At Seniors Helping Seniors® Shenango Valley, we have a passion for meeting the needs of seniors in a way that provides both dignity and a sense of camaraderie. Our owner(s) Rob and Elizabeth McGoff firmly believe we can do that through serving seniors in our community, which includes: the counties of Mercer, Lawrence, Crawford, and surrounding areas.
Robert and Elizabeth McGoff are owners among the Seniors Helping Seniors® franchise, providing care throughout Mercer, Lawrence, and Crawford Counties. Seniors Helping Seniors® in-home services matches like-minded caregivers, who intimately understand the aging process, with individuals in need of assistance in order to continue living independently. Care receivers get the benefit of a companion that is qualified to care for them and carefully chosen based on their compatibility. Caregivers not only have a reason to stay active, but also get paid while building friendships.
“Not everyone is fortunate enough to have a large family that lives down the street. The population in our area is decreasing, but the senior population is increasing. Younger families are moving away for jobs, which creates a real need for this kind of compassionate care, allowing those that need a little extra help to receive it in the comfort of their own homes as long as possible,” said Robert, Seniors Helping Seniors® Shenango Valley Owner.
Robert and Elizabeth, currently living in the house that Elizabeth’s grandparents lived in, were searching for a fulfilling career path. Elizabeth’s own experience caring for her grandfather after her grandmother’s passing, as well as Robert’s close relationship to his grandparents, including a Nazi Concentration Camp survivor and 20 year Alzheimer patient, showed them both the value in the services provided by caregivers.
“We wanted a business where we would be able to make a livelihood while doing something fulfilling, something that our children could look up to, something that would make a difference in our lives and the lives of others,” said Elizabeth, Seniors Helping Seniors® Shenango Valley Owner. Elizabeth and Robert have 3 daughters, Isabella, Gabriella, and Mirabella.
Robert and Elizabeth believe in giving back to the community. Robert serves on the Meals on Wheels board of directors and is also a volunteer driver. He is also on the Mercer County Human services council. Elizabeth serves on the Glamorous Gutless Girls board of directors which is a local non-profit for girls with Inflammatory bowel disease.
