Our Inaugural Partner



For 25 years, WhisperGLIDE swings have provided multifaceted benefits to both clients and their support groups. The therapeutic movement provides emotional therapy, thus reducing anxiety and aggression; while also promoting physical activity. The shared activity acts as a socialization catalyst for the client to interact with others, helping to overcome loneliness and boredom.

Having recently purchased WhisperGLIDE Swing Company and being new to the eldercare industry, my wife and I were looking for an organization within the industry that we could align with, which would provide a mutually rewarding partnership. In addition, I was also looking for senior leadership that could and would act as a mentor/educator on the eldercare industry and who truly believed in the attributes of our product. Fortunately, my search ended very quickly after Penny and I had shared our thoughts and visions on how our respective organizations could possibly partner. While our partnership is young, I have been truly impressed with their genuine passion and commitment in aligning the mission of our respective companies’ to positively impact eldercare. Without a doubt, their outside the box thinking and action oriented mentality results in “walking the talk” and producing the desired mutual benefits. So far, it is the best decision I have made and has far exceeded my expectations in all respects.
