When my grandfather was diagnosed with cancer, my grandparents moved into my family’s in-law apartment.  As his disease progressed he was in and out of the hospital, which took a toll on him both physically and emotionally. Every hospital stay brought feelings of unrest for him as he wanted to be home in familiar surroundings. With the help of caregivers, we were able to keep my Papa at home with us the last few months of his life. Having that assistance made a huge impact on his ability to stay home, and provided respite for my family. He passed away peacefully at home surrounded by family.

I was touched by the compassion, professionalism, and consistency of his caregiver team, and I knew as an adult I wanted to pay it forward to others. I became a caregiver and had the opportunity to form amazing relationships with clients and their families. Being able to provide assistance to others that was so important to my family during a time of need is one of my proudest accomplishments. In my new role, I look forward to assisting clients, their families and our caregivers from the administrative side of the business to provide the highest quality of care.
