Serendipity Elder Services, Inc. was newly licensed by the State of North Carolina as a homemaker-companion agency, located in Black Mountain, to assist residents of Buncombe County.
Owner and administrator Peter W. Schoen is a
long-time elder services provider, and former owner of a successful
homemaker-companion agency, Harmony Elder Services, Inc., in Plantation,
“Western North Carolina has become increasingly
desirable to retirees seeking a temperate climate, arts and culture, a great
health system, a beautiful natural environment, and a sense of community,”
Schoen said. “But aging is inevitable and people often need a little help to
cope with unexpected physical limitations or health challenges.
“Right now, Serendipity is seeking to hire mature, experienced
caregivers,” Schoen said. “All candidates receive orientation and necessary
training, and are required to have a background screening.”
After thirty years as a senior care provider, Schoen believes
that the best caregivers are kind, pleasant, patient, and mature.
Schoen believes that Serendipity – a
professional, fully licensed homemaker-companion service agency – offers the
best possible option for seniors who need nonmedical assistance with daily
living activities to remain independent and enjoy the comfort and familiarity
of the home they love.
Serendipity provides assistance on a flexible
basis: hourly, daily, weekly, and even live-in companionship. Services include
respite for the primary caregiver, meal preparation, light housekeeping,
medication reminders, shopping, companionship, and transportation to medical
appointments, visits with family and friends, worship, malls, parks,
entertainment, and more.
“We’re seeking people in the health and
eldercare services, as well as individuals who have taken care of their own
family members: grandparents, parents, spouses, aunts and uncles,” Schoen said.
“Serendipity offers job opportunities for retirees, housewives, mothers whose
children have grown. We’re looking for people with compassion and respect for
seniors’ needs. People who can relate to our clients’ stage of life and
Schoen, who holds a Bachelor of Science degree
from New York University and a Master’s in Health Services Administration from
Florida International University, is a licensed nursing home administrator with
more than 30 years’ experience.
