Mindful Living & Care is a personal care agency firmly grounded in mindfulness and it flows through all aspects of the company’s core values. We are an innovative, balanced, and highly efficient agency with the health and wellness of our staff and clients as our top priorities.  The company culture is centered around Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction (MBSR) tactics encouraged through our proprietary education and training programs.

MBSR therapy is designed for stress management, but also has many other applications.  In the care industry, it increases compassion, improves mental health, and fights against loneliness and depression.

In addition to reducing stress and boosting relaxation, mindfulness can lower stress-induced inflammation, which contributes to many physical ailments.

We aim to change the personal care landscape and make mindfulness an industry standard resulting in healthier, happier employees, and superior patient care.

"I’ve spent over a decade managing and administering clinical care. Combined with my Bachelor’s degree in Healthcare Leadership and a Master’s degree with a concentration in Healthcare Administration, I have studied and learned that all care industries have commonalities. One of the most prevalent in every industry is that care is stressful. Integrating mindfulness into our personal  care services  will grow a more focused and compassionate caregiver who helps each client meet their life goals and ensures that they strive to be the happiest and healthiest version of themselves."
