as the Research Triangle. There is so much that influenced my upbringing there and I am so proud to say this is where my foundation came from.
Fun time for me is anything around water! I love the beach! And for anyone who knows me, FAMILY is my priority😊
My name is Wanda Campbell, I have been working in the field of Home Care in some kind of fashion for over 15 yrs.
Working with Akin Care has given me an understanding of what it means to work with a team.
We all may not be perfect, but we are a perfect group that works together. By the way, the first voice you may hear on the other end of your call will be me answering with a smile. TEAM AKIN!
Director of Nursing
I am a 20-year resident of New Jersey and mother of three grown children. I have been a nurse for 40 years with 25 years of experience in Home Care. I have a love of Home Care because it is the real world and requires different set of skills than working in communities or hospitals. I get a lot of satisfaction from helping people manage and stay in their own homes. I came to Akin Care five years ago to work with Tina, our Home Care Manager, whom I have known for over 15 years. The staff here works as a team to meet the needs of all our clients and our small size allows us to know each client personally. The Home Health Aides here are caring and very experience and I would not hesitate to recommend any of them.
Client Liaison and Engagement Specialist
I’ve been in home care for 20 years as a general manager. I always dreaded promising a family something where I was at the mercy of other people delivering my promises. I consistently have been able to connect with families and what they are going through. I have a gift for being empathetic and bringing joy to those who need it. Here at Akin Care Senior Services, I fulfill the niche that is missing for each of my families. What I do changes based on the person with which I’m engaging. I act as a personal assistant, bring moments of joy, and help people maintain their independence through dementia enrichment and safety awareness. This helps the families have a peace of mind and relief in the most stressful of situations reminding them they are not alone. It is so fulfilling to work with a group of remarkably competent people who do their jobs and work as a cohesive team. It is my honor to be a part of Akin Care Senior Services.
Why a Ginkgo Leaf?
The Ginkgo has long been a symbol of longevity – one tree can live for a thousand years. It is also a symbol of, “profound endurance.” Six ginkgo trees survived the blast at Hiroshima and are still growing today.
