All About Us
We are Greg and Georgia Fitzhugh from Lancaster Texas, where our family has resided for five generations. Those generations have produced a history of small farms, general stores and other small business. Our web-store, Caregiver-Aid.com is family owned and operated by our company, Caregiver-Aid LLC, where we carry on the family tradition – “The Customer is Always Right”.
Why should you trust us?
Most important ,… we want to earn your trust. We have experienced being family caregivers ourselves. We cared for my mother as she fought and lost her battle with lung cancer, and again with my mother-in-law who lived to be a few months short of 90 years old. For thirteen years these experiences helped to give us first-hand knowledge of the trials and the blessings of family caregiving. We promise to do our best to supply you with information and tools that will help to make your work and life a little easier.
Georgia is a teacher-tutor, and mom with degrees in Rehabilitation Science and Special Education. Greg is a carpenter, project manager, and dad with an Executive Certificate in Home Modifications for safe, accessible homes.
