About Us

Meet Our Team

Bob Brasher, Franchise Owner

Bob Brasher, Franchise Owner

To us, it is personal. Owners Bob and Joyce Brasher have faced decisions that you are currently facing. Bob, losing a father to Alzheimers Disease, understands the importance of a caregiver who understood the disease and could work with his mom as she struggled to accept someone else coming into her home. When Joyce began providing care for her father who was diagnosed with a multitude of health problems she realized she would need help. Her mother would not be able to care for him around the clock and stay well herself. Living out of town, Joyce had to place her trust in caregivers outside of family members. They recognize the importance and inner struggle of a changing role from daughter/son to care provider.
