About Us

Meet Our Team

Geoffrey Moore, Owner

Geoffrey Moore, Owner

Geoffrey opened the Home Instead franchise that serves the western half of Cuyahoga County in December of 1998. From the very beginning it was apparent that Home Instead's service was destined to become a much-valued option for seniors. Back then, having a local, professional, and caring provider that enabled seniors to remain in their own homes was unique. Of course, the desire of seniors to remain in their own homes and be independent has not diminished over the last two decades. More than ever, seniors and their families appreciate the attention to detail, individualized Care Plans, superb matching of clients and CAREGivers, and the responsive office staff they've come to rely on through Home Instead.

Prior to opening the Home Instead offices, Geoffrey worked as a Special Administrative Assistant at Kendal at Oberlin, a Continuing Care Retirement Community. He holds an MBA (Specializing in Healthcare Administration) from Cleveland State University. He also earned a Certificate in Gerontological Studies while finishing the MBA program. He is a graduate of Capital University.

Shannon, Client Care Coordinator, Training

Shannon, Recruitment & Engagement Coordinator

Shannon joined Home Instead Senior Care in 2006 after being a stay at home mother to her daughter. She developed a passion for helping seniors stay in their homes after witnessing the care her own family provided for her grandmother, who was diagnosed with Alzheimer's disease when she was just 60 years old. Shannon and her family enhanced the quality of life of Grandmother Glennie Bell for 13 years while she lived happily in her home with her husband Edward. This experience gave Shannon firsthand knowledge of the challenges families face when caring for a loved one. It is her hope that every family discovers that home care is often the best option for seniors. As our Recruitment & Engagement  Coordinator, she is eager to share her personal and professional experience with people who have an interest in enhancing the lives of seniors by helping them remain in their own homes.

Kathy, Staff Nurse, Training

Kathy, Staff Nurse, Training

Kathy was born and raised in Cleveland and joined our team early in 2016. Prior to graduating nursing school, she was a Home Health Aide for 10 years. Relying on her background as a nurse in hospice care, Kathy helps create Care Plans for our clients and assures our quality via in-home visits and consultations with families. Additionally, she is involved with the initial and on-going training of our CAREGivers. A strong proponent of home care, Kathy's commitment to our clients and CAREGivers is focused squarely on good outcomes. Through her knowledge, experience, and insight, we tailor our care such that our clients will remain in their homes for as long as they desire to stay.


Joan, Inquiry Specialist

​Joan, our Inquiry Specialist, brought her 20 years of experience creating cultures of superior customer care and responsive service for business and industry to her role at Home Instead.

In her former role here, as a Client Care Coordinator, Joan created individualized Care Plans for Home Instead clients and their families. Sensitivity to the challenges of aging, respect for person, and the desire to help them achieve the highest quality of life while remaining safely and comfortably at home was the foundation of every Care Plan she developed and monitored.

Joan parlayed her previous Client Care Coordinator experience into helping people making the initial step of learning about home care and how Home Instead can help them. By now, she's versed on nearly any situation or problem that impedes making a senior's life better. Contact her. She'll help you.

Katelyn joined the Home Instead office team in the Spring of 2022. However, she's no stranger to home care as she's been working with seniors in various ways for 17 years. At Home Instead, Katelyn works with CAREGivers, clients, and their families to create schedules that benefit our clients. Having worked in assisted living facilities from an early age (19), Katelyn knows that seniors don’t do well with change. Her role is to monitor our care schedules and keep the “bumps in the road” to an absolute minimum. To keep things running smoothly, Katelyn often introduces clients to our care professionals and periodically visits with clients and Care Pros in person in the homes of our senior clients.

Anne enjoys learning about the unique needs of each client and then discussing the details with the CAREGivers with the goal of keeping our seniors safely in their homes. In addition, Anne works with clients and insurance providers to ensure the best outcomes when clients’ long-term care insurance policies are involved.

Darlene started her career at Home Instead as a Care Pro. However, having been a Licensed Practical Nurse for 15 years prior joining our team, we decided to use her skills and talent to lead our Quality Assurance program. Her focus is meeting with our clients to make sure they are happy with all aspects of our service.

Darlene uses her skills as a nurse to re-assess the status of our clients and modify their Care Plans when necessary.
