Guided Living’s History

My name is Patrick Flaherty and I founded Guided Living after seeing the difficulties of finding trustworthy and reliable in-home care. I wanted to create a company where the quality of care and communication with clients and their families were the unwavering top priorities.

We have incorporated great technology into the company like our online family portal that gives families a real time look into our care. One of our goals is to build trust and show accountability to clients and their families through transparency.

Also at no additional cost, each client has a dedicated Registered Nurse Care Manager that will supervise caregivers, perform regular in home check ins, and most importantly be available for clients and families to help navigate through tough questions and uncertainties during difficult times.

The Guided Living Team treats our clients and their families as our own.
We’re in this business because of our passion for care and it’s our #1 priority.

Her experience is uniquely blended with skills developed towards continuous quality improvement, team building and management of staff who provide care.
