Our Mission is to help seniors live confidently and age gracefully in their own homes for as long as possible. We choose to make a positive difference in the lives of mature adults and their families who love them. The Help & Care, LLC team will perform its collective duties with confidence, concern, commitment, cheerfulness and care. We will treat every contact as a friend, every client as family and perform every task with honor.
Help & Care, LLC is a family-owned home care organization dedicated to helping you through a difficult time for your family – the realization that your loved one is struggling with the natural aging process and may require more help to stay in the home.
Who We Serve – Adults and Seniors:
- choosing to remain in their homes, rather than opting for institutional care
- needing assistance due to chronic disabilities
- dealing with issues related to memory loss

Vassilina Breitbach – Founder, Managing Director
I am Vassilina Breitbach. As the Founder of Help & Care, LLC, I truly care about the elderly and I understand the role of family caregivers.
My love and respect for seniors began when I was 4 years old. We moved from Germany to Kazakhstan, where my grandmother lived. My parents worked a lot and were away from home very often. I spent much time with my grandma. We had a strong relationship. She has never been just my grandmother, but my friend, my guardian, my inspiration. She lived to be 85. She became ill, but stayed at home until she passed away surrounded by her family.
I began to think about helping seniors after my grandma’s death. Caring for someone you love is one of the best, but also one of the challenging phases in life. Although I never regretted what it took to care for her and keep her in her home, I do regret how it robbed us of quality time with her while she was alive. Our life is so busy – parents, spouses and children, full-time jobs, and other responsibilities – that sometimes we lose sight of what really matters. This is, spending time with our loved ones and letting them spend time with us.
I founded Help & Care, LLC for two reasons. One is to provide respite to family caregivers enabling them to realize actual quality time with their loved ones. The other is to assist the elderly with staying independent and enjoying that independence, for as long as possible. And to do so with spirit and pride which is so often lost when health and mobility begin to fade, and one must depend on others to care for them.
If you are a senior or a family caregiver, you can count on me and my staff to provide you with the best service and to be knowledgeable about the challenges that you face each day. We are here to help. That is what we are all about.
