About Us
Meet Our Team

Mindy Sheehan, Owner and General Manager

Mindy Sheehan, the Owner and President of Home Instead in Duncansville, PA, is deeply committed to providing exceptional home care services to seniors in Blair, Cambria, Bedford, and Huntingdon counties. With a robust background in senior-level Human Resources Management and Consulting, Mindy recognized a growing need for elderly care in her community and has made it her personal and professional mission to empower seniors to age in place with the dignity and support they deserve.

Mindy's dedication to senior well-being is not just a business endeavor; it's a personal commitment rooted in her love for her grandmother and parents. She approaches each client with the same care and attention she would provide to her own family, ensuring that they receive the highest quality of care. Mindy and her family reside in Duncansville, where she actively engages in community service and wholeheartedly supports her sons' sporting activities. Her passion for animals is evident through her three furry companions, who frequently visit the Home Instead office, fostering a warm and welcoming environment for both clients and caregivers.

Mindy Sheehan's leadership and genuine passion for enhancing the lives of seniors and their families set Home Instead apart as the preeminent home care agency in the region. Through her unwavering dedication and hands-on approach, she addresses the unique challenges of aging, consistently delivering exceptional care to those who aspire to maintain their independence within the comfort of their own homes.

Nicole Gioiosa, General Manager

Nicole, affectionately known as 'Niki,' has been a valued member of the Home Instead team since March 2023. She is a passionate and dedicated individual, always eager to expand her knowledge and make a positive impact on the lives of those in her community and workplace. As a mother of four, Niki is no stranger to the fast-paced demands of the home care field, where time and compassion are crucial. On a personal level, she intimately understands the vital role that Home Instead plays in the lives of clients and their families. After a serious illness, Niki's mother was released to come home, but her family couldn't provide the round-the-clock care she needed. The sense of security and relief that Niki and her family felt when CAREpros entered their home to provide care is an experience that has left an indelible mark on her. It's a feeling she is committed to imparting to other families and clients in their time of need, driven by a deep and personal understanding of the significance of quality home care.

Dusty Kunstbeck, Assistant General Manager and Client Care Consultant

We welcome Dusty as the newest member of our team. Dusty was an RN for many years before entering the private sector in both sales and management.

Barb Faretta,  Service Manager

Barb Faretta, Service Manager

Barb has been with Home Instead Senior Care since 2012, and oversees the complicated process of coordinating client and CAREGiver schedules. Barb also works with Accounts Receivable and On-Call activities. Because of her strong belief in the Home Instead motto, "To us, it's personal," Barb was instrumental in establishing the "Share Your Heart" program, which encourages clients, family members, or fellow employees to catch our CAREGivers going above and beyond to provide excellent care. This can be anything that makes a special impact on the client or their family - from acting quickly in a life-saving situation, to simply taking the time and initiative to do something especially meaningful for the client.
