Calling our local office in San Luis Obispo county is the first step. Our experienced staff will answer your questions and provide you with the knowledge and recommendations you need to make the right choice for your family. A Client Services team member will discuss and review your loved ones’ specific needs and explain a typical day with the in-home care services that are the best match for the current situation. We will outline and summarize the cost of care, and then set up a convenient time to meet with you and your loved one – typically at the location the care is needed. This complimentary in-home assessment is part of our normal process and is designed to introduce your loved one to our services and team members. We meet many individuals that are naturally very private and resistant to care. This first meeting assists in creating comfort and starts the process of establishing trust and confidence. After the initial meeting, we develop and implement a care plan that addresses your loved one’s specific needs via a schedule that is affordable and practical.

Call us now at 1.805.461.5892 to discuss how we can help your family’s specific needs.

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 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  San Luis Obispo County was proud to join the system.  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.  

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
