The company provides information about assisted living for the elderly and the disabled to physicians, patients, family members, and the long-term health care industry. The company also said that Higgins and Clifton Kagawa, CEO of Broadband Travel and Venture Capital Communications, will join its board as new members. Hawaii-based AssistGuide started in 1998, and has expanded to Dallas, Houston and St. Louis.
