"Your journey…our passion."
Elfin Services is a family owned and operated business started in 1998 by Yvonne and Steve Polkow, after they spent several years helping older friends work through some difficult and complex personal issues. The Polkows realized there was a great need for high quality advocacy for the elderly and others in need; and for experienced, compassionate Care Management and Caregiving services.
Elfin Services has grown steadily and carefully since its inception. Today the company employs several Care Managers, over 40 Caregivers, and has an ever growing number of clients. We provide a diverse range of services to the elderly and others in need. Elfin Services adheres to the highest ethical guidelines including those of the National Association of Professional Geriatric Care Managers, and the Society of Certified Senior Advisors, while also maintaining oversight, local rules and state laws to stay in compliance with the Department of Health.
As a local company, Elfin also eliminates the oversight of a franchised corporation allowing more flexibility and customization of care with a more personal touch.
