Helping Hands Personal Care, LLC. is a leading non-medical personal care company and has been serving Pulaski County since its inception in November of 2010. Life experiences often lead us to our calling. Steward Framer’s father suffered a stroke in 1994 and was briefly placed in a nursing and rehab facility. Once his father returned home, he required ongoing care through a home health agency and personal care company until his passing in 1995. Since then, Stew’s mother suffered from multiple sclerosis and required assistance for a number of years. Her illness required around the clock care and Hospice until her death in March of 2011. In witnessing this process, Stew developed a passion for this field. Throughout his parents’ illnesses, he witnessed the shortcomings of families being unprepared for aging and ill parents. With an entrepreneurial background, honed from a family business, and life experience, it was natural for the desire to open a non-medical personal care company. Helping Hands Personal Care is a company with a mission to improve quality of life for senior citizens. With a growing number of dedicated and top quality caregivers, Helping Hands Personal Care is the company selected by many local health professionals for their patients with personal care needs. Helping Hands Personal Care offers companion, homemaking and personal care services for the ill and elderly, as well as care for private individuals and families who are in need of assistances in their home, nursing and rehab facility or assisted living. We understand the difficulties associated with providing care to keep an elderly loved one safe and secure in their environment. At Helping Hands Personal Care, we understand these challenges and offer a professional care solution.
Steward A. Framer, MBA - Company Owner
Stew was raised in Boston, Massachusetts by entrepreneurial parents. His father, Sam Framer, started a family-run furniture production company and his mother, Dorothy Framer, was the daughter of a tailor. Stew graduated from Northeastern University with a Bachelor’s of Science in Business Administration. He continued his studies at Nova Southeastern University and received a Master’s Degree in Science of Business. Stew has been in home health for over thirty one years and spent several years as vice president of finance and chief financial officer for a home health agency in Somerset, Kentucky. Stew’s background also includes experience in banking management, lending and credit. In 1990, he joined the Kentucky Home Health Association as a member of the financial reimbursement committee. He is the husband of Diana Williamson and father of three. After enduring the difficulties of long distance care of his parents, and lack of customer service from their providers, Stew founded Helping Hands Personal Care. It is his mission for Helping Hands Personal Care to be the premier agency of choice for seniors and their families seeking care and assistance.
