Why We Started A Better Living Home Care Agency
In 2000, while working as executives for one of the nation’s largest in home care corporations, our founders (Mary Griffin RN, MPH, and Jay Bloodsworth MA, MBA) were not satisfied with impersonal way large companies, and how national franchises treated clients and care providers. Two of the greatest weaknesses of “corporate care providers” that Mary and Jay recognized were:
A Better Living Home Care Agency opened its first office in Sacramento, CA to serve the four counties of Greater Sacramento in December of 2000, and was welcomed as a breath of fresh air by the eldercare community. Our personal and professional approach to understanding client and family needs, combined with our client centered approach to in home care was unique and refreshing. In August, 2001 a second office in Concord, CA was opened in response to the needs of the eldercare community of the East San Francisco Bay Area.
What Makes Our Home Care Services Unique?
Using a comprehensive needs assessment, and experiencing a qualified professional
interview of clients and their families prior to the start of care, A Better Living
Home Care Agency excels in matching the most compatible and well‑suited
caregivers with clients. We feel so strongly about finding the right caregivers
and senior helpers for clients that we guarantee compatibility. If a client
is not satisfied with a caregiver, just ask us and we'll provide a new caregiver
within two business days, usually sooner than that.
