    About My Business
    My name is Joddy Smith, founder and President of Sharing Hearts Home Care, LLC. This past April I launched Sharing Hearts upon the encouragement of past clients and families that I have worked for. With their mentorship and the business guidance of the team I have aboard, I now have the opportunity to achieve my dream of caring for many people at once vs. only one at a time.

    I am very excited to open my own home care agency knowing that I can train and guide other caregivers to perform at the standard that helped me accomplish so much, gaining the respect and endorsement of those families which whom I’ve had the privilege of caring.

    As I set out on my new endeavor, I will have to do things new to me like sales and marketing. But what is not new to me is caring. I’ve been caring for people since I was old enough to work, and I’ve been the lead caregiver wherever I have worked including the only caregiver to help a woman live a happier, healthier life when no other agency could handle her. This experience was my springboard to opening Sharing Hearts.

    Please allow me the opportunity to come by and share some more information about myself, the Sharing Hearts standard of care, and some of the many features that make Sharing Hearts Home Care an option for you to consider when referring a home care agency. In addition, I would like to learn about your expectations and needs when it comes to using a reliable and respected home care company.

    About My Services
    Below is a list of our services. Your specific care needs may require a little of each in which case we can customize a plan that will meet your specific care needs.

    Home Support Services
    Home support service focuses on daily care of the home and meals. In addition to light housekeeping needs such as vacuuming, dusting, dishes, laundry, ironing, changing beds, cleaning appliances and cabinets, washing floors, and taking out trash, among other things, home support also includes meal preparation on a daily basis along with special occasions such as holidays and guest entertaining. And if needed, pet care and gardening as well.

    Companion Care Services
    Companion care service is focused primarily on kindness, friendship, and bringing joy to one’s spirits. These are the activities that fill one’s heart, keep the mind active and engaged, and are the foundation of our care. Companionship goes well beyond engaging conversation to include client preferred activities such as playing games, cards, crafts, writing, reading, walking, cooking, entertaining, planning, holiday and special occasion baking, assisting in entertaining friends and family, visiting friends and neighbors, shopping, event attendance like plays, movies and religious services, medication and appointment reminders, holiday and birthday card writing and remembering, and much more.

    Personal Care Services

    In addition to companionship, our personal care service includes assisting the client with daily tasks such as grooming (hair care, shaving, cleaning, teeth/dentures, makeup, dressing), hygiene (tub, bed, or sponge baths, showers, toileting), mobilization (turning, lifts, transfers, exercise, walking), eating/feeding, and much more.

    Alzheimer’s and Dementia Care

    Safety and attention to detail are necessities when caring for a loved one with either Alzheimer’s or Dementia. Sharing Hearts will work with you to establish a safer and more comfortable home. Trusting relationships and techniques will be utilized to maximize independence and happiness for as long as possible. Our specialized approach of encouragement, consistency, and assistance helps family members cope with the challenges of Alzheimer’s and other dementia illnesses.

    Hospital Sitter

    Anyone who has ever stayed with a loved one in a hospital knows that despite the best of intentions, hospital staff can not be at your loved one’s side throughout the day. Random visits by staff is not always enough to keep a loved one from stumbling out of bed, calling for assistance should pain become unbearable, or emotionally support a lonely patient whose family can not always be available. Sharing Hearts’ hospital sitters act on behalf of your loved one when you are unable to be at the hospital yourself. From companionship to aiding to the rest room or just getting away from the bed for a moment, our hospital sitters can help lift your loved ones spirits during their hospital stay.

    Twenty-Four Hour Companion Care

    For some families, a loved one may reach a point where twenty-four hour care is most helpful. These long hours can be taxing and so two specific rates will apply. For this one, twenty-four hour companion care is defined by having a sleep over caregiver at your loved one’s bedside and needing assistance about three or less times per night. During the daily care, the companion care services as identified above apply.

    Twenty-Four Hour Personal Care

    This particular care is different than the care above in that the loved one will need assistance four or more times per night. During the daily care, the personal care services as identified above apply.

    Sharing Hearts’ caregivers are carefully screened, bonded, insured, and receive continuous training and evaluation. Our team has a commitment to care and we strive to always meet the Sharing Hearts’ standards of excellence.
