Senior care company adding 30 jobs in Armstrong
A senior care company will add 70 jobs to its workforce in Armstrong, Beaver, Butler and Indiana counties.
The Home Instead Senior Care network is looking to hire up to 30 home-care professionals in Armstrong County, said Mike Lyon, co-owner of the company that has offices in Apollo and Zelienople.
“We're looking for compassionate and caring individuals who enjoy helping others,” Lyon said.
Part-time and full-time positions are available. No medical skills or training are required.
The aim of in-home senior care is to enhance the quality of life for seniors by providing nonmedical services that includes companionship, light housekeeping and meal planning.
“We're there to make sure their house is clean, that they're safe and that they take their medications correctly,” Lyon said.
The need for caregivers is on the increase, according to literature from the Home Instead Senior Care network. It notes that the number of Americans 65 and older is projected to be about 88.5 million by 2050 — which is more than double the 2010 population.
The network was founded in 1994 in Omaha, Neb., and has more than 1,000 independently owned franchises operating in the United States and overseas.

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using TribLive.com you agree to our Terms of Service.
We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.
While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.
We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers.
We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.
We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.
We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.
We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
