Visiting Angels of Doylestown PA: Providing seniors with personalized non-medical, in-home care

by June Portnoy

Jacqueline Mekanik, Co-Director of Visiting Angels of Doylestown PA, has professional and personal experience working with seniors in need of assistance. In addition to being a nurse for 25 years, she and her husband, Steve, cared for her grandparents at their home when they were ill.

“Even as a nurse, I saw how challenging it was to care for your loved ones without any help,” says Jacqueline. “However, I didn’t want to change their entire routines and uproot them from their familiar surroundings by placing them in an assisted living facility.”

This first-hand experience gave Jacqueline and Steve the motivation to purchase their Visiting Angels franchise, the nation’s largest and fastest growing network of at-home assisted living services for seniors. This non-medical senior care agency offers both personal and companion care services for your elderly family members.

Poco’s Mexican-American Restaurant & Bar: Quality Mexican and American food

by June Portnoy

When Wayne Cauble moved from Southern California to Bucks County three decades ago, he discovered there were no Mexican restaurants located in the area. To fill that void, 28 years ago he established Poco’s Mexican-American Restaurant & Bar, introducing Mexican food to this community.

Today, this restaurant continues to specialize in Southern California-style Mexican food.

“I got the idea for some of our recipes from watching my mom cooking in the kitchen when I was young,” says Wayne. “We serve many authentic dishes that you won’t find elsewhere, in addition to your favorite traditional Mexican meals.”

Doylestown firm provides a refreshingly different approach to practicing law

by June Portnoy

Isgate, Chiccarine & Degroot Attorneys and Counselors at Law, founded in 2007, is a full service law firm concentrating on business, real estate, wills/estate planning and family law. Although a fully established law firm that has earned a positive reputation from its many loyal clients over the years, its attorneys do not fit the image of the stereotypical lawyer you might envision.

“We’re not the average bear when it comes to being a lawyer,” says Ronald Isgate, an original partner of this firm. “We are just normal people who want to be seen that way by our clients.”

It’s common for attorneys at this firm to invite their clients out for a bite to eat after they discuss their case. Each of the three partners has their own outside interests. For example, Ron is a fan of classic cars, so he sometimes invites a client to attend a car show with him.

The Hattery Stove & Still: Serving new American cuisine in a historic environment

by June Portnoy

Inside the Historic Doylestown Inn is The Hattery Stove & Still, a 150-seat bistro that serves modern American food with an old-fashioned flair.

It includes two very unique dining environments. Walk downstairs to the lower level, and you’ll feel like you’re entering a speakeasy from the 1930’s. In fact, a 1936 Oldsmobile is part of the bar, further enhancing this floor’s authenticity. Plus, draft beers are served in the back of a 1930 pickup truck. In addition, the walls are painted with murals of old Prohibition bars.

For a completely different atmosphere, dine on the first level, featuring a hattery theme. “Above the bar, we have 15 old derby hats, each with lights within them,” describes Besmir Kripa, General Manager of this establishment.

Devlin Insurance Agency: Providing the best auto and homeowners coverage at the lowest price

by June Portnoy

How long have you been with your current insurance company, and when was the last time you sat down to review your homeowners or auto coverage?
