In addition to providing free assistance with temporary or permanent living arrangements, Steve Buttice, our founder, and Vicki Reliford, our regional director of client services and marketing, strive to reduce or alleviate stress for all involved.

LBYD is an excellent resource for the "sandwich generation" as well. This group is comprised by those between the ages of 45 and 60 who tend to the needs of both children and their own parents. Sometimes the situation is compounded by physical distance between the sandwich generation and their parents.

Steve and Vicki recognize the anxiety that often accompanies placing a loved one in a new and unknown living situation. Their expertise and years of experience enable them to ease clients' fears by reducing the many accompanying stressors. Living By Your Design eliminates the need to wade through entrance qualifications, financial assistance and other issues related to transitioning into home health care, a health care facility or senior living development. Living By Your Design serves an eight-county area, with plans for major expansion.
