As part of the nation’s leading franchise specializing in comprehensive home care for seniors, new mothers and other individuals needing recuperative and continuing care, Home Helpers & Direct Link of Manhattan, IL recently began serving the local community.
Spearson spent nearly 20 years working for a Fortune 500 company, but when it came to starting his own business, he wanted to create something more personal. As a certified volunteer Fire Fighter and EMTA for his town, he grew to love being in service to his community. When his own grandmother and aunts underwent treatment for cancer, he also became intimately familiar with the challenges faced by those requiring compassionate care in their own homes. His interest in serving the community and providing care for those struggling to remain independent brought him to Home Helpers.
“As a new business owner, I am excited about the opportunity to help local seniors lead healthier, happier and more rewarding lives in the comfort of their own homes,” Spearson said. “We strive to deliver the same quality of care we’d expect for our own families while offering clients a more affordable alternative to assisted living or nursing care facilities.”
Home Helpers offers free in-home consultations and works with clients one-on-one to tailor a flexible care plan to meet their specific needs and budgets. Services offered include companionship, personal hygiene, meal preparation, transportation, and medical services, including medication management, vital signs monitoring and care management.
Direct Link’s exclusive line of medical alert systems are monitored 24/7 by a CSAA 5-Diamond Certified Care Center, enabling seniors to live independently at home for as long as safely possible. The Direct Link product suite includes land-line and cellular personal emergency response systems (PERS), automated medication dispensers, GPS client-tracking Care Watch and remote vital signs monitoring units. If a Direct Link unit is activated or a reading is abnormal, the device alerts Home Helpers staff, 911 or any pre-established contacts, thereby easing family anxieties and maximizing client independence.
“In a society where family members sometimes live hundreds of miles from each other, Home Helpers & Direct Link can step in to fill the role of a good neighbor,” Spearson said. “Because our clients decide how often they need us and what services we can provide for them, it allows Home Helpers & Direct Link to offer affordable and convenient choices based on client specific requirements.”
