In Memory - Cheryl Stawovy

Cheryl is the late co-owner of Oakmont's Home Instead franchise, and is one of the people responsible for bringing the franchise to Oakmont. In 2008, Cheryl and her sister, Kathi Lenart, purchased the franchise, which was located in a Monroeville office building at the time. One of their first decisions was to look for a more prominent, permanent home for Home Instead in Allegheny County's northeast suburbs. In 2009, they came across our current home on Allegheny Avenue in downtown Oakmont, and the rest is history.

Sadly, just a few years later, Cheryl would be diagnosed with Triple Negative Breast Cancer, a less common form of the disease. Despite her best efforts and a valiant fight, Cheryl lost her battle with cancer on January 11, 2013 at the age of 52. Cheryl left behind a loving husband, three children, several siblings and many friends at Home Instead Senior Care that are happy and honored to have known her.

After Cheryl's cancer diagnosis in late 2011, her employees and friends at Home Instead Senior Care - Oakmont organized several fundraisers to help her and others in the battle against  cancer. You can donate by going to the Cheryl Kay Foundation and donate directly in Cheryl's memory.​

Kathi Lenart - Owner

Kathi Lenart - Owner

Like so many other people, personal experiences inspired me to enter the senior care industry. After many years of living with an aunt and her family, a decision was made to put my grandmother in a personal care home. My mother did not agree with this idea, and she decided Grandma would come live with her. She worked from home in the family business and thought taking care of Grandma would be easy. She was wrong.

What Mom didn’t count on was being responsible for Grandma 24/7. She could not leave her alone, and so she was unable to do the things she typically enjoyed. Golfing, lunch with friends, nights out with Dad; all became things of the past. She felt like a prisoner in her own home. This became a stressful time for her and the rest of our family. Later, an ad in our local paper for a home care franchise caught our attention. Home Instead Senior Care could have provided the respite our mom so desperately needed. My sister, Cheryl, and I purchased the business in September 2008, and it was one of the best decisions we ever made! Every day we help people just like Mom.

Your Home Instead Senior Care team in Oakmont possesses a heartfelt desire to work with seniors in the community. It’s the reason why they were chosen to serve seniors and their families in Oakmont, Monroeville, Penn Hills, Plum, Fox Chapel and surrounding areas. See a full list of areas we serve. It is our ultimate goal to forge extraordinary relationships between our clients and their CAREGivers, and keep them living safely and happily in their homes for years to come.

Before coming to Home Instead Senior Care, Cheryl and I owned and operated a medical waste disposal company for 18 years.
