Meet the Boston North 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 Boston North we believe getting the best care for your loved ones should not be complicated. Merritt Mulman opened the Senior Helpers Boston North office in 2008 because of his passion for helping others and his interest in the growing need for in-home care services. Merritt Mulman and Miles Mulman are committed to delivering the best possible in-home care to seniors in the North Shore and Merrimack Valley communities. 

We take in-home care very seriously and make it a priority to provide the highest level of client service possible. Over the past 10 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 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 Boston North 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.  

Prior to opening the business in 2008, Merritt worked for nearly twenty years in leadership roles at various non-profits. His entire career has been dedicated to human services and improving the quality of life of those with whom he works. He holds an undergraduate degree from Harvard University with a Masters Degree from UNC Chapel Hill. While he loves running this business, what Merritt really enjoys most is working directly with elders and their families.  If you ever have any questions, Merritt is always just a phone call away and ready to help.

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

Senior Helpers provided excellent caregiving to both of my parents in our time of need. My parents both needed a high level of care, and Senior Helpers was able to develop and adapt a care plan to meet their needs. Two aides in particular were very kind, patient, dependable and cheerful in their daily efforts. There was also a highly competent nurse that we could call upon, who would respond to any concerns that we had.
