My Home Care Journey
For me, realizing that home care was the right work for me was a process rather than an epiphany. I had worked in the energy industry for 20 years when I began to feel that it was time for a change. From my interest in architecture, I began the business of flipping houses, which was enjoyable but still not quite everything I wanted. Flipping houses did allow me to be involved in my community, purchasing distressed properties and turning them into brand new homes. So often, I would find a lot of these properties were being sold by older adults, many of whom were moving because they could not maintain their homes, or they simply could no longer live in their homes unaided.
Around this same time, my wife and I began to look into care options for my parents and her parents. This led to a bigger discussion about the growing need for in-home care. And, that’s when it clicked into place, and I started looking into home care. When I did, I found that it checked all the boxes: it allowed me to engage in the community and to provide a valuable service to people who need it most.
The Family Approach to Care
I have always had a passion for helping people, which comes from growing up in a family of service-minded carers. This instilled in me the need to get involved in my community and to serve others, especially the community’s most vulnerable members. In the past, this manifested through active involvement in my church and youth soccer. Through ComForCare, I’ve been able to provide to so many other members of my community, and that has been incredibly rewarding.
At ComForCare of Lehigh Valley, we take the family approach: We care for our clients and their families as if they were our own families. We’re in the business of helping people to live their best lives possible, which means that we put people first before business.
