My name is Julie Katz, I live in Akron, Ohio. I’m a former licensed nursing home administrator in the State of Ohio. I was the administrator of a 200 unit senior apartment in Cleveland. I am a blogger writing about issues for adult children of aging parents, which I am passionate about. My goal is to be considered as their extra daughter.
Most importantly, I am a loving daughter to my older parents, and I believe everyone deserves to be treated with kindness and respect. My parents live 500 miles away and I understand the anxiety of having aging parents so far away.

How can we help?
Here is a list of services we can provide you with:
We will accompany you on shopping trips but we won’t stop there. “Your Extra Daughter” will put your purchases in carts, the car and away at your residence.
We not only drive you to your medical appointment, we are there to be your advocate. If you wish, we will interact with your medical provider and help you understand any follow-up required. With your permission, we can pass that information along to your family members.
The Extra Daughter can provide daytime companionship for people with mild dementia or those who are just lonely. We help clients structure their days with meaningful activities. Respite care is also available for caregivers who need to get away for a few hours for their own appointments or just to relax. We strive to be like a friend.
If you encounter an emergency medical or other situation, we can be there any time of day or night to accompany you if your family cannot.
Minor Home Repair
Minor home repairs can be difficult or impossible for older adults to tackle. Our fully vetted staff will take care of minor repairs for clients over 65 years old.
Eldercare professionals will help you come up with solutions to your practical problems but we will also be there as a compassionate voice to discuss your challenges about being a caregiver. We can meet in person or virtually. The program is very flexible, and is billed on an hourly basis.
If you don’t see what you are looking for or are in need of special services, please reach out to us to see if we can help with a specific need.
