Business Description: Hello.  Thank you for stopping by and please follow also on Facebook @ facebook.com/1stplan My name is Mark, and I have worked in the medical field for over 21 years. For the last 11 years, I have helped people live their lives in their homes their way. I offer the option of living at home instead of in assisted living facilities or nursing homes. I help them travel to major family events such as a grandchild's graduation, meeting newborn great grandchildren, or to see old friends they haven't seen in years. I enable them to attend concerts, visit museums, see a movie, or play bridge. I help people live their day-to-day lives, whether it be next door or around the world. I assist them in realizing that the only one stopping them from doing anything is themselves, by not letting age or ailments control their lives. I encourage and assist all ages to live to the best of their abilities. Travel companion skilled in both local and international transportation and accommodation arrangements.
