New business provides in-home care

Posted: Wednesday, October 24, 2012 8:02 pm

As the senior population is beginning to create a tremendous social and economic impact throughout Tennessee, new business owners Steve and Donna Smith are excited about their senior care business, which opened for business in January.  In Tennessee alone, the senior population is projected to double in the next 20 years and Touching Hearts will help satisfy the area’s need for in-home services.
Touching Hearts at Home is a local non-medical home care agency that provides the type of service that helps seniors who desire to stay home, but need some assistance to do so.  Smiths use the philosophy that they wouldn’t place a caregiver in someone’s home that they wouldn’t place in their own parent’s home and offer a very affordable service.  In many cases, home care is all that’s needed to keep a senior happy and at home.
For as little as a few hours per week to as many as 24-hours a day, including weekends and holidays, Touching Hearts offers a variety of personalized and flexible home care services. Services offered include companionship, light housekeeping, meal preparation, medication reminders, transportation, laundry, and assistance with bathing, grooming and mobility. Touching Hearts at Home is licensed by the State, and all Caregivers are screened, trained, bonded and insured. In addition, Touching Hearts at Home provides special rates to Veterans, as well as assistance with funding access.
Renae Olafson, Founder of Touching Hearts at Home’s franchise system, was raised in West Central MN with eight (8) siblings and founded the company based on the ideals and caring nature of her parents, Walter and Melvina Peterson.  She states, “Steve and Donna have set the foundation for their business’s success by completing our Touching Hearts Training Academy.  They are committed to providing the finest non-medical homecare in West Tennessee using our proven and successful operating system, their business acumen and a passion for helping others.”
Touching Hearts at Home is centrally located in the service area that covers much of West Tennessee and is located at 1110 South Main Street in Milan, Tn.  For information with regard to Touching Hearts at Home services or employment opportunities, call 731-613-2526, or email our office at dsmith@touchinghearts.com, or visit our website at www.touchingheartswesttn.com.
