Home Care is Not a Career, It’s a Calling
We know your first priority when choosing a home care provider is finding someone you can trust and rely on… someone who will care for your loved one as you would, and as we would our own. We’ve been where you are, and this is one of the main reasons we chose to be in this business.
Michael R. Senchak
Michael graduated with a Business Administration degree from Youngstown State University. While at YSU, Michael was awarded the Senior Leadership Award in Management.
Michael grew up watching his father work in various healthcare settings, teaching him that people rely on providers and agencies that can provide quality care and empathetic understanding. Working in a business with his father has always been a dream of Michael’s. Personally, he has seen the need for quality in-home caregivers grow within his family in the past couple of years, sparking his interest in the non-medical home care industry.
Outside of work, you can often find Michael enjoying the great outdoors with his wife Kelley and dogs Bruno, Cowboy and Dingo. He enjoys fishing, hunting, and being outdoors. Michael is also very active in his local church.
