History of Sandin
In 1997, Mrs. Irene Sandin approached her granddaughter regarding some concerns that she and several of her friends had regarding healthcare. Earlier that afternoon, they were discussing home health services and had all agreed that home health care would be a great option in the event any of them suffered an illness or injury. They liked the idea of staying in their homes as opposed to extended hospital stays or nursing facilities. They particularly liked the fact that home health services were covered by medical insurances such as Medicare and Medicaid. They were concerned that East McKeesport and the surrounding area did not have a Home Health Care agency in their community. She felt that a local agency would be more available, accessible and provide more personalized services and that she and her friends would feel more comfortable and secure with a local provider.
Who could say no?
