Covenant In-Home Care Expands Scope of Services in Charlotte, NC
Covenant In-Home Care, Charlotte’s local companion care business, is excited to announce its expansion of services in Mecklenburg and surrounding counties.
Charlotte, NC – January 10, 2010 -- After almost two years of serving families in and around Charlotte with basic companion services, adding hands-on personal care was a natural progression. In addition to their new license for In-Home Aide services, Covenant In-Home Care, a Christian based company, also offers daily devotions designed to cater to client’s spiritual needs.
As of December 2, 2010, Covenant In-Home Care obtained its License for In-Home Aide services by the Division of Health Service Regulation. Owners, Andrew Martin and Ashley Alden, wanted to better serve clients’ growing needs.  Among those new services available are bathing assistance, lifting, monitoring vital signs, and other personal care services. 
Christians themselves, Martin and Alden wanted to incorporate a positive spiritual component to the business by adding daily devotion as an option included in their services. “The mental and spiritual state of the elderly is so important. These devotions can be an integral step toward a complete and balanced life,” said Martin.

Award Winning December!

  December was a wonderful month for us at Covenant In-Home Care. We stayed
very busy and were excited about the holidays. Thanks to our incredible caregivers
we were able to assist, and give a peace of mind to the families we work with, in a
"hustle and bustle" time of year.
  Andrew and I were very excited to get to enter a Christmas Tree Decorating Contest
at Shad's Landing in North Charlotte. It is a wonderful independent living community (kind
of like a big apartment community) for retired adults. We packed our car with Christmas
cheer and headed up there to decorate. Our tree looked a little bear to me until we put on
all the decor. Our theme was "Hollywood Holidays." We decorated the tree with little framed
pictures of famous people from old Hollywood. Dean Martin, Frank Sinatra, Mae West, and
a few others made a cameo on our tree to bring back memories for those who live at Shad's. We
wrote famous movie quotes on ribbon in puffy paint and wrapped the tree with that and white
feather boas. Red poinsettias and silver ornaments tied in the Christmas theme.

We received an email a week or so before Christmas from sweet Joanne announcing the top three winners from the contest! ................................

AND WE WON FIRST PLACE!!!!!!!!! :) all the residents voted on a favorite tree and we won! I was so excited. Andrew and I got to go have dinner with their residents and the other winners to claim our trophy.
I have never been more overjoyed!

Isn't she a beaut! :)

The year ended with a wonderful holiday, and we are very grateful for all our many blessings this year. Even Griffin was thankful for the gift of snow on Christmas day.
