July 12, 2019. Newton, MA. Mark Friedman, owner of Senior Helpers Boston and South Shore, has announced the acquisition of Shipyard Home Health Care of Hingham, MA.
Shipyard, a private duty home care agency, has been owned and operated by Lauren Gregory since 2014 and has provided companionship and non-medical support services to seniors on the South Shore.
Friedman’s two Senior Helpers offices currently serve 75 communities in the Metro-Boston, Metro-West and South Shore areas. Friedman cites, “Lauren comes from a PT background and understands the importance of having a clinical, case-driven philosophy of care; which also translates to the need for rigorously trained HHA and CNA caregivers, and customized client-centric care plans. Merging her pool of caregivers brings added depth of resources to us on the South Shore.”
“As healthcare has become more complex, so has the ability of seniors to age in place,” Friedman contends, “we value our relationships with aging life care experts, social workers, legal and other referring professionals because they too bring a lot of perspective to the journey of aging as we now see it.”
