Senior care agency expands to South Shore
No Place Like Home Senior Care is licensed with the state of Nevada Department of Health as a Personal Care Agency and is expanding its business into South Lake Tahoe and hiring local caregivers.
No Place Like Home Senior Care provides an affordable solution for older individuals or couples capable of managing their physical needs, but who require non-medical assistance, light housework, meal preparation and/or companionship in order to remain at home, according to a company release.
According to Rick Ackerson, founder/CEO, services can be arranged far as little as two hours, or up to 24 hours a day. Short-term assistance or longer term care is available seven days a week, including holidays.
When a potential client calls the company, Ackerson will arrange a meeting with the client and his or her family to discuss what services are needed. Cost is on an hourly basis so hours can be decreased or increased based on changing needs.
Caregivers are screened, fingerprint background checked, bonded and insured, Ackerson said.
“Elder care has become the top problem in our society today as it replaces child care as the number one issue for the men and women in today’s work force.” Ackerson said.
“Already people are spending more time caring for or providing for the care of their elderly parents that they did caring for their own children,” he added. “The problem will only magnify with the aging of the population.”
