Meet our Founder
"Fedelta is an Italian word that means trust, care and compassion. It’s a tribute to my grandmother, Theresa, and it describes the way we do business. It’s what you can expect from me and everyone who works for our company."
Where it all began
As a young boy, Steve watched as his family struggled to care for his beloved, Italian grandmother, Theresa. While everyone wanted to keep her at home, they were simply overwhelmed by the task. Due to a lack of options in home care at that time, my family had no choice but to place Theresa in a nursing home.
"My family and my grandmother were heartbroken. It was not the solution anyone wanted," Steve recalls. "My grandmother and I were very close, and I wish that I could have something to help her stay at home. Sadly, she lived in a nursing home the last 18 months of her life."
Steve graduated Cum Laude from Hamlin University and became an expert in organizational development. Steve built a highly successful career helping Fortune 500 companies with best of breed practices. But he always felt something was missing. "My work was not personally fulfilling," he explains. "My experience with my grandmother had always stuck with me, and I felt strongly pulled toward home care."
Steve took steps toward purchasing a home care franchise. But the company's training program convinced him that a chain was not for him. "The personal and business principles I believe in are at odds with the franchise way of doing things," he explains. "I realized I wanted to start my own company." Steve now knows that his purpose in life is to help others care for their aging family members at home.
Steve Meyer created Fedelta in 2004, with the goal of offering a better way for aging people to live at home for as long as possible, and to live their way. Fedelta has grown steadily since then, expanding its services and offerings providing solutions for all clients. Today, Steve proudly serves as a board member for the Alzheimer’s Association of Washington, The Washington Home Care Association, and NEST.
The company's name, Fedelta, honors Steve's grandmother, Theresa. "Fedelta is an Italian word that means trust, care and compassion," he explains. "It's a tribute to my grandmother, and it describes the way we do business. It's what you can expect from me and the entire Fedelta Home Care family.
