We are a true family that cares for you

Seniors In Place was created as a result of our family’s personal struggle finding care for our Grandmother and Mom. We know what it feels like not to be able to care for a family member all of the time. We also discovered peace of mind knowing that our loved one was receiving the care she needed, without having to make a long term commitment.

Seniors In Place is a cost effective option that enables your loved ones to age safely in the comfort of wherever they call home.

Richard, together with his wife, Susan, sons Adam and Chad, and daughter Mia, have built a business that was born from integrity, honesty and love and has grown to help thousands of people in New Jersey live better, safer and more independent lives since 2001. We are not a franchise. We are a family. Whether you need a minimal amount of assistance, or personal care with nurse oversight, we will help.
