“When the opportunity to buy a home care company in the Tampa Bay area presented itself, I knew this was a way I could make a difference in the lives of others. I am proud to say that our caregivers are of the highest caliber and are individuals that I would trust to care for my own mom and dad.”
As a management professional, Rachel is proud to be an integral part of such a dedicated staff. “I appreciate our loving caregivers and our passionate management team, who are persistent in trying to help our clients and caregivers. My favorite part of helping seniors is being able to give people the attention they need and deserve and being able to customize the care to each person for the best outcomes. I love when our clients’ attitudes change to be more positive because they can enjoy life with a friend.”
Kelli has worked in the healthcare field for four years, both as an in-home caregiver and as a Client Care Manager. "I took care of my grandfather, mother, and father-in-law. There is nothing better than to see seniors living happily and full of life. I believe God has me right here at Home Care Assistance and that I am fulfilling my purpose of helping others."
Zoe has worked in the healthcare field for eight years, both as an in-home caregiver and in facilities, and she is currently continuing her education in medical administration.

I enjoy learning from their experiences and knowing that we make a difference".
With a background in management and sales, Nick has a unique appreciation for our business model, particularly because we have a “small-company feel with the resources and brand of a multinational company.” He’s especially proud of the positive impact Tampa Bay Home Care Assistance has on seniors’ overall wellbeing. “I would hate growing older and losing my independence. The fact that we go out of our way to not only take care of people but also allow them to take care of themselves is incredible to see. I know that is the part I would appreciate the most if I were in that situation.”

She began her nursing career in an emergency department and provided critical care, patient teaching, and emotional support to clients of all ages. After completing her master’s degree in nursing education, Allison transitioned from bedside nursing to teaching medical surgical nursing to baccalaureate nursing students at a highly renowned college.
Allison’s favorite part of helping seniors is encouraging them to engage in fun, social, healthy activities with the help of their Home Care Assistance caregivers, and she loves getting out into the community to conduct caregiver supervisory visits. “During these visits, I get to know the client and can guide the caregiver to provide individualized, excellent care for each senior. My favorite part of Home Care Assistance is the awesome caregivers! They’re well trained, professional, compassionate, and safe, and they are making big differences in the lives of our clients.”

With over 20 years of experience in the Beauty & Service Industry, Renee brings a passion for serving others to our company. One of the things she loves most about Home Care Assistance is our natural, proactive approach to care. “The Cognitive Therapeutic Method we use has been proven to aide in slowing down cognitive decline in our seniors. It’s a great way for our Caregivers to get our clients to exercise their brain and it’s a fun way to spend their time together. I grew up playing cards and solving puzzles with my Grandparents, who are still enjoying their lives in their own home. It makes me very happy that we are able to make a difference in people’s lives.”
