03 Feb ACC Family: Our Story
We are Adult Companion Care. We are a world-changing home health care company. In 1994 we were caring for my wife’s grandmother. We were only 5 hours away from her, but this was a world away when we got the call, “I am on the floor and there is no one here to help me get up.” We found some local folks to help and they did help…they helped themselves to some money and to a lot of the food in the refrigerator! In the midst of all this turmoil, someone told my father-in-law that there were companies who provided home care to seniors in this condition as a service. We thought, “What a great idea!”
We started on February 7, 1994. I was the first and only employee. Over the years, I have done every job in the company (except being a nurse as I am not an RN). I have spent the night with clients and changed their soiled diapers. I have cooked and cleaned and driven a zillion miles. I even carried food to a snowed-in client during a snowstorm and carried a substitute caregiver on my back through snow drifts. It has been extraordinary!
We now have been doing this for 18 years this month. We have three offices in three states. We have had the honor to serve many incredible people ranging from Supreme Court Justices, members of the U.S. Senate, and presidential advisors to the sweetest example of a loving mother who never worked a day outside the home who was surrounded by her five blue-collar sons. All this has only increased our desire to serve.
We encourage you to give us a call or visit our website at www.adultcompanioncare.com. Allow us to serve you. We have a team that is second to none! You will be able to tell the difference.
