At Seniors Helping Seniors® Scottsdale, we have a passion for meeting the needs of seniors in a way that provides both dignity and a sense of camaraderie. Our owners, Andy & Amy Lask, take a great sense of pride serving seniors in Scottsdale, Fountain Hills, and the surrounding Phoenix communities.
Andy and Amy have shared experiences caring for their parents. They have managed the medical and home care decisions during serious illnesses for their loved ones.
While in college, Amy became acutely aware of the challenges involved in caring for a loved one while witnessing her mother's courageous battle with cancer. Twenty years ago, she donated a kidney to her father, who suffered from kidney disease and is currently enjoying an active and healthy lifestyle.
Andy also understands firsthand the challenges a serious illness can have on a family and the positive impact a loving and compassionate caregiver who has shared life experiences can have on a recipient's health and their family's peace of mind.
Andy is a former CPA and attorney with a degree in Accounting from Indiana University and a law degree from Washington University in St. Louis. He has enjoyed a successful career as an attorney, CPA, and owner and operator of several businesses.
Amy has a degree from Arizona State University in political science and has a rewarding career working for the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum.
Andy and Amy Lask have spent the past 26 years of their marriage raising their two daughters while living in Westchester County, New York, and the northern suburbs of Chicago before making Scottsdale their home.
