In 1996 COMPASS, LLC was formed in an effort to provide for the unmet needs of elderly and disabled individuals including mental illness . In September of 2009, Compass ShiningCare became a non-profit agency in order to offer more free and affordable services, while still providing the highest quality care and service to meet the growing needs of our community.
Joanne H. McCarley is the Founder and Executive Director of Compass ShiningCare. She is a Certified Geriatric Care Manager and has a degree in Social Work, as well as 20 years of experience working with seniors and disabled adults in both medical and community settings. As Executive Director, Joanne has utilized her education and experience to develop programs offering necessary resources and services to disabled adults and elders, as well as the families and professionals who are responsible for them. In addition to program development and directing, she remains highly involved as our Lead Care Manager. Joanne views her work as more than a career and business. Having elderly loved ones herself, she understands the level of need for our kind of services, and is passionate and dedicated to creating and providing superior, innovative, affordable services for families.

Compass ShiningCare is special in that we are not a corporate franchise business, but rather a team of dedicated professionals who all have the vision and mission as first priority. Our caring team of professionals and volunteers are dedicated to providing the highest quality of services that will be accessible to our community.
