Steve Zimmerman - Owner Senior Helpers of the Peninsula: "I got involved with Senior Helpers with the goal of providing dependable and affordable care for the elderly and therefore making a difference in their day-to-day lives. I have been personally affected by the impact of Alzheimer’s disease and Dementia. My mother-in-law was taken by Alzheimer’s about five years ago. It took her about four years to succumb to the disease. I thought that journey was so significantly difficult and disruptive that if I could do something to ease that road for anyone else, that it could make a difference in the quality of their lives. I needed to step up to the plate. Acquiring Senior Helpers of San Mateo was a small, but I hope, important way of giving something back. My family’s struggles and battles during my mother-in-law’s journey guided my decision. If I can make even a small difference, help even one person enjoy life a little more, I will have accomplished something special."

Prior to Senior Helpers Steve spent 25 years involved in a wide range of customer-service businesses that include mergers and acquisitions, as well as small business brokerage, finance, business development and sales and account management. His experience provides a strong foundation from which Steve built a business founded upon professionalism and second-to-none customer service. This approach carries over to each and every one of his clients at Senior Helpers.

Steve holds a BS in Finance from Colorado State University and an MBA from San Jose University. He lives in Los Altos, California with his wife and has two adult children that live in Southern California.

We held a memory screening event sponsored by the Alzheimer’s Foundation of America.

What is the Virtual Dementia Tour?

Learning to create a positive environment for those with dementia can only come from attempting to walk in their shoes. Created by P.K. Beville, a specialist in geriatrics, this valuable, easy to follow experiential tour is designed to instill hope in professional and family caregivers, providing them with a tool to move from sympathy to empathy and better understand the behaviors and needs of their loved ones and patients.
