CEO, Home Instead Senior Care
In 2016, Joseph Bidwell and his staff at Home Instead Senior Care helped deliver more than 12,000 gifts to seniors who were housebound or in nursing facilities all across Southwest Florida as part of the franchise’s Be a Santa to a Senior program. That’s just a fraction of good Bidwell is involved in. As CEO of Home Instead, Bidwell facilitates home senior care for those in Collier, Lee and Charlotte counties.
Prior to leading the company, Bidwell served as an aerospace engineer at the National Air & Space Intelligence Center in Dayton, Ohio, and at Northrop Grumman Aerospace Systems in Redondo Beach, California. In this career, Bidwell led business development efforts on a space-designed ballistic missile defense system. He also completed a master’s degree in aerospace engineering and architecture from USC and traveled often to brief high-level military leaders. Bidwell has been recognized by Northrop Grumman, a global security company, with its Program Management Award and Future Leaders: Lead1NG Award.
When he’s not working, Bidwell enjoys spending time with his wife and three young children, Eliza, Fitz and Lochlan, and volunteers in his daughter’s kindergarten classroom. An avid rock climber, Bidwell hopes to one day open a rock-climbing facility in the area.
