History of In-Home Care from Home Care Assistance in Lincoln, NE
We have been there, too. We understand.
After five years as the sole caregiver to my mother, an Alzheimer’s sufferer, stress finally took its toll on my father. When he became extremely ill, I did what many out-of-town daughters do. I searched for a facility to move my parents to so they could receive care. From my home in Nebraska, I researched options for my parents, who live in Georgia. My father told me, in no uncertain terms, “No, I am not moving. Figure out another option.” He clearly understood what I didn’t – no assisted living facility or nursing home could provide him and my mother the level of independence, control, dignity and peace of mind they desired and deserved.
Through necessity and desperation, my family discovered home care and the inherent freedom and flexibility associated with remaining in your own home with one-on-one personal care. At about the same time, I realized a friend’s passion for enriching elders’ lives was as deep as mine.
These two events formed a turning point in my life. My friend and I formed a partnership and founded Home Care Assistance of Nebraska. We believe, when done correctly and with a focus on whole-person care, in-home care services dramatically enhance the lives of older adults and their families. My absolutely amazing partner, Amy Harris, and I are dedicated to ensuring our clients benefit from the lessons my father taught about independence, control, dignity and peace of mind throughout the aging process.
