A Charlotte Home Care Agency
That Provides Peace of Mind
We know your first priority when choosing a home care provider is finding someone you can trust and rely on… someone who will care for your loved one as you would, and as we would our own. We’ve been where you are, and this is one of the main reasons we chose to be in this business.
Ken Fleming- Owner/President
Since I was a boy, I have always enjoyed being around seniors: making weekly visits to my maternal grandmother and grandfather in their nursing home, sitting around the potbelly stove in my paternal grandfather’s house, singing in nursing homes as part of a youth choir, sitting at the foot of my neighbors’ rocking chairs on their big porch, and later on in life spending four days in the Okefenokee swamp in a wooden canoe that was built by my 82-year-old paddling partner, and performing tasks and projects for my wife’s grandmother and great aunt in their 80s and 90s.
After a professional career leading large departments and organizations with hundreds of people at Fidelity Investments and Ceridian Human Capital Management and helping those same companies, as well as Wells Fargo Securities, with their technology, compliance, and operations projects, I am delighted to bring over two decades of leadership experience to my own company with a direct mission to help others. As the only veteran-owned home care company in North Carolina I especially enjoy helping fellow veterans. I know that everyone that served gave a lot and deserves to be cared for when they need assistance.
Mary Ellen Fleming-Owner/Vice President Client Relationships
Being a caregiver is both the toughest and most rewarding job that someone can do for another person. Coming from a large family, I have often been in that role, helping senior members of my family. In addition, I have experienced what it is like to have someone else come and care for those you love. As a parent of a young adult with special needs, I have seen how rewarding and empowering it can be for our son to have a caring and compassionate caregiver. The right person can enrich his life in so many ways.
After many years working in hospitals and medical practices, as well as financial services, I have combined the skills I have learned with my personal experiences to help families find the right caregiver for their loved one. Because seniors often face many health, social and financial issues that affect their lives, I studied to become a Certified Senior Advisor®, a designation that requires a commitment to high standards, continuing education, professional ethics, and trust. This certification helps to provide me with the knowledge and information necessary to assist seniors at a time when they need it most.
