Senior Helpers of the Greater Seacoast Awarded “Rookie of the Year”
Dwight and Gayle Davis Honored at Organization’s Annual Conference

(Sept. 27, 2016) Stratham, New Hampshire — Senior Helpers of the Greater Seacoast was recently named 2016 Rookie of the Year at the Senior Helpers annual conference last month. Since the location opened in 2014, the company has experienced a 586-percent growth. Run by husband and wife duo Dwight and Gayle Davis, Senior Helpers of the Greater Seacoast serves anyone over the age of 18. Their current clients are between the ages of 25-94, and in need of in-home assistance for reasons ranging from spinal cord injury to dementia, Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s.

In addition to exceptional growth, in less than two years, the company has:

  • Spearheaded a partnership with Project Walk, a recovery program dedicated to helping people suffering from spinal cord injuries to sit, stand and walk again. The Project Walk office it the first location on the east coast.
  • Trained more than 750 families through the Virtual Dementia Tour®.
  • Partnered with the American Red Cross and LNA Health Careers to launch a scholarship program for LNA/CNA health careers in hopes of resolving the nation’s shortage of healthcare workers.

Dwight Davis was one vote away from winning NBA Rookie of the Year in 1973 so this honor for Senior Helpers is near and dear to his heart. While playing for the NBA and running an in-home senior care business are vastly different, they both require something integral for its success: teamwork.

“At Senior Helpers, we work in teams to ensure there is always someone on the bench ready to step up,” said Davis. “Because of this, we have earned an unprecedented level of confidence from our clients and their families. Our number one goal is to give families hope and peace of mind through our services and programs.”

Davis also noted that in addition to encouraging teamwork, Senior Helpers of the Greater Seacoast provides employees with an environment where they can thrive and an opportunity to grow with the company.

Located in Stratham, New Hampshire, Senior Helpers of the Greater Seacoast serves Rockingham and Strafford Counties.
