The McGlumphy Brothers, Jim, Jerry and Joe, owners and operators of Seniors Helping Seniors in-home services throughout the Upper Ohio Valley come to this work with a deep dedication to provide loving and caring services to seniors in their community. Their parents served as their inspiration to start Seniors Helping Seniors in-home services. “Our parents taught us honesty, trust, integrity, a strong work ethic, and the importance of unconditional love,” shares Jim. “These values are the backbone of Seniors Helping Seniors in-home services.”
Seniors Helping Seniors in-home services matches seniors who want to help with seniors who need a little help. This peer-to-peer assistance allows seniors in need to receive care from someone they can trust and relate to. Seniors offering help, often form deep relationships with their fellow seniors, and are able to stay active in the community.
Jim, Jerry and Joe are fortunate enough to live near their mother, Anna Marie, who celebrated her 87th birthday in September. Due to some health issues, she needs some assistance, which they and their sisters, Judy Daugherty and Jody Miller, are able to give her. Through this experience, they realized the need for services for other seniors in their Ohio and West Virginia communities. “We are inspired by our own family to help other families receive the loving, compassionate and quality care they deserve,” shares Jerry.
The senior providers who work with Jim, Jerry and Joe offer many services including meal preparation, light housework and repairs, transportation, and most importantly, companionship.
The McGlumphy Brothers bring diverse backgrounds to Seniors Helping Seniors in-home services. They were all born and raised in the Upper Ohio Valley and each made their way back to settle and raise our families in the Wheeling area. Each is extremely active in their churches and community.
