Peoria, AZ (PRWEB) December 12, 2013
This combined with the existing territory covering Peoria and Glendale, Arizona puts her Visiting Angels franchises into sixteen zip codes and makes available affordable in home senior care services services to over 500,000 residents.
Simpson, who purchased her first Visiting Angels franchise at the the age of fifty nine is gratified at the growth she has seen. “God has blessed us greatly,” Simpson states “and we are honored that families allow us to take care of their loved ones”.
Now at 65 when some are looking at easing into the retirement years, Simpson is eager to take on the challenge of an expanding business. Simpson and her husband Michael have both had recent battles with cancer but she calls that just a speed bump. “When you have clients who depend on you and you have over fifty caregivers who are counting on a paycheck; you just can't sit on the couch and feel sorry for yourself, you have to keep moving”, she says.
When a family first contacts her requesting information she spends most of the time listening. “Many times it is the family caregiver who calls and they are completely burned out,” she says, “sometimes they are part of the 'sandwich generation' where they have children at home and are also taking care of an aging parent. I ask a lot of questions trying to learn what is going on and how possibly we can help. More times then not, within a minute or so that person is crying on the phone. They are emotionally raw, burned out and don't know where to turn.” Elder care, taking care of a family plus having a full time job can take its toll. Simpson continues, “There are times when our services are not what they need. But I do realize that they still need help and I do not get off the phone until I can point them to someone or an agency that can provide what they need. That's the business I am in...helping people.”
