A message from our founder:

I have a deep passion for senior services. Much of this is personal having participated first-hand in my father’s physical care as he battled cancer at 76-years-old with no prior health issues. I was not alone. There were four of us: My two sisters, my mom, and me (all unpaid caregivers). We surrounded my father with love and 24/7 personal care for about a year. He was well beyond nursing facility level of care, but per his wishes, we were able to keep him home.  It was the hardest job any of us had ever done in our lives. It was exhausting for all four of us. Yet, we wouldn't have had it any other way. I walked away with an unbelievable appreciation for people who have made this their life’s work. You are a gift to our society. What you do is important—very important. I can’t imagine where we would be without your commitment to provide compassionate care to seniors who are vulnerable, and struggling with chronic illnesses, but have no informal supports. 

 

I realize my year of caregiving for my father does not qualify me to wear your shoes, however, I commit my life’s work to supporting you. As the world of senior services pivots from a social service model to a business model, I am dedicating my background and experience to do whatever I can to facilitate this transition.
