Doug owned the Seniors Helping Seniors franchise in the Metrowest area since 2011. Prior to joining Seniors Helping Seniors Metrowest, Doug had a 30 year career as a senior manager in Human Resources. He saw a need for this service first hand as he was the primary caregiver for his mother for over four years after his father passed. It also became evident that there were many seniors like himself who were not ready to slow down or retire but meaningful jobs for seniors are hard to come by. Being able to provide jobs that allow seniors to give back and make a difference has been a driving force for him. He always took a very hands-on approach to the business and was an active caregiver himself for many of his clients.
A 40 year resident in the Southborough community, Doug has a strong dedication to the surrounding communities and to seniors. He is Certified Senior Advisor and a Certified Dementia Practitioner. He currently sits on the board for BayPath Elder Services, the Southborough Council on Aging and the Marlborough Chamber of Commerce. Additionally, he has been active in the Metrowest Alzheimer’s Partnership, the Elder Community Collaborative serving the Marlborough and Hudson areas and the Friends of the Marlborough Seniors.
Additionally, he has given many presentation on caregiving and aging at home to Rotary Clubs, Libraries and area churches.
Besides his new role in the Boston/Metrowest franchise, Doug has started a nonprofit called Still Here For a Reason. It will focus on helping seniors answer the question: How can I still feel useful as I age?
