Linda Bailey was born and raised in Indianapolis.  She was the sixth of nine children.  She left Indianapolis to go to school in Los Angeles.  She ultimately returned to Indianapolis, where she began working at an assisted living community.  About the same time, she had the privilege of caring for her aging parents.  After their passing, Linda and her husband moved to Atlanta, where she continued her work with the elderly.

Early on, Linda met Jo Ellen Knowles.  Jo Ellen became interested in senior care after her mother lost a battle with colon cancer.  Jo Ellen attended Adelphi University, and went on to earn a graduate degree from Boston University.  Though she has worked in a variety of capacities, including news anchor for a CNN affiliate, her heart is in serving the elderly and their families.

About a year ago, Linda asked Jo Ellen to join her as she started Atlanta Healthcare Referral.  Atlanta Healthcare Referral’s mission is to search out the best of the best in home care and senior living communities to refer to their clients and families.  They pride themselves on doing the “feet on the ground” research that larger companies might not be committed to doing.  To find out more, please visit their website at, or call them directly at 770-866-7729.

We want to thank Griswold Home Care for sponsoring today’s show.  Griswold Home Care has been a preferred provider of high quality, affordable in-home senior care in Atlanta for 20 years.
