Local Home Care Agency Celebrates 3rd Anniversary
Live Free Home Health Care, LLC Expands Services to Elderly NH Residents
October 1, 2009 – Bristol, New Hampshire — After providing care for hundreds of clients, New Hampshire-based Live Free Home Health Care, LLC is celebrating its 3rd year of operation.
“Over the last three years we have seen first-hand the freedom, joy and independence that come from helping our clients stay in their homes. We are so pleased to be able to offer home care solutions to our clients, spanning all types of care needs,” owner Jason Harvey said. “We are actively seeing our business grow as adult children of elderly parents continue to seek our care so their parents can remain safely in their own homes.”
Since its 2006 inception, Live Free Home Health Care has continued to grow and has expanded into larger offices in Bristol. In 2009, the company introduced two new services, the first being personal care providers/companion caregivers, which offers home care services such as meal planning, light housekeeping, companionship, errands, etc.
Seeing a need from three years of client cases, Live Free Home Health Care also added a personal emergency response system as well as monitored medication dispenses to assist those clients who have trouble remembering to take their medication. Medication non-compliance can be attributed to approximately 30% of hospitalizations for people over age 65.
Harvey continued, “Our new personal care providers/companion caregivers allow us to become a truly “full service agency” offering non-licensed companion home care all the way to licensed nursing services and skilled nursing. It is our vision to serve the families of central New Hampshire with all of their home care needs. For example, we might start off providing care with our non-licensed companion caregivers, and as our client ages or as additional needs arise, we can also provide more hands-on care with our skilled nursing services.”
“From the outset our goal was to stand apart from other agencies by spanning all possible care needs. We don’t want our clients to have to worry about continuity of care. We also give clients peace of mind because all of our care services are directed and supervised by a registered nurse. Whether skilled nursing or non-medical care is needed, a registered nurse works with the family, helps create the care plan and coordinates with the primary care physician. Our clients enjoy the benefits of a full service agency, but receive the care and feel of a family owned business,” concluded Harvey.
Fulfilling a longtime dream, owners Jason and Jennifer Harvey have found a perfect marriage for their unique talents with their agency – Jennifer, RN and BSN, as director of patient services, and Jason as business and finance manager. Perhaps more important than their professional experience is the passion and commitment they bring to the business. They are eager to make a difference not only in the lives of their patients but also in the lives of their staff.
