Keith Staples joins the Home Care Assistance team in Bethesda as a Home Care Liaison (HCL) serving the Washington DC area. He was born in DC and currently lives in Alexandria VA. After many successful years working as a marketing/advertising professional, Keith became the full-time caregiver for his mother and stepfather. Both of whom were suffering from dementia and other physical issues. He was their sole caregiver for 4 years performing all the day to day tasks needed to keep them healthy and safe in their home. When their needs became more than he could handle, a home health care company was brought in...HCA of Bethesda! After gaining respect and admiration for all that CNA's do every day, Keith took his marketing experience to the health care industry working as a Community Liaison for a provider in Northern Virginia. When the opportunity arose in the Bethesda office for a HCL, he could not resist the chance to come to the company and office that took such loving care of his parents!
