Gracie, with undaunted courage, lives everyday where only our deepest fears takes us—and that is, a world of unrelenting pain.  To spend time with her, though, is to feel a lot of that courage infuse into your own heart.  You can’t help but sense the divine strength which is her daily comfort and consolation.

Gracie’s journey to a healthier life

As in the case with Gracie, she needed a team of committed individuals to help her in this journey. Her trauma was too extensive to manage this alone. None of us need to try this by ourselves. That’s why we are committed to helping you achieve a healthier life. Others did it for us, we did it for Gracie, and we’re prepared to assist you as well.

Legal Shield

As a caregiver, think about all the legal documents you need.  Power of attorney, a will, Living Wills, and so many more. Then think about such things as disputes about medical bills.

What if instead of shelling out hefty fees for a few days of legal help, you paid a monthly membership and got a law firm for life? Well, we’re taking legal representation and making some revisions—in the form of accessible, affordable, full-service coverage. Finally, you can live life knowing you have a lawyer in your back pocket who, at the same time, isn’t emptying it.

It’s called Legal shield …and it’s practical, affordable, and a MUST for family caregivers.
