We're in this business because we deeply care about people. Our joy is to solve and serve YOUR need.
We are locally owned and operated, combining the experience of owners Diantha Cavin and Lynn Vanasse with the resources of a nation-wide home care company that has been providing companionship, caregiving and homemaking services since 1996. The NW Metro office serves clients in Hennepin, Wright and Carver counties.
We employ passionate and dedicated caregivers who are carefully selected through a rigorous process which includes an industry-specific psychological profile, behaviorally based interviewing, and thorough reference and background checks. We provide training and continuing education, including an emphasis on caring for those with various forms of dementia.
We carefully match our caregivers with our clients to create a strong bond and mutually rewarding experience for both. We strive to be not only the provider of choice, but the employer of choice as well.
Lynn Vanasse, Owner
When my youngest child headed off to college, I looked in the mirror and asked "What now?"
I had put my previous management career on hold, choosing only positions that allowed me to focus on my 4 children as they grew. I had completed my Masters degree in Business/HR in anticipation of reentering the workforce full-time. When I looked in the mirror that day, I knew it was time to follow my heart's desire to serve others in a meaningful way.
I remembered asking myself the same question "What now?" when my mother fell ill to cancer. Raising my children 350 miles away limited my ability to effectively care for her. I remember the anguish and frustration of not being able to honor her strong desire to stay home as the illness progressed.
The memory of this heart struggle has inspired me to want to help those who are trying to meet the increasing needs of ill or aging loved ones while continuing to manage their own busy lives.
Being an owner of Touching Hearts at Home has given me the chance to do for others what I was unable to do for my own mother. It has also given me the opportunity to do what I enjoy most: create meaningful connections that inspire hope. I am energized by helping people "connect the dots" as they navigate the maze of options related to home care.
I now honor my mom by connecting others with practical solutions that support the desire to "age in place." The care our company offers puts many of the puzzle pieces in place by providing companionship, transportation, housekeeping, memory care and more. "Touching Hearts" can make life easier, fuller, healthier and even more fun.
I easily see "that special something" in each person and I love to put a smile on their face. Now when I look in the mirror, I see a smile on my own face too because I know I'm touching hearts.
Help me connect more dots for others by telling your friends and families about Touching Hearts at Home!

After my Mom's stroke and my Dad's motorcycle accident, I was trying to coordinate care for my parents from 650 miles away. I experienced first-hand the difficulty of finding the right people with the right heart to provide the right services for my loved ones.
That's when I discovered the care services of Touching Hearts at Home. I immediately connected with the value of finding high-quality care that also touches the "heart" needs of individuals and families.
My business partner, Lynn, and I have always placed a strong emphasis on serving others. We had been searching for a business opportunity that would broaden our ability to provide meaningful services to our communities and enrich the lives of others. Touching Hearts at Home was a perfect fit.
Owning and running another business was a natural next step. The focus of my career has been in the areas of management, business administration, graphic design, and entrepreneurship. I am an energetic problem-solver with a history of developing creative tools and innovative solutions for maximizing value and efficiency.
My passion for actively responding to the needs of others with meaningful solutions and resources finds fulfillment in my work for Touching Hearts at Home. I love meeting complex challenges with creative ideas. We work with families, faith community leaders, service coordinators, caregivers and others involved in a person's care as we develop and tailor an effective plan to meet the needs of the whole person - mind, body and spirit. We find caregivers with a "heart" for serving well, with care and compassion.
Personally and professionally, Lynn and I have both witnessed first-hand the incredible benefit that caregiving and companionship can provide to individuals and their families who are facing the progressive challenges that come with aging, illness or disability.
If you or a loved one could benefit from companionship or non-medical care, let us lend a hand and a heart to make life easier!
