Most people who choose the profession of caregiving do it because they find fulfillment and happiness in helping people. I’ve talked to several of our employees who have told me that at the end of the day, they feel like they’ve made a difference by improving the quality of life for another person. I’ve also heard from many clients and their family members over the years (read some of our testimonials) and they’ve confirmed this to be absolutely true.

Our caregivers make a huge difference in the lives of seniors and adults with disabilities. They make our clients more comfortable, they provide caring companionship, and they help them stay
safe and more independent. According to AARP, “Nearly 90% of people over age 65 indicate they want to stay in their home as long as possible, and four of five in that age bracket believe their current home is where they will always live.”

So we might conclude that in-home caregiving is a win-win scenario. Caregivers are happier because they are making a difference in people’s lives and seniors are happier because their expressed desire to age in place is being fulfilled!
