Meet the Meridian 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 Meridian we believe that getting the best care for your loved ones should not be complicated. Sherryl Foster opened the Senior Helpers Boise Treasure Valley office in because of her passion for helping others and her interest in the growing need for in-home care services. Sherryl is committed to delivering the best possible in-home care to seniors in the Boise Treasure Valley community. 

We take in-home care 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

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 Boise Treasure Valley, like every other location, is 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.  

Sherryl Foster was drawn to Senior Helpers because of her personal experiences with family members needing in home care.

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.

Our process

The first step in the process is a complimentary, initial in-home care assessment with a Senior Helpers consultant. This assessment can help you understand the true needs of your loved one, and your options. Together we can discuss their needs, our senior care services and determine what’s 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

Meet the Meridian Team



Sherryl is the owner of Senior Helpers.  Caregiving came into Sherryl’s life long before Senior Helpers.  Growing up in a home with a special needs sibling created a natural environment of providing special care and compassion for others. In the early years of her working career she worked as a live-in caregiver in a group home with special needs residents for United Cerebral Palsy in California.  After moving back to northern Idaho, where she grew up Sherryl pursued a career in Real Estate Appraisal.  She was a Real Estate Appraiser for 18 years, appraising residential properties throughout northern Idaho and then moving to Boise in 2005. 

After leaving the real estate industry Sherryl decided to further her education in health and wellness.  She obtained certifications as a Health and Wellness Coach, and Stress Management Mentor. Sherryl was thrilled when the opportunity came along to open the first Senior Helpers franchise in the southern portion of Idaho.  

Sherryl applies her educational and work experiences to her new business of providing care for others throughout the Treasure Valley. Sherryl’s own family had a time when in home care for a loved one was necessary.  The frustration, fear, and concern one feels when you need help is not foreign to Sherryl and her family. Sherryl’s family was fortunate to be able to rally their efforts together to provide the necessary short term care.  Sherryl recognizes that not all families are able to provide care for their loved ones, for a variety of reasons.  

Making the decision to seek in home care for a family member is never an easy decision.  Sherryl and her team at Senior helpers is committed to being there for you. They will walk you through the steps, explain your options, provide relief to you and your family, through excellent quality care and communication for your loved one. Sherryl and the entire Senior Helpers family is passionate about letting our senior community age in place with independence, grace, and dignity.
