Tony Mau

Owner

I’m Tony Mau. I spent 22 years in the Corporate world before finding my calling in Home Care. I was inspired by my mother in law to start this business after she spent time in our home after a hospital stay. As I explored options for her to return to her home, I struggled finding answers to my questions revolving around her comfort and safety. I now insure anyone with questions about staying in their home gets the needed information to make an informed decision. My wife, Kari and I live in Yankton. We have 3 grown children. Hayden, Cooper & Jarod.
