By KNSS Radio

A Place for Mom, a senior care referral service, plans to hire more than 600 employees and open a new Overland Park office. 

The Seattle-based company says hiring is already underway and will occur over five years. It plans to open a temporary office next week and then build a new office in Overland Park. 

The firm will receive about $12 million in state incentives. The Kansas Department of Commerce awarded the economic development incentives through seven state programs.
