Senior Premier Concierge LLC offers a variety of nonmedical services to seniors in Summit and Medina counties, as well as other areas.
CUYAHOGA FALLS — Senior Premier Concierge (SPC) LLC offers a variety of nonmedical services to senior citizens in Summit and Medina counties, as well as Cuyahoga, Lake, Geauga and Portage counties.
The year-old business, based out of an office at 122 Broad Blvd., Suite 203, is owned by Mary Helen Wright, who serves as CEO and lead concierge, and Greg Perry, who serves as the director of development.
Wright said the business was born out of her experience. She explained she has been an activities coordinator for 20 years and that while she was a stay-at-home mom, she formed Helping Hands to assist friends and neighbors in need in her Silver Lake neighborhood. She added she noticed that there was no agency that offered a coordination of services.
“This business is a 20-year-old idea whose time came last March when everything came into place,” said Wright. “Senior Premier Concierge offers on-demand services to seniors who need help and for active adults who want to use their time to enjoy other activities.”
SPC’s wide variety of services include: light housekeeping and window cleaning; yard work and snow removal; painting; pet grooming and walking; assistance with moving and setting up a new residence, including downsizing, hiring a moving company, packing, unpacking, furniture set up, restocking groceries and coordinating the reconnection of electronics and services; door-to-door transportation services for any activity; mail pickup; entertainment planning and party and event coordination, including gift purchases and wrapping; and personal wellness activities such as scheduling health and medical appointments, prescription pickup and more.
“We take care of many of our clients’ needs,” said Wright.
Wright stated SPC helps clients just discharged from a hospital and needing help, and those who need help because there is no family close by.
“We are a hired family member for those who need someone to trust and rely on,” said SPC General Manager Scott Kravitz.
Wright stated SPC partners with Mobile Meals and the Hunger Center and uses profits to help those in need.
“We had one long-time Mobile Meals client that we helped get furniture for,” said Wright. “When he passed away, we paid for his funeral services because he had no family. We are advocates for services some people cannot afford or can’t purchase, such as companionship.”
