  • August: The WHY Behind the Work

    August 29, 2022

    The summer of 2022 is winding down with the beginning of the school year for our kids, Benson and Seneca. Benson is continuing his Spanish Language Immersion Program as a 2nd grader and his ability to speak Español is impressive (in the rare moments he decides to speak it in front of us). Seneca is now officially a Pre-K girl and she is excited  to see her friends again. 

  • June & July: The WHY Behind the Work

    July 7, 2022

    Our Senior Helpers Poway Office is almost ready for business!  It has been an amazing journey to get to this point.  Our overhead sign is up and lit, and our tenant improvements (flooring and paint) are receiving their finishing touches, and we just hired a North County Recruiter! 

  • May: The WHY Behind the Work

    May 17, 2022

    This month, I would like to showcase the correspondence of one of our most gifted Caregivers.  Ahmed is a rare breed of human:  compassionate, driven, healing.  He treats his clients with such dignity and honor that his name at the office has become synonymous with respect.  His clients adore him and so does our staff.  Keep up the incredible work, Ahmed!

  • April: The WHY Behind the Work

    April 28, 2022

    Cassia, Mo and I recently registered for the Senior Helpers Annual Conference in September, and I couldn’t be more excited by our keynote speaker – Rick Rigsby PhD.  Besides being an incredible motivational speaker and author, Rigsby’s life testimony is heartwarming and triumphant.  My favorite quote from a very inspirational and very viral college graduation speech he gave is this:

  • March: The WHY Behind the Work

    March 28, 2022

    When Cassia, Maureen, and I started Senior Helpers East San Diego, we were committed above all else to growth.  We knew that with our experience in healthcare and marketing, that we could make a difference in our Senior community.  So much so that our unofficial motto was Always Commit to Yes.  Looking back over the past year, I believe that this helped grow our business and reputation throughout the community.  Clients know that we offer a superior service and even if our home care agency isn’t what they need, they understand that we will act as their fiduciary to point them in the right direction.

  • February: The WHY Behind the Work

    February 28, 2022

    February is a busy time of year here at Senior Helpers!  Traditionally, February and March see an increase in Seniors and their families asking for help.  The running hypothesis as to why this is the case is because families over the Holiday Season realize that their loved one need a little more help around the house.  So, our office is busy at work fielding inquiries, visiting Seniors and their families, and setting up care with our quality team of Caregivers. 

  • January: The WHY Behind the Work

    January 21, 2022

    There is no escaping COVID in the New Year.  Our office has dealt with a spike in sick calls from our Caregivers and clients.  On average, 20% of our Caregivers has been out from COVID since late December.  Several of our clients have also paused care due to getting sick themselves. 

  • December: The WHY Behind the Work

    December 20, 2021

    This will be my 44th Christmas and likely to be most memorable. My wife’s family is travelling in from Reno and Texas.  For the first time since I began private practice, I will be taking time off from work without any sense of guilt towards my partners, who would take the extra burden of Holiday call.

  • November: The WHY Behind the Work

    November 24, 2021

    Benson is six years old and what my in-laws would call a “typical boy.”  I would call him a particularly typical boy:  He is physical (good and bad), strong willed (good and bad), loves ninjas and dinosaurs (all good there), and is always analyzing and testing his environment (good and bad).  He is a velociraptor in Jurassic Park – always testing the fences.  Not to say these are gender specific behaviors (I won’t go there), but when you contrast him with my daughter (pink unicorns and princess tea parties), his boyishness is undeniable.

  • October: The WHY Behind the Work

    October 27, 2021

    It was about three years ago when I decided my life needed to change.  As an East County anesthesiologist taking cardiac and obstetrics call several times a week for the better part of 13 years, I came across a priority shift -- I needed to be a present father.  My son was entering preschool and my daughter was just a newborn.  I wanted to be present as they grew up and realized that the long hours spent at the hospital was time spent away from them and my wife.  So, against the advice of friends, colleagues, and most internet searches, I treaded my path towards owning a business with my wife, Cassia and friend, Maureen.
