Meet the Venice 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 of Venice we believe that getting the best care for your loved ones should not be complicated. Jeff and Ann Radcliffe operate the Senior Helpers of Venice office because of their passion for helping others and their interest in the growing need for in-home care services. Jeff and Ann are committed to delivering the best possible in-home care to seniors in the communities of South Sarasota and Charlotte Counties.

We take in-home care seriously and make it a priority to provide the highest level of client service possible. Over the past 10 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 caring for their respective family members. Tony and Peter identified a need that was not being filled properly by the other companies. They realized 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 Venice was proud to join the system in 2008. 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.  

Jeff and Ann Radcliffe were drawn to Senior Helpers because of a direct family experience with Ann’s father in 2013 who required home care assistance as well as end of life care in their home. That experience, as well as Ann’s background in nursing, made them feel like they could make a real difference in people’s lives.

Our team has grown to 5 team members, and more than 50 caregivers. 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.
