Max Rheinberger established Senior Friend Home Care in 1981 to assist people who require support with daily living tasks and home healthcare. Max acquired polio in the 1950s, which resulted in him becoming a quadriplegic. Despite this, he was a very active member of the community in Duluth, MN.
Our home healthcare service acquired its Medicare certification in the 1980s and has enjoyed steady growth throughout the years. We’ve always felt compelled to provide quality care to help our patients maintain independence and find solutions to living at home with a disability. We strive to continually enhance employee education to ensure the best of care.
Max died in 2004 but entrusted his legacy of compassionate professional care to his business partner, Karen Stocke. In 2018, she sold the Senior Friend Home Care to Rolen Cares, LLC.
Sampson and Malune Rolen formed Rolen Cares, LLC in 2015. Their son Brandon was diagnosed with SMA in 2003 and required 24/7 care. While doctors did not expect him to live past age two, he recently celebrated his 18th birthday.
In 2018, Rolen Enterprises, LLC took ownership of Rolen Cares, LLC and purchased Senior Friend Home Care. They are committed to continuing our rich tradition and culture.
Your home is so much more than just a place to live. It is a personal space that builds dreams, holds memories, and inspires joyful living. It reflects the person who lives there and captures the energy and spirit of those who visit. As healthcare professionals, we know how much people value being in the comfort of their own homes. We consistently hear about the importance of feeling safe and in control. Our caregivers listen to our client’s needs and understand that the transition from total independence to assisted care can feel overwhelming. We are committed to making that transition more comfortable.
