What You'll Get
A Chat with Grandma Comes Calling
What services does your business offer and what makes your business stand out from the competition?
Why hire Grandma Comes Calling? If a loved one has a disability…, is with a caregiver or in a facility, [or would like] companionship or someone to listen and share stories. Additional services [include] grocery shopping, accompaniment to appointments, picking up prescriptions, and birthday celebrations.
What was the inspiration to start or run this business?
After retiring, I spent five years with Rite Aid delivering prescription medication to elderly [customers] and people with disabilities who could not pick it up themselves. I would talk with these people for sometimes a hour and learned that there is a true need for companionship.
What do you love most about your job?
I’d love to offer care and companionship to a very vulnerable group in our society right now: seniors. I love sharing stories, listening to stories, but more so, I understand the position they are in, and I would be honored to do what I can to help you and your loved ones.
What is the best reaction you’ve ever gotten from a customer?
“I know Pat Gest to be one of the most caring and dedicated persons that I have met. When she shared with me her concept of checking in on those in care facilities or homebound, I realized that she would be perfect for the job.” – Bob Hanna, Senior Pastor Salem First Christian Church
