Hello. I'm the Founder and CEO of 1st Call Home Care.

What I do:

My best advice to families looking for care?

When you're loved one is admitted to the hospital or is in a skilled nursing home. start looking for caregiving services already (if you think the situation at home will warrant it). Don't wait for instructions from the doctor or the discharge planners. Oftentimes, they tell you at the last minute, and then you're at the mercy of time, stress and you're under duress trying to look for home care services. Give yourself your own heads-up and start planning from Day 1.

Best Advice for Families Looking for Care?

When their finances can sustain it, I would highly recommend that families subscribe to a geriatric care management program. It removes them from the center of such an overwhelming responsibility and transfers that stress over to the care manager. It's a shift from burdened to relieved. They are able to spend precious time with their older loved ones on better terms and calmer emotional state. It's actually good for their seniors and for their well-being as well.


We are forever grateful for the care our beloved mother received from Emily. My mom lived alone and since the day she met her caregiver, we noticed her improvement. She smiled a lot more than she did, she gained much needed weight from all the delicious food her caregiver cooked. It truly showed a remarkable difference in our mom’s life. We wholeheartedly recommend 1st Call Home Care Agency to anyone seeking the best possible care for their elderly family members.
