The owners of Aging Allies have been providing local seniors and families with education, guidance, and support services for many years. Cindy Brown started in the home health care business in 1997. Little did she know that it would be the most rewarding career to pursue. Her experience has helped many families across the country. Her philosophy is that every one of us will require assistance at some point during the aging process.
Cindy embraces the fact that we want to remain independent and in our own homes. The respect and dignity of our seniors is the most important part of this planning process. Cindy has not only assisted families and seniors but is also part of the “sandwich” generation. Trying to raise her own family and coordinating care for her grandmother and mother.
It was Cindy’s grandmother who inspired her to continue her career. As stressful and complicated caregiving can be, her grandmother made a statement that Cindy still relives every day. Cindy was going to pursue other options, and when she made this known, her grandmother said, “Why would you do that when you are helping so many people?” Cindy slept on that statement, and ever since that day she made a commitment and took it to 150% to continue her journey of assisting caregivers.
She has over 20 years of direct experience focusing on the needs of older adults, caregivers, and family members. She has the highest standards for providing comprehensive care and services and has helped numerous families.
She has a bachelors in Social Work, is a Qualified Dementia Care Specialist and Provider, earned her case management certificate at Boston University, and is a Professional Guardian. Cindy’s past work experiences with other companies were as a Vice President, Administrator, and Finance Manager for a Nurse Registry, a Home Health Agency, and Care Management companies.
Cindy’s partner is her son Don Starr. Don was trying to determine his own career path when he was brought into one of the companies that Cindy worked for. He was the head of finance, including billing and accounts receivable. He has been in home care since 2004 and assists with submitting insurance claims, advocating for patients and families for the benefits they desperately deserve, and managing the billable hours of all services. He is dedicated to the same philosophy of family values.
Family values are the key to how we operate. Our clients, employees and contractors are family. Everyone is treated professionally, with love in their heart to be able to achieve our mission and goals. We want you to become part of that family.
Care Managers are independent contractors that can create, implement, and supervise your client objectives and goals. Meet some of them here.
Caregivers are independent contractors. An independent contractor is a person, business, or corporation that provides goods or services under a written contract or a verbal agreement. Unlike employees, independent contractors do not work regularly for an employer but work as they choose.
We assist seniors with tasks such as getting ready in the morning and settling in for the night.
We help in maintaining a household and an independent life, such as cooking, cleaning, laundry, sewing, and similar tasks.
Our professional caregivers are available to simply be there, giving your loved one some quality company and friendship.
We can handle medication schedules so your loved ones take them when they should with the correct dosage.
Although we attempt to avoid guardianship, sometimes it is necessary. A guardian is a person who is legally responsible for managing the affairs of an incapacitated person.
