In 2001, the Bios family was faced with a difficult situation. Linda Myers, our mother of the family owned and operated company, Bios, was suffering with cancer. The illness had progressed to the point that Linda needed significant help at home. This left Lori Hauge, and her sisters to support their mother at home in a loving and dignified way, while balancing the needs of their own families and running the family business, Bios. The girls wanted to make sure Linda could stay at home with her beloved dogs and have unlimited access to her ten grandchildren who brought her enormous joy. Over ten years of serving people in a loving, life-affirming way made us realize we needed to bring our services to Seniors and people struggling with illness.
In 2009, we expanded our services, under the leadership of Lori Hauge, to include private duty in-home services through A Better Life Homecare. We understand the key to continuing a rich life is having the support of compassionate and dedicated people to help out at home when the unexpected happens.
