For Immediate Release: March 29, 2006 ANNANDALE, VA – According to a recent study by AARP, 85 percent of older Americans want to “age in place”, remain in their homes after retiring. Jason Sager, owner of Home Instead Senior Care in Annandale, says the number of those wanting to stay in their homes will only increase as the baby-boom generation reaches its senior years.
“Saying good-bye to familiar surroundings and the comfort and security of home isn't always necessary.” “We help older adults with everyday tasks that allow them to live independently,” he said.
Home Instead Senior Care®, the world’s leading provider of non-medical, in-home services to seniors, is pleased to announce the opening of a new franchise in Annandale, serving Northern Virginia. The franchise is independently owned and operated by Sager.
Home Instead Senior Care provides services to seniors wherever they might call home: private or rental residences, assisted-living facilities and care centers. Its employees, who are known as CAREGiversSM, help clients maintain their independence by assisting them with activities of daily living such as meal preparation, laundry, shopping, light housekeeping – even providing companionship.
“Our services are designed for practically any living arrangement where an older adult simply needs human interaction or help with day-to-day activities,” Sager said. “Services are available from just a few hours a day up to 24 hours, seven days a week – including weekends and holidays.”
Sager says compassion and caring for people are the cornerstones of his business.
“Our mission is to treat people the way we would want to be treated,” he said. “This attitude applies to our clients and their families, our CAREGivers and our staff. For instance, we only hire CAREGivers that we would want to take care of our own family members.”
Sager explained that these CAREGivers are all screened, bonded and insured. Moreover, they have a passion for providing the world’s finest senior care. “Many are retired professionals or stay-at-home moms who work for unselfish reasons, in addition to earning a paycheck,” he said. “They want to make a difference for seniors.”
Sager has an MBA from Louisiana State University and received his undergraduate degree from Western Michigan University. Before purchasing the Home Instead franchise, Sager was a financial analyst with ExxonMobil and a sales manager with the Kellogg Company. Recently, he was elected as a member of the Annandale Chamber of Commerce. An accomplished athlete, Sager has completed seven marathons including the Marine Corps and New York City. He also snowboards, skis, bikes, runs and tried amateur bull riding at LSU, lasting almost two seconds.
Sager decided to purchase his Home Instead Senior Care franchise after meeting Paul Hogan, the founder of Home Instead Senior Care, during a speech to his MBA class at LSU. Sager immediately understood the growing need for in-home senior care in bustling Fairfax County.
“We’ve had so many people call and say, ‘I wish I’d known about you before we moved mom out of her home,’” Sager said.
