For our basic level of care, caregivers provide services such as companionship, meal planning and preparation, light housekeeping, laundry, medication reminders, and other general assistance. For sitter services, caregivers sit with and monitor a client during their hospital or facility stay. The caregiver can then follow the client home to provide a smooth transition. For our advanced level of care, our professional and experienced caregivers provide basic companion care plus assistance with the Activities of Daily Living (ADLs), such as bathing, dressing, grooming, toileting, and ambulation assistance. These services are initially assessed and regularly monitored by either an on-site care coordinator, Social Worker or RN depending on the regulations of the state that the office is located in. Our caregivers are available to provide 24-hour coverage, as long as they can sleep for eight hours per day.
Why Senior Helpers?
Senior Helpers franchise owners are uniquely positioned to capitalize on the booming need for in-home senior care. Families’ aging loved ones need more than helping hands to assist around the home. They need a team of caregivers and professionals that bring the clinical expertise in Alzheimer’s and dementia for which families are asking, and provide professional guidance on short- and long-term geriatric care decisions.
With Senior Helpers elder care franchise, you provide the professionalism and expert care that families and their aging loved ones require.
After retiring from a long and successful career in the toy industry, Bob Nations decided to feed his entrepreneurial spirit and take on a new business venture. At the same time, Nations and his family were forced to put his grandmother, who was suffering from Alzheimer’s, into a nursing home due to the lack of suitable in-home care options. His grandmother sadly passed away six months later and Nations decided to open a Senior Helpers franchise in her honor. Since then, Nations has been providing his community with the first-rate senior care that he once could not find and has built his business into one of Senior Helpers top franchises.
