Our Mission 

Our logo represents the mission of iffs Eldercare Consultants, LLC and the services we provide to our clients. 

We based our logo on two natural and living things – the egg and pine cone. The egg reminds us of nest eggs, protection, self-containment, and having all needs met for health, well-being, and the future.
