Timesavers Caregiving and Concierge was created by two friends in Bowling Green who were navigating care for their own aging parents. That search led to a business that has expanded to the Owensboro area, operating as a personal services agency with a focus on flexible and personalized care from 1 to 24 hours at a time.
“The Owensboro community, with its strong family roots, was a perfect fit for a second Timesavers office location,” said Tina Wright, client care coordinator. “The demographics here supported the need to serve aging seniors who want to stay independent at home for as long as possible.”
Timesavers is located in downtown Owensboro at 101 East 2nd Street. The business has continued to grow since opening in 2017.
Wright said the Owensboro location had grown significantly through word-of-mouth referrals, calling the most rewarding part of the job “hearing clients tell how much they appreciate the help, and watching caregivers become like family to them.”
Joining the Greater Owensboro Chamber of Commerce gave Timesavers the ability to plug into the Owensboro community, Wright said. Outreach and support of other senior-focused organizations has been a huge part of Timesavers’ mission, she added.
“We volunteer locally with the Walk to End Alzheimer’s, Hospice Spring Fling, and other nonprofits that help support families navigating age issues,” she said. “We facilitate two support groups per month for caregivers and family members. These are open to all and are currently held on Zoom.”
As for upcoming projects and events, Wright said she was excited to announce a new program — Grace at Home — which will operate as a service-based, check-in approach to support safely aging at whichever location a senior calls “home.”
“When a loved one is not quite in need of traditional caregiving but could benefit from a check-in, Grace at Home is a great ‘first step’ tool,” Wright said, adding that the program would allow assistants to visit clients to help with their daily routines, take them on outings and provide wellness checks.
The Grace at Home program was designed to give seniors the care they need while retaining their independence at the same time.
Wright expressed gratitude to the Owensboro Chamber and the encouragement she’d received from the community over the last three years.
“We have a great team of individuals who understand that caregiving is a calling and a profession,” she said. “We feel blessed to be here to help families and build relationships.”
