    MAGGIE DOMINICI


    Regional Manager


    Maggie is the Regional Manager for Home Helpers’ Lehigh Valley office

    Maggie states that her relationship with her grandmother is what put her on the path to work with older adults in the capacity of a social worker. “I was always blessed with remarkable role models, and found several social workers to learn from, and emulate. I cannot imagine doing anything else as a career. My previous work experience was in a long-term care setting, working directly with residents suffering with Alzheimer’s and other forms of dementia, and supporting their families. I later worked with residents living on the independent living side of a senior living community, focused on successfully helping older adults to age in place.

    My work as the Regional Manager at Home Helpers has brought those worlds together. I really enjoy working with our families and helping to continue to provide education and options as they navigate the aging cycle. Every day we are working with the greatest generation of selfless, gifted, talented, dedicated and proud older adults. We have been given a chance to improve their quality of life. That is a gift, and one I want to take very good care of. Our greatest asset internally is the team of dedicated and committed professionals who work at Home Helpers. We are extraordinary in our passion for service excellence and support each other every day.”

    When she is not working, Maggie looks forward to the time she is able to spend with her husband and two grown sons and daughter in law. They adore their Chocolate Labrador and all enjoy family vacations and “Family Days” set aside for adventures, such as biking and kayaking. She enjoys cooking and entertaining, being outside all year, travelling and the beach whenever possible. Maggie volunteers her time to the Children’s Home in Easton for special events and as a partner in the Birthday Cake Brigade, to Arts Quest in Bethlehem for Musikfest and Celtic Fest. She has been a volunteer for 17 years with the Alzheimer’s Association, raising funds and awareness for the National Walk to End Alzheimer’s, speaking at educational programs and community requests, and as a facilitator for caregiver support groups.

Tom’s engineering career in medical device manufacturing had him traveling the world, working with diverse teams who were focused on operational efficiencies and supply chain logistics.

Tom is passionate about assuring quality care is delivered to our clients, as he knows, first hand from his own close family members, the value of a trusted and supportive care provider in the home. Because of these personal experiences, Tom was inspired to start his own Home Helpers agency in 2006, and quickly collaborated with his neighboring franchisees, Frank Esterle and Greg Scheck, to serve the community. The three ultimately decided to combine their service areas in 2008, and serve all of Bucks County, most of Montgomery County and the Lehigh Valley.

    Owner

    Frank is a graduate of Central Bucks West High School, in Doylestown, having grown up in Chalfont, PA. Frank earned his BS in Hospitality Administration from Cornell University, which is where he developed his passion for the service industry. Frank’s early career was in hospitality consulting services, with large international accounting and consulting firms. Frank also gained corporate finance experience during his career with Aramark’s Healthcare Support Services Division in Philadelphia.

    The inspiration for Frank’s involvement in home care services was, sadly, due to the sudden death of his father (at age 60) in 2000. This shocking loss fueled Frank’s desire to make a difference in his community, and he quickly focused on the growing need for in-home care for individuals struggling during a difficult time. In late 2003, Frank found a match in Home Helpers, and in July 2004, partnered with his brother-in-law, Greg Scheck, CPA, to launch their initial agency. Frank and Greg then partnered with Tom Krupp in 2008 as they expanded their service area to include the entirety of Bucks County, most of Montgomery County and the Lehigh Valley.

    Frank has been certified with the Society of Certified Senior Advisors® since 2006. Frank resides with his wife, Donna, and their dog, Tucker in North Wales, PA, where they raised their three sons.
