About Us

We at Safe Harbor Homecare, Inc. would like to take this time to introduce ourselves.

Our company is led by Mrs. Ester Ramos RN, who with 40 years of experience in the health care industry is the guiding force of this company. She has owned and managed the Aiea Care Home for thirteen years. She also managed a home health care agency in California with 200 employees and caregivers.

With her wealth of knowledge in caring for the elders, we are able to provide quality service in home care. Our certified care givers are of the same heart as hers in giving care to your loved ones.

As you know our elderly population is increasing and many do not know that this service is available to them. As we have found, many would prefer to live out their later years in the comfort of their own home for as long as they can.

There is so much to know in preparing for our later years and to start preparing we need to be educated. We provide a variety of home care services including home safety assessments.

Our goal is to provide compassionate care while opening the hearts and minds of the family in caring for their loved ones.

Having been a nurse for a long time, Esther Ramos has an in-depth understanding of people and their illnesses. This is a benefit in helping families, because often times, while the elderly require assistance, there are also medical issues that need to be answered or evaluated

Having grown up in the islands, Ramos possesses a certain cultural sensitivity and general awareness of where people are coming from. Everyone has certain expectations, and if you just see things one way and not understand the person, then you lose the contact with that particular individual.

We had one particular client that had another nursing service on board. The client wasn’t happy, because they felt that their grandmother was not being treated as an individual. When we were brought in, they were really amazed at the difference, because we treated her as a unique person. We were able to support her and help her to live in her home until she passed away, which was her wish to do.

As Esther Ramos approached her elderly years, she knew there were a lot of problems seniors faced in their later years. She realized she needed to be involved in helping in the elderly population.

Ramos graduated from Farrington High School, and received her nursing degree at the University of Hawaii. She lived on the mainland for 25 years, and ran a home care company for about 12 years.

She has been in the field of community care involving elderly care for about 30 years. She founded Safe Harbor Homecare about three and a half years ago. At one time, Ramos ran a 23-bed care home, expanded care home, here in the islands in Aiea.

Michelle Hartbarger also has a background in hospitality. Dealing with the clients, and also their family members, is part of customer service. Hartbarger is the office manager for Safe Home Harbor, and come from Guam.
