After nearly two decades in the driver’s education industry helping seniors, Kurt Gray opened Seniors Helping Seniors® franchise, the senior homecare concept that prioritizes hiring mature adults to care for their less active counterparts in in Virginia serving Alexandria, Mount Vernon, Burke, Newington, Falls Church and Annandale.
Gray served as the Director of Driver Education at AAA Club Alliance for 17 years and worked for Driver Training for 19 years after ten years in retail management. He retired early and decided to open his own traffic safety business. That opportunity allowed him to work closely with seniors and their families and realize the 9-5 work life wasn’t for him. Gray began searching for business opportunities to pursue that would allow him to control his own schedule and provide a meaningful service to his community. Now, he’s launching his own Seniors Helping Seniors® business to help fill the gap and bring care and companionship to the Metro Springfield community. The brand stands apart in the in-home care industry by prioritizing the hiring of active seniors to help their less active counterparts.
In addition to providing in-home care for local seniors, Gray decided to open Seniors Helping Seniors® location to provide job opportunities to a sector of the labor market that is typically overlooked: seniors themselves.
“Seniors Helping Seniors® in-home services stuck out to me because of my past work with seniors. The brand’s business model seemed very familiar to me, and it was meaningful work. I wanted to be able to bring my expertise to the table. With my Seniors Helping Seniors® franchise, I can do just that,” Gray said.
