Bob McCoy

Founder and Owner

My lifetime of experiences with persons needing home care teaches the value of emotional well being to health. Keeping is a critical part. No substitute exists for keeping up the spirits of persons with special needs due to short or long term physical or mental conditions. My father ran a clinical laboratory for special needs children when I began sixth grade. As a lawyer and in other settings, I worked daily with persons needing care and their families, medical providers, and caregivers were a part of my daily world. This section of Chitown’s website shares the lives of persons needing assistance to provide an understanding how trained home care personnel make those lives active and gratifying. The names and certain details are changed to protect their identities.
