Nettie Towner was a retired nurse who served in World War II.  She spent her entire life giving back and taking care of others.  When her ability to independently manage her everyday needs diminished as a result of a stroke, Pamela, her loving daughter and caregiver, thought she was the only one who could take care of her mother.  As Mrs. Towner’s abilities further declined and she needed more assistance with the basic activities of daily living, Pamela began to appreciate just how difficult and exhausting full-time caregiving can be.
Reaching out to a home care agency for support is often difficult for caregivers; but Pamela knew she needed it. With Patricia, a certified nursing assistant with Family Lifeline’s Home Care Program, she found a trusted partner in helping Mrs. Towner remain happy, taken care of, engaged, supported, safe and at home where she wanted to be.

“I feel great when Patricia is there. I feel comfortable. I feel like I can do what I need to do and not worry. It’s a bright spot in my life.”

Family Lifeline’s Home Care Program works to promote health and wellness of individuals in the comfort and safety of their own home by providing supportive services that delay the need for costly institutional care, prevent illness and injury, and relieve the stresses placed on caregivers.
