Chamber Member of the Week: Feel the Love Home Health Care

With 20 years of experience as a CNA, Phyllis Siddon opened Feel the Love Home Health Care in 2016. The prominent Owensboro entrepreneur said her primary goal was to assist seniors in their daily activities to keep them at home instead of in nursing homes. 

The company operates throughout the Greater Owensboro area and strives to go above and beyond for its clients. Siddon said her team of professionals would take vitals, play games, transport to appointments, act as a companion, and assist with meal preparation, hygiene, and medications. 

“When I was working as a CNA, I met a lady who told me if I was ever to open up a business, she wanted to be my first client,” Siddon said. “God led me to her. I started going to her house and expanded from there. This is definitely my calling and my passion.”

Since 2016, Feel the Love has grown from Siddon operating out of her house to over 45 employees and a permanent location at 2410 West Parrish Avenue. Expanding from two clients to more than 20 with a waiting list, Siddon attributes the growth to their level of care. 

“We love being able to give our clients the one-on-one attention they deserve and need; it’s fulfilling to be able to connect with them and form relationships,” she said. “We’ve done minimal advertising. Word of mouth and family members and clients sharing the word has gotten us where we are today.”

Siddon said she considers her work a ministry, referring to the company as “God’s Business.” Siddon said her faith in God was her inspiration behind Feel the Love, and she loves giving back to the community in various ways. 

“We treat our clients like they are our family,” Siddon said. “We have many clients whose family members live all over the country, so we try to be their family. The name truly aligns with the mission of the business – we’re always trying to make people feel the love.”

Siddon takes giving back to the community seriously, most recently hosting a “stuff the backpack” event for youth heading back to school. She reflected on her time as a youngster, always admiring Alma Randolph and her efforts in the community.

“Ms. Randolph is a person I’ve always looked up to,” she said. “My mother had four children, and when we were struggling, Ms. Randolph always made sure my mother had shoes and clothes for us. She’s a big reason I got into the business.”

Siddon also owns and operates L and L Security Services, Mini Mo’s Housekeeping, Owensboro P and B Tax and Credit Services, and is opening Nana’s Playhouse – an around-the-clock childcare center.

Feel the Love is also in the beginning phases of becoming credentialed to accept Medicaid, Medicare, and private insurance payments. For more information, visit feeltheloveky.com/.
