"REACHING FROM THE HEART"
Founded in 2017, in Houston County, Georgia, the National Caregivers Network, NCN, and its subsidiary, Caregiver Concierge Services (DBA), is a virtual platform for Houston County and Middle Georgia Family Caregivers. We are a business and industry alliance of concierge services, products and resources that will support the daily and lifestyle needs of Houston County and Middle Georgia Family Caregivers. As the epitome of virtual shopping, NCN improves the end-of-life experience and other well deserved features of both, comfort and peace during that time for residents with enormous need and extreme limitations. NCN is posturing as a communal business collaborative via membership alliances/subscriptions. NCN is a communal collaborative. Upon entry, NCN travels throughout the Family Caregivers end-of-life journey, with the loved one through door-to-door delivery services.
A Caring Welcome from the Founder & CEO
This is a Welcome that I have been excited to write for almost two years, because it is a Special Welcome to You and the formal launch of the National Caregivers Network (NCN Georgia).
What I love about this business is that it will become a part of our growing population, culture and our economy. Online shopping is the new lifestyle, a lifestyle most befitting as an everyday convenience for our aging community and the family members who care for them. Together, and with the “endorsement” of businesses, Churches, organizations, legacy members of the community, and community leaders, we commit to opening new doors of convenience to an increasing population of residents: the Aging, Elderly, Disabled, Veteran, Chronically Ill and End-Of-Life Loved One. Every day, we all see the aging process in our communities and around the world every day, and we want to help. NCN helps to fix that; together, we turn sudden lifestyle change into effective action, embracing the heart of our community.
Shirley Morman is a native of Georgia. She has resided in Houston County, Georgia for more than a decade. She retired from the University of Maryland (1974-2007). Shirley Morman is an award winning director by the University of Maryland, College Park, federal, state, local and county governments, for her academic and social research, upon partnership with community, organizations, business and industry.
In 2017, Shirley Morman experienced the meaning of Caregiving through Caregiving to her husband of 41 years. This experience is the impetus to the inception of the National Caregivers Network.
To provide premier concierge services (door-to-door delivery) for Family Caregivers and to be the leading concierge door-to-door delivery service ( “Clearinghouse for door-to-door delivery”), is reflected throughout the NCN Georgia website as well as documented commitment in our commitment to excellence, excellence shaped by almost 4 decades of academic and social research upon partnerships with federal, state, local, and county governments, as well as, community, organizations, business and industry, resulting in exemplary servitude to America’s citizenry. Moreover, our foci specialize in reasonable accommodations for our growing communities and reflect our values in supporting our Houston County Georgia citizenry and the Central Georgia community.
So let’s move forward to a more unified enhanced way of living in Houston County and Central Georgia!
NCN caringly walks alongside Houston County and Central Georgia Family Caregivers. NCN travels from the Family Caregivers point of caregiving throughout the end-of-life journey with the loved one.
As a business of alliances, accessing services, products and resources, NCN alleviates some challenges faced by Family Caregivers. We identify, engage and support the following segmented populations:
End-Of-Life Loved One
National Caregivers Network (NCN) is comprised of alliances with business, industry, legacy community members, organizations, and churches. Our alliances include small and evolving local businesses as well as established corporate businesses. Our alliances decrease the encumbered responsibilities and duties associated with caregiving and assist in facilitating the house-bound with ONE-STOP shopping conveniences. Consequently, NCN facilitates a more empathetic experience for Family Caregivers and constituents near end-of-life.

How The National Caregivers Network Works
Family Caregivers may shop at their convenience. We provide a shift in lifestyle access for local door-to-door service and product delivery.
As a local business, industry, legacy community member, organization or church in Central Georgia, your business will engage with others who share your commitment to meeting the lifestyle needs of your customers, thus our communities’ constantly changing populations. As a member of the NCN Business Resource Network, you allow NCN to showcase your online business logo with Family Caregivers as a basis for online shopping for your services, products, resources and where possible, provide seniors and Family Caregivers discounts.
Significant Network Benefits For Family Caregivers & Seniors
Family Caregivers have an overwhelming challenge of taking care of a sick or terminally ill loved one. Often, simple services and needs go unattended due to constant attention to the loved one. Many Caregivers and the elderly struggle to find the best painters, electricians, plumbers, florist, grocers, lawyers, drug stores, funeral parlors, transportation services and much more. The NCN Georgia Business Alliance Network bridges the gap to services, products and resources in Houston County and the Central Georgia community through:
A virtual network that minimizes the Caregivers’ weekly workload.
Quarterly newsletter/seasonal newsletter resource tips and helpful hints.
Relevant discussion topics for Caregivers and family members.
Resources for legal concerns.
House Cleaning, Lawn and Gardening Services.
Medical Transport, Pharmacy Transportation and Family Travel Services.
Funeral Planning Services
Grief Counseling and more.
