Keisha, a Certified Nursing Assistant, will serve as the President of their local agency which will be based in Woodstock, MD. She will run the day-day operations of the business and manage the recruiting and hiring of qualified caregivers. Dean, a Certified Senior Advisor, will own the business development responsibilities for the agency as well as serve as an Area Representative to help other aspiring entrepreneurs start, build and grow their own Assisting Hands agency in Maryland or Northern Virginia.
Taking personal responsibility for the services they provide in the community will be the core foundation of their business. The Assisting Hands Team will serve their clients with respect and dignity and assist them in maintaining their independence. We will help our clients focus on what they can do, not what they can’t, allowing our clients to achieve the best possible lifestyle.

They like to spend their free time coaching, managing teams and watching their boys play various sports, and providing support for the local school system. Please let us know how we can help you and your family.
