My mom’s Acti-Kare caregiver, Sandy, goes above and beyond to make my mom feel special, help her get to appointments, and keep up with things. She is truly a special lady and working with Acti-Kare has been great! I would highly recommend this company.
Spring Hill, FL (PRWEB) October 24, 2014
T.J. Hedick, Owner and Area Director for Acti-Kare in Spring Hill, has a family lineage that spans four generations here in Hernando County. Part of the reason TJ decided to bring Acti-Kare to the area is his passion for the local community, and specifically its senior population. “I was raised to have the utmost respect and admiration for the seniors in our community.” Hedick said. After leaving the area briefly to study business management and marketing, he always felt compelled to return home. "Even during my time away at school, I always knew I had a desire to enrich and invest in people’s lives.” So Hedick began to research opportunities that would allow him to pair his business expertise with his desire to give back to his community, and that is when he discovered Acti-Kare.
“When I began to think about our community, I focused on the people who had taught me so much and instilled such great values in me throughout my youth. I quickly realized that it was the senior community that had made such a huge impact in my life and this was exactly who I wanted to serve.” Hedick opened Acti-Kare in 2013 as a way to give seniors the help and care they needed to remain independent and safe in their own homes for as long as possible.
Acti-Kare of Spring Hill provides all aspects of care services, from basic companion support to personal care services. These services can range anywhere from simply transporting clients to and from the grocery store or doctor’s office, to 24 hour in-home care, including bathing, toileting, and grooming. Hedick and Acti-Kare are also very passionate about helping with patients who suffer from Alzheimer's Disease or dementia. “Many senior care companies simply aren’t equipped to deal with these diseases. Dementia has affected my own family in a very real and personal way. I knew I wanted to be involved in making life better for the individuals, and the families, that suffer from dealing with these diseases"
Acti-Kare’s holistic approach to care was also one of the main reasons Hedick was attracted to the company. Unlike anything else being offered in the industry, Acti-Kare's "Acti-Vate" program is a multidimensional approach to care that focuses on an individual’s body, mind, and spirit through proper nutrition, physical activity, and mental stimulation. Hedick found that, “Most companies focused on keeping people sedentary and comfortable. But by partnering with experts in their respective fields, Acti-Kare created a way to help people live life to the fullest no matter what capabilities or limitations they may have. We want to help people embrace their senior years and enjoy life.”
And the response from the Spring Hill community has been overwhelmingly positive. Barb C., a client of Hedick's, said this about Acti-Kare services, “All I can say is thank you so much! We had recently lost my father when we called on TJ and the Acti-Kare team. Mom moved in with me but was in poor health as well and needed someone to help care for her when I worked. TJ paired us with an absolute angel (Angie). She took care of my mother like she was her own. She quickly became part of the family! My mother would not have been able to remain at home without the amazing help of Acti-Kare. It's truly been a blessing.”
Another client, Donna, had this to say, “My mom means the world to me. Since my dad passed last year it has been a tough road for her and physically she is not able to do what she used to. I live up north and was told about Acti-Kare by my mom’s neighbor. What a blessing they have been. My mom’s Acti-Kare caregiver, Sandy, goes above and beyond to make my mom feel special, help her get to appointments, and keep up with things. She is truly a special lady and working with Acti-Kare has been great! I would highly recommend this company.”
It is Hedick's commitment to quality, and dedication to helping seniors remain active members of the community, that have allowed him to expand his operation so quickly. Hedick is proud to announce that Acti-Kare of Spring Hill is now accepting new clients in Spring Hill, Brooksville, Inverness, Hudson, Weeki Wachee, Crystal River, Homosassa, Lecanto, Beverly Hills, Hernando Beach, and New Port Richey.
