Caring for Families With Aging Parents
Dara and Brad Trout are the new owners of the Seniors Helping Seniors in-home care, which helps older adults stay self-sufficient. Serving western Montgomery and upper Bucks counties, the non-medical home care organization provides companionship, transportation, meal preparation, overnight stays and home maintenance services all by seniors who get paid for their work.
Dara and Brad decided to become franchise partners because of their own experiences. When Dara’s mother was diagnosed with Alzheimer’s disease, they learned firsthand about the emotional and physical effects of caring for an aging parent. Dara went from being a daughter to a caregiver.
As their friends started to experience the same thing with their parents, Dara drew on her personal experience to guide people through a process she had become familiar with. An opportunity like Seniors Helping Seniors made sense.
“In addition to providing help, we give seniors who want to give back to their community a way to remain active and make a contribution. Caregivers and family members have peace of mind knowing that a responsible, caring and kind senior is helping,” said Brad.
Philip Yocom, and his wife, Kiran, co-founded Seniors Helping Seniors in-home services, as a nonprofit serving Berks County over 10 years ago and continues to provide over 1,000 hours of service every month.
Philip Yocom said, "We want the existing Seniors Helping Seniors organization and our franchises to be the first place that seniors in need of non-medical services and those seeking extra income call."
