Jodie M. Heal, President

Jodie Heal, President Ask...for Home Care

Jodie Miller Heal literally grew up with ASK…for Home Care, which her mother founded when she was just 2 years old. She was steeped in the traditions of family values that have shaped our philosophy, including a special relationship with her grandfather, who lived peacefully at home with her family during her entire childhood. She is the perfect choice to transition the business to the next generation, without losing it’s unique essence.
Today, Jodie is not only an accomplished CPA with her own firm, Heal Accounting, but she has more than twenty years of experience in accounting and business advisory services, including her affiliation with ASK in various positions.  She also belongs to several professional organizations, serves on numerous Boards, including our local Chamber, and is active in many fundraising endeavors.  In addition to this rich heritage, her vast knowledge of modern business practices, financial management, and technology will ensure to Ask…for Home Care remains at the forefront of modern healthcare practices.

Administrative Staff

Sarah Dailey, Director of Nursing

Sarah Dailey, RN

Sarah comes to us with a BS in Nursing from the University of Maine at Fort Kent, a BA in Business/Economics from the University of Maine at Farmington and an Associates in Nursing from Southern Maine Community College.  Sarah joined the ASK’s nursing staff at a time when she thought her nursing career was over due to illness.  She persevered through the challenges brought on by her illness and is a vital part of the ASK team.  She not only brought her passion for nursing to ASK, but also her amazing creativity.  All of our holiday cards and special occasion cards are created by Sarah.  When she is not at ASK Sarah teaches classes in scrap-booking and card making as well as selling her beautiful creations at local craft fairs.  Her personal experiences together with her years of hospital experience make her the perfect person to mange medical services for our clients and supervise and mentor our nursing staff.

Are you unsure what the difference is between RNs, CNAs, PSS’ or Home Health Aides?  The Maine Direct Service Worker Program has created a website that helps to show the differences.  For more information on what qualifies someone for a specific health care role visit their website Healthcare & Human Services Career Pathway page.
