About Our Company
Our founder Tina Gillette Shares Her Story
I cherish that time I had with my mom, but it’s also one of the hardest things I’ve ever done. As is often the case, even though there are six children in my family, the hands on care for my mom fell to me and my sister. There wasn’t any service available to help with in home care back then. We learned that although hospice offers an important service, often they only came in twice a week to check on my mom, reset her meds and maybe give her a bath. The rest of the care was up to us.
My sister and I found it was a very intimate time with my mom. She, my dad and I were the last people there, holding her and then we let her go. We said, “It’s time for you to go.” She had one tear that went down her cheek, and she passed away.
I continued on with my life but I thought to myself, there has to be some type of service that would help families through this time. Caretaking can be exhausting and yet it is one of the most precious expressions of love we can give. To be able to help families navigate this journey and give them the practical help they need is such a privilege. I know why I do what I do. We may not be the largest business of our type in Tucson, but we do things for the right reasons and with the same heart I would want for my own mom.”
