Our History

Our History

Senior Helpers of Clovis was proud to join the exceptional team of over 300 other Senior Helpers owners in 2007.  Tiffany was originally drawn to Senior Helpers because of her own experience watching her family all pitch in to care for her grandfather when he was diagnosed with a neurodegenerative disorder.  

During their journey, her family came across a couple of wonderful caregivers who were able to take a lot of the care burden off her family and give them the opportunity to enjoy her grandfather during his final years.  Tiffany knew after that experience she wanted to do for other families what had so generously been done for hers.

Tiffany’s husband, Shaun Phelan was similarly inspired to start providing quality care to the senior population after he witnessed the challenges his family experienced while trying to care for his grandfather. He realized the importance of providing personalized care to the senior population, so that your loved one feels like they are being cared for by someone they can connect with and never a stranger. 

These experiences fueled their combined passion to provide high quality, skilled care in the Fresno area.

In 2009, Shaun and Tiffany hired Irina Parsons as their Director of Operations. Irina has been at the helm of the Clovis office since that time. Shaun, Tiffany and Irina are committed to delivering the best possible in-home care to seniors in the Central Valley community. 

Like every other owner in the Senior Helpers family, we are fully-committed to the original goal of providing dependable and affordable in-home care with well-trained caregivers. Nothing is more important to us than being the best available resource for seniors and families in our community. We believe that our most important calling is to ensure seniors are safe in that we can preserve their dignity and improve their quality of life through our work. 

Due to our on-going dedication to compassionate senior care we have been lucky to serve hundreds of seniors in the Clovis area over the years. At Senior Helpers we are committed to continuing to provide uncompromising levels of care to all our families.

In 2019 Senior Helpers was named a Fortune Magazine Great Place to Work and Best Place to Work in Aging Care Services based on surveys of current employees.

Our process

Our process

The first step in the process is a complimentary, initial in-home care assessment with the guidance of our Senior Helpers LIFE ProfileTM and a highly trained Senior Helpers consultant.  This assessment can help you understand the true needs of your loved one using a 5-point data-driven assessment tool, and all your options for determining the best plan of care for your entire family.

In the initial assessment we will cover:

  • Your family's specific goals
  • Personal preferences and individualized needs of your loved one
  • Your loved one's daily plan design and schedule
  • Pricing and payment methods
  • Implementation process
  • Ongoing communication and follow-up plan

Our goal is to serve your family member by providing the highest quality compassionate personalized dependable care.

In partnership with her husband Shaun, Tiffany strives to provide compassionate care to seniors and families in the California Central Valley. She has spent 16 years in the home care industry and has a passion for supporting families during the last years of their loved one’s lives. Helping others find the best in-home care possible is the most rewarding thing she has ever done, other than raising her three daughters. When she is not working, you can find her with her daughters at a swim meet, riding their bikes, or having a family dinner with Tiffany’s mother Rachel, who is also a client of Senior Helpers. 

Shaun Phelan

Shaun was drawn to the idea of opening a senior care business after helping his mother care for his ailing grandfather.  He watched as his mother lovingly provided care through the last days of his grandfather’s life and saw the burden that was placed on her. When he learned about in-home care services, he immediately knew that this was his opportunity to make a difference and give back to his community.

Irina Parsons

Irina has been the Director of Operations at Senior Helpers for 11 years. In that time she has worked with hundreds of seniors, their families, and with professionals in the community to improve safety and quality of life.  For Irina, one of the things she loves the most about what she does is how much she has learned from the Senior Helpers families. They have taught her about patience, empathy and understanding but more importantly, they are a constant reminder of the value of family.  Irina is the proud mother of a 16 year old daughter and spends her time away from the office at the basketball court, watching her daughter play.
