PITTSBURGH – Superior Home Care, one of the most progressive providers of home health and home care services in the Pittsburgh area, has recently moved its administrative office and training center to 500 N. Lewis Run Road, Suite 214, Pittsburgh, Pa.

According to Kimberly L. Pirilla-Scalise, executive director of Superior Home Care, the new location will enable the organization to better serve its expanding caregiving team and puts it within closer proximity to its growing base of clients in the South Hills and Mon Valley areas.

“We chose to relocate to our new office in Pleasant Hills because it was designed specifically for how our team works,” she said. “It provides us with one contiguous office space that seamlessly blends our administrative and training operations. In addition, our new office is centrally located so we can better serve our clients and their families throughout the greater Pittsburgh area.”

In conjunction with the move, Superior Home Care has formed a strategic alliance with Southwestern Healthcare Center, a South Hills-based provider that offers a skilled nursing center, assisted living center and independent/personal care supported apartment complex.

“This partnership will open up greater training and work opportunities for all of our staff,” said Scalise. “They will be able to get experience performing hands-on care under supervision. Staff can work in any of these settings, as much or as little as we feel appropriate, depending on their skill proficiency. That brings us closer to our goal of offering stable and consistent full-time work to our employees.”

Formed in 2002, Superior Home Care now encompasses two separate companies. Superior at Home offers private duty care, such as concierge services, care coordination, chore, community integration/assistance, homemaking, companionship, personal care and respite care. Superior Home Health provides Medicare-certified skilled care, including medication management/oversight, chronic disease management, care coordination, nursing (RN and LPN), physical therapy, occupational therapy, speech therapy, social work and home health aides.

“Our goal is to give everyone an equal opportunity to live at home, regardless of their needs, strengths or weaknesses.”

“We strive to help people continue living at home while enjoying the highest quality of life,” said Scalise. “Our goal is to give everyone an equal opportunity to live at home, regardless of their needs, strengths or weaknesses.”

Scalise added that Superior Home Care is committed to helping families become more effective caregivers for their loved ones.

“The long-term future of our health-care system will depend on informal caregivers,” she said. “However, many families are unsure of what they need to do to step into this role. As a community partner, Superior provides caregiving workshops for families and our new office will give us the opportunity to offer many of these seminars onsite.”
