Dedicated to helping families enjoy a better quality of life, Senior Helpers is a national leader in providing seniors with a wide range of personal and companion care services and assistance with everyday living activities in the home setting. Based in Timonium, MD and founded in 2002, the company has 300 franchised agencies in 39 states, Canada and Australia.
Senior Helpers hires only the most professional, enthusiastic, compassionate caregivers and provides dependable, affordable care to ensure that clients are able to enjoy living independently at home. The company has a strong focus on quality of life for the client and peace of mind for their families.
With the rising incidence of Alzheimer’s disease, the company has a special focus on meeting the needs of seniors living with Alzheimer’s disease or a related dementia. It creates a customized home care plan that changes as a loved one's needs changes, and ensures that its professional caregivers have the latest training in dementia care and experience in providing the appropriate level of care.
Senior Helpers has joined with nationally-renowned dementia expert Teepa Snow on a revolutionary program called Senior Gems® to help caregivers and families care for their elderly loved ones with this devastating disease. The Senior Gems® program is the first of its kind in the in-home care industry, and focuses on what people with dementia can do, instead of what they cannot do. It uses a classification system (based on the Allen Cognitive Disability Theory) that defines which stage of dementia the person is experiencing so that Senior Helpers can create the most appropriate care plan and select the best caregiver for that individual.
Senior Helpers has also produced a free DVD for families, “Your Guide to Supporting Family Members with Dementia,” which features Snow as she answers common questions on caring for loved ones with dementia.
As part of a collaboration between Senior Helpers and the Alzheimer’s Foundation of America (AFA), nine Senior Helpers offices in various parts of the country have opened AFA Care and Resource Education Services (C.A.R.E.S.) affiliate offices to serve as one-stop education and resource centers for their local communities.
