Meet the Nature Coast Office

More than 90% of seniors want to age in their own home with dignity but getting the right type of care can seem daunting. At Senior Helpers Nature Coast — Hernando, Pasco and Citrus Counties we believe that getting the best care for your loved ones should not be complicated. Glen and Michelle Scharfeld opened the Senior Helpers Spring Hill office because of their passion for helping others and their interest in the growing need for in-home care services. Glen and Michelle are committed to delivering the best possible in-home care to seniors in the Nature Coast — Hernando, Pasco and Citrus Counties community.

We take in-home care seriously and make it a priority to provide the highest level of client service possible. Over the years we have built an exceptional team of care professionals, each committed to remaining at the forefront of the in-home care industry through our proprietary ongoing training and education programs.

Our History

Our History

Glen and Michelle owners of Senior Helpers of Spring Hill, like every other owner, are fully-committed to the original goal of providing dependable and affordable in-home care with well-trained caregivers. Nothing is more important to us than being the best available resource for seniors and families in our community.  

The Scharfelds were drawn to Senior Helpers because of Glen’s years of direct experiences while in law enforcement. He saw many seniors in need of companion and personal care services, within their homes and communities. Michelle was also moved to join Senior Helpers after she experienced the challenges of assisting her family in caring for her grandfather, who had Alzheimer’s disease, until he passed. The Scharfeld’s truly empathize with families who are experiencing similar challenges with a loved one.

We have been lucky to serve hundreds of seniors in our community over the years, and we are committed to continuing to provide uncompromising levels of care to all our families.

Senior Helpers works hard to educate the public in Dementia and Parkinson’s awareness.  Senior Helpers provides education to the public, through community Support groups and within our in-house, training centers we invite the public to attend Alzheimer education via the Senior Gems program .  Virtual Dementia Tours are scheduled and open to the public, via a mobile tour bus and we are partnered with the not for profit, Second Wind Dreams .  Second Wind Dreams is an important organization that provides dreams to Seniors to help enhance their quality of life.  PK Beville is the founder of the Virtual Dementia Tour and Second Wind Dreams.

Glen and Michelle Scharfeld - Owners

Owners Glen and Michelle Scharfeld, run a family-friendly and responsible business. They are both personally involved in all aspects of the company. This is truly a family-run company.

Glen and Michelle decided to pursue providing home care to seniors after Glen’s years of direct experiences with seniors in need of companion and personal care services, within their homes and communities.

Glen served as a law enforcement officer for over 20 years conducting and overseeing multiple criminal investigations, with seniors being the victim. Glen spent several years of his law enforcement career serving as a Community Resource Deputy, working closely with seniors and other members of the community, providing solutions to ongoing problems within neighborhoods. The overall purpose was to ensure a better quality of life for residents in communities. Over the course of his law enforcement career, Glen was the recipient of multiple commendations and awards for his excellent service to the public. He also holds Bachelor and Master degrees in Human Resources Administration and Management.

Michelle possesses a strong legal background within both, public and private sectors with several years of experience in Family Law, as well as Trust and Probate Law.

Michelle, unfortunately, experienced first-hand the challenges of assisting her family in caring for her grandfather, who had Alzheimer’s disease, until he passed. The Scharfeld’s truly empathize with families who are experiencing similar challenges with a loved one.

Glen and Michelle both feel honored to have the opportunity to continue to serve and protect, specifically within the senior community. They make every effort to make a difference in the lives of the families they provide services for.

Our Goal is to enable your loved one to remain independent in their home, safely and efficiently, for as long as they would like to remain there. Our team is very flexible and will be happy to discuss your personal needs for In-Home Care.

My mom and I used their services a few years ago for my dad when we lived in spring hill. My dad who had numerous medical issues and from being in the hospital for so long could barely walk, couldn't hold a spoon to feed himself or able to use the bathroom. We had one exceptional Male nurse who unfortunately I cannot remember his name. He was always on time, helped feed and bathe my father, helped change the sheets and do the laundry for my mom who was beyond stressed with everything that my dad was going through. He gave my mom a sense of relaxation, calm and help that she so desperately needed, for that I am forever grateful. He was patient with my father as he was irritable often bc of his condition but this man made everyone feel comfortable and always very friendly and upbeat. The man who came to our house initially to discuss the process of using this service was also a God sent. He explained the services his company offered, pricing, billing and was extremely informative about how the VA could also assist with payment, although we chose to pay out of pocket. The months we used senior helpers were the best care my dad received which eventually led to him being able to walk again, gain arm and hand strength again and eventually be able to bathe and take care of himself without assistance. We highly recommend this company to anyone and if ever needed I would use them in a heartbeat. 5 stars does and injustice your company deserves 1000 stars!!
