I acquired Senior Helpers Contra Costa in 2017. After spending a year as the care provider for my wife while she suffered through a difficult illness and caring for my elderly parents I came to understand the challenges family members have balancing their daily lives with caring for ill or elderly family members. Senior Helpers allows me to run a rewarding business that helps people in these difficult situations and improves the lives of both our clients and their families. Let us help you provide compassionate care for your loved ones while carrying on with your daily lives.
Rich spent many years as a Certified Public Accountant with one of the largest accounting firms in the world. He went on to pursue a career as an executive in the insurance industry serving as a Chief Executive Officer, Chief Operating Officer and Chief Financial Officer. He recently relocated back to California to fulfill his desire to own his own business. This led him to purchase the Senior Helpers franchise providing senior in-home care to clients throughout the San Francisco East Bay area.
Senior Helpers Contra Costa, offers a variety of services, including Alzheimer’s and Dementia Care, surgery assistance, respite care while hospitalized or recovering, veterans’ services, personal and companion care and much more.

Senior or Elder Care
Caring for an elderly family member while maintaining your daily life can be difficult at best. Senior Helpers Contra Costa can provide in-home senior care from just few hours a day to 24 hours per day, seven days a week to allow you to tend to your other personal and family responsibilities.
Senior care can be a simple as providing companionship, meal preparation and light housekeeping or as complete as personal care (ambulation, dressing and bathing assistance, and incontinence care). Need a ride to the doctor? We can also provide transportation. Our aide will stay with your loved one and return them safely home afterwards. We take the worry out of caring for your loved one.
We specialize in providing professional home care aides to come into the home of our clients and assist them with maintaining their independence. Our companion care can help with activities like light housekeeping, laundry, meal planning and preparation, as well as running errands. We also provide personal care such as bathing and dressing, incontinence care, and ambulation assistance.
All of our home care aids are employees of our company and are fully insured and bonded. We don’t use independent contractors and our caregivers go through our interviewing and screening process. All of our home care aids have personal and employment reference checks as well as an extensive criminal background checks through the Department of Justice.
We are non-contractual so you can stop services at any time. The rate we charge varies based on the type of care that is needed and schedule provided.
Alzheimer's or Dementia
Senior Helpers has partnered with Teepa Snow, one of America’s leading educators on dementia, Teepa’s philosophy is reflective of her education, work experience, available medical research, and first-hand caregiving interactions. Working as a Registered Occupational Therapist for over 30 years her wealth of experience has led her to develop Positive Approach® to Care techniques and training models that now are used by families and professionals working or living with dementia or other brain changes throughout the world. The Senior Gems® created by Senior Helpers®, is based on the Gems™, techniques, strategies, and overall approach to care which was created and developed by Teepa Snow, Positive Approach, LLC. It is a method for identifying the characteristics of aging, from normal aging through the early and late-stage dementia which many seniors are now facing. Senior Gems® focuses on what is precious and unique about each senior, and although changes take place as the disease progresses, Senior Helpers focuses on what these seniors can do with what they still have available to continue to live a purposeful life at home. It’s all about focusing on taking a positive approach and using strategies that will work.
Caring for a family member with dementia or Alzheimer's can be difficult and demanding. Lack of adequate care can result in injury or worse when Alzheimer’s patients are not properly supervised. Senior Helpers Contra Costa County will make available free copies of The Senior Gems, a 35-minute DVD featuring dementia and Alzheimer's expert Teepa Snow.
The 35-minute video guides care givers through the different stages of dementia and includes useful tips and techniques for helping loved ones with the syndrome. Teepa Snow is recognized worldwide for her innovative approach to dementia and Alzheimer's, focusing on what the patient can still do rather than the obvious limitations and memory-related issues. Alzheimer's is the most common form of dementia.
