PHOENIX, Aug. 30, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Serving the Maricopa County Region since 1994 Cypress HomeCare Solutions continues to fulfill their mission to provide quality, individualized and compassionate care to clients so they can age successfully and independently in their own homes. The key to Cypress' success has been directly attributed to the quality of the caregivers that they employ. As a result, Cypress has been selected by AARP Foundation to help fulfill the mission of the Senior Community Services Employment Program (SCSEP).
SCSEP is a nation-wide program administered by the U.S. Department of Labor that has been assisting low-income, unemployed adults 55 years of age and older find work. The program partners with non-profit, public agencies and employers to find the best position for each individual. Participants in the program may also receive on-the-job training for positions that they might not be qualified for but demonstrate an interest in. The program carries out its mission by enabling older adults to expand their knowledge in their given field or break into a new one while earning a modest income.
Cypress' selection for this role will enable mature workers to get the work experience and on-the-job training required for them to build confidence and earn a livable wage. SCSEP will allow Cypress to expand its pool of qualified caregivers so they can continue to provide quality care and resources to their community.
"SCSEP is unique in that it is the only program to focus on building skills and employment opportunities for low-income older workers while also enhancing important community services," said Emily Allen, Senior Vice President AARP Foundation Programs. "We are pleased to be working with Cypress to offer SCSEP services to Phoenix participants."
Bob Roth, Managing Partner of Cypress HomeCare Solutions is grateful to AARP Foundation for providing this service to older adults in his community and for having been selected to participate. "It is both an honor and a privilege to be recognized for our continuing efforts in the advancement in utilizing this valuable source of talent and experience in the older adult community," says Roth.
