Our Family. Caring for Yours.

This is more than a company tagline. It is personal. Taking care of your family is our calling. 

Azalea Home Care is committed to providing superior Personal Care Services at the lowest possible cost while maintaining the highest level of respect, dignity and appreciation for our customers and their family members.

Why? Because we’ve been there before. Our business and services are built around personal experiences with senior healthcare and family loss. We understand that it can be frightening and painful to see someone you love struggling to care for themselves and we work to make the process of transitioning to ‘aging at home’ as smooth as possible.

For context, I grew up in Georgia. After graduating from Georgia State University I began my career in the hospitality industry and gained national recognition while working for Starwood Hotels, known today as Marriott International. In addition, I spent a lot of time organizing and running many charity events for groups such as Autism Speaks, the Atlanta Food Bank, Toys for Tots, and the American Cancer Society. During this time, I gained valuable experience with customer and community service. 

I decided to start my journey in Care Management and Home Care solutions, in the memory of my late Grandmother, who during the last years of her life, was treated by countless healthcare professionals that came into her home and treated her with respect and dignity, as if she was one of their own. From this experience, I knew it was time to pursue a career to match my background and honor her memory. 

Born in 1919, my grandmother did a lot of charitable work across different parts of Africa during the years that she lived there. Helping others and caring for those in need was a major part of what my Grandmother believed in. Even as one of her final acts, she became one of the primary donors to the creation of a religious community centre in Northeast Georgia.  Whilst on her own journey of ‘aging at home’, my grandmother encouraged me to keep caring for people and motivated me to pursue this career path as she witnessed a similar passion for helping others in need.

We understand the burdens and difficulties of caring for elderly or disabled individuals and we work to meet each family’s particular needs by offering flexibility in the assistance packages we offer, be it hourly, daily or by specific assignment.

Our services include but are not limited to:

  • Personal care

  • Incidental transportation

  • Outpatient assistance 

  • Relocation assistance

  • Shared Services 

  • Live-in services

  • Meal preparation 

  • Respite or relief for family 

Driven by passion and personal experience, our ethos has allowed us to grow steadily throughout the years. It has also contributed to the long standing loyalty and relationships we have formed with our caregivers, many of whom have been with us for many years. 

Our family takes care of the thing you value most. We do not take that duty for granted. We pride ourselves in giving our customers peace of mind by answering tough questions and guiding them through the entire senior healthcare journey. 

By servicing the needs of our valued members and helping our community, we at Azalea Home Care feel we are making a difference.
