About Our Staff
Bob Scott – Owner
I am very fortunate to have had some amazing people in my life. My grandfathers on both sides of my family were huge inspirations to me. They taught me the values that I live by, as well as the values I strive to teach my children every day. In their youth, they both made a huge impact on the world around them. One was a war hero, the other an entertainer, and their legacies live on today.
As strong as they were in their prime, once they entered their twilight years, these proud men needed help for everyday tasks. Growing up, my grandmother and grandfather lived with us. At the time, what I didn’t understand, was that my parents were acting as their caregivers. I didn’t see it as that because throughout the entire process, they were treated with the respect and dignity that they so deserved from their children. It is not easy to ask for help, and it is not easy to help without constant thanks. I never comprehended this until recently, when I took on the same role my parents did before me, and am now caring for my mother and father.
The role of a caregiver is not that of a babysitter, and should not be treated that way. Being a caregiver is exactly what the name implies; giving care, unconditionally, respectfully, and at times, discreetly. It is the understanding that the seniors of today were the pioneers of yesterday, and the inspiration of tomorrow, and they should be treated as such!
As I’ve navigated my own career path, I have held various positions in management and operations. Throughout this journey, I have learned that I truly love working with people, and that you are only as strong as the team you have around you. Through Home Care Assistance Jersey Shore, I have the opportunity to train and work with amazing people, as well as to create a compassionate and unified family of caregivers that is able to provide a network of support for clients and families when they need it most.
As the co-owner and operator of Home Care Assistance Jersey Shore, I have made it my mission to allow the proud and strong-minded seniors of today to spend the rest of their years at home, receiving enrichment through our Balanced Care Program, all the while remembering that these individuals were the foundation and inspiration for those of us that are now called upon to make sure that our parents get the same quality of love and care in their senior years that they deserve.
