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.
