Health & Home Services was founded in 1998 to meet the ever-increasing need in our aging and pediatric population requiring specialized care and as a place where those providing care had a caring and supportive work environment. Our goal was to provide the best care possible. This was to be achieved primarily through our efforts to hire, train, and manage the best people available to provide those services.
“I had been employed in various areas in the health care field since 1974 and as a registered nurse since 1984. I worked in hospitals and other healthcare facilities as a Respiratory Therapist and Registered Nurse. I served in the US Navy as a Hospital Corpsman. I enjoyed the challenges that providing care to others presented. I found a great deal of joy in interacting with patients and their families. But, at most times, it seemed like I never had enough time to “make a difference”.
Then in 1994 I had the opportunity to help a friend in need. His parents were aging and in fragile health. They wanted to stay at home, a place that they had lived for years, a place where they had raised their families and most importantly a place they loved and were most comfortable. I agreed to help and “Mr. RN” became an In-Home Aide. In a short time of providing care, I realized that I had “arrived”. Never in my years of healthcare had I done anything as rewarding as HOME CARE. I was home. I stayed with the husband and wife and assisted the family through the passing of both parents and went on to a career as a RN Case Manager in home health. Caring for people in their homes allowed me to feel like what I was doing made a difference. In 1998, I started Health & Home Services to give my fellow healthcare workers an opportunity to do what we do best - care for and about people.
As President of Health & Home Services, it has been my goal to provide our employees a great place to work; to give them the respect and support they need to provide the best care available.”
