About Us

At Gauthier Family Home Care, when we say our service is from the heart, we mean it. Why? Because we understand the struggle first hand. We’ve been there, too.

Several years ago Marion’s mom, Muffy, was diagnosed with metastatic breast cancer.  The initial pain levels rendered her permanently bedridden.

It shook our family, but Marion took the reins. With no formal training, she became the primary caregiver; attending doctor’s visits, monitoring medications, managing meals, bathing, bed changing, and doing laundry.  Marion slept night after night at her parents’ home to ensure Muffy’s continuous comfort.

After several months, Marion realized she and her dad Walt couldn’t do it all. She enlisted the expertise of local home health agencies.

Instantly, both she and our family recognized the transformative affect the caregivers had on the situation. Though Marion remained a staple at Muffy’s side, she felt relief with the aid of a trusted hand. And most importantly, Muffy remained in comfort and at ease.

Muffy eventually lost her battle with cancer.  It was 18 months of emotional peaks and valleys. Caring for Muffy was one of the most challenging and rewarding times our family has experienced together, and we cherish her memory every day.  In celebration of her spirit, we decided to continue this important work by opening Gauthier Family Home Care.  We want to make a difference in people’s lives at a time when they need it most.  Our service, backed by both experience and compassion, will fulfill that goal.

We’re here for you. Welcome to the family.
