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 accessible in-home care. This was the mission-driven spark that started Senior Helpers. 

The first office opened in Baltimore, Maryland, 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 Centennial was proud to join the system in 2020. Like every other owner, we too are fully-committed to the original goal of providing dependable and accessible 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 are lucky to serve hundreds of seniors in our community, and we are committed to continuing to provide uncompromising levels of care to all our families

We will cover:

  • Your family's specific goals

Gina Martinez

Care Navigator

Senior Helpers would like to introduce our new Care Navigator, Gina Martinez. Gina is a Colorado native who brings an impressively extensive 25+ year background in senior care to our team. She has done staff recruiting and training, assessment and care planning, as well as a creating and putting systems in place for accountability and follow up within the arenas she has worked. 

Gina credits her mother with being a true role model in her life. She recalls her mother always telling her, “If you are going to do something, do it well. Stick to doing what is right by people by always being ethical, kind, and caring.” It is easy to see that this has guided Gina through her career. “I am happy to be part of the Senior Helpers here at Centennial. Working in healthcare over the years, I have been rewarded by the simple fact of helping others. It is much more than a paycheck; it is a smile of gratitude even when it cannot be spoken; a glimmer of relief in the eyes of someone when you are able to hold their hand and tell them it will be ok. I am grateful for the opportunity to assist those who are unable to fully assist themselves.”
