Price will be determined based on travel,  mileage, travel days.  I will ensure your loved one has all of the appropriate necessities—including prescription medicines—packed up and ready to go. Additionally, before they depart from the home, I'll make sure the house is secure for when they return (lights off, doors locked), so that there are no surprises waiting upon their arrival back from wherever it was they went! Whether it's an outing for some relaxation or an extended trip across the country to live closer to family and friends, my job is a mix of logistics coordinator and caretaker; giving you peace of mind knowing that while you're busy working or caring for other responsibilities at home, someone else takes care of theirs.

Will I receive updates about my loved ones?

All services include a text or email to clients after a visit to alert them to any changes or needs of the individual receiving services.
