We’re Skilled at the Heart of Care
We provide non-medical respite services that support independence, dignity and graceful aging.
Respite care is an essential part of the overall support that families may need to keep a family member with a disability at home. The word “respite” means to take a break from the daily challenges of caring for a child or a parent with special needs. It can be planned for a few hours or for as long as a weekend. Respite care can take place in your home or temporarily in another setting, such as a day center, assisted living facility or in the community.
Benefits of Respite Care
Caring for a loved one 24/7 can begin to wear on your physical and mental health. You may find yourself:
Our senior care services cater to the caregiver’s mental and physical well-being, and when the caregiver-you-is healthy, the patient remains healthy, too. Respite care will.
Homecare isn’t just my job, it’s my calling.
Discovering my purpose didn’t happened overnight. As a young adult, I worked job after job building skills along the way, but never feeling a deep connection to my work. But from the moment I began working with seniors, something about it felt like the right fit for me. It wasn’t just a job. As I cared for them, advocated for their needs, and humbly listened to their amazing life stories, I found the connection I’d been looking for my entire career.
It was actually my mom who fully recognized my gift and encouraged me to pursue a career working with seniors. Well, I followed her advice and nearly a decade later, I’m the proud and dedicated founder and Operational Manager of Graceful Homecare. I guess it’s true what they say, “Mother knows best!”
When I decided to launch my homecare business, I needed 2 things: An incredible name, and a skilled and dependable staff. Well, the name was easy. Graceful isn’t just my vision of healthy aging, it’s my middle name! I knew I wanted to bring my full self to my business, and lending my name felt like the perfect way to do just that. Then, because I take my work so seriously, I’ve made it my mission to seek out and train staff who are equally as passionate as I am about working with seniors. My care team includes the kinds of professionals I would trust to care for my own aging parent.
That’s the difference you’ll find at Graceful Homecare. We’re family oriented. You’ll never be forced to jump through hoops or track down a corporate office just to get the service you deserve. I’m creating a movement where long-term trusting relationships become the norm in homecare. We offer a listening and engaged ear. We encourage our clients to live their best lives. We keep the lines of communication open. After all, that’s how family should be treated.
We’re proud to serve seniors in Charlotte, North Carolina and surrounding areas. I’m a licensed Certified Nursing Assistant, and Dementia Care Practitioner.
