Valita Bell-Young

Staffing Manager

Home Care Assistance is lucky to have Valita as part of our office team! She moved into the staffing manager position from the field, where she did phenomenal work as a caregiver. Her compassion and knowledge make her a perfect fit for the position as she can identify with both the clients and caregivers, as well as provide encouragement and/or coaching if needed. Valita was “called to caregiving” at a very young age, starting as a candy striper as a teenager at our very own General Hospital (now UC). She has been working in this field her entire adult life. When not at work, Valita enjoys spending time with her husband, 6 children, and her brand new puppy.

Steve Sudberry

General Manager

Steve has co-owned Home Care Assistance Cincinnati since 2013. He attended Miami University and upon graduation began his career at GE Capital. After working in operations, finance and marketing he departed GE Capital to start his first business. When the decision to sell the business he owned for over a decade was made, a two-year search to purchase another company ensued. The result was the purchase of Home Care Assistance Cincinnati. The company was appealing because its focus is to provide a service to our aging seniors who want to remain in their homes but need extra assistance to make it a reality. The right combination of the underserved market for high-quality home care for seniors along with his passion for serving others made the company a perfect fit.

Steve was born and raised in Cincinnati. He has been married to his wife Liz for over 25 years. They have three children, Ben, Elliot, and Grace. He enjoys playing golf, table tennis, boating, motorcycles and most especially traveling with his family. He is a Disneyphile, making the annual pilgrimage to Walt Disney World with Liz and kids for over fifteen years.

Professional memberships and achievements include ERS Samaritan Circle, American Society on Aging, USC Davis School of Gerontology Fundamentals of Gerontology Certificate, Alzheimer’s Association “Walk to End Alzheimer’s” Champions Club, and Home Care Assistance Outstanding Operations.

Will Reid

Regional Director

Will brings over 25 years of experience in Sales, Marketing and Business Management to his role with Home Care Assistance. When his own family member began to experience health issues, he saw the need for high-quality senior care services to those experiencing a health crisis or wishing to age in place. For that reason, he invested in Home Care Assistance Cincinnati.

Will still has a passion for Sales and Marketing and continues to integrate it into his daily work. His company focus is to provide an environment in which Home Care Assistance clients live high quality lives wherever they call home. Will has served multiple terms on the Home Care Assistance Franchise Advisory Council.

In Cincinnati, Will works with his lifelong best friend Steve Sudberry where together they focus on maintaining high quality standards and excellent communications with senior care clients, their families and area business partners in Greater Cincinnati and Northern Kentucky.

Liz Sudberry

Dementia Care Specialist

Liz has always been drawn to working with the elderly. She spent a lot of time with grandparents and often joined her grandmother, Mimi, to lead a music and movement program. Through her grandmother’s passion and love of dance and music, Liz came to understand the importance of using rhythm to facilitate engagement.

Liz believes helping older adults find meaning and purpose everyday is a calling and especially enjoys making a
personal connection with clients and caregivers. As the Dementia Care Specialist, Liz works to customize care and personalize every aspect of daily living. Helping client’s find joy in life through engagement is what Liz feels strongly about. With a degree in Occupational Therapy from Xavier University and a specialization in eldercare, Liz teaches caregivers to use a unique approach to respond to behaviors a client might exhibit when something just isn’t right. Liz developed and leads a work-
shop with HCA employees to understand dementia, how it affects people, and how to be supportive. Liz teaches how to be a detective to find the unmet need when a client can’t verbalize it. She emphasizes the use of nonverbal communication.

Using the Home Care Assistance proprietary brain fitness model, Cognitive Therapeutics Method, Liz develops customized plans that help maximize brain function. She trains and works with degreed brain fitness coaches, who work one-on-one to stimulate neural connections with personalized exercises that are scaled for ability level. One of the most important ways HCA stands out is our approach. We view our clients as partners, whom we respect and give choices.

Kim Garry

Head of Operations

Kim is passionate about helping others maintain their highest level of independence, preserving their sense of purpose and independence. Her mother is a very active 91-year old who serves as an excellent role model for aging with a sense of purpose. Her family moved in with her father in law, who suffers from dementia and Parkinson’s Disease symptoms, where they learned both the benefits and difficulties of caring for a loved one in the middle to late stages of dementia.

Kim is a licensed Occupational Therapist, who has worked in a variety of settings, ranging from the Newborn Intensive Care Unit and High-Risk Follow-Up to Adult Rehabilitation to Skilled Nursing Facilities. She especially enjoyed assisting her clients and families to safely and successfully return to their homes.

Kim has worked for Home Care Assistance as a Brain Fitness Coach, participating in Dementia Workshops and continuing education courses focusing on the Positive Approach to Care for the geriatric population. She is excited to join the Home Care Assistance Team on a full-time basis serving as the Executive Director. Home Care Assistance stands out given their holistic approach to helping our clients age with a sense of purpose and dignity.

Kim was born and raised in Cincinnati. She has three teenage children, with two away at Ohio State and one in high school. She enjoys all forms of exercise, as well as reading and spending time with her kids and dog.

Tonya See

Home Care Liason

Tonya is a natural fit for working in the community that supports older adults. Having worked professionally to develop solutions for improving lives for over 15 years, Tonya is an expert problem-solver, who takes the time necessary to understand client’s specific needs and explores options even those which may be “outside the box.” Her expertise lies across both medical and dental industries. In particular, Tonya has an extensive background in advising about supportive equipment and developing plans that make a positive impact on people's’ lives.

Tonya’s decision to work with older adults is a true calling, in fact, it’s personal. When illness struck in her own family, both parents being diagnosed with cancer, Tonya responded with an extensive portfolio of tools and a network of professionals with which to work. She knew going in to be flexible, to change gears when status changed, and to use a team approach that gives everyone respite and time to recharge. When Tonya’s parents' health transitioned into incurable and untreatable, Tonya was able to gradually transition her parents adding in hospice care. Tonya can advise about options for support, having become well acquainted with all the benefits of supportive living options. For Tonya, bringing one of her parents into her own home and being a hands-on part of the care team made the most sense. Tonya’s mom, Mary, lived with her for a year until she succumbed to the disease which meant going to a hospital for medical care in the last couple of days. Ultimately, Tonya knows firsthand what it takes to create a plan which means the quality of life, whether someone lives with dementia, another medical condition or is terminally ill.

Tonya earned a Bachelors of Science in Geology at Wright State University after growing up in Dayton, Ohio. She is married and has three children. A self-admitted “homebody,” Tonya enjoys being with her family, cooking for them, and spends time engaged in fitness and sports of all kinds.

Working with Tonya, you will find she is passionate about helping you and other families and care providers give your clients and loved ones the best care available that is customized for personal preferences and needs. One person’s care support plan is one person’s care support plan. Tonya knows resources and will find the right ones for you so everyone is comfortable and has peace of mind.

Laura is always trying to fit in more time to help more people. Laura was awarded her Master’s in Social Work and is a Licensed Social Worker. She is a strong believer in the Strength’s Perspective, which focuses on finding clients’ abilities, assets and resources as opposed to their weaknesses. She is looking forward to using that approach with Home Care Assistance clients and their caregivers.

Resource Downloads

We strive to inform and educate. Here is a small sample of resources we have to offer to help you make the best decision for your family.

Why Many Families Choose Home Care Services By Home Care Assistance

There will be a time when elderly people in your family may need to take advantage of a private home care service provider. These individuals, which have gone through special training, will be able to help them at their home. Some will only require these individuals a few hours a week, whereas others may need them to move in. This is a step in the right direction, especially if this family member is suffering from a degenerative mental condition, stroke, or if they have cancer. A business by the name of Home Care Assistance will be willing to help anyone that needs these types of services.

Caregiving for your loved ones in the comfort of their own Houses in Cincinnati Ohio

Most elderly people are apprehensive about leaving their home. This is where they have been for many decades. All of their memories are within this household, and like most people, they would not want to go away. Instead, by providing them with home care services, you will allow them to maintain their dignity and happiness, yet also receive the proper medical care that they need to have.

Senior & Elderly Care

This senior elderly care that Home Care Assistance can provide is exceptional. They have trained individuals that are able to help those that suffer from a multitude of ailments. Those that have cancer, Parkinson's, dementia, and anyone that has had a stroke, can benefit from the services that they offer.

Alzheimer’s

The reason that home care services may be needed for those that suffer from Alzheimer's. This cognitive condition can affect their behavior, their ability to think, and also change their mood significantly. By having a home care provider there to help them, it will allow them to function despite this disease.

Parkinson's Disease

This is another debilitating condition that is common with elderly people. Parkinson's will affect their muscular system, producing tremors, slow bodily movement, or muscle rigidity. They may develop a problem with sleeping, often resulting in nightmares and sleep disturbances. If the healthcare provider is there around-the-clock, this will be beneficial if they are waking up at night

Dementia

The cognitive problems caused by dementia are numerous. It can even affect their ability to speak. Some people that have dementia will not recognize friends, family members, or even the place where they are living. Feelings of loneliness and anxiety are common with these individuals that can benefit from home care providers that will be with them every step of the way.

Stroke Victim Care

Stroke victims are sometimes paralyzed, and that will certainly necessitate some type of medical treatment provided by care providers that will come to their home. Whether they are living there, or if they are providing occasional help throughout the week, medical professionals that will be there to help them can make this so much easier

Cancer

Elderly people that have cancer may need to have specific treatments done daily. If they would prefer staying at their home, the professionals from this business will be able to administer any medications that will be necessary.

About Our Caregiving Services

The caregivers at Home Care Assistance will always offer the most comprehensive and affordable care available. If you do have elderly people that need assistance now, or that will soon need to have in care home services, this business can help in many different areas. For those that have suffered a stroke, or if they have cancer, these services will be very beneficial. You can speak with representatives of Home Care Assistance that can tell you more about the services that they offer.
