Being a Registered Nurse with 25 years of experience in home health and elder care did not prepare me for the tough psychological impact of first, caring for a parent in Hospice care , then caring for the other aging parent who had just lost a spouse and was living alone. We invited my Mom to either move in with my brother or me in order to assist her more. She politely refused saying, “ I’m older  and wiser, and have decided to live in my own home and hire in help when I need it.”  This intermittent type of care would provide my Mom her necessary respite periods of privacy while maintaining a secure environment to maintain her current level of health.
About Owls
Owner Cheryl Bass, BSN, RN and her mother.

I found this experience with my own Mom and Dad was also the frequent experience of many people in my own acquaintance.  Having owned and managed a Home Health Agency, I realized I could offer assistance in these situations that would allow individuals, who chose to remain in their own homes, the option of periodic assistance that would maintain their safety at home and prevent admission to a facility. Health research has shown that admission or readmission to a hospital or nursing home facility is one of the major causes of increased frailty and infection in older adults. With Mom’s encouragement, we have named our company Older Wiser Life Services, LLC or The OWLS.

With a combined 32 years of experience in health care and home care delivery, we are confident we can help you with your personal care or housekeeping needs. My Mom has hopes that others in circumstances similar to hers will consider utilizing this visit approach to help them also stay in their own homes  in a safe and healthy manner.




"Since my mom no longer cooks, it was very important for her to have nutritious meals every day. Because I work and live 45 minutes away from her, we rely upon the OWLS to maintain her good health and strength with good home-cooked meals, Monday through Friday. Mom is pleased and is no longer losing weight."
