National senior care company opens in Lehighton

Senior Helpers, one of the nation’s premier providers of personalized in-home senior care, today announced the official opening of its Lehighton location, to be managed and operated by Carly Keck.

The new franchise will serve senior citizens and their families throughout Carbon and Monroe counties.

It hopes to bring more than 50 new jobs to the region over the next year. Senior Helpers’ professionally trained caregivers will help local seniors continue to enjoy the comfort of their own home despite age-related illnesses and mobility challenges.

“I was immediately drawn to Senior Helpers by the quality services it offers, its friendly and knowledgeable staff, and the potential to be a part of a company that is known as the first in the industry to provide specialized caregiver training in Alzheimer’s, dementia and Parkinson’s disease care,” said Keck.

“Growing up, I spent a great deal of time with my grandparents, which ultimately inspired me to study developmental psychology and work in senior care. My connection with seniors is special, and our team is proud to provide a valuable resource to the community by helping to alleviate the stress associated with caregiving and ensure a better quality of life for families through personalized in-home senior care.”

Senior Helpers operates with a vision to be the leading home care company in each community it serves. Its caregivers in Lehighton are trained to offer the highest level of care possible based on the company’s Senior Gems Alzheimer’s and Dementia care program.

As the gold standard for excellence in personalized in-home senior care, the program was developed in conjunction with nationally recognized dementia care expert Teepa Snow, Positive Approach LLC.

Local residents will also benefit from the company’s Parkinson’s Care Program, a specialized training program for their caregivers created in conjunction with leading experts from the Parkinson’s Foundation’s Centers of Excellence network.

“We’re pleased to welcome Carly to our team as the newest Senior Helpers franchise owner,” said Peter Ross, chief executive officer, Senior Helpers.

“She brings a passion for her community and an understanding of the importance of in-home senior care to her new role. This will serve her well, and will be rewarding for seniors and families living in Carbon and Monroe counties.”

Senior Helpers newest franchise office is located at 185 Interchange Road, Lehighton. For more information, please visit www.seniorhelpers.com. For inquiries and information regarding available jobs, call Carly Keck at 484-613-1800 or email ckeck@seniorhelpers.com.
