Happy Thanksgiving. As this picture says, Thanksgiving is a time to give, a time to love and a time to reflect on the things that matter most in life. As I reflect, I am truly grateful for all of you. I am humbly honored to support such an amazing group of people and to have an office team that is dedicated, supportive and spreads kindness each day. Each one of you have touched my heart in many many ways. So as we start Thanksgiving I would like to say a simple "Thank you" for the countless things you do every day as they do not go unrecognized. I am truly blessed. My suggestion is that you take a moment and find your peace and joy and when you do you will see what you are grateful for. From my heart to yours - Happy Thanksgiving to all of you. Enjoy the day.

'I just really felt called to be there': Dierks Bentley spends final days with Valley woman battling cancer

In life we all have people that that have touched our hearts and this girl is one that touched mine. Not only did she have Autism, she fought cancer with courage, strength and positiveness. A few weeks ago she was blessed to have a personal visit with Dierks Bentley. A visit that would forever touch both of them. In her final days, Dierks stayed by her side playing his music and bring her joy and happiness. She had not spoken in 2 days and when he was leaving she spoke "I Love you". This person touched so many lives and her parents gave her everything they possibly could. As Baylee's Dad said to Dierks and words to take to our hearts..."It's never to late to make a lifelong friend". The friendship these two developed in a short time is something they will all carry with them forever. Baylee - rest in peace. You were truly a fighter and will be in our hearts forever.

Bentley had visited Baylee Barradas back in May. Baylee's family says he went above and beyond during the final few days of her life.

Its Halloween time! A time for traditions, friends and having fun. Our 2020 Halloween looks so much different this year. A Blue Moon, Daylight savings, social distancing and the ever dreaded risk of Covid along with all the masks! But as we all embark on the day of Halloween 2020...embrace the chance to create new traditions. A Halloween "easter basket", a treasure "hunt", Painting/carving pumpkins, finding creative ways to give out candy covid style, playing games and so much more. No matter what the activity you do, one thing remains...being with those you love and that is the best gift of all. Embrace the day, find the positives and make it amazing and oh yea - take time to just sit with your head looking up and enjoy the blue moon that only comes once every 18-19 years. I truly wish you the happiest Halloween! Everyone be safe, post pics of the costumes and enjoy the moment!

Our Story

Affinity Family Care is contracted with the State of Arizona, Division of Developmental Disabilities to provide Respite, Habilitation and Attendant Care to indiviudals with disabilities both in their homes and in the community.

Affinity Family Care was founded in 2005 by Tracy Stewart, because she wanted the best for her amazing son Cole, who has special needs and a rare complex disability. Through her journey, he has taught her, unselfishly the true meaning of giving back and helping others. Over the years, she has been his advocate, coordinated his medical care and worked together with his support coordinators to develop and maintain his goals that support the services he receives. Through her experiences and knowledge, Tracy now supports many in the community by improving the lives of people with disabilities and their families. She is always there, always available and will provide support to anyone who needs it.

We strive to provide the highest level of care by hiring quality caregivers specific to the needs of the indiviudals and their families. Our caregivers are dedicated, committed and trained to provide a level of care that helps each individual reach their full potential. Our diverse approach encompasses many highly effective teaching techniques, which offers every client the opporutnity to advance. We empower our providers with the training and support they need to be effective and develop a positive and fun relationshp with the individuals they serve. This indiviudalized personal support approach helps achieve a unique bond which creates confidence, optimism and overall success.

As a parent or family to an individual diagnosed with a developmental disability, the journey can be tough. We want you to know that YOU ARE NOT ALONE and we are there to provide help and support with navigating situations you are often faced with, and supporting you with recruiting, training and employing the providers that are critical to your loved ones daily needs. We also educate and empower our families and indiviudals we serve so they can receive the best possible care and services they deserve.
