Meet Our Team

Betty Phillips, Owner

Betty Phillips, Owner

​Betty took a summer job working in a nursing home immediately out of high school before she went off to Ohio University to study Medical Dietetics that fall. She developed her passion for helping Seniors and became aware of the challenges they face with rehabilitation, isolation, moving out of their homes., family dynamics, the progression of geriatric disease and ailments but also the joy and vast experiences they have to share with those willing to listen. She worked at the same nursing home every summer and after graduation for a total of eight years. She continued her education in senior care by attending Franklin University to further her knowledge in Healthcare Management and Administration where she expanded her scope into managing a Senior Care facility. Betty found Home Instead Senior Care through a couple of local owners who educated and marketed the services to her for her clients and she thought "That's it, all these seniors need is a little help at home, and they can stay home forever." She started her Home Instead Senior Care September 1, 2008. Betty is married and has two adult children. The love of her life is Preston her 8-year-old Springer Spaniel who does come to the office and spend the day occasionally.

From managing the schedule and training CAREGivers to working in the Human Resources department, Paul works very hard to ensure that things run smoothly. His favorite thing about working at Home Instead is that he gets to spend every day doing his part to help those who need it. He often expresses how grateful he is that Home Instead has given him an opportunity to find a position that he is not only passionate about, but one that fulfills his life. Paul is from Carol, OH and has worked in the healthcare field since high school while also attending culinary school. In his time away from Home Instead, he enjoys exercising, traveling, and spending time with his fiancée and dog.

Steve Phillips, Director of Business Development

Steve is a graduate of Ohio University with a bachelor’s degree in Business Education. After graduating from Ohio University, Steve worked in post-secondary textbook publishing for over twenty-five years, earning various awards in Sales Excellence. What Steve enjoyed most was the fact that the educational materials he was representing helped students improve their lives and helped them to better their future. Because he has great passion to help others, it was easy for Steve to relate to Home Instead’s values right from the start. He feels proud that Home Instead is in the business of helping people stay in their homes safely and allows them to maintain an independent life style. Steve has been a part of the Home Instead team for three years and oversees the recruiting, interviewing and training of employees. He prides himself on helping our team grow both personally and professionally. Without him, it’s safe to say that we wouldn’t have the great team dynamic that we do today.
