Elder Care of North Alabama, LLC became an organization on January 1, 2005. An office was acquired at 1426 5th Avenue, SE in Decatur, Alabama. Elder Care of North Alabama’s mission was, and is, dedicated to providing excellent in home care services to individuals needing assistance in daily living activities. The purpose of these services is to allow individuals to remain in their home environment and to continue to function with the greatest personal independence possible. Initially, we assess the client’s needs and develop an individualized plan of care. We introduce the home care aide (HCA) that will provide these needed services to the client. These health and home care needs are documented and monitored. A few experienced caregivers were hired as soon as the office was obtained. The first training session for caregivers was held on January 6th, 2005 in the office. Elder Care became a Limited Liability Corporation on February 7, 2005.
