Blair Sapeta, Owner

Blair joined Home Instead in June of 1998. Her love and passion for seniors led her to pursue a degree in Gerontology while working for Home Instead Senior Care. During that time, she explored social work and public policy, but her heart was with the families and caregivers she worked with every day. Blair has had the honor and privilege to help so many families with the various needs that arise during the journey of the aging process and navigating the senior care options. She finds it is truly amazing the difference Home Instead Senior Care makes. Her passion is really with serving and caring for those around her. With her experience at Home Instead Senior Care so many things have evolved and changed and that is what is so exciting, the constant challenge to grow and adapt. Home Instead Senior Care allows her to make a difference every day, whether it’s helping a family in crisis, a community care partner we serve, or a wonderful caregiver. Blair leads a team of caring individuals who help families with the many issues that involved caring for your loved ones. As an advocate and resource for families, Blair is always pursuing education and opportunities to exceed the growing needs within our senior care community.

Anthony Sapeta, Owner

Anthony is originally from Northern California where he was a district manager for a well-known distribution company located in Sacramento. Working for this company allowed him to learn the entire region and how to operate a team from every level. This is where he gained the most experience managing and developing successful sales individuals who exceeded their goals personally and professionally.

Anthony is outgoing, focused on excellent customer service, honest, and caring. He has had the ability to watch his wife Blair provide amazing service to seniors and their families throughout their community for the past 15 years with Home Instead Senior Care. Anthony’s desire to help others came naturally, he grew up watching his Mother being the primary care provider for his grandparents and great grandparents. She worked hard to make sure they were able to stay in their own homes. After watching his Mother battle cancer and seeing the need for care with his uncle with Parkinson’s, the passion and dedication from Blair’s resources truly at work, he realized it was time to give back. After pursuing his interest in helping seniors, an opportunity in Goodyear, AZ with Home Instead Senior Care became available. Anthony and Blair packed up the family and moved to Goodyear, AZ now closer to family and friends. Anthony is dedicated to helping Seniors and their families throughout the Southwest Valley. He enjoys sports and watching his kids grow into amazing individuals.

Melissa grew up between Kansas and Wyoming, where she started her caregiving career. She's always had a soft spot for the elderly, Melissa remembers helping her grandparents out when she was younger. Her desire to help seniors led her to grow her knowledge and experience eventually becoming a CNA / HHA where she gained a variety of skills working between long term care facilities, and hospitals. Melissa also had the opportunity to work as a rehabilitation -restorative aide, working alongside physical and occupational therapists. This experience has given Melissa the ability to share a vast variety of resources, skills, and talents to help our caregivers.

She saw firsthand the importance helping to keep her patients at home. Melissa also had the privilege of helping both of her grandmothers through their end of life journey.

About Our Team

The Goodyear, AZ office of Home Instead Senior Care is managed by a team of caring individuals and has been providing caring and compassionate services for seniors in the area since 2018.

“We are passionate about meeting the needs of the seniors in our community”. “It’s not just about providing services, it’s about building long term relationships”.

“We are also involved in our community, as we participate in many events. As a member of the Home Instead family, I take much pride in providing additional help where needed for other organizations such as the Southwest Lending Closet and Meals of Joy”, explains Blair. “Our newest initiative is a free program that provides education seminars for family members that are struggling with the care of loved ones afflicted with Alzheimer’s.”

“The Goodyear office also has its own community service initiatives including the annual “Be a Santa to a Senior” event, in which many deserving seniors are provided gifts where, in some cases there are no family members to share the holiday season with.

When it comes to providing the best quality home care services for seniors, Blair, Anthony, and the Home Instead family are committed to thoroughly training their caring, compassionate and professional Care Professionals. Building great relationships with our Care Professionals is just as important as the relationships we build with our clients.

The applicants undergo reference checks, a criminal background check and a driver’s abstract. Home Instead Senior Care is a full employment agency and is responsible for withholding and paying employment deductions as well as Worker’s Compensation insurance. The on-going training for Care Professionals helps them develop personally and professionally. The training ranges from “Basic, Advanced and Safety” CAREGiver training all the way up to “Alzheimer's and Dementia Care” training as well as a very comprehensive training program for providing palliative care.
