When Nate Stokes was ready to change careers in 2008, he knew that he wanted to be in the business of helping others. A few years earlier, his family had traveled the same path that many of our clients have been down. As his grandparents’ health declined, the family gathered to make a plan, for their care, that would help them safely maintain their independence. After discussing different options, they chose a home care agency, which allowed Nate’s grandparents to continue living at home rather than entering a nursing home facility.
Over time, Nate saw how beneficial home care services were to his family. When he heard a Visiting Angels advertisement on the radio, Nate knew he wanted to serve the elderly and their families in Joplin, Carthage, Neosho, and the surrounding area by opening an in-home senior care agency. Now, Nate and the Visiting Angels of Joplin staff are able to offer the kind of home health services that his family benefited from in their time of need. Inspired by our own experiences with elder care, we see the seniors we assist not merely as clients but as part of our family.
