Lynda Boone has personal experience with elderly loved ones being cared for in facilities. She came away from these experiences with the strong feeling that, when possible, it’s best to age at home with help coming to you. Lynda started Angel Helpers to provide care and companionship to individuals who want to remain at home but need help with everyday tasks.

“This is the best scenario for our loved ones,” says Lynda. “You can remain in the comfort and familiarity of your home, family and friends can come and go, and Angel Helpers will be there helping with personal care, meals, medication reminders, errands and more. It’s about a better quality of life with support.”

Aging can be a series of losses. A decline in physical and mental capabilities often results in a loss of independence. Changing the familiar surroundings of home can accelerate this decline.

“The elderly often feel like things are constantly being taken away from them,” says Manager Marquetta Corn. “If they can remain in the comfort of their own homes while receiving the help they need, it can make all the difference in their health and well-being.”

Marquetta knows firsthand the difference that remaining at home can make. She met Lynda while she was a caregiver at a facility and caring for Lynda’s relative.

“I saw how Marquetta cared for my loved one and what a great support she was for our family,” says Lynda. “But there were things that were out of her control. It’s just the nature of the situation. I wanted to be able to provide care and comfort for people so they could remain in their homes, so I started Angel Helpers and brought Marquetta with me. I couldn’t have anyone better to care for clients and train new employees.”

Along with Marquetta, Val Springston is an Angel Helpers manager with experience in both a facility setting and home care.

“I cared for my own mother in her home after her dementia diagnosis,” says Val. “I had also worked in a facility and Covid-19 changed things. Families were unable to see their loved ones, which was frustrating, and the residents lost many of their activities and interactions. The isolation was devastating. I wanted to concentrate on home care. At the end of the day, I know I’ve done something to really help people.”

Angel Helpers specializes in dementia and hospice care and works with the hospice team to offer extra support.

“Hospice can’t be there 24/7,” says Lynda. “We are that extra person in the home who knows the patient, knows their needs and provides that extra layer of support for them and their family.”

Lynda, Marquetta and Val pride themselves on their ability to match caregivers to clients. All of them say the most important thing is trust.

“We first get to know the client and the family,” says Marquetta. “Everyone has to be comfortable and know what’s expected. Some want a lot of involvement of the caregiver and some clients do not. We take it all into consideration and find the perfect match. It has to be right.”

Whether it’s full-time care or just a few hours a week, Angel Helpers will match the need.

“We are privileged to be a part of this stage of our clients’ lives and help them stay in their homes,” says Lynda. “After all, home is best.”
