Take Care Private Duty Home Health Care and Take Care Advisor focus on the well-being of our clients and our staff and caregivers, and often we look outward to see how we can help our community that supports each one of us. There are certain times throughout the year where we as a company encourage community outreach, and particularly as we step into the month of December, we are reminded of ways we all can give back. All Take Care offices will be sponsoring a family through SPARCC’s Holiday Helper’s Program.

This December, Take Care adopted three families, who all are survivors of domestic violence.  The holidays in particular can be a difficult time, and it is our focus to provide some of the basic necessities to these mothers and children. From clothing to gifts, we collect items from these families’ wish lists, wrap and label the gifts, and deliver to SPARCC on December 11, 2009, so that these families enjoy a brighter holiday.

Take Care asks friends, families, staff, and caregivers to donate what they are able. A list of items requested from the SPARCC families is available in each office in Sarasota, Bradenton, and Venice. Take Care thanks you for giving.

What Our Clients Have to Say

My wife had recent surgery and needed care around the clock. The support I received from the office nurse on care  placement was exceptional. The care provided 12 hours nightly by the nurse, Stacy, was superb. She was above and beyond professional. We could not have done it with out her. Thanks to all involved.
