We know and respect that aging in place is the best care and comfort of all. Getting uncompromising senior care should not be complicated.
The care and services we can provide ranges from traditional hands-on or companionship care to more complex care like Dementia, Parkinson’s, or Recovery Care. Visit here for a full list of services and programs that we offer.
We begin with a customized care management plan for all clients, and manage their care from that point forward. Our Caregivers receive specialized training to provide individualized treatment, and all care is under the direct supervision of our nursing staff (RNs and LPNs).
Program Spotlight: Going Home Safe
One of the newest programs we offer at Senior Helpers Boston is "Going Home Safe," which provides families comprehensive support before, during, and after a hospital or rehab discharge. We work with families and seniors to avoid readmission by developing a plan that puts the senior’s recovery at the center. Our trained Caregivers collaborate with seniors and their families to support a safe, full recovery at home, wherever home may be.
Our Caregivers are certified, trained, and trusted.
Our Caregivers are highly qualified, full employees of Senior Helpers Boston. All Caregivers are Certified Nursing Assistants and/or Home Health Aides. They undergo rigorous specialized training, and participate in consistent, ongoing education programs. All Caregivers must pass a full national background check and training validation.

Meet the Owner: Mark Friedman, Senior Helpers Boston & South Shore
I'm Mark Friedman and I have been in the senior care industry since 2009. Senior care is my passion. My goal is to set a new standard in senior care in Massachusetts—from our roots delivering exceptional care, to a high-touch agency with significant resources and connections for elders. I have always believed aging is a journey, and at Senior Helpers Boston and South Shore, we meet seniors wherever they are in their deeply personal travels.
For Senior Helpers Boston and South Shore, we set the bar high in caregiver training, education, and quality of services and experiences.
It is why I advocate and lead the charge for home care licensing and standardized practices. I am a frequent editorialist in the South Shore Senior News and the Jewish Advocate on issues of aging and senior care. I also teach and hope to influence the next generation of industry leaders. I served as a Faculty member in Lasell College’s ambitious E.L.D.E.R. Partnership Program; as a certified trainer of the Virtual Dementia Tour (VDT®), I share the inspirational work being done in Alzheimer’s and Dementia care with my professional colleagues. So together, we all raise the bar in senior care.
Our goal is to be more than just a Senior Care provider, but to be your trusted partner in care.
Pam Carroll, RN, Director of Care, leads and directs all of our care delivery.

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.
