Seniors Helping Seniors® an in-home non-medical service that offers caring services for seniors by seniors to help them live independently with dignity and respect. We are an innovative, intra-generational companion and home help service exclusively for seniors, by seniors.
We provide services, such as; companionship, transportation to doctor visits, meal preparation, housework and homemaking services, help with taking care of pets and other services to help seniors remain independent.
Our innovative program creates the support you need from people who will understand you the most. Everyone who works with us has an interest in helping others. Since our helpers are also seniors, they understand just a little bit more about the unexpected twists and turns of life. Our providers are seniors with the heart of a volunteer, but are compensated for their time.
For the people who help in the Seniors Helping Seniors® community, this is not just a job and you are not just a client. We are interested in who you are, what you need, and what you, in turn, can share with us.
Aging adults want to continue to live in their own homes, in familiar surroundings where they can remain independent.
In my many years of working with the elderly population, I have seen the need for in-home care and I have seen the strain that providing it can put on families. Family caregivers have less time for other family members or leisure time and risk feeling torn between the needs of their spouse, children, work and care giving. Seniors Helping Seniors® services can help, by providing care and companionship by active senior “providers” who can relate and empathize with “receiver” senior clients since they are the same generation.
Working in many nursing homes over the years I’ve seen many seniors who really did not belong in that setting. They did not have the opportunity live in the comfort of their own homes because they did not have anyone to help them. It could have been something as simple as not being able to get out to go to the doctor’s office, supermarket or going down the stairs to do their laundry. We want to provide the services, we ourselves, would want and expect; and to have these services provided by someone from our own generation, who could identify with our needs and concerns.
Seniors Helping Seniors® is a unique service, which can make a remarkable difference in the quality of the lives of both our receivers and providers. I am totally committed to providing 100 percent satisfaction and welcome the opportunity to discuss our services with you or your loved ones.
