Jeff Salter Bikes Across America to Close the Gap

One of the most respected leaders in the home care community, Jeff Salter is the CEO of Caring Senior Service and a member of the Private Duty Home Care Advisory Council and the Advocacy Council at NAHC.

To celebrate 30 years of serving seniors, Jeff is touring the country on an electric bike to visit all 45 Caring locations and to raise awareness of senior care needs in America.  

This tour, starting on April 1st, 2021, kicks off the 30th anniversary and the Close the Gap in Senior Care movement. The movement’s name is significant, because in cycling, closing the gap between riders is crucial for top performance. Drafting off each other, cyclists get farther and faster as a team. Likewise, when caregivers, community leaders, innovators, and entrepreneurs work together, we can Close the Gap in meeting the needs of America’s seniors. And what better way to kick off the movement than with a bike ride.

Jeff’s electric bike is more than transportation; it is a symbol of assistance, which allows us all achieve things that we didn’t think were possible. For example, seniors can live happy, healthy, and fulfilled lives but they might need a little assistance at times. Caring Senior Service can be that assistance to seniors to empower them to remain independent just like the electric bike is the assistance Jeff needs to enable his journey. 

At each stop along his 9,000-mile journey, Jeff will meet with city leaders, senior citizen activists, business members, and caregivers to bring attention and engagement to senior care.  

Through Jeff’s upcoming bike tour, he hopes to: 

  • Inspire a younger generation to bring new technologies to seniors that can help them age in place 
  • Motivate more people to choose caregiving careers 
  • Prompt entrepreneurs to start companies dedicated to serving seniors.  

By the time Jeff circles back to San Antonio, he will have traveled across the US twice and visited 25 different states. You can follow his inspiring bike journey each step of the way! 

If you have a chance to tune in live or send a message of support via social media, I am sure he would greatly appreciate it.

Private Duty Podcast with Jeff Salter of Caring Senior Service

We encourage you to tune in to this fascinating podcast interview of Jeff Salter, CEO of Caring Senior Service. The interview focuses on non-clinical care of the kind provided by Caring Senior Services and it all just went live Tuesday, February 2.

Jeff tells Stan Massey of Transcend that a lot of education is needed to help the general public know a different kind of support is available – and help the healthcare system advocate for nonclinical support. 

“Ever since I started our company in 1991, Ive been really challenged with defining what home care is and helping people understand that theres this whole different segment that is the non-skilled services or the custodial activities of daily living,” Jeff said. “Things we all take for granted that we just do day in and day out  simple meal preparation can become a challenge, keeping yourself clean, getting a shower, brushing your teeth even can become difficult as you age. And those are all home care things that a caregiver would help provide for an individual who requires that type of assistance.” 

The interview gets into some important details about custodial home care that most people, including referrers, rarely if ever think about.

During this conversation, Jeff, points out three areas where change is necessary to increase the role of nonclinical home care – and what this valuable service can offer in return.
