“Giving back to our community is what drives us.”
My roots are in northern Virginia, and it is my great joy to run a business that allows me to give back to my community. I’ve seen firsthand the benefits that come when someone who is living with an illness or simply growing older is able to remain in their own home. In my own family, my mother’s life was greatly enhanced by the ability to continue living in the familiarity and comfortable surroundings of her own home. It’s that sort of benefit that I’m most excited to bring to my community, each and every day.
I’d been in the corporate world for a long time, working for various Fortune 500 companies, when the last company I worked for was purchased and my position transitioned out of the area. Rather than leave the community that meant so much to me, I decided it was time for a change. My wife and I wanted a business that would allow us to give back and serve our community, and that was how we got into home care.
I’ve always felt very strongly about the value of other people’s lives and treating all people with dignity from the beginning of their lives to the very end. That’s what makes working in home care so fulfilling to me. It allows me to put into practice my firm conviction that all persons are deserving of dignity, in all stages of their life. And, the fact that I’m able to do this in my own community makes it even better.
My husband and I both have long history in the business world, but with the change in John’s position, we were able to take a step back and ask, “Where do we want to go next?” It was so important to the both of us that, whatever we decided, it would give us a chance to give back to our community. We’re both people persons, and we bring a sense of warmth and family to everything we do. Therefore home care was a natural fit for us, and we’re blessed to have a chance to provide such a meaningful service to so many people.
Our belief is that you’re always more successful doing something with other people than doing it alone, and we’re here to help you and your loved ones through this next stage in your life. We are committed to care and to helping you and your loved ones live your best lives possible. That’s our mission, our core belief and our calling.
