“I wanted to do a job that is important, that makes a difference.”
Two events really shaped my journey into home care. The first was when, in 2006, I married a woman who had adopted three children with special needs. I was the stay-at-home parent. It was the first time I’d really experienced caring for others as a full-time job, I was surprised how much I enjoyed it.
The second event on my home care journey occurred not long after when my mother’s health began to fail. She was living with dementia but very adamant about staying in her own home. That was when I first learned about home care, as I looked into options to allow her to live her life on her own terms.
After my mother passed away, I began to consider what I wanted to do next in my life. My kids were all grown, but I wanted whatever I did next to focus on care and giving back to others. Finally, it dawned on me that home care was the best way to do that.
