Senior Helpers provided excellent live-in home assistance for my aunt. I appreciated the kind, compassionate and reliable caregivers provided by this agency. They consistently did their job very well. The owner and president of Senior Helpers in Fairfield, supervised the caregivers. She made periodic visits to my aunt’s home to verify that the live-in situation was going well for everyone involced. The help provided by Senior Helpers, a most professional and caring agency, allowed my aunt to stay in her home in a safe and caring environment which was reassuring to me. I highly recommend Senior Helpers for non-medical in-home services.

Our History

Senior Helpers was founded in 2002 by Tony Bonacuse with the help of Peter Ross after their firsthand experience in supporting 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 assistance. This was the mission-driven spark that started Senior Helpers.

The first office opened in Baltimore, and quickly developed a reputation for delivering excellent senior support with their well-trained staff of professional caregivers. Based on the success of the Baltimore location, the company began to expand. Over the past 19 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 Fairfield was proud to join the system in 2017. Like every other owner, we too are fully-committed to the original goal of providing dependable and affordable in-home non-medical support with well-trained caregivers. Nothing is more important to us than being the best available resource for seniors and families in our community.

Owner Dr. Jack Yeung was drawn to Senior Helpers because of our signature programs, which go above and beyond to provide a higher level of assistance for our clients.

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 support to all our families.
