Renae Olafson has owned, operated and been involved with in-home senior care businesses since 1996. Her business, management and interpersonal skills are as strong as her passion for helping the elderly and people with disabilities lead full and independent lives.
Olafson has innate business sense and savvy, having grown up in the family that founded Merry Maids and ServiceMaster Caring Companions. Prior to her work in elderly home care, she both owned and operated two Merry Maids franchises for nearly 10 years. She knows franchising, and dedicates herself to sharing her knowledge and experience with franchise owners through training and support, which they find key to their on-going success.
Renae is an entrepreneur who has successfully bought, operated and sold businesses. She is also a daughter who helped care for her mother and father prior to their passing with the same love and respect that she shows her clients. She believes that helping people is a privilege and she is grateful for the opportunity to make her calling her career.
We start with an in-home consultation which is free of charge. Meeting person-to-person is the best way to talk about service options and design a care program together. You will be asked about your preferences regarding the type of person you prefer to provide service in your home. Your Touching Hearts at Home representative will carefully select a caregiver best prepared to meet your needs.
Services can be provided from just a few hours up to 24 hours, 7 days-a-week, including weekends and holidays.
