Home Instead Senior Care formally announced the opening of a new office in Searcy. The office at 1311 E. Race Ave. will be the hub of services for the community and White County.
Including hiring and training area caregivers to assist, stimulate and encourage seniors, which allows them to remain at home, individuals and family members who are looking for alternatives can learn more about non-medical home care provided by the company. Home Instead Senior Care provides more than 2 million hours of care to seniors in White, Lonoke and Pulaski Counties.
Randy Reynolds, executive director of Harding Place in Searcy, said since developing a relationship with Home Instead Senior Care for residents, the facility has gone from 68 percent occupancy to a lengthy waiting list.
Matt McClure, the owner of the local Home Instead Senior Care offices, said in addition to providing services for residents of assisted living facilities, caregivers provided one-on-one care in homes throughout the area for seniors from four hours a day to 24 hours a day.
"Our motto is, 'To us, it's personal,'" McClure said. "Growing our business in White County and Searcy, opening an office here that will train hundreds of caregivers and provide even more of our services locally, reiterates our dedication to the seniors we provide care, to the communities we support and to our motto."
In addition to the office in Searcy, Home Instead Senior Care has an office in North Little Rock, Ark.
Home Instead offers free monthly newsletters with tips and advice for caregivers of elderly loved ones.
Each Home Instead Senior Care franchise is independently owned and operated.
