Local Entrepreneurs Open New Home Helpers & Direct Link Franchise in Simsbury

The Petrenkos to Offer Affordable Alternative to Assisted Living or Nursing Care Facilities

Simsbury, CT (PRWEB) November 06, 2013 - As more than 70 million Americans will reach age 65 in the next two decades, the need for in-home senior care continues to soar. Local entrepreneurs Vladimir and Elena Petrenko are lending a helping hand by launching a local home care agency to meet the needs of residents in Simsbury and the surrounding areas.

As part of the nation’s leading franchise specializing in comprehensive home care for seniors, new mothers and other individuals needing recuperative and continuing care, Home Helpers & Direct Link of Simsbury began serving the local community in August of this year.

With a background in business ownership and healthcare administration, the Petrenkos decided to open a local Home Helpers franchise based on the desire to own a rewarding business that gives back to the community by helping seniors and their families.

"As a new business owner, I am excited about the opportunity to help local seniors lead healthier, happier and more rewarding lives in the comfort of their own homes," Vladimir Petrenko said. "We strive to deliver the same quality of care we’d expect for our own families while offering clients a more affordable alternative to assisted living or nursing care facilities."

Home Helpers offers free in-home consultations and works with clients one-on-one to tailor a flexible care plan to meet their specific needs and budgets. Services offered include companionship, personal hygiene, meal preparation, transportation, and medical services, including medication management, vital signs monitoring and care management.

Direct Link’s exclusive line of medical alert systems are monitored 24/7 by a CSAA 5-Diamond Certified Care Center, enabling seniors to live independently at home for as long as safely possible. The Direct Link product suite includes land-line and cellular personal emergency response systems (PERS), automated medication dispensers, GPS client-tracking Care Watch and remote vital signs monitoring units. If a Direct Link unit is activated or a reading is abnormal, the device alerts Home Helpers staff, 911 or any pre-established contacts, thereby easing family anxieties and maximizing client independence.

"In a society where family members sometimes live hundreds of miles from each other, Home Helpers & Direct Link can step in to fill the role of a good neighbor," Elena Petrenko said. "Because our clients decide how often they need us and what services we can provide for them, it allows Home Helpers & Direct Link to offer affordable and convenient choices based on client specific requirements."
