“Over the past several years I’ve been part of my family’s personal care ‘team,’ supporting my father with his very complicated personal health care journey and more recently supporting my 96-year-old mother-in-law who passed away on her own terms, living independently in her own home. I was honored to share their journeys, and they were fortunate to have family available to help. The truth is, receiving care at home, and living your best life right through to the end is a luxury for so many. This is especially true as our society ages and healthcare becomes more complex. I joined ConcertoCare because of our mission to ensure each patient receives the kind of compassionate care they would get from a loved one, guided by ‘what matters most’ to the people we serve.”
