Our Story

Tony and Shana Jeter founded Tender Mercies after they experienced, first hand, the challenges associated with caring for his aged parents. It was those experiences that sparked a desire to help families stretched thin by the demands of caring for a loved one.


In visiting with other families, they learned that no two families’ needs are the same; one may need respite or part-time care, while another may need full time care. That’s why Tender Mercies carefully considers each specific situation to determine the best course of action. Tender Mercies caregivers provide peace of mind to concerned family members that need a helping hand in caring for their loved one. Tony will work with families to develop individualized plans that are tailored to meet specific budget and care requirements. We can also supplement the care that home health or hospice agencies provide.


Our experienced caregivers can help your loved ones:

  • Maintain their independence

  • Keep their daily routines

  • Live in familiar surroundings

  • Avoid the emotional trauma of leaving their home

  • Cope with their dementia or illness
