With an aging population (the 85-and-older demopgraphic is expected to triple in the next 40 years to approximately 219 million) and the unprecedented fact that most adult children work and have little to no time to devote to the caregiving process, eldercare solutions are needed now more than ever before.

Partners in Senior Care's Mission:

Partners in Senior Care is family- and locally-owned. A client will always deal with one of Partners in Senior Care’s family members. With this family-focused philosophy, Partners in Senior Care strivers to be an extension of the client’s family and believes, “it is our family taking care of the client’s family.” Partners in Senior Care’s phones always go to a person, never to an answering machine. They also have a vested interest in their clients. They have walked in the adult child’s shoes on a personal level with their own caregiving needs for their families. As Partners in Senior Care says, “We have been the client, the adult child who needs help caring for their loved ones.”

Partners in Senior Care's Clientele:

Partners in Senior Care’s ideal client is an adult child (professional) who needs help with taking care of their adult parent or loved one. The adult child is typically a career person, or they may not live close to “mom” to do the caregiving. It is important to note that while the adult child is the person Partners in Senior Care deals with in terms of finances, etc., the senior always remains the primary client. Another target client for Partners in Senior Care is the senior advisor, such as a bank trust officer and elder law attorney.
