For Mia Kebea, Executive Vice President of Seniors in Place (SIP), her family’s drive to start their home care company began way back in 2001, when a pair of personal situations provided the impetus to change the way in-home senior healthcare is provided.
It all started when Kebea’s mother Rae was diagnosed with a terminal illness.
“My mom was a 43-year-old woman, and one day she went to the doctor, and she was told that she has a terrible heart issue. They gave her six months to live,” Kebea said. “It was a real shocker to us as a family, and she decided that she was going to fight for her life, and she went for it, and my mom ended up living for seven years.”
