About Us

CAREGiver Ambassadors

Professional CAREGiver Ambassadors

​​​Our team of CAREGiver Ambassadors are here to respond to urgent needs that may arise day or night. There are a variety of situations in which our CAREGiver Ambassadors help us ensure the upmost quality of care and responsiveness. On any given day a CAREGiver may experience an emergency and be unable to make it to their client's home. In this case we deploy our CAREGiver Ambassador to arrive on time to ensure the client never goes without care. In addition, they assist our CAREGivers with extra support in the home when a client has a particularly challenging day. We are grateful for our CAREGiver Ambassadors and the vital role they play as members of our team.

Brad Cannon, Owner

"Home Instead is personal to me because we are in the business of caring for others. The relationships that we have with our clients and their families are built on a foundation of trust. We have been the solution for so many different family circumstances since 2002 and we have been able to meet these personal needs of seniors with love and compassion. Home Instead as a team is a group of people on a mission to help others and that is very personal. We all have been given free choice regarding our careers and this team has collectively chosen to help seniors and their families. I love what we do and I take seriously the trust that is bestowed upon us by each family that asks Home Instead to help."

Originally from Glasgow, Kentucky, Brad has a Bachelor’s Degree from Western Kentucky University. Brad is also a Certified Senior Advisor (CSA) and a licensed nursing home administrator in Kentucky and Florida.

Juanita Almy, Vice President of Operations

Home Instead is personal to me because every senior in the community deserves to age in the place that they have called home until their final days. I chose Home Instead and continue to choose Home Instead because I can. I can choose to be a driving force in the aging process and aging at home. I have watched complete strangers and friends sit in a nursing home and stare blankly out a window each day, wishing to go home, or leave. I am realistic that I cannot save everyone, but I can diligently chip away at spreading the mission and, more importantly, the love. I choose Home Instead because I genuinely want to positively enhance the lives of aging adults and their families. I choose Home Instead so that I can work side by side with admin who quickly became like family and share the same mission. I choose Home Instead to have the opportunity to be a difference maker, a leader, and a resource for people who do not want to ask for help but need it. I chose Home Instead because it is an ever-changing business that gives people opportunity…if you want it. Life is hard, sometimes work is hard, but the choice I made is easy."

Born and raised in Upstate New York, Juanita and her husband relocated to Bowling Green Kentucky in 2015. Soon after moving, Juanita began her career with Home Instead as a Professional CAREGiver in Bowling Green, KY, determined to do something that she loved, something “worthwhile” and something to “make a difference”. She served as the Communications Engineer for the Bowling Green, KY, franchise before becoming the Human Resources Coordinator then quickly transitioning into the Director of Human Resources.

In 2017 Juanita began working with Clarksville and its surrounding areas as the Vice President of Operations, to help seniors in the community. In November of 2019, Juanita accepted the opportunity to run a second franchise in Goodlettsville to serve more seniors. As of 2020, Juanita moved to Gadsden, Alabama, to oversee all operations there. In November 2020, Juanita acquired the Nashville Home Instead, as well as the Franklin Home Instead, and appointed two Executive Directors to run day to day operations in those two businesses. As of January 2021, Juanita now oversees all operations in Bowling Green KY, and Frankfort KY Home Instead as well, making her Operationally responsible for all outcomes in all 7 Franchises.
