Champions of Joy in Aging
What began as a very personal challenge for our family in managing the care of our beloved mother has morphed into a company that is now a leader in the in-home non-medical care provision in Southern California.
In 2008 our 83 year old mother was diagnosed with stage 4 lung cancer. The prognosis was terminal. It was very important for us to ensure that she received the best care possible throughout her final days. In the beginning we accepted the responsibility and assisted her with all of her care needs, but over time her needs morphed into 24 hours a day, 7 days a week care and we needed help. We decided to hire a caregiver and reached out to our mom's home health company, hospice company, and doctors for referrals. They provided us with referrals and we went through the process of calling local providers, but in general, we as a family did not feel comfortable with the providers that were sent over for interviews nor were we satisfied with how long it took to get care givers for interviews. Our mom was blessed to have lived in our family home for 15 years after the death of her husband (our Dad). We had young children in the home, so it was extremely important to us to find someone that we not only trusted to provide care for our mother, but also someone that we could trust around our children.
The experience of finding a caregiver that we were all comfortable with and felt was qualified to care for our mother was rather challenging and stressful. After not having any success in finding the right caregiver, we decided to create our own solution and founded Livewell Private Care. As a busy mom, wife and entrepreneur, it was paramount that we partnered with caregivers that would provide our mom and children’s grandmother with the best love and care, especially in her last year of life. Our professional and caring care givers provided our family with the respite needed to be there to enjoy mom’s last months and days of her life. Without our caring providers, I am not sure we would have navigated that part of our journey with strength and dignity for our mom. What began as a personal solution for our own family has grown to become a solution to other families looking for care for their loved one.
In memory of our mom, Livewell Private Care continues to provide the loving, professional and tender care that families have come to expect from our Livewell brand. Our focus is on hiring and placing the most qualified and credentialed care providers so that our clients and their families can rest assured and knowing that their loved ones are in the best hands.
