Loving Kindness Care Solutions (LKCS) is devoted to assisting caregivers/ families with  personalized care plans for their loved one’s long term care needs. Our mission is to provide guidance and practical solutions that align with the caregiver’s current needs to care for loved ones with long term chronic illnesses or special needs. 

I know firsthand the struggles of caring for a loved one with chronic disabling illnesses.  From 2007 to 2021, I helped care for my mother, Juana, who had Alzheimer’s disease, heart disease and diabetes.  Currently I am taking care of my father, Angel, who was diagnosed with Parkinson’s Disease and had bladder cancer in 2010.  Through my personal experience, I know navigating the healthcare system to get the most appropriate care for loved ones is overwhelming, emotional, and confusing.  I have learned many lessons and experienced many growing pains in getting the long-term services for my parents.  Through vigorous and diligent research and phone calls, I was able to get the services I needed to care for my mother at home.  I am currently doing the same thing for my father but his needs are different at this time. Long term care is not a one-size-fits-all industry.

Through these recent years, I have encountered many friends and extended families going through similar struggles as I went through.  I have spent countless hours speaking to them and providing advice and guidance to get them in the right direction in caring for their loved ones. 

Seeing that there is a need to help others with the care for their loved ones, I have decided to create a consulting business independent from any insurance company, community, facility, agency, and government office.  Thereby, allowing my clients to feel free from any restriction or limitation to provide the best care for their loved ones.
