Success Stories

James Brown & John D.

September 22, 2014

A-1 Home Care Agency has the distinct pleasure of having Jim Brown care for our client, John D in Harbor City. For the last year, Jim has been Mr. D’s elder caregiver and helps him with bathing, dressing and provides companionship. Jim and Mr. D spend a lot of time outdoors shopping, going to nearby parks, gardening, walks around the neighborhood and getting lunch from a nearby In-‘N-Out once a week. In-‘N-Out burgers and chocolate shakes are a favorite of Mr. D’s and the family encourages Jim to indulge him, within reason. Jim is careful that Mr. D has enough physical exercise that their special lunch treat does him no harm and makes him very happy.

James Brown began his caregiving career by taking care of his elderly parents after his dad had a stroke. He was a full time family caregiver while maintaining a regular job and realized he enjoyed helping people a lot more than he did working in an office environment. Jim enjoys the flexibility being a 24 hour caregiver in Los Angeles gives him and that A-1 Home Care is a great company to work with. He says, “I love being an in home caregiver for the elderly and knowing I make a difference. There’s no doubt that what I do, really matters.”

Jim made the transition to full time caregiver about 7 years ago while working for a non-profit organization that introduced him to a Father / Son who needed 24 hour homecare services. The elder Mr. D needed help due to his age while his son had late stage ALS, also known as Lou Gehrig’s disease, and was bedridden and used a G-Tube. Michael was instrumental in forming Jim Brown into the exceptional live in caregiver that he is today. Jim says, “Michael always had the best disposition and outlook, even with the painful and fearful things he was undergoing due to his terminal illness, he was still able to find the joy and pleasure in life and people.” Jim uses the memory of his client Michael whenever he feels stressed. If Michael could remain happy, pleasant and keep his sense of humor, how can Jim do any less when life gets a little rough?

Jim Brown is a warmhearted, compassionate senior caregiver and A-1 Home Care is grateful for all his hard work and dedication.
