For Rickey, the transition into home health services was a natural fit.
Rickey chose Senior Care because he wants to make a difference in seniors’ lives through home health services. He went through a personal situation with his grandmother. As his grandmother aged, it became difficult for her to care for herself. She would sometimes fall and hurt herself with no one around. The assisted living facility where she resided became concerned after she fell several times. His grandmother would sometimes fall without alerting the staff because she feared being removed from the facility. After another fall, the facility decided to terminate her residency. At that point the family had limited options and time. The family decided to place her into a nursing home. During that time the family noticed her quality of life decline. In addition, the costs were higher for lesser care.
Through research, he learned out about in-home senior care. Home health services like in hoe senior care would have addressed most of the challenges his grandmother faced. Someone could help her in the day with her daily tasks and cooking. On the other side, she could have remained in the comfort of her home with a better quality of life. His new purpose and passion is to stop that from happening to someone else’s loved one.
