Making Scores Work in Your Favor

As the owner of Senior Helpers Boston and South Shore I help my clients and their families make important decisions about their care plans at home. As a son (along with my siblings), I am also instrumental in helping my parents successfully age in their home in Virginia – an airport away from me here in New England. Both of these come with huge responsibilities and accountability.

Training the Angels: Finding Those to Do the Amazing

As Owner of Senior Helpers Boston and South Shore, no one needs to give me a primer on the impact of professional caregivers. In my opinion it is one of the hardest jobs in the world. I know this because it’s my job to find, recruit, develop, train and empower a broad team of talent to caregive for a diverse group of clients I have the privilege of serving in more than 75 communities in and around Greater Boston. They are both my and your angels.
