Hi I’m Penny Bandy.  I’m the owner of East Tennessee Personal Care service.  It is very important to me to have good trained quality caregivers to come into your home and take care of your loved ones.  

I still love what I do and when I go make a difference in somebody’s life, whether it’s in a nursing home, assisted living, private home, or hospital, it brings me joy just to hear those families say “you were there when we needed you.”
