A unique experience in the hospital led to the formation of Home With You Senior Care. While volunteering at a local hospital, Angela Propst, founder of Home With You, noticed that most volunteers wanted to work with infants in the neonatal unit, so she asked the hospital staff to send her where she was needed most. She was placed in the cardiac care unit, and was stunned by their appreciation for those little things we take for granted (opening drink containers, buttering bread, etc.). This experience gave her tremendous empathy and led her to open Home With You Senior Care in 2005 as a way to ensure that seniors within her community received the at-home assistance, companionship, and community connection they need to continue to lead healthy and happy lives.
Our mission is to help older adults live confidently and age with grace and dignity in their own homes. We choose to make a positive difference in the lives of our clients and their families. The Home With You team treats every contact as a friend, every client as family, and performs every task with honor, always providing services with:

For Robin, her commitment to care began early, during her first job as a young teen in a nursing home. This experience launched her into a career in the industry and today she has more than 35 years of experience in healthcare management, marketing and staffing.

Professional Caregiver Training Means Enhanced Professional Care Training
When it comes to hiring and training in-home caregivers and nurses, our standards couldn’t be higher. At Home With You Senior Care, we take proactive steps to ensure our team is extensively trained and certified, so they feel confident in their roles and provide the highest quality care. While most home care agencies provide an average of 10 hours of general training, we provide over 120 hours of highly specialized in home caregiver training.
To fulfill this commitment, we have partnered with the Institute for Professional Care Education (now Relias Learning), a nationally renowned training and certification agency for caregiving professionals, to offer custom training programs to all our caregivers.
Our custom program provides three levels of training for our care staff:
- Level 1, “Certified Caregiver”, incorporates a variety of caregiver training tools to ensure skills stay sharp.
- Level 2, “Specialized Caregiver”, incorporates training in Alzheimer’s disease, diabetes, and end of life care.
- Level 3, “Master Caregiver”, incorporates training in Parkinson’s disease, first aid, leadership, and more.
