Agency expands into Juniata County
From staff reports
MCALISTERVILLE — Almond Tree Senior Solutions LLC is pleased to announce the opening of their new office in Juniata County.
The office is located at 30968 Route 35 Nort, next to Jennifer Smith Beauty Salon and Frymoyer Storage.
Almond Tree Senior Solutions is a home care agency serving the elderly in Snyder, Union, Northumberland and Juniata counties. With hopes of serving more folks in Juniata and Mifflin counties, company owner Wendy Cecco expanded services to serve those in this area who need care at home, allowing them to stay in their home instead of being placed in a nursing facility.
Almond Tree Senior Solutions is a home care agency, providing in home non-medical care to the elderly, providing services from a few hours a week to 24-hour care. Kristen Norton, director of home care, says that the level of service provided by her agency sets them apart from many others in the area.
“When we say we will provide services, you can count on us to do exactly that,” she said. “Our caregivers are expected to cover their shifts when scheduled. If a caregiver cannot make it to a shift, the agency assures that someone else will be there to provide care. We do not let people alone and without the proper care.
“And each client has an individual care plan, created especially for their individual needs,” she added.
Norton said Almond Tree hopes to be able to attract local caregivers and to serve many of the elderly who may need services in Juniata and Mifflin counties.
“This office will allow us to better serve our employees who live in the area and to avoid having them travel to the main office which is located in Selinsgrove,” she said.
The McAlisterville office is open Monday through Friday from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. The phone number is (717) 539-9044. Caregiver applicants can apply in person or send a resume to this office. An application can also be found online at www.AlmondTreeSeniorSolutions.com. Interviews and training will be conducted on-site, assuring that the employees have a convenient place to come to for all their employment needs.
Norton also said that by having local caregivers, the agency can better assure quality and consistent care for the clients.
Almond Tree Senior Solutions LLC has been in operation for seven years. The main office is located at 195 Airport Road, Selinsgrove. In addition to home care, they also provide transportation services to those needing wheelchair or stretcher services.
