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 Southern Indiana was proud to join the system in 2015. 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.
Nancy Galloway was drawn to Senior Helpers because of her close relationship with her own grandmother. Nancy witnessed first hand the need for quality care when her grandmother needed care in her home to remain living independently. And again when her mother was diagnosed with terminal cancer and wanted to remain at home as long as possible. Nancy feels passionately about our calling to care for seniors. Do not cast me off in the time of old age; do not forsake me when my strength fails. Psalm 71:9
Our team has grown to 18 team members, and 250 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.
