Elderly Care

If you have an aging family member who is struggling to get around his or her home in Portsmouth, Exeter, Dover or Stratham, NH, hiring Senior Helpers for elderly care may be a great alternative to a nursing home or assisted living facility. We offer affordable, personal in-home care for the elderly, and all of our caregivers have been carefully selected for their compassion and courtesy.

Respectful, Personal Care

We'll meet with you and your loved one to come up with a customized care plan that will be designed to promote more independent living and ensure a better quality of life at home. Your loved one will get the care he or she needs, and you'll get the peace of mind that comes with knowing he or she is taken care of. We believe in providing our seniors with continuity and stability, so your loved one will work with the same dedicated, professionally trained caregiver whenever possible.

Senior Helpers serves patients throughout the Greater Seacoast area, including the cities of Portsmouth, Exeter, Dover and Stratham. We're available Monday - Friday, 9am - 5pm, and Saturday - Sunday, by appointment, and we accept Visa, MasterCard, personal check, and American Express for payment. Call us today to inquire more about our elderly care services.

Where to Start: Our Initial In-Home Care Interview

Even when you are close to an elderly family member, it can be difficult to know their specific needs. And in some cases, they might be apprehensive to mention their more personal needs.

The complimentary, initial in-home care interview with a Senior Helpers consultant can help you survey your options. Together you can discuss your loved one's needs and our services to determine what is best for your entire family. We will cover:

  • Your family's specific goals
  • Your loved one's daily plan design and schedule
  • Pricing and payment methods
  • Implementation process
  • Ongoing communication and follow-up plan
