Company: Specialty Home Care provides non-medical personal care, transportation services and light housekeeping for seniors needing assistance with daily living activities. Our competent, compassionate caregivers provide services in the client’s home or in residential facilities on a temporary or long term basis.
We are an agency licensed by the state health department, not a registry, so all caregivers are employees. We are responsible for all taxes, workers compensation insurance and liability coverage. All caregivers pass background and driving record checks, are insured, bonded and trained for the highest level of security, safety and satisfaction for seniors and their loved ones.
From companionship to Alzheimer’s and dementia care, Specialty Home Care assures your caregiver is prepared to help make your life or your loved one’s life happier, healthier and fuller. When you use the services of Specialty Home Care, you can be sure you or your loved ones are receiving the quality of care you deserve.
Leadership: Specialty Home Care is a locally owned and operated company, not a franchise. The owners are actively involved in the business and committed to providing a “family” experience for our clients and employees. Don is an attorney and former non-profit executive with many years of serving seniors as financial counselor, attorney and caregiver. His practice is concentrated in elder law and estate planning for seniors.
Jan is a busy mother of 7 and grandmother of 15 who has served seniors in the community, her church, and family throughout her life, including keeping them in her home, providing care and transportation, and enlisting the services of her husband and children in many tasks at their homes. Their love for and experience with serving seniors has become a passion for Don and Jan.
When Don left his role as the Counsel and Director of Advancement for a large foundation, he looked at various job and business opportunities. Senior care seemed best suited to fully engage his interests and skills. After looking at several franchises, he found Specialty Home Care and immediately loved the idea of taking over an existing and operating business whose caregivers have served the community since 2007.
We found the clients and caregivers of Specialty Home Care to be a family and we intend to continue our commitment to the values and culture of this respected and appreciated company. We do hope to grow the business and expand the service area to include Dauphin, Lebanon, Cumberland, northern Lancaster and northern York counties.
Caregivers: Our home care workers share the family values of the owners. They serve as caregivers because of their own love of seniors and passion for helping. The number one reason cited by our employees for choosing this vocation is a personal love for and commitment to seniors. Assisting the elder community with the activities of daily living so they can retain their independence provides the highest level of job satisfaction to our caregivers.
Caregivers are trained to provide the highest level of non-medical personal care, to understand the challenges faced by our clients and to serve with competence and compassion while providing a safe and caring environment.
Most of our home care workers have years of experience helping seniors in facilities and homes. For some it has been their only career. Specialty Home Care’s selection and training process assure your caregiver will meet all your expectations, and we guarantee it.
We hope you will allow us to demonstrate the difference a locally owned and operated company with truly caring and committed staff and caregivers can make in serving your in-home elder care needs. We would love to make you a part of the SHC family!
