Stacia Dunson, founder and chief executive officer of Harmony House Calls and Medical Services in Jackson, decided to open a home hospice service out of a desire to assist the elderly patients who would face long wait times during her former career as a nurse practitioner at Jackson Hinds Comprehensive Health Center.

“The original plan was to do house calls, which was something that used to happen in my grandparents’ time,” Dunson says. “I could provide care for the elderly in their homes without them having to travel. I felt doing that would serve a better purpose both for them and for myself.”

Dunson opened Harmony as a house-call-only service in July 2018 and later expanded to also operating a physical clinic in October 2018. The clinic provides services such as diabetes education for patients and their families, as well as medications, and diet and exercise management. This summer, Dunson plans partner with local physical therapists, trainers, social workers and other community health centers to launch the R.E.A.C.H., or Reaching Every American Concerning Health and Awareness, initiative. It will work to educate the Jackson community on topics such as heart disease, obesity, diabetes and health education, she says. —Dustin Cardon
