In 2005 A Better Solution founder, Carol Thayer spent many restless nights trying to solve her concern for care needs for her mother Pauline, a Camano local who developed Alzheimer’s. She found her solution in a friendship created with Morgen Springer, co-founder, and together they set out to bring reliable home care to Stanwood/Camano Island and the surrounding areas. Their solution: “Help people do whatever it takes to keep them in their homes safely and comfortably anytime, anywhere”.
Current owners Shawn and Christina Beach continue to provide the same reliable care to individuals of all walks of life who feel that their best option is quality care in the privacy of their own home. The couple is an ideal fit with Shawn having a background in business and management and Christina with 19+ years experience as a Licensed Occupational Therapist. Personally, Shawn and Christina have served as caregivers to Christina’s mother with Multiple Sclerosis for over 20 years and have experienced the challenges and rewards that come with managing a loved one’s care. They chose this business because it closely aligns with their values, love for people and desire to see people receive quality care.
