As the founders of Pearl HomeCare, we (Coleen and Steve Thornton), can relate to your home care needs in a very personal way. Caring for our own parents inspired us to do all we can to help those seeking care for their loved ones. Pearl Home Care, named for Steve’s mother Pearl, was founded on the value of preserving the intangible sparkle of life in those we love.
When Pearl needed help to cope with her early onset Alzheimer’s, Steve’s father George, broke his hip and needed help as well. We tried several approaches to keep them safe and independent. Finding care that lived up to our expectations was the challenge. The available options either did not meet their needs, or were otherwise unacceptable.
While providing their care we learned exactly what it took to be primary caregivers. We began to hire and manage professional caregivers to assist with the myriad of daily tasks involved in their personal care. Throughout the process, we came to know firsthand which qualities are truly important in a caregiver.
Pearl HomeCare will work with you to create a unique and comprehensive care solution for your loved one.
Our experience providing personal care, as well as the process of selecting and managing caregivers for our own parents, gives us rare insight into the everyday issues facing family members and friends seeking care for loved ones. Everything we do is from the perspective of your loved one. We believe this is the way to preserve that intangible sparkle in those you love.
