Ms. Steele didn’t want to see her own mother in a nursing home and thought that home health care was a much better solution than seeing her mother institutionalized. She also thought it would be advantageous to other families and set about seeing this become a reality.
‘We are here because we want all individuals to have a good experience… As good as they can while they are in this life. We don’t want you to be institutionalized; we want you to be in your own environment, we want you to have your family, peers and pets around you. Life should be warm and fuzzy not spent in a hospital room.”
