Quality Care for Quality Life
A Lending Hand, Inc. has specialized in quality care for over 10 years. Their caregivers and staff contribute to their successful caregiving by possessing a positive attitude which improves each of their clients’ outlook on life.
In keeping with Italian family tradition, the owner Tina Scarpino, cared for her own mother and father, John and Frances, for several years before deciding to enroll in a certified Medical Assistant program at Keiser University. After receiving her certification in 1997, she went to work for an internal medicine private practice in Sarasota.
Throughout the years, she became determined to establish her own company that could provide a more personalized approach to health care, specifically home health care. With the support of her family, she founded A Lending Hand Inc. (“ALH”) in 2005. To this day, A Lending Hand is family owned and operated by Tina, her husband Frank and their two daughters, Tina Marie and Francesca.
Tina Marie holds a Master’s degree in Human Resources Management from Florida International University and Francesca holds a Bachelor’s degree in Marketing from the University of South Florida. Tina’s husband, Frank, has owned a restaurant, Mamma Onesti’s in Sarasota and Bradenton for over 30 years.
Frank is responsible for ALH’s meal preparation services and strives to ensure your loved ones are consuming nutritious meals with awareness to their dietary restrictions. Tina and her family’s main focus is to guarantee that every client is treated with dignity and respect. ALH’s business model is simple: “Treat everyone like family!”

“Both my sister and I wanted to thank you for all your help and caring over the past 4 years for our mom. Words don’t seem enough. It means so much to us that you were always there in our best interest always. Tina, you made it personal and it did not go unnoticed. You were there anytime there was an incident, a problem or a crisis and that makes the difference. Thank you also for coming to share in the memorial and for bringing the lovely tray of food. Thank you Tina from the bottom of our hearts.” -T & D, Sarasota, FL
