Senior Helpers

Description

More than a companion care company, Senior Helpers provides full in home personal and companion care to seniors, including help with daily tasks such as light housework, meal preparation, errands, transportation, medicine reminders, meal planning, and Alzheimer's care. Offering a continuum of care (beyond basic companionship) puts Senior Helpers at the forefront of the industry and gives us a strategic advantage in the marketplace.

Business Quantifiers: Currently, nearly 20% of seniors have significant long-term care needs. Studies also indicate that by 2020, the number of senior households is expected to grow by nearly 53%, with more than 80% of seniors expected to still be homeowners. Their in-home needs will grow, as well, with the number of seniors with disabilities expected to continually increase. A US government commission recently concluded that "the need for Home- and Community-Based Services will grow substantially owing to the desire for seniors to age in place."
