As hospital Social Workers for many years, Dianne C. McGraw and Betty B. Tedesco saw first-hand the fragmentation of health services and gaps in needed community resources, resulting in frustration for families and many unmet needs felt by their loved ones. Together they established Care Management Solutions in 1991 with a vision of quality services and dignified care for elderly persons and their families in the New Orleans area. With the addition of in home sitter companion services, our name was changed to Home Care Solutions in 2001. Betty Tedesco retired in 2016.
