About Us

We are a small business, dedicated to providing quality care to you and your loved one. We can provide flexible care to meet the most individual and specialized needs as possible. We are located right in Northeastern Wisconsin, and we know your neighborhood. We can provide the personal touches that other larger companies may not. The staff are trained to care for you or your loved one like they would for their own. Thank you for your consideration of our services. It will be an honor and privilege to serve you.

This division of Jay’s Legacy was created to honor the memory of my father, who was truly a man of great virtue, integrity and love. I dedicate the mission of this company to provide quality of care and compassion in his honor. With this mission as our guiding principle, we will offer the care for you, or your family, as you all so richly deserve. You are our priority! Our service is to keep you, or your loved one, healthy, happy, supported and living at home. This is paramount to us.

Let us serve and provide for you and your needs.

It has been my true pleasure to serve the needs of others for the past 28 years. During this journey, I have had the privilege to serve many people with a variety of needs (those with cognitive disabilities, mental health issues, young, elderly and everyone in between!)  I have worked in hospitals, nursing homes, home care and primarily residential group home settings. I believe that it is so important to choose a career that inspires you to be a  better person. This career has been a true calling and my mission to help others! The benefit to helping others has been more gratifying than I could ever have imagined. I believe I was meant to lead staff to find their passion in helping others. My philosophy is to create work environments where staff truly love what they do. In turn, they are passionate about providing the best possible service to you. Your satisfaction is paramount to us! We will work diligently to enrich your life, not just “come in to do the job”. This mission is personal to me and our relationship with you and your family needs to be too. We are a small company so that we can create a personal connection! We believe you will prefer it that way!

HR Director


I have enjoyed working in this field for just over 10 years now. There is always something new to learn! Over the last few years, I have learned many things while working with Human Resource personnel and working directly with staff on scheduling. I enjoy reading nonfiction books and vacationing with my son.
