Sweet Home Services Finds a Home in the Lakewood Industrial Park
Sweet Home Services (SHS), a company that provides Senior companionship, health care services, services for children and adults with disabilities, and specialty assistance, such as 24-hour live-in help, transportation and shopping, among other services, has opened its offices in the Lakewood Industrial Park, 195 Lehigh Ave, Unit 12.
Jhoane’ Sherard, the owner and a certified assisted living administrator (CALA) with more than 20 years’ experience in the health care field, established Sweet Home Services in 2007 as a solution to allow clients to stay at home and age in place in the comfort of their own environment. The company employees 20 people and is planning to become a UEZ (Urban Enterprise Zone) business.
Prior to starting SHS, Sherard worked at Bartley Healthcare, Jackson, as the director of human resources. She also worked for Sunrise Senior Living, Brick, as an assisted living coordinator, and Marriott Senior Living, Lakewood, as an assistant restaurant manager.
Sherard attended Ocean County College (OCC) for accounting. She earned her certification in Human Resource Management at OCC, and a diploma in Computer Operations and Programming from Brick Computer Science Institute, Brick.
Sherard holds licenses as a NJ State Certified Food Service Manager and an Assisted Living Administrator. The New Jersey Department of Consumer Affairs licensed SHS as a Health Care Service Firm. She is also a licensed legal insurance representative for Legal Shield.
Sherard is an active community volunteer. In 2011-12, she volunteered in the Department of Patient Satisfaction at Kimball Medical Center, Lakewood. She serves as the director of Community Outreach, a volunteer position for Church of The Harvest Ministries, Toms River. This Thanksgiving, SHS volunteers fed 100 homeless people. Volunteers assisted in cooking the food, boxed up donated clothing and delivered it to those in need.
Sherard said, “We continued our efforts for Christmas, providing clothing and toys to families in need. Our goal is to make a difference in the lives of those who live in the Ocean County area. We intend to grow our business right here in Lakewood, being a part of positive and productive change.”
Sherard, who grew up in Lakewood, said, “We also sell quality, stylish and affordable scrubs in our Lakewood office. We are constantly ensuring that our standards accommodate the health and well-being of every individual we provide care for.”
