Steve Sudberry – Owner
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 it’s 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.

Laura Norton – Client Care Manager
While pursuing my degree in Social Work I had the opportunity to intern with a local hospice agency for a year and a half. Going into the Social Work Program at Northern Kentucky University I knew that I wanted to work with the geriatric population. I began working at Home Care Assistance as a Caregiver before stepping into my current role Client Care Manager. While working as a Caregiver, I was able to complete graduate school and earn my Master’s in Social Work and to obtain my Licensed Social Worker status. A large part of my motivation to work with older adults was that I recognized how much of a privilege that it would be to get to care for people during such a vulnerable time in their lives. It is an amazing honor to be invited into someone’s home and be able to help care for their needs.
I am a strong believer in the Strength’s Perspective, which focuses on finding clients’ abilities, assets and resources as opposed to their weaknesses. When focusing on a person’s strengths it is much easier to work towards goals and be successful! I look forward to utilizing that with every client and caregiver that I encounter.
I am so excited for the opportunity to work with you!.

Paul Kidwell – Client Care Manager
Paul’s passion for the elderly was instilled in him from a very young age. Being raised by a nurse who worked at a nursing home he was often “volunteered” to help with activities within the community. His home care career started in 2008 on the medical side of the business. He started in the office, learning the business from the ground up. With that experience he went on to run an office for another skilled agency. What he learned from his time in Skilled Home Care was that it just wasn’t enough help for many of the clients that he served. After coming across client after client that couldn’t stay home safely he wanted to become part of the solution to a growing problem.
Paul transitioned into the Private Duty Home Care space when he became a Community Liaison for a non- medical in home care provider. When Paul learned about Home Care Assistance, and the Balanced Care Method, he knew he had found the company that was for him. Through his vast experience on different ends of the home care spectrum he’s able to help all clients and perspective clients on multiple levels. It’s his belief that we can help everyone somehow. It’s up to us to figure out how.
When he’s not connecting Home Care Assistance clients with great Caregivers you will probably find him at this Stained Glass studio that he runs with his mother. Sharp Art Stained glass has been making artwork since 2009. If he’s not there he’s at his home with his two dogs, Polo and Zues.
