Happy New Year!
2018 is looking pretty promising, and we are truly looking forward to working hard to deliver the best care that Tallahassee has seen. But, first, let’s recap.
2017 was a big year for us- we began our senior in-home non-medical care business; hired our first caregivers; landed our first clients; we met with some great people who have become constituents; built and continue to maintain community partnerships with all sorts of organizations- hospitals, rehabilitation facilities, skilled nursing facilities, assisted living homes, memory care units, and more; sponsored an event at the Tallahassee Senior Center (L3X- Lifelong Learning Expo) and participated in another TSC event (Active Living Expo); attended meet & greets, open houses, and networking events; participated in a Halloween trunk-or-treat at HarborChase (not to brag, but we also won best decorated car!); participated in Elder Care Service’s Elder Elf program (similar to adopt a family for Christmas- type program) and sponsored 3 local seniors by providing gifts for the holiday season; visited numerous locations to distribute brochures; have grown our community and online presence; place our first ever order for company paraphernalia with our logo on it (pens, woohoo!), and then stationary, and then hats; spent countless hours educating ourselves on field-related news and happenings, tips for growth, ideas for marketing, questions to ask when networking; we’ve even grown our own family and welcomed baby #2 on Christmas Eve; the list goes on, and on, and on…
We have tried so many new things this past year. Tried, and failed, tried some more, and then succeeded. But, all that said, this doesn’t mean we’ve gotten comfortable. We want to continue learning and growing and improving and reaching for higher heights. We really want to live up to our name and provide care that Feels Like Family. We want to make sure people are comfortable in their later stages of life. We want to show you- our biggest supporters- that we will never settle for “okay”. We are getting ready to participate in a 10-week training to improve our methods even further, and learn how we can serve- you, the community, Tallahassee, our home- better.
Because we are a family-run business, we want to stay connected with you, our extended family- stay involved with us, keep us accountable, ask us questions. We want to ask you some questions too- what have we done to impress you? What have we done that leaves room for improvement? Where would you like to see us in 1 year, 3 years, 5 years? What services would you like to see included in our lineup?
Many thanks for all of the support we’ve received thus far. Our Family has grown (truly- in terms of our business, and we welcomed a new little person on Christmas eve to make us a family of 4 now) and we don’t plan on stopping any time soon. We’ve come so far already, but still have a long way to go. So, watch out 2018- we’re coming for you!
