The owner/manager of Assisting Hands Home Care of Newport Beach, Judy Brady, is a long time resident of Orange County. Judy’s background and experience in Speech Pathology/Audiology has resulted in a “hands on” management style, enabling her to take a special interest in each individual client’s wants and needs. Utilizing a “team approach” to client care management, Judy is proud of the administrative and care giving staff that she has assembled.
Judy saw the need for well trained, quality caregivers when she was faced with the needs of her own ailing parents. Experiencing difficulty in finding a reputable agency that she could trust with the care of her own loved ones, she realized that her own personal criteria and requirements were more stringent than a typical home care agency could deliver. The result…Assisting Hands Home Care, providing fully vetted, experienced and well trained caregivers to serve a discriminating clientele. As Judy states, “I wanted to own an agency that would provide the best of caregivers…those whom I would welcome into my own home. And I am doing just that”.
