Senior Helper’s Director of Client Relations & Marketing, Rick received a degree in Computer Networking with the intention of pursuing a technology-based career. While pursuing his degree, Rick began working with a national health care provider where he scheduled in home medical visits and support.
It was in this healthcare role, working with hundreds of clients and medical providers that Rick’s interest began to shift. Rather than mapping computer networks and writing code, Rick found he much preferred client interaction and providing care to those in need. At Senior Helpers, Rick brings a heartfelt compassion and dedication to our clients and their families. Performing initial client assessments, Rick spends time with clients to analyze their needs and family dynamics to craft an individual care plan for each person.
In the coming year, some of Rick’s goals are developing more social activities for our clients, expanding our Senior Helpers staff and exploring new services to meet our client’s diverse needs.
