How It All Started

In 2004 Barbara Trimble, a nurse with extensive experience in eldercare, witnessed industry offerings falling far short of the needs of our aging population. She began to define and implement a new paradigm for serving this remarkable generation—one built on the premise that preventing decline is as critical as reclaiming and maintaining health.

Barbara formed Extended Family to help older adults and their families preserve a high quality of life. We do this through a comprehensive menu of highly customized programs and services that support our members without compromising individual needs and preferences.

A hallmark of our organization is the personalized companionship and sincere level of care that you would only expect from your own extended family. We take particular pride in personalizing our services to meet unique needs and to match our members with staff who can best accommodate their preferences and personalities.

We believe our success is measured by how we feel at the end of the day, as well as by more traditional business measures. Our mission—and this opportunity—are at the same time personally and professionally rewarding. Inevitably, members of our Extended Family team do well by doing good.
