Panhandle Assistant Care: Committed to In-Home Assisted Care Excellence


Senior Care GroceriesPanhandle Assistant Care (PAC) is a team of dedicated healthcare professionals committed to in-home assisted care excellence. And with over 20 years of experience in the field, PAC has mastered the art of creating independence with peace of mind. “With every client interaction, that is our goal; to bring peace of mind to both the client and their families,” says owner and founder, Cheri Allen. “Above all, we promote and support an independent lifestyle for our client, empowering and assisting him or her to live their best life, while in the safety and comfort of their home.”

Cheri was born and raised in Minnesota and adopted into a large, and God-loving family. At the age of 5, Cheri’s love and passion for helping others began when the family moved into an elderly building that her family would manage.

“In a sense, I grew up with 70 sets of grandparents,” She said. I fell in love with caring for and assisting others. It gave me a sense of purpose and pride; to bring peace, joy and comfort to others.”

After graduation, Cheri pursued her passion and enrolled in the Lakeland Medical Academy in Minneapolis. She has spent the last 20 years caring for others. Four years ago, after much prodding from friends, Cheri decided to open her own business in Minnesota. Now, she has relocated to Florida and chosen the Panhandle to fully invest herself, her passion for others, and share her experiences to better the lives of those on the Emerald Coast.

“Our Mission is to provide compassionate, personalized in-home care for clients of all ages, ensuring their comfort, safety, and dignity,” Cheri says. “We are dedicated to enhancing the quality of life for our clients by offering supportive, independent care right at their doorstep. We have a team of skilled assistants committed to delivering exceptional service with warmth, respect, and professionalism, fostering a sense of independence and well-being for every individual we serve.”
