The Staff

Symphony Senior Services, Inc. was established in 2013 by Jim Miley and Peter Schwartz due to the challenges they encountered while providing care for their own loved ones. As they navigated through the often confusing selection process, they realized “there has to be a better way” to finding safe, compassionate, comprehensive, and affordable in-home care.  As much as their individual caregiver roles differed, the same industry shortcomings keep popping up along their route. “Just getting simple answers in a timely manner was definitely the exception, not the rule!” 

Taking from their experience in caring for their own family members, and by blending their diverse professional backgrounds, Peter and Jim have created a simplified approach to giving seniors more options when trying create a safe and familiar environment within their own homes.

“We wanted to create a company that is capable of serving senior client’s needs. Assisting clients as their care needs transition, by expanding the service platform to include companion care, skilled nursing services, transitional and post-operative care, memory care, preforming simple chores around their homes, to home modification services that allow our clients to safely live at home as long as they desire.”

Jim Miley – With over 25 years of managerial experience in the financial service industry, Jim has vast experience in recruiting, training, individual development, and team building. Jim knows bringing these skills to the in-home care industry is an important step in providing the superior level of care Symphony is dedicated to deliver.  It starts with seeking out the best caregiver candidates, training them on the newest techniques in caregiving and managing them to the core values of the company.  “Creating a superior client experience doesn’t just happen! It takes a concerted effort to design, articulate, train and deliver a comprehensive strategy that ensures consistent high quality care by all of our caregivers.”

Peter Schwartz – Has over 35 years of residential home construction experience as well as extensive firsthand experience in caregiving. Peter cared for his mother over 10 years, making sure the quality of care provider was ‘second to none’. Peter’s caregiving journey started after his mother slipped and fell. She suffered a broken hip, which started her increased dependence on caregiver assistance. “Falls are typically a families first exposure to caregiving. By far, falls are the number one reason for initial contact with Symphony!” said Peter. He went on to care for his mother and father in-laws, first, providing in-home care, then to finding the finest facilities to assist in round-the-clock care needed as their conditions declined. Peter’s construction background led him to create his 73 point HOME SAFETY INSPECTION. This inspection is specifically designed to meet the ever changing environmental needs of seniors wanting to continue living independently as long as they can safely do so.  This inspection is completed at no charge for every Symphony Senior Home Care client.

We built Symphony Senior Home Care as an independent, local Senior In Home Care health provider specializing in Companion Care, Short and Long Term Care, Post-op Rehabilitation, Skilled Nursing Plans, Memory Care, and Home Modification services. We are not affiliated with any national in-home care chain. This allows us to create care plans designed to fulfill the needs of our clients, and not be confined by franchise guidelines that are set up to fit into as many geographic locations as possible.
