Attentive Home Care in  Marion has purchased signage for the front of their building indicating "Heroes Work Here". 

Attentive wanted to make it known that we are actively in the community helping serve those that can't help themselves. Home care is critical in maintaining the well-being of all elders and  the disabled and allowing them to remain  in their homes and out of the nursing homes at this time and moving forward. 

As Home Care transitions further into 2020 and beyond, we believe more than ever, that home based Health Care will increase as a viable and important service for any community.
