Patrick Flaherty – President & Founder

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.

Our team has set the highest standards for care and each client has a dedicated Registered Nurse 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.

Our Team

Kathleen Armany RN, BC-HN
Kathleen Armany RN, BC-HNRN Client Services Manager
Kathy comes to us with decades of homecare, hospice and managerial experience coupled with a dedication to providing psycho-social support to both caregivers and those dealing with both acute and chronic illness. Kathy is a licensed Registered Nurse and a Board Certified Holistic Nurse honoring the value of caring for the entirety of a person encompassing mind/body/spirit. Her experience is uniquely blended with skills developed towards continuous quality improvement, team building and management of staff who provide care.

Through a personal experience in her twenties in which a family member required extensive clinical care at home, her passion for caring and supporting clients and their families in the community was crystallized. Personally feeling the impact of how supportive care can influence a difficult situation has stayed with her throughout her career.

This passion, perseverance and positive energy will continue to guide our team in provision of care that truly matters and makes a difference for those who choose Guided Living.

Alicia began her career in healthcare over 20 years ago as a hospital receptionist in Boston. Over her career, she has honed her skills in healthcare administration advancing rapidly to management positions. After her own experience requiring homecare, she was determined to work in a position that could better the homecare experience for other individuals.

Rather than return to large hospital administration, she joined Guided Living where the focus is clearly on client care and customer satisfaction. Alicia’s leads the office team and loves the challenge of organizing a perfect schedule for the 100+ staff in the field.

Her first job was working as a transcriptionist and through the years has worked in Physical Therapy, Emergency Department, Oncology and Primary Care.
