A trusted resource in a complex system
We know finding quality in-home care is deeply personal. It involves loved ones who may be struggling with feelings of vulnerability and a loss of pride. We also know how complicated navigating the system can be. We understand because we’ve walked in your shoes and know what a difference quality care can make.
Founded by people who’ve lived it
Jay Vachal and Melody Vachal have special insight into caregiving. When their son, Isaac, developed disabilities that required in-home care, they realized how difficult it was finding and keeping consistent, high-quality care. Determined to provide a better option for their son and others, Jay founded Arise Cares in 2000.
In 2016, Melody found herself on the other side of the care model when a car accident left her temporarily paralyzed and with a host of medical issues. Melody eventually regained her independence, but the experience gave her a new perspective on the challenges of caregiving.
Now, as Director of Aging Services, Melody draws on her unique insight to provide the best services and support for our clients and their caregivers.
