hypocrisy means “to criticize someone for a fault you also possess.” the phrase dates back to the early 1600s when most pots and kettles were fashioned from cast iron, a material that acquires streaks of black smoke when heated over a flame😆😅

Our Story

Aging Gracefully In-Home Care for seniors came into existence from a deep heartfelt love for senior citizens. Shannon Fothergill, current administrator of Aging Gracefully, began working with seniors in 1998 when she joined her sister as part owner of Bridge to Independence In-Home Care for seniors. Shannon had graduated two years earlier with a Bachelor of Social Work and had worked at Senior Citizens of Greater Dallas (now The Senior Source) and at Golden Acres Dallas Home for the Jewish aged.

Ms. Fothergill continued working with the geriatric community as a Medical Social Worker at Doctors Hospital in Dallas for three years. Shannon had a passion that had been embedded in her since she had been brought up around grandparents both maternal and paternal and even had the privilege of knowing her great-grandparents.

As a child, Shannon and her sister had spent summers passing out flyers in the local area offering to provide housekeeping, laundry service, and errand running to seniors in need.
