Meet the Team:
Robert D. Liken CPC, CTS, President Liken Home Care
Graduate of Penn State University, 1970
Business Administration / Accounting Major
Has been in the staffing business since 1970. The original company LIKEN SERVICES, INC. was a general service staffing company specializing in the administrative, clerical, secretarial all office support staff positions (both temporary and direct hire) with 14 branch offices in and around W. PA. As a division of that company, LIKEN HEALTH CARE, INC. was started in 1974 as a medical staffing company that staffed hospitals and other health care facilities. In 1976, we began to “follow the patients home” and at that point we started providing private duty home care. In 1995, the general staffing company was sold to a national, public company, and the health care staffing company was retained. Since 1995, we have concentrated our efforts in the health care marketplace.
Due to the aging baby boomers and the fact people are just living longer, in the late 90’s we refocused the company and today Liken specializes in providing private duty assisted living to those who need help to remain at home. A valuable service that allows an individual to remain independent in their homes for a much longer period of time as well as maintain a high level of quality of life.
Today, we specialize in providing private duty home care (Liken Home Care) to the elderly, the recovering ill, and the disabled in all of Western Pa.
In addition, Robert is CPC (Certified Personnel Consultant) and a CTS (Certified Temporary Staffing Specialist); professional designations of the National Association of Personnel Services.
