Pleasanton Chamber honors Hired Hands Homecare

Family-owned firm celebrates 20th anniversary

Hired Hands Homecare, a family owned and operated caregiver for the elderly and disabled, celebrated its first anniversary in Pleasanton and 20th year in business last week with a reception sponsored by the Pleasanton Chamber of Commerce.

The caregiver firm's director Erin Winter and her staff hosted the event at its offices at 240 Spring St. in downtown Pleasanton. Mayor Jerry Thorne led the celebration, citing Hired Hands' good work in serving the community.

The Winter family founded the company in 1994 in Mill Valley by Lynn Winter, a Registered Nurse with over 30 years of home care experience and now Hired Hands chief executive. Her purpose was to create an organization that would offer seniors with a broad array of services to help them remain comfortable and independent in their own homes.

Today, the firm, which has operations in Sonoma, Napa and Solano counties as well as in Marin and Pleasanton, provides security and care giving services to anyone who would find their lives and home more manageable with an extra pair of hands, or when being alone is no longer an option.

"Our home support service coordinators are truly skilled in assessing our clients' specific needs," Erin Winter said. "We carefully handpick care providers whose skills match those particular needs. Our entire staff is experienced, qualified and closely managed."

In-home care provided includes: Basic grooming and daily personal hygiene, medication reminders, assistance with exercise programs, accompaniment to medical appointments, trips to the park, reading assistance, cooking basic and specialty meals, shopping and light housekeeping.

"We understand aging can be difficult for both individuals and their families," Winder states in a Website discussion. "For over 20 years, we've provided wide-ranging home care assistance to literally thousands of families. Using our experience and knowledge, we help families meet the challenges of aging comfortably, safely and independently at home."
