About Daughters Love
Meet the Daughters & Son-in-Law

    Hi, Thanks for reading about us! Our story started as soon as we could walk...you see our Mother has always been a kind, compassionate & entertaining caregiver! 

    I remember caring for our 88 years young neighbor that had no one! At the age of 3 or 4 I remember bringing him his tray of food, pills & visiting with him...even though there was a smell of a spitune in the air, I knew what it meant for him to have someone to count on and talk too! :)
    Carla and I were also blessed to have a Mother who was the Executive Director of the Housing Apartments for the elderly. This meant we always had a place to go to give and recieve lot's of LOVE! Even though the residents had each other, they knew they had us too! We would go there after school and do puzzles, visit, and likely carry some bags to someones room too ;)
 All of this at an early age led to us both eventually being CNA's and we have worked in every type of aging facility. At 26 I decided I thought my path would be Adult Day Programs and quickly aligned myself with Sally Hebson of Sojourn Adult Day in Spring Park, MN. I helped start and facilitate Sojourn Suites and than ended up moving on to new paths for a while.

   Years later here we are caring for our wonderful parents and not even working in the field we love so much!  After many years of the basic needs for them we wondered how do others do this who are not self employed like us? That is when we started thinking about providing all of these different services that we were providing and realizing the dream we have had in our hearts most of our lives!

And so began, A Daughter's Love, a host of services provided with all the Love a Daughter would give and so much more!
