Althea J., General Manager

Althea is a native of the Pacific Northwest but spent many years in Mesa Arizona before moving back to her hometown of Portland Oregon in 2014. This is where she stayed until she relocated to Boise in 2022.

Althea comes to Boise with many years of in-home care experience starting as a caregiver and CNA in 1994. Over the years she has worn many hats, held many titles, and worked in all aspects of the industry. She found her true knack was in  compliance, regulation and finance. Her passion is and always will be providing solutions for families and taking care of the Care Professionals who make it all possible. Althea takes pride in her ability to effectively lead her team and truly stands by the mission, vision and values that Home Instead is built on.

Althea boasts a beautiful, blended family with 3 of her own children and 3 bonus children, all of whom are now adults and beginning their own lives and careers. As empty nesters, Althea and her husband Andre decided that Boise was the perfect place for the next chapter of their lives. Althea is excited about the opportunity to continue her mission of helping all people but especially seniors.
