About Caring Connections

 

mary_and_steve_gagneCaring Connections is local and family operated. We are devoted to setting the standard for non medical in home care in the areas we service throughout North Florida and Southern Georgia. Owners Steve and Mary Gagne are passionate about providing the best care possible while allowing seniors to stay in their homes.

Steve has spent the last 26 years working for Walgreens. During his career he spent many hours in nursing homes and assisted living homes providing seniors with much needed information on various health issues. His greatest joy was being able to put a smile on their faces while entertaining them with various activities.

Mary has spent the last 25 years caring for her family. She raised three children being active in every aspect of their life. She has volunteered in all of their activities, from Den Mother for their son Christopher, to helping coach basketball with their middle daughter, Amanda to coaching their youngest daughter, Kelli’s volleyball team. Throughout the years, Mary was a substitute teacher, mainly focusing in special needs classrooms.

As much as we wanted to keep our parents with us, it was obvious they wanted to be in their own homes. After a year, we set out on a journey to hire care givers for our parents. Little did we know what a long and tedious job that would be. We’ve had some outstanding caregivers and some not so great ones.

In 2015, after living in Indiana for 15 years, we made the decision to move back to Mary’s home state of Florida. We knew immediately that we wanted to do something rewarding and fulfilling and that helping seniors was the direction we wanted to focus on. That is how Caring Connections came to life.

momThe quality of care varies from agency to agency. We encourage all those considering in home care to research several different agencies. Many do not realize the implications or possible consequences of hiring caregivers. All of our caregivers are hand picked by us. They are employed by Caring Connections and are screened, trained, bonded and insured so our clients do not have the liability of having independent contractors in their homes.

Our caregivers are compassionate and caring people with big hearts. We take pride in knowing that we have done our due diligence to provide the most up to date training in the industry for our caregivers. We feel this combination is a win win for our clients. Call us to experience the advantages of Caring Connections where your loved ones can be home……but never alone.
