Our Caregivers.

They are the heart and soul of Elder Bridge. They are dedicated to assisting you and your family member. They are hard working individuals that come from all corners of the world to assist you in your needs. Most of our caregivers have been with Elder Bridge for over five years and some have been with us since we started in 2003. Without them, we would not be where we are today.
