About Us

My Daughter Is In Town, Inc., was founded by Melanie Kimmel from a genuine passion to create and improve the way in which we approach caregiving. While caring for her elderly parents, Melanie’s fierce devotion emerged as a result of the poor and unacceptable experiences with caregivers not showing up, exhibiting bad attitudes, not having the same caregiver for each appointment, and her parents’ belongings mysteriously disappearing.


Although she felt fortunate to have the means to personally care for her parents, her time with them as a daughter and caregiver unfolded through a myriad of mixed emotions – and panic. The sudden responsibility of becoming a caregiver and the need to somehow balance this newfound responsibility with her career, her own health, and her husband and family was overwhelming. Melanie quickly recognized that she needed much more education, support, and compassion from the caregiver field.


Today, family caregiving is a tradition that many are unable to pass on due to separation by distance, the demands of daily life, or both. Melanie Kimmel ensures that the tradition of family caregiving is honored through My Daughter Is In Town, Inc. with reliable, trustworthy, and compassionate non-medical caregiving services. With a suite of caregiving solutions that are customized to meet your budgetary needs, Melanie personally manages all client relationships, serves as the liaison with the client’s family, and individually selects, trains, and leads her team members with the highest quality, ethics, standards, and heart.

The Kimmels

Melanie Kimmel is truly passionate about the caregiving services and standards of My Daughter Is In Town, Inc. Her goal is to deliver her clients – and their families – the most compassionate, reliable, trustworthy and cost-efficient non-medical caregiving services that provide peace of mind and a trusted resource during the relationship. Melanie holds a Bachelor of Science degree in Fashion Merchandising from Middle Tennessee State University. She has spent over 24 years in the corporate world as a professional buyer for several national department stores.


Melanie’s second career in non-medical caregiving services was unexpectedly launched from her own journey of caring for her elderly parents. She has successfully applied her leadership, managerial, problem-solving and team-building skills – as well as her grace, compassion, and understanding – to caregiving for clients and their families since 2001. Melanie resides in Ponte Vedra Beach, Florida, with David, her husband of 31 years.

I remember caring for my elderly parents. As part of our routine, we would stroll the aisles at the grocery store and hear other parents say, my daughter will be in town. This resonated with me as no other name seemed more appropriate for a service born out of my own caregiving experiences.

There are only four kinds of people in the world. Those who have been caregivers. Those who are currently caregivers. Those who will be caregivers, and those who will need a caregiver.
