Caring for the elderly started during my young career and to this day I continue to have a passion to care for the elderly and disabled. My name is Cheryl Leach and I am the sole owner of Quality of Life Home Care, LLC. In 1980, at the age of 21, I was employed at Cora Veal Senior Center in Madisonville, Tennessee. My daily responsibilities were assisting the seniors with transportation, grocery shopping, meal deliveries, along with numerous other activities provided at the center. Since then, I have always had a passion to be involved with caring for elderly and disabled persons. This passion has led me in the direction of starting Quality of Life Home Care.
Quality in Service
We offer an exceptional team of experienced professionals who monitor the safety and quality of the business’ services. Employees participate in extensive safety training to ensure Quality of Life Home Care business practices meet or exceed all federal and state requirements.
Commitment to Ethical Business Practices
We conduct our business honestly and ethically, based on values of Integrity, Safety and Quality. We expect the same of all with whom we conduct business. Quality of Life Home Care competes vigorously for business, but some conduct in the name of competition is not consistent with the law or Quality of Life’s Home Care commitment to integrity. We will maintain the highest standards of behavior by being honest and ethical in our conduct.
Education Work Experience
Understanding the importance of a degree, I graduated with an Associate of Applied Science Degree in Business Management at Cleveland State Community College in Cleveland, Tennessee and a Bachelor of Science Degree in Business and Management at Bryan College in Dayton, Tennessee. My 20 years human resources experience has taught me how to select qualified applicants to match the needs of our clients.
Being a co-founder of Friendship Living Home in 1992, I also served on the board of directors and was elected Secretary from 1992 to 1996. Friendship Living Home was a non-profit residence for mentally ill and mentally retarded persons.
I served as President and was a member of Sweetwater Civitan from 2006 to 2009. I managed several projects that benefited elderly and disabled persons. Visiting local nursing homes and senior apartments, the organization provided projects assisting residences with Wii Bowling, Bingo, cookouts and other events.
Currently I’m Co-Director and on the Public Relations, Fundraising and Finance management teams for Area 22 Special Olympics. After Monroe County had not participated in Special Olympics events for 15 years, in 2005, I made the decision to start it once again. The first competition was the Spring Track & Field events in May, 2006. I continue to be involved with Special Olympics and am responsible for planning and organizing the Monroe County events.
I’m currently a member of the Loudon Monroe Human Resources Association where I served as Vice-President in 2006. I have also been involved with other local community organizations that include Sweetwater Optimist Club, Tennessee Valley Girls Softball Association, Sweetwater High School Track Booster Club and American Youth Soccer Organization where I served as an officer of the organizations and/or coached.
