In Loving Memory 
Egons Plavnieks

Egons chose to open a home care agency along with his wife Anda as a result of personal experience, when helping their own family with home care services.  They saw the challenges faced by families in supporting their loved ones, as they become less and less able to live fully independently.  His passion for helping others and his kindness and thoughtfulness toward providing the highest standards for care live on today.  Egons will always be remembered for his compassion and commitment to taking care of others and in the lives of the many people touched by his loving kindness.
