What's a family to do? Rob and Kirsten Hodgson moved to Florida from New Hampshire to care for Esther. With their own married life to manage, however, Rob and Kirsten knew they needed help in caring for Esther and began a search to find competent, caring, affordable care assistance. Their search turned up very little. In fact, there was a relative void in Central Florida for the type of home care services they sought. Clearly, a resource was needed.
Being "go-getters," Rob and Kirsten solved the problem for themselves and hundreds of other families by establishing Granny NANNIES of North America to offer specialized private duty home care services for the elderly.
And the rest is history! Since 1990, Granny NANNIES has grown into a successful licensed nursing agency with numerous company owned and owner/operated-franchised locations serving thousands of the community's elderly and individuals in need of special needs care. The company has stayed true to its original mission as "A Nursing Agency committed to providing the highest quality of compassionate care to its clients who are seeking independent living in the comfort of their own homes or other suitable environment."
Esther - who credits her longevity and wellbeing to Granny NANNIES - is still being lovingly cared for in the family's home by her family and original "nanny" and best friend, Louise. Says her grandson Rob, giving credit where it's due, "She's the reason we started it all!"
