About the Business:
Senior Helpers was founded in 2002 after several firsthand experiences in caring for family members. There were needs that were not being filled properly by other companies. One important fact was most seniors prefer to age in their own homes rather than move into an unfamiliar institution. Unfortunately most seniors did not have access to well-trained, dependable and affordable in-home care. This was the mission-driven spark that started Senior Helpers.
