ComForcare of Solon helps families who are struggling to balance work, life, and home care demands for their aging loved ones.
Home care services continue to see a rise in demand as more and more seniors are opting to spend their golden years surrounded by the comfort and familiarity of home. ComForcare of Solon was founded in 2011 by Maria Dubnicka with the goal of serving seniors and their families throughout the community.
Turning a Challenge into Opportunity
When the recession hit, Maria’s job as a unit manager insurance underwriter was eliminated and she found herself looking to the future and a possible career change. Maria had worked for Allstate insurance for eleven years, but recognized her opportunity to move her career in a new direction. She had witnessed the challenges families face with aging loved ones first hand with her own parents and in-laws. Aware of the difficulty families have managing health care services and maintaining a degree of independence and dignity, Maria sought to provide dependable non-medical services for those around her. She was drawn to ComForcare home care franchising because of its award winning service standards.
Dubnicak purchased Solon’s ComForcare franchise in September of 2011, and the company now serves the surrounding communities of Beachwood, Aurora, Macedonia, Chagrin Falls, Maple Heights, and Mayfield Heights.
“As the first generation of Baby Boomers begin to turn 65, I anticipate tremendous growth for ComForcare and related home care services throughout the next twenty years,” says Maria.
According to the U.S. Census Bureau, there are 77 million people in the U.S. who were born between 1946 and 1964 who are about to enter their retirement years.
“Research shows that most older adults would choose to remain in their home as long as possible,” shares Maria. “Combined with the fact that many families have been affected by the recession, ComForcare offers an affordable individualized alternative to an assisted living center or long-term care facility.”
Maria also noted the success of her home care franchise comes from the growth of the “sandwich” generation which is the group of American adults finding themselves responsible for caring for their children and parents. ComForcare provides families support and peace of mind by filling the gap and offering dependable home care services on a part-time or full-time basis.
Home Care Services from ComForcare of Solon
ComForcare’s services include assistance with personal care and hygiene, homemaking assistance, transportation, companionship and much more all in the comfort and safety of the client’s own home. A trained home care professional, usually a registered nurse, schedules a visit to evaluate the client’s individual needs, whether it includes temporary
assistance or long-term care; physicians and family members are consulted about the assessment. The company can also provide 24-hour, live-in care and full-time Alzheimer’s care or dementia care.
Dubnicka is no stranger to hard work and the pursuit of the “American Dream.” She is a first-generation American and the first in her family to attend college, which she did at John Carroll University. Her parents came to the United States from Croatia when she was an infant and encouraged her entrepreneurial spirit. She predicts continued success and growth for her company and looks forward to making a positive contribution in the community.
For those interested in making a difference in their community, ComForcare still has home care franchise territories available throughout the United States, Canada, and the United Kingdom.
