A Message from Our CEO
Love and Concern
As my parents and grandparents age, I often think about the comparison between the struggles they face as they age and the struggles I faced growing up. For example, when I was a child, they were always telling me to be careful. I often heard “don’t do that, you’ll hurt yourself” or “stop jumping on the bed before you fall”. They were worried that I would hurt myself and break a bone. Because of that, they were always worrying and looking over me.
I am sure that most of us remember similar conversations growing up. Now that I am older, I find myself having those same conversations, only this time it’s me worried about my parents’ safety. I finally understand what I put them through, but I have the same loving concern for their safety that they had for me.
Over the years, I have felt the frustrations and have seen others struggle trying figure out the puzzle that is aging with grace. Constant changes to Medicare or our health care system leaves us lost and wondering “why can’t this be easier”.
However, there is good news! We can help! I encourage you to experience the passion we have at Talem Home Care that makes us so successful in helping others live their lives to the fullest. My commitment to you is that you will always have someone on your side helping you navigate through the challenges you face as you age. I am honored to be in a position to help and want to thank all of you who have and continue to allow all of us to be a part of your life!
