  • Akin Care Senior Services Agency provided excellent care for my dad. On the first phone call, Ann was very attentive to my dad’s specific needs for a live-in caregiver and wanted to identify the perfect caregiver before accepting the job. I interviewed several other agencies and concluded they were going to be revolving door of caregivers. Once I selected Ann, she was very helpful in navigating what I needed to do and identified resources for me to access. What you get with Akin is honestly, Ann, the owner of the company. I live in Georgia and my dad in Princeton – so I really needed a local person I could count on and trust. Ann was always available by phone or text and was present with my dad as needed – without having to be asked. She identified the perfect caregiver matched to my dad’s physical and personality needs and they immediately hit it off. She treated my dad as if it were her own father. Thank you Ann – the peace of mind you gave me was precious.
