About Us

Who We are

Just as Family specializes in care for children and adults of all ages. We are locally owned, professionally operated, and completely independent. We proudly serve Northern Colorado and the surrounding areas.

While many other care companies charge high rates to cover franchise fees, national advertising, and overhead costs, Just as Family is not burdened by any of these. We pass the savings on directly to you, while providing the best quality of care. We emphasize care and respect for those you care about.

The owner of Just as Family, Mary Nell Klein, was raised in a large family. Mary Nell grew up in Omaha, Nebraska and began caring for children in 1989. She is the baby of 7 children, with 5 older brothers and 1 older sister, who now has 7 children of her own. With the personal experiences acquired through a lifetime of family care giving, she is uniquely suited to care for your loved ones. Her passion and dedication comes from the positive experience of helping others. Be it childcare or senior care, or that especially delicate time when the elderly need assistance at the end stages of life, Mary Nell has the experience and dedication you deserve. Her desire to make a difference in the lives of others is what has made Just as Family a success.

Mary Nell Klein is reliable, personable, honest, cheerful, patient, educated, and has a lifetime of experience with all ages. As a youngster, she started to nanny at the age of 11 for a set of twins who were born prematurely with several health problems and extreme needs. Since then, she has gained experience working with disabled, wheelchair bound, non-verbal children. She has also cared for those with Down’s syndrome, autism, and various medical needs, including tube feeding.
