At Your Service! In-home Companion Care for Seniors, is a new venture for Fahrney Keedy Senior Living Community, which has been existence since 1905.  We are a faith-based community, offering Independent Living, Assisted Living, Skilled Nursing Care, and now In-Home Services expanding our mission of “Enriching the Lives of Seniors” into the surrounding community.  Recognizing the fact that 90% of the senior population would prefer to stay in the comfort and familiarity of their own home, At Your Service! can provide those much needed non-medical services to allow them the freedom of choice to remain in familiar surroundings for as long as possible.

Testimonials

At Your Service!  In-home Companion Care for Seniors, is an affordable option for those needing a little more assistance with everyday tasks.  We’re exceptionally proud of our staff and confident of the quality of our services  but don’t take our word for it,  listen to what our actual customers and families say . . .

“Spring was in the air and it was time to have a more thorough cleaning undertaken in our home.  Amanda worked with efficiency and remained focused throughout the time (5 hrs.)  She responded professionally to any suggestion or question I had.  It was a joy to have her working in our home (this was the first time I had requested service from At Your Service! In-Home Companion Care for Seniors).  I would recommend her service any time, and I look forward to her return later this year.”  – Elisabeth

 

“On behalf of the family of Kenneth P. Hiett I would like to commend you and your staff for the excellent care that “At Your Service” has provided to my father. Everyone of your team has showed great compassion and have been very helpful.  At nearly 98 years of age he is very particular about his caregivers and their ability to respond to his varying needs.  He enjoys their company and their willingness to take on every chore assigned.  He especially enjoys the ability of your staff to take him to church each Sunday.  Contact with others is an important aspect of his life, especially his church family.  You promised good care WITH reliability and have delivered on that promise.  I would not hesitate recommending your in-home care program to any family that is dependent on the extra care needed to keep a loved-one at their home as long as possible.”Jan Hiett  Hagerstown, Maryland

My mother likes “CL” very much and she says she helps out a lot – this morning when I called she was awake at 9:30 and waiting on her to come. I am glad my mother is in better spirits and getting up feeling like she has company to look forward to. RH
