Linda Murphy - Billing/Payroll

Linda first walked through the doors of Home Instead in May of 2004 and has come to consider all of us who work here, as well as our clients, as part of her extended family. Linda says, “Whether it's our clients, our caregivers, or my co-workers, someone makes you laugh or smile almost every day! It is quite gratifying to be involved with such a fabulous organization whose mission is to simply assist others with their needs.” An empty-nester, Linda resides in Bethlehem and enjoys spending time with her grandchildren.


Julie Kish - Client Care Coordinator & On-call Supervisor

Julie Kish - Client Care Coordinator & On-call Supervisor

​ It is a privilege to say that I have been with Home Instead Senior Care since 2004, working in various positions. As Client Care Coordinator and On-Call Supervisor there is joy and satisfaction in working with Clients and their families to make a difference in their lives and help them say in their homes…wherever that may be! I have lived in the Lehigh Valley most of my life. I am married and have two daughters, a son and a dog named “Ford”! My parents have recently moved in with my family, and we have all taken on a greater appreciation for what it means to “age in place”. The joys and the struggles of living as a family with multi-generations have allowed me to better understand and serve our families. As always, I am pleased to assist our seniors to remain independent in their homes as long as possible.

Bev was the very first Lehigh Valley Senior Care dba Home Instead CAREGiver! This was because she had been friends with the original owner's wife since high school!
All these years later, Bev says, “It has always been a pleasure to work here. I enjoyed working with clients because I am a giving person, and I like making new friends. I have experienced health issues myself.”
Today Bev serves as the Office Support Person which means she answers phones, prepares folders, prepares the monthly newsletters, and anything else that needs doing. Bev has two married daughters and three grand children who are the delight of her life. Bev also admits, “I consider my job here to be the perfect job for me!”
