Meet the Burnsville 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 Burnsville we believe getting the best care for your loved ones should not be complicated. Alicia Saykao managed the Senior Helpers Burnsville office that opened in 2007 because of her passion for helping others and her interest in the growing need for in-home care services. Alicia and Senior Helpers staff are committed to delivering the best possible in-home care to seniors in the south metro areas of the Twin Cities community.

We take in-home care seriously and make it a priority to provide the highest level of client service possible. Over the past 12 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 Burnsville was proud to join the system in 2007. 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.

Alicia Saykao was drawn to Senior Helpers because of her passion for helping seniors and those in need of assistance to continue living independently with self respect and dignity in their home. Through her personal experience in caring for her father-in-law and mother towards their end of life, she realized the importance of them remaining in the comfort of their own home.

We have a wonderful office staff that works to support our exceptional caregivers so they can provide the best care to our seniors.   We have served hundreds of seniors in our community over the years, and 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, review 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
