Richmond, VA (PRWEB) June 28, 2012
As she watched her grandparents (who are in their 90's) age, Monica realized that there is a great deal of life still to be lived for senior citizens, but that a helping hand is often needed to realize the best quality of life available. And so the Richmond-based Acti-Kare franchise was born: out of a desire to make lives better and to care for the needs of the community.
Acti-Kare, a rapidly-growing and ambitious in-home care company, is pleased to announce that the Richmond, VA branch of Acti-Kare is now open and offering comprehensive in-home care. Now serving the Greater Richmond Metropolitan Area, Acti-Kare's new franchise partners are members of a family with deep roots in the local community. The well-known Sharper family is famous for their strong desire to go the whole nine yards. The company's new branch is committed to driving towards the goal of becoming an important part of the premier nationwide provider of in-home care services.
Richmond branch founder Monica-Sharper Brown is passionate about her company's mission. "Most seniors would prefer to stay in their own homes for as long as possible. In-home care allows them to receive the care where they need it and want it." Both Monica and her partner, mother Pauline Sharper, feel strongly that empowering the elderly is the right thing to do. "Our goal is to help seniors to live long, full, and active lives," insists Sharper-Brown. "We want to assist our clients with maintaining their independence, not take it away from them."
Acti-Kare of Richmond offers clients and their families a viable alternative to senior day-care, assisted living facilities, and nursing homes. With Acti-Kare's services allowing them to stay in their own homes while receiving a level of in-home assistance completely customized to their own needs, clients retain their independence. Care is available at all times: daytime, evenings, overnight, week-ends, and even on a live-in basis.
A client's personality and needs determine which caregiver is made available to them, ensuring that every senior is assisted by someone they can form a connection with. There's no switching up of caregivers at Acti-Kare either. Because of this the staff member becomes a part of the client's routine, allowing for stability and a solid bond to be formed.
Depending on what each client requires, the services Acti-Kare offers them vary. Companionship, transportation, meal preparation, light housekeeping, assistance with bathing and grooming, medication reminders, and much more are all options which are made available by through the company.
Acti-Kare's company motto sums up their passionate community-oriented approach to in-home care: "When you can't be with your loved ones, WE CAN." Getting started with a new game plan for a senior in need of assistance is simple, and carries no long-term obligations. A consultation with the staff at Acti-Kare of Richmond is the first step in this process. Prospective clients and their families are encouraged to get in touch today.
