Patricia Page, of Pampered Parents LLC in Canandaigua, is the new owner of 24 Hr. Helping Hands in Palmyra, effective April 27.
Previous owner Joy Pechler decided to sell the business after more than seven years. Linda Tome, director, will retire to prepare for a term as American Legion Auxiliary state president.
“The value in our business was created through the support of the community, our 60 customers and our 40 caregivers,” Joy Pechler said. “Linda Tome and Honor Sittig have worked hard to ensure that the business recognizes that customer-employee support and processes are embedded in our underlying culture.”
Pechler said Page’s 11 years of experience with Pampered Parents will allow her to appreciate the homemaker/companion business, understand how to operate it properly and develop its future potential.
Page will keep the company’s name and telephone numbers. Its office will relocate to 313 E. Main St. in Palmyra. There are no plans for major changes in the short term, but Page will talk with current clients and employees to obtain their input.
Joy Pechler, Arnie Pechler and Tome thank their clients, employees and the community for their support. Since its establishment, 24 Hr. Helping Hands provided assistance and companionship to the elderly population, allowed them to stay in their homes longer and remain independent and brought employment to the community. Page and her staff plan to continue the agency’s original mission of being a leader in client dedication, integrity and excellence in nonmedical care.
