Established in 1987.
In 1987, Kit Whittington was serving as the primary caregiver for her grandmother, who had been diagnosed with cancer. Kit was the only family member available to help care for her grandmother. Because Kit worked full time, serving as the primary caregiver grew increasingly difficult both physically and emotionally. Kit knew this was unhealthy and unsustainable in the long term.
After scouring ads in papers, yellow pages and magazines, Kit finally found someone she thought was trustworthy enough to care for her grandmother. The woman had advertised herself as a caregiver and was an independent contractor. Over the next few months, there were many tough moments and they ultimately proved unbearable.
Kit's own feelings of helplessness and guilt with the situation fueled her to find a better way of caring for her grandmother. Now, 24 years later Kit continues to remind her staff of the personal struggles she and other families face with end of life decisions.
