A new business has opened in Elkins striving to provide compassionate quality care to the elderly or disabled, as an alternative to nursing home placement. Caring Solutions, located at 320 Randolph Ave., was opened by Amie and Tim Haddix to fill a need for these services.

"Caring Solutions offers homemakers assistance with activities of daily living," said Amie Haddix. "Our staff provides services such as assistance with bathing, dressing, grooming, personal hygiene, taking the member to shop, taking the member to the doctor, running errands, visiting family members, light housework and meal preparation."

Amie Haddix said Caring Solutions is currently accepting members and applications for homemakers.
