Harrison Stebbins, Owner
Initially, I got involved in home care at a very young age and not as a profession, but for personal reasons. Like so many of the family members of our clients, I did not become a caregiver by choice; it was a path that was chosen for me because someone I cared about very much needed help. Over the past 30+ years, I have gotten to know all of the caregivers who have helped my family care for my brother and those who helped us care for my grandmother. The two most valuable lessons I learned through these experiences are that, first and foremost, an amazing caregiver has an incredibly positive impact on the quality of life of the person they are caring for. This was the reason I choose home care as my profession. Secondly, having support and access to trusted resources makes a world of difference to individuals who need assistance with activities of daily living and to families struggling with the emotional and physical demands of caring for a loved one who needs help caring for him/herself. I am passionate about ensuring all of our clients find that special caregiver who can have a positive impact on their quality of life and helping families get the support and resources they need to navigate the challenges of caring for a loved one. When I am not working, I enjoy playing golf or fishing because I love being outdoors. Spending time with my family, however, is what brings the most joy to my life.
Patricia Nihill, Director of Operations
I grew up visiting my grandparents in a nursing home and saw how the facility was their community, the staff was their family. I observed how each member of the staff cared for my grandparents as their own and knew that I wanted to give back in the same way. After graduating from college, I worked as a licensed social worker in skilled nursing facilities, created a nationally recognized Alzheimer’s program for an assisted living company and joined the home care industry to assist those in the community with their care needs.
I became a licensed social worker in 2005 and have dedicated myself to ensuring that every individual’s voice is heard and understood with dignity and compassion. I work alongside your family to ensure your care needs are met and your wishes are granted.
I joined the Amazing Grace team in 2015 to work with others who share my values of providing compassionate and individualized care to those in our community.
Danielle Stewart, Director of Human Resources
Hello! My name is Danielle Stewart and I’ve been working for Amazing Grace since March of 2005. I worked in the field as a CNA and had a close relationship with one of our more difficult clients. She challenged me daily and I enjoyed the anticipation of what each new day would bring. When my time with her ended, I was asked to work in the office. I started out helping with filing and calling references for new applicants. I am now the Director Of Human resources. I handle the weekly schedules and supervise the hiring process of new caregivers. Amazing Grace values both clients and caregivers in a way most agencies don’t and it sets us apart. Everyone connected to Amazing Grace is important and thought of daily. I am a married mother of two who can appreciate the family morals Amazing Grace carries toward our clients and caregivers.
Aggie Fergunson, Client Care Representative
My name is Aggie and I am a Client Care Representative for Amazing Grace Private Home Care. I currently live on the South Shore with my two daughters Mia and Aly, our two cats Annie and Toby, and our turtle Coco Crispy. I started off at a young age volunteering in the recreation department of a skilled care facility where my mother worked. I quickly realized the positive impact I made on the lives of the elderly, so I took the CNA Red Cross training course. After graduating I had the pleasure of working on a memory unit where I assisted patients who had Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s and other forms of Dementia. I also worked at a rehab and skilled care facility on the weekends where I learned valuable skills such as wound care, various transfer techniques, range of motion exercises, and end-of-life care through hospice. In 2006 I was hired at Amazing Grace where I had the opportunity to care for clients in the comfort of their own homes. Amazing Grace has opened my eyes to a whole new meaning of client care. I enjoyed the one-on-one time with each client and the special bond that is made between a caregiver and client. In 2014 I had the opportunity to work in the office working on scheduling. I not only began to know each of our wonderful caregivers, but I was able to get to know our wonderful clients and their families. In 2016 I was transitioned into a client care representative where I have the opportunity to work in the field with our caregivers and clients.
