About the Owners

Your Trusted Senior Home Care Partners in Massachusetts

Heather Kenney – Owner/Founder

Heather founded North River Home Care in 2007 with her mother, Laurel Lawson. Before starting the agency, Heather and her mother became certified nurse assistants (CNAs) and provided all client care until they were able to hire additional home health aides.

This firsthand caregiving experience has been critical in Heather’s understanding of the care needs of clients and their families, and the challenges and rewards of being a professional caregiver.

Through her close work with seniors, Heather has gained unique insight into how to help older adults live comfortably and safely at home with appropriate services and support.

According to Heather, “Staying home, whether home is a personal residence or an assisted living facility, is the preferred choice of the vast majority of seniors. I have seen it work beautifully for our clients and their families and I am proud to be a part of that solution.”

Heather also wrote The Home Care Handbook to share her experience and expertise with family caregivers in our area.

Liam Kenney – Owner/CFO

Liam Kenney brings a solid background in business to North River Home Care. With a bachelor’s degree in finance, Liam manages the business and financial side of North River Home Care, helping the home care company grow in a positive direction.
