Local Ownership – Empowering Others One Community At A Time
When it comes to the care and safety of taking care of our loved ones, we feel that no-one can do it better than local owners who know and understand your community. To us, the best decision makers in running a business are local owners who are connected to the communities we serve. Their participation in the community can reflect and shape not only the quality of care, but it can also have influence with local government and policy makers.
Locally owned businesses are important for creating a culture and value for the community and it allows for them build personal connections and relationships with the communities we serve. There is nothing better than that small town feeling when you meet the owner of the company you are working with. With the owner always present, the staff is always polite, and you always feel the comfort of knowing that your happiness is our priority.
