Carey Jones, Jr. formed C3 ElderCare. He and his wife, Rosemary, have been caring for elders—uncles, aunts, cousins, parents—in their family for 23 years. When Carey’s mother was diagnosed with Alzheimer’s, he looked diligently but unsuccessfully for a caregiver service whose values echoed those of his family — dependability, compassion, consistentcy, trustworthiness, loyalty, and affordability. He vowed then to start a non-medical caregiver service that he would feel comfortable and safe offering to his own family members.
Jean Mahaffey joined Carey as Executive Director of C3 ElderCare. Jean’s father was blinded when she was 9 years old and her mother died when Jean was 12, so non-medical caregivers were a part of her father’s life for more than 40 years. Although Jean had her own career away from the family home, as an only child she was the long distance caregiver, supervising the paid caregivers, managing the household finances, and attending the medical as well as household crises for more than 30 years. In 2002, when Jean’s aunt who was her “nurturing mother” needed home care, Jean willingly gave up her career as a community college administrator to become her aunt’s in-home caregiver for the next five years.
Carey and Jean’s combined personal experience as caregivers and in supervising caregivers for their own family members has taught them the essential characteristics of outstanding non-medical caregivers—
Reliability— being on-time, focused on the elder and following directions
Initiative— seeing what needs to be done and doing it without reminders
Trustworthiness—consistent quality care of the elder and respect for his/her property
Compassion —kind and patient without patronizing
Loyalty—committed to the elder; proper and timely notification of unavoidable absences
Carey and Jean use creative and unique methods to help meet the needs of the elder while keeping the costs of the services affordable.
