At Seniors Helping Seniors® Jordan Lake, we have a passion for meeting the needs of seniors in a way that provides both dignity and a sense of camaraderie. Our owner(s) Eric Oltman firmly believe we can do that through serving seniors in our community, which includes: Cary, Apex, Pittsboro, parts of Chapel Hill, Fuquay-Varina and parts of Raleigh.
Eric met his wife, Cory, in college and they have 4 children who are all currently in college. They moved to the area 5 years ago after living in Brussels for almost 10 years. Eric and Cory developed an understanding and commitment for helping seniors after helping Eric's mom, Jeanine, who had Alzheimer's and Cory's dad, Tony, who had cancer. We consider it a privilege to help families take care of their loved ones.
Our Seniors Helping Seniors® Core Values
We match seniors who need a hand with mature, active women and men who have a passion for helping others. Seniors Helping Seniors® was founded in 1998 with two simple ideas:
- Seniors can help each other age more happily and gracefully.
- Seniors who give, and those who receive, benefit equally.
- An experienced, reliable resource for seniors who want to stay in their own homes.
- In-home care, companionship, and services from seniors who enjoy helping others.
- Reasonable hourly rates for seniors who want care and companionship.
- Reasonable hourly wages to seniors who want to provide these services.
About Our Founders
Seniors Helping Seniors® in-home care service was co-founded by Kiran and Philip Yocom in order to realize Kiran’s personal mission of providing care for those who can’t care for themselves. Before coming to the United States from India, Kiran worked with Mother Teresa for 14 years.
How We've Grown
From our roots in Pennsylvania, and our first match in 1998, Seniors Helping Seniors® in-home services has grown to include hundreds of locations in the US and Internationally. We continue to grow and evolve, adding new services to better assist seniors and refining our caregiver training as new industry best practices come to light.
