Flexible - We try to honor last minute needs and requests, and only ask for a 24-hour notice to re-schedule / cancel shifts or cancel services.
Concierge Services - We offer concierge services to help coordinate and create a solution for you, regardless of whether we offer what you need.
EFS CAREShare - We have created a Foundational Resource Network to help with solving problems and finding solutions. Please call us or see the CAREShare page for more information about this program.

Online Family Portal - We provide a website for easy communications and sharing between EFS, Family and Client (and any other client approved persons).
Quality Assurance - Complimentary routine check-in visits to ensure consistent quality services are being provided.
Independently Owned - We are NOT a franchise with rigid protocols that limit our ability to customize care. We have been locally owned since 2004 with many references to support our claims of quality service.
Minimum Coverage - We have a 3-hour minimum, however; we have flexibility and, in most cases, can create a solution, whatever your needs are.
Licensed, Bonded and Insured - We are licensed and guided by the State of Tennessee. We are also insured and bonded, unlike many independent care givers.
OUR MISSION Our mission is to offer a helping hand and a caring touch through a variety of quality services tailored to your family’s current and unique situation and needs. We do this by LISTENING first and creating care plans based on YOU, not the "average" client. The goal is for you to "live life on your terms".
