We strive to deliver a unique personal care experience that includes laughter, attentiveness, and most importantly, client/family specific care. We believe in providing holistic care along with sharing a joyful journey. Our services include senior care, childcare and any age in between (pets included).

Handyman services include: minor cosmetic repairs, plumbing, maintenance, and ADA equipment installation. We also provide monthly, weekly, or bi-weekly home checks and will wrap outdoor faucets upon request. We provide home assessments to determine your home care needs.

Our Story

Happy Heart’s humble beginnings occurred in 2009 while Terri was in the hospital setting educating nursing students. She witnessed many patients who required additional care before, during, and after a hospital stay. Terri found it discouraging that many patients returned home with little to no support. Consequently, the idea was born…create a way to provide quality home care services to not only prevent future hospital admissions, but help seniors age in place and enjoy staying in their homes for as long as possible. Another vital aspect of personal care is to provide assistance to families whose loved ones are currently hospitalized and need more information and support during this challenging time.

It took 10 years to finally realize her dream of opening Happy Heart Home Care in Blairsville and serve the mountain communities. Terri considers the old saying as “Better late than Never” as extremely accurate in this case!
