Our Team

Ted Pappas

President and Owner

Ted Pappas has been President and Owner of Senior Helpers West Los Angeles since 2011. He was born and raised in Los Angeles and graduated from USC with a business degree. Ted first developed a strong interest in Senior Home Care when his family was searching for a caregiver for his grandmother. It was a challenge to find a good caregiver as agencies were not established yet. In 2010, Ted left his corporate banking position of 20 years and became President at Senior Helpers West Los Angeles. "The greatest satisfaction I receive from Senior Helpers is providing solutions and great care for families who need help with their parents." We look forward to assisting your family and loved ones in West Los Angeles. 

Bill Pol

Prior to that, he worked at a large independent home care agency as a Branch Manager starting in 2001. With almost 20 years in Home Care, Bill has been a valuable part of our company. 

Our History

Our History

Senior Helpers was founded in 2002 by Tony Bonacuse with the help of Peter Ross after their firsthand experience in caring for their respective family members. Tony and Peter identified a need that was not being filled properly by the other companies. They realized that most seniors would prefer to age in their own home rather than move into an unfamiliar institution. Unfortunately, the options available to most seniors were very limited. Most seniors did not have access to well-trained, dependable, and affordable in-home care. This was the mission-driven spark that started Senior Helpers.

The first office opened in Baltimore, and quickly developed a reputation for delivering excellent in-home senior care with their well-trained staff of professional caregivers. Based on the success of the Baltimore location, the company began to expand. Over the past 14 years, the Senior Helpers family has grown to include a network of more than 300 locally owned and operated franchises across the United States.

Senior Helpers of West Los Angeles was proud to join the system in 2005. Like every other owner, we too 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.  

Ted Pappas was drawn to Senior Helpers because of its commitment to assist Seniors to remain at home independently.

Our team has grown to 3 team members, and 52 caregivers. We have been fortunate to serve hundreds of seniors in our community over the years, and we are committed to continuing to provide uncompromising levels of care to all our families.
