Kebe Broadnax: Seniors Helping Seniors – A Heartwarming Franchise Making a Difference

In this exciting episode of the “Hip Senior Podcast,” we had the pleasure of speaking with Kebe Broadnax, the owner of Seniors Helping Seniors in Hampton Roads, Virginia. Kebe and her partner run a franchise that provides crucial support and care to seniors in their community. Their inspiring story showcases the power of compassion and the impact that seniors can have on each other’s lives. Join us as we explore Kebe’s journey, the importance of in-home care, and the heartwarming stories that have emerged from their incredible work.

The Journey to Seniors Helping Seniors
Kebe’s passion for caregiving was ingrained in her from a young age. With a background in a mega-church’s senior department, she recognized the needs of seniors and the importance of providing them with personalized care. It was during the challenging times of the COVID-19 pandemic that Kebe and her fiance, Benjamin Sawyer, found themselves searching for a way to continue working while giving back to the community. That’s when they discovered Seniors Helping Seniors and embarked on a new chapter as franchise owners in the Hampton Roads area.

Impact of COVID-19 on In-Home Care
The pandemic brought significant changes to the healthcare industry, and in-home care was no exception. Kebe shares that many nurses retired or shifted their focus away from traditional nursing roles. However, this shift opened up opportunities for retired nurses, CNAs, and LPNs to provide in-home care and companionship. Seniors Helping Seniors not only filled the gaps left by facility closures but also introduced a range of support services like medical reminders, nutrition assistance, and transportation to medical appointments. The personalized approach to in-home care has proven to be a lifeline for many seniors, enabling them to receive the help they need while staying in the comfort and familiarity of their own homes.

Heartwarming Stories and Recognition
Throughout their journey with Seniors Helping Seniors, Kebe and Benjamin have encountered numerous heartwarming stories of the impact their franchise has made on seniors’ lives. One standout moment for Kebe was when she was awarded the “Everyday Hero” accolade by a local news station. This recognition came after the heartwarming story of their first client was picked up by the media, highlighting the exceptional care they provided. According to Kebe, it was not only an honor to receive the award but also an opportunity for others to understand the critical role organizations like Seniors Helping Seniors play in supporting seniors who may not have access to family or other support systems.

Kebe Broadnax and her partner are leading the way in the field of senior care through their franchise, Seniors Helping Seniors. Their dedication to providing personalized in-home care has had a profound impact on the Hampton Roads community. Throughout the challenges of the COVID-19 pandemic, Kebe and Benjamin have shown Resilience and compassion, bringing light and support to the lives of seniors in need. The heartwarming stories that have emerged from their work are a testament to the power of seniors helping seniors.
