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 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 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 Northwest Indiana 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.
We were founded to meet the needs of the ones we love. Mike Stuckert, a native of NW Indiana, was looking for a way for his mother to receive quality care while staying in her own home. When he didn’t find any good answers, he created his own solution by opening Senior Helpers in 2008.
Mike understands the stress of having to provide care for a loved one and the toll it can take on families. Watching his mother go from a healthy and independent woman to needing help with everyday activities led Mike to put his heart and soul into providing outstanding in-home care. His desire to make a profound difference is the driving force for each and every one of the families we serve.
Having taken care of more than 600 families in more than 11 years, our team has grown, thanks to the wonderful referrals we receive from our community partners. We do everything we can to ensure our clients and caregivers are treated like our extended family.
