Meet Sue Henderson
As you will come to know, our owner Sue Henderson's mantra is, “Drink more water!” When we meet a new client, proper hydration is the first thing that we address. Many adults (and especially seniors) are chronically dehydrated and don't realize it. Being properly hydrated can drastically improve health.
“Our balanced approach focuses on the whole person, their nutritional, physical and emotional needs. We realize that aging adults are rich in experience and abilities no matter what age, and they have a lot to offer us.”
~ Sue Henderson, owner and former nurse

Connecting Hearts is a godsend! When my mother became too frail to live by herself we moved her in with us. The dependable and compassionate caregivers provided excellent care and companionship. We were able to go to work without worrying because she was in good hands with Connecting Hearts.
