Ty Lacey

Tyson and Lacey Murphy, Owners

Inspired by their grandmothers, Tyson and Lacey Murphy opened their first Home Instead Senior Care office in Temple, Texas. In 2013, they purchased the North Austin territory, serving Travis and Williamson Counties to help seniors who want to remain safe in their homes as they age. Both are native Texans, Tyson is from Midland, and Lacey was raised in El Paso. Tyson and Lacey are blessed with 6 children, Haley, Alexis, Tori, Camille, Justin, and Gavin. They also have 2 grandchildren, Brynleigh and Lucas.

Tyson is actively involved with the Rotary Club of Round Rock, having served as President in 2019/2020. He also Chairs the Board at Senior Access. He previously served as President of the Home Care Association of America (Texas Chapter).  He is a private pilot and enjoys seeing Central Texas from a different perspective. Free time is spent with family on the family farm, playing golf, and traveling.

Lacey became a Le Cordon Bleu chef after graduating from Scottsdale Culinary Institute in 2001. She has served seniors in varying capacities. Creating menus with special dietary restrictions, preparing delicious meals, and following her passion for pastries, she makes delicious goodies for special occasions. Her true service to the seniors of Central Texas is her coordination of the annual Be a Santa to a Senior. Her efforts have touched thousands of seniors, volunteers, and the generous citizens that participate each year. Her greatest joy is being mom and grandma and spending time with family.


Jennifer Legalos, Director of Client Care

Jennifer joined the Home Instead family in 2014 after owning an Assisted Living Facility in Leander, TX.  Growing up in Missouri, she developed a love for seniors while spending time with residents at her family’s Nursing Home.  Jennifer earned a BA in Psychology and Sociology from DePaul University in Chicago.  With over 20 years of experience guiding seniors and their loved ones through the ageing process, Jennifer is dedicated to improving the lives of seniors every day.  Her ability to develop genuine relationships with families and CAREGivers, her proactive approach to care, and knowledge of the senior care industry has helped her make a positive difference for everyone she serves.


Jamie Morrisey, Recruitment and Training Coordinator

Jamie joined Home Instead in July of 2020. Originally from Western New York, Jamie moved to Texas in the spring of 2019, by way of Southern California. She comes to Home Instead from a background in temporary staffing & contingent workforce management. She earned a Bachelor of Science from University of Maryland Global Campus, concentrating on Social and Behavioral Science with a minor in Human Resources.  As a dedicated military spouse, she has lived in several states/cities across the United States, as well as Europe. She now lives in Leander, with her husband, 2 children, 2 cats, and 2 dogs, and is thrilled to call Texas her “forever home”.  Her favorite part about working for Home Instead is knowing that her time and efforts contribute to the overall wellbeing of someone else’s life and livelihood. In her free time, Jamie enjoys camping, attending her children’s sporting events, weekend adventuring, river floating, and Buffalo Bills football.
