The Latest…February 2021
Happy Valentine's Day!
The history of Valentine’s Day–and the story of its patron saint–is shrouded in mystery. We do know that February has long been celebrated as a month of romance and that St. Valentine’s Day, as we know it today, contains vestiges of both Christian and ancient Roman tradition.
Some studies have suggested chocolate could lower cholesterol levels and prevent memory decline. Researchers speculate this is why men buy women chocolates... So they won’t forget about them!

Employee of the Month
Diana came to us as a part-time caregiver last September. She has many years of experience in-home care and facility settings. She moved back to this area to be close to her grandchildren. It wasn’t long before Diana was working full-time, and then some. She seems to be a perfect fit wherever we need her. She’s like the postal service: Rain, sleet or snow, if she’s scheduled you can be sure she will be there. And in Michigan winter, that’s saying something. For Diana caregiving is much more than a job, It’s a calling. She’s a true professional. You see it in her performance every day.
