Father-daughter team Curt & Carol-Lauren Reilly
We began our home care experience when our own family needed assistance. I was living in Tallahassee, Florida, two hours from my family in Jacksonville, when first my father and then my mother became ill and required care in their home. A short time later, two of my brothers-in-law also required hands on care.
Because of these experiences, I understand the challenges faced by families and the importance of balancing your own life, while trying to find the best possible care for your loved one. At the time, we did not know what services were available and much of what we learned was through trial and error. After researching on our own, we discovered what a benefit and a resource quality home care could be and soon after I knew the path I wanted to take for the next phase of my professional life.
I’m committed to being a resource for all of our clients and their families and I am so pleased to play a role in impacting their well-being.
A few years ago, I was working part-time and going to school when my grandparents became ill. At that point, much of my life was put on hold so that I could assist. Family has always been the highest priority for me, so it was only natural that I set aside my own agenda to care for my grandparents. It wasn’t easy, but I had the support of the rest of the family and we worked together to serve the best interest of all of us. I was able to help my grandparents through a challenging transition in their lives and the comfort I gave them is a source of satisfaction and pride for me.
Soon after these experiences, my dad suggested we go into the home care business together. I knew it was a perfect match for us. Our business incorporates all the things that truly matter: helping others, making a difference, and family.
I know the work we do makes a huge difference in the lives of our clients and their families and that’s what makes this business so important. Empowering our clients by helping them remain in their homes and live life on their own terms is beyond rewarding.
Additionaly, I am the Home Care Association of Florida (HCAF) District 4 Director, and bring a broad knowledge of updates to the home care community and hold my company to the highest standard.
Two Generations of Dedicated Care
Our journey has shown us all perspectives of home care: clients, family members, caregivers and home care providers. As a result, we know communication between clients, family and caregivers is essential. We are committed to fostering open and active communication through every step of the care process. We are committed to keeping the client engaged and a part of the conversation. With this approach, our goal is to keep the client involved in the choices about their care plan and aware what is expected of the caregivers who come to their homes.
We bring to the table two different generations of experience, energy, and business savvy and we make it our focus to assist and treat families as if they were our own. We understand firsthand the pressure and stress of caring for an ill or elderly loved one and how it can take a toll on the family. Our pledge to our clients and their loved ones is to always be open and compassionate and to continue to look for opportunities to help families live their best lives.
