Our Philosophy of Non-Medical Home Care

Our philosophy of non-medical home care is to never compromise on providing high quality services to your family. We only employ high quality caregivers. At Destiny Senior Care we are here to serve you! Call today to schedule an appointment!

You won’t get “lost in the shuffle” with us. Some agencies are too big or simply react to calls from their clients rather than anticipating your needs in advance. We begin by reviewing your needs through discussions with involved family members.

When necessary we consult with the care recipient’s healthcare providers. Our service coordinator carefully selects the caregiver with the necessary experience and personality that is best suited to the needs of each client.

Next, we arrange for the caregiver to visit your home so that you can participate in the selection process. After service begins, we implement our system of ongoing personalized contacts with your family, to see to it that the care recipient is receiving the best possible care.

Anna Nestor, Founder

The journey of life has been quite an experience! I am very blessed to be married for forty years to a great man, have four beautiful children, three lovely daughters-in-law, and eight adorable grandchildren. My family is my greatest accomplishment.

Education and teaching children have always been the core of my life. I am proud to say that God, my family, and career give me tremendous JOY. As a child, working alongside my mother in her pre-school, I saw her passion for teaching children and it instilled in me a true LOVE FOR LEARNING.

After fifty years in early childhood education and owning several child care centers I decided to pass the baton. Our children are the third generation in our family to start schools and after seeing their success and passion I decided to venture into another area of caregiving, seniors! I thought, I’m not going to retire I’m going to RE-FIRE!

Working with seniors reminds me of my wonderful years teaching children… loving, laughing, and appreciating the joys of life. HAPPY SENIORS singing old favorite tunes is music to my ears. Now I get to continue doing what I love with a new generation.

Of course, my own education continues. I am currently working on my DOCTORATE in education and WRITING an INSPIRATIONAL BOOK for seniors.

Home is where our story begins

My husband Brendan and I were both born in Ireland. My mom had cancer the last several months of her life. Our family along with other siblings and their children took part in Gramma’s care.

My mom, Mary Sears, never wanted to go to a “nursing home” as she put it! My brother was her major caregiver because he lived with her.

Bridie was a caregiver whom we hired. She was with mom twenty hours a week. Bridie was great – she loved caring for my mom.

This is key when seeking a caregiver, as they need to love their work. It’s really a calling.

Bridie cooked my mom’s meals and took care of her while everyone worked. We all loved Bridie and through it all there were many tears but more laughter. On afternoons and weekends we all pitched in. Many hands make light work.

It usually takes a while for a client to feel comfortable with their caregiver. Mom was no different. A relationship – a friendship – does not happen overnight. But Bridie was consistent. She kept offering mom her service in a caring way. One day we knew a threshold had been crossed when Bridie told us, “Your mom touched my hand today.”

Mary Sears

My mom had seven children, 24 grandchildren and 36 greats, and more on the way. Her legacy keeps living on!

A family becomes closer before, during and after taking care of a loved one. When you all come together the end of life process can be peaceful. Love conquers all!

The greatest gift of all is Love.

Love binds us all together in perfect harmony.

It creates a thankfulness and peace that surpasses all understanding.
