A new business opened this week in Shubuta. Handy's Elderly Daycare offers caregivers a chance to have a break, without having to worry about the welfare of a loved one.
Owner, Handy Smith, said he saw the need for this kind of service.
"To know that your parents or your loved ones are in the hands of someone else will give them a great comfort that they can be able to do the things that they need," said Smith. "To run the errands. To go to the doctor. To just have a quiet moment for themselves."
Handy's Elderly Daycare operates from 8:00 a. m. to 2:00p.m., Monday through Friday. It serves up to 40 clients from Clarke, Wayne, and Jasper Counties.
