About Us

Meet Our Team

Lesley and Mark Sullivan, Owner

Lesley and Mark Sullivan, Owner

Both Mark and Lesley grew up with grandparents living with them. That was the norm "way back then." They could see the joys their grandparents brought to their homes, as well as the added stress their parents had in supporting them. When looking for second careers, they focused on senior care, understanding that in this day and age, it's no longer common to invite Grandma or Grandad to move in with their children and grandchildren. Allowing seniors to live safely and independently in their homes for as long as possible resonated with them, and found to be a reasonable goal to help other local families achieve the same for their families.
