Meet Doug Peck of Seniors Helping Seniors, ALCA New England Corporate Partner and Committee Member

February 29, 2024   |   Corporate Partner Spotlight

What geographic area do you cover, Doug?

We cover 34 cities and towns in the Greater Boston and MetroWest area.

What services do you provide that would be helpful for care managers and their clients to be aware of?

We provide: companionship; social engagement; respite care; meal preparation; medication reminders; transportation; light housekeeping; errands and shopping; doctor appointments; dementia and Alzheimer’s care; friendly visits and check-ins and overnight and 24-hour care.

Why did you go into this business? What separates you from others in this field?

Seniors Helping Seniors is an independently run, national franchise. I opened a franchise in MetroWest 2011 after 35 years in corporate human resources and having just spent four years as the primary caregiver for my mother. I opened it because I saw the need for in-home care as well as the need for seniors who have retired but still want to do something meaningful and stay active. We are a unique, peer-to-peer business model. All of our employees are W2 and part-time employees. They come with 40-50 years of real-world experience and a genuine desire to help others.

Tell us about your experience as a Committee member of ALCA-NE.

I just joined the Program Committee so I can’t comment on that as yet but I did spend several years on the Policy Committee and learned a great deal about how public policy affects senior care. I also spent six years on the executive committee of Bay Path Elders services, am currently the chair of the Southborough Council on Aging and sit on the board of Better Day Adult Social Day program. I have also been active in the Metrowest Alzheimer’s Partnership and have presented several of their programs.

What do you enjoy in your free time?

In good weather, biking and ocean kayaking. In the winter, hiking and snowshoeing when there is snow! I’m also an avid reader and run the book club at the Southborough Senior Center.
