CenterPeace Home HealthCare & Companion Services, LLC, opened its doors for business in the fall of 2005, according to CenterPeace Home HealthCare & Companion Services, LLC owner and director Genel Webb, the company has provided the community and surrounding areas with top quality companion home care. “CenterPeace Home HealthCare & Companion Services is the only service of its kind located in the southwestern area of Wake county with their office being located in Fuquay-Varina” Webb said. “CenterPeace provides companion home care to the older adult population and others who need it, in Wake, Johnston, Harnett and Durham counties. Webb said the company provides a variety of services. “CenterPeace Home HealthCare & Companion Services provides services designed to make it easier for individuals to receive care in the most comfortable place of all—at home. These services include companionship, light housekeeping and laundry care (pertinent to client), medication reminders, and incidental transportation such as going to medical appointments or community events. CenterPeace also provides companion visiting to hospitals and rehabilitation centers when family members just can’t be there as they would like to be.” Webb said her company provides clients with extra assistance. “We’re like an extra set of hands or additional person around to do those things that you would get done yourself if you were in a position to do it yourself.

Just tell us what you want done. CPCC prides itself on providing affordable, compassionate and reliable care for all seasons of life.” According to Webb, her company provides quality care to clients in all stages of life. “While CPCC’s primary services cater to the needs of the older adult population, the company also provides respite and support to family caregivers, new mothers, to those physically and/or mentally challenged as well as to those recuperating from an illness or accident.” Webb is no stranger to the companion care business. According to Webb, she is a third generation caregiver provider business owner. Webb said some of her fondest childhood memories were when she spent time with her mother and grandmother in their family operated Family Care Homes. Webb said she spent may summers assisting her mother and grandmother and keeping company with the residents at her family’s business. She said it was these memories that made her want to go into the same business. “I grew up seeing the difference that genuine care makes in people’s lives, “Webb said. “I saw how it could bring back a smile and then laughter and in some instances, even restore the liveliness within an individual. As a result of watching my grandmother and mother extend and demonstrate the gift of compassion for their fellow man, I have become a very similar person.” “Webb, a graduate of the University of North Carolina of Chapel Hill, who has worked 20 years in the telecommunications

industry, said she began the business so that she could make a difference and said she has a great passion for providing care and assistance for people who are unable to take care of themselves. “Through CenterPeace Home HealthCare & Companion Services, I believe I am doing the thing that is most natural for me to do, and I am so grateful for the opportunity to own a business that enables me to help people of all ages, from all walks of life and in all seasons of life. For my husband and me, CenterPeace Home HealthCare & Companion Services (CPCC) is more than just a business, it is a labor of the heart and spirit,” Webb said. “To be able to provide this service and meet the needs in a professional manner with genuiness of heart is truly fulfilling, “Webb said. Webb said the goal of her business is to consistently hire those who embrace the same sentiments that she does about her clients. According to Webb, all CenterPeace employees are thoroughly screened, insured and bonded. Webb’s love for others is also seen in her activities outside of her business. In addition to managing CPCC, Webb is a wife, mother to two sons, active within her community and church; and a volunteer for Meals on Wheels of Wake County.
