Hal • cy • on:
A period of time that is idyllically happy and peaceful.
We are a group of highly educated and trained medical, business and eldercare professionals, with busy, stressful lives who came together because we had been caregivers for our loved ones. We saw a need for something better in Austin. We needed quality people to help us, and we couldn’t find them through any agency, we had to go hand-pick them ourselves. Whether it’s shopping or errand-running for an executive, cooking for or bathing a loved one, home management, or providing medical advocates for any illness, we assure you we bring a level of service you have never experienced before.
Halcyon Home was created to bring the most exceptional care to your home and your loved ones. Halcyon was the Greek god who calmed the seas in order to allow the mystical beautiful kingfisher bird to lay its eggs, and that time of year was referred to as the halcyon time of year. We hope to create a peaceful, idyllic setting for you even in the hardest or most stressful of times, in order to allow you to enjoy your life to its fullest.
