The people behind our home care


If you’ve been searching for a home care agency for your care or your loved one’s care, then you know there is a sea of sameness in the dozens of home care choices, making it difficult to actually choose one. And we know that can be frustrating.

How I got into home care

Prior to operating a home care business, I worked for many years in advertising and marketing. During much of my prior career, my son Sam and I spent weekends volunteering at The Ronald McDonald House. We always felt amazing when our work was finished. When it was time to start my own business, it was important to me to generate that same amazing feeling – and I have. Caring for others has become a self-fulfilling success.

I learned from my grandmother

We run our business using a strategy based on The Golden Rule, a lesson my grandmother drilled into me. Over twenty years ago, my grandma could have used a company like ours but none really existed. My parents and I had to move her into an Assisted Living apartment; it was very nice but she hated it. She called it “prison.” My grandma lived a terrific and long life. She passed away in her AL apartment and I always felt she would have lived better her last few years had she been able to stay in the only place I had ever known her to live, surrounded by her memories. By helping people live their lives how they want to live and where they want to live is my way of paying my grandmother back for all she gave me as a young boy/man and for what I was unable to give her. I think about her every day. This is what motivates me each day as we provide the care I wish my grandmother had.

Life is in constant motion. From the time we smile our first smile, ride our first bike, find our first home or embrace our first grandchild, it just keeps moving. And a moving life is a full one.

This is how we keep you and your life moving forward by being intuitively personal.
