WE ARE YOUR ADVOCATE.
Ashley and Kyle know what it's like to care for a full house. With six kids there is never a dull moment. Ashley has been in elderly care for over 15 years in and around St. George, Utah and is now fulfilling her dream as a provider of private home companionship care and affordable Long Term Care and Assisted Living for those who don't wish to go into a big noisy and at times lonely facility.
She dreamed of a place where her patients would not have to move from a independent living facility if they began to decline. Knowing the next facility would be skilled nursing and much more expensive. With all the extra and sometimes hidden costs associated with these places she was constantly helping families find the next place. This is when she decided to open Southern Comfort Care Cottages in St George, Utah. She fixed her own problem with a fitting solution, "come here for comfort and care, you'll never have to move again". Ashley is able to coordinate with any home health or hospice company to provide what medical attention is needed. This allows all family to rest easy that their loved one is care for and is comforted 24/7.
