Meet the Stamford 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 Stamford we believe that getting the best support for your loved ones should not be complicated. Hal Zerman opened the Senior Helpers Stamford office because of his passion for helping others and his interest in the growing need for in-home assistance services.  Hal is committed to delivering the best possible in-home support to seniors in Stamford and the Fairfield County community. 

We take in-home services seriously and make it a priority to provide the highest level of client service possible. Over the 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

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 County, like every other owner, is fully-committed to the original goal of providing dependable and affordable in-home support with well-trained caregivers. Nothing is more important to us than being the best available resource for seniors and families in our community.  

Hal Zerman was drawn to Senior Helpers because he is passionate about providing affordable, quality home assistance to both Seniors and individuals with disabilities.

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.
