Perhaps the greatest value that home care provides to individuals is choice, the choice to maintain independence, the choice to live at home and bring peace of mind to families.
One of the most difficult aspects of choosing a home care agency is having unknown caregivers show up at your door without being properly introduced or prepared. With Senior Helpers, this will not happen. A proper introduction will be made. Our Caregivers are supervised employees, not independent contractors. We are not a company, where workers are assigned to cases, leaving families to sort through the fine points themselves – whether taxes get paid, whether background checks have been performed, whether they’re bonded and insured. We do all these things in advance, along with testing skills, verifying credentials, checking references, speaking with families they have worked with before. It is that personalization that differentiates Senior Helpers from their competitors.
The first Senior Helpers office was opened in Baltimore, MD in 2002 and began building a reputation for itself as a professional organization with a dedicated staff of caregivers. Senior Helpers’ Senior Gems program®, along with its industry-leading Parkinson’s Care training program and multi-year recognition by Home Care Pulse® for being Best of home Care™ certified, all work to make Senior Helpers the best choice for in-home care. Organizations including the Alzheimer’s Foundation of America have lent their voices to recognize Senior Helpers as a leader in the field.
Senior Helpers Fort Myers and Cape Coral provides in home senior care services in Fort Myers, North Fort Myers, Cape Coral, Sanibel Island, Fort Myers Beach, Punta Gorda and surrounding areas.
The office is located in OakRidge Court (between Edison Mall and Fort Myers Social Security office). Just 8 minutes from Lee Memorial Hospital and 13 minutes from Gulf Coast Medical Center.
Manuel Chavez began his career in the ER of the Trauma Hospital, where he took his boss’s motto, “No person will be unattended on my guard” to heart. The situations faced taught him to remain calm during adversity, to think clearly and maintain his focuson the major priorities, to save lives.
Manuel then started a career with Novartis Pharmaceutical where he learned about nervous system illnesses like Alzheimer’s and Dementia, Parkinson’s, Epilepsy, and Multiple Sclerosis. Manuel discovered a whole world of limitations, frustrations, misunderstandings, that people suffer as they grow old, they feel lonely because they do not understand what is happening, and leaving the people who love them to feel helpless because they do not know the best way to assist.
After searching for a beautiful city, he decided with his wife and children to move to the Fort Myers – Cape Coral area, and thus place our experience and the desire to help in favor of the people who need us.
George Bernard Shaw once said, “You don't stop laughing when you grow old, you grow old when you stop laughing.” We want you happy because Senior Helpers is Senior Care only better!
Manuel Chavez comenzó su carrera en la Sala de Emergencias del Hospital de Trauma, donde tomó el lema de su jefe, "Ninguna persona estará si atención en mi guardia". Las situaciones enfrentadas le enseñaron a permanecer calmado durante la adversidad, a pensar con claridad y mantener su enfoque en las principales prioridades y así salvar vidas.
Manuel luego empezó una carrera en Novartis Pharmaceutical donde aprendió sobre enfermedades del sistema nervioso como el Alzheimer y Demencia, Parkinson, Epilepsia y Esclerosis Múltiple.
Manuel descubrió todo un mundo de limitaciones, frustraciones, malentendidos, que sufren las personas a medida que envejecen, se sienten solos porque no entienden lo que está sucediendo y dejan a las personas que los aman con un sentimiento de indefensión porque no conocen la mejor manera para asistir.
Después de estar buscando por una ciudad hermosa, decidió con su esposa e hijos trasladarse al área de Fort Myers - Cape Coral, y así colocar nuestra experiencia y el deseo de ayudar a las personas que nos necesitan.
George Bernard Shaw dijo una vez: "No dejas de reír cuando te haces mayor, te haces mayor cuando dejas de reír". ¡Queremos que te sientas feliz porque Senior Helpers es el mejor cuidado para los Seniors!
