Where we serve
With homebase in Charlotte, NC, our daily primary service area includes Charlotte-Mecklenburg and all surrounding counties in the Carolinas within reasonable driving distance.
Additionally we have worked with clients as far as California and Boston, and because every job is customized based on varying constraints, client preferences and financial support, we are able and willing to get creative with logistics when the situation warrants. Some situations only require remote management, communications and scheduling; but additionally Aging Optimist schedules overnights, drives great distances and/or air travels to assist clients and their families when warranted, feasible and financially responsible.
We have also spent years fostering relationships with a large elder care collaborative of vetted experts, and are able to tap into our geographically widespread industry network to the advantage of our clients and responsible parties.
