Meet the Riverside Office

More than 90% of seniors want to age in their own home with dignity but getting the right type of care can seem daunting. At Senior Helpers Riverside we believe that getting the best care for your loved ones should not be complicated.

Dr. Ramtin Yazdi, clinical pharmacist, owns Senior Helpers Riverside. The office is operated by his mother, Dr. Ellie Yazdi, with great passion for helping people and specifically the elderly. Ramtin and Ellie Yazdi, with their strong background in medical and clinical pharmacy, are committed to delivering the best possible in-home- care to seniors throughout the Riverside County. Both Dr Ellie and Ramtin Yazdi have been taking the quality care for the elderly personally and seriously.

At Senior Helpers of Riverside, we make quality in-home -care a priority and provide the highest level of client service possible.   The compassion and care for the patients has been the outcome of their upbringing in a family of all doctors.  Over the past several years we have built an exceptional team of care professionals, each committed to remaining at the forefront of the in-home care industry through our proprietary ongoing training and education programs.

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 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 13 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 Riverside, like every other location, is 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 have been lucky 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.
