Meet the Senior Helpers Roseville office

More than 90% of seniors want to be able to age in their own home with dignity but getting the right type of care can seem daunting.  At Senior Helpers Roseville we believe that getting the best care for your loved ones should not be complicated.  We recognize the growing need for in-home care services, and with our passion for helping others, we are committed to delivering the best possible care to seniors in the Roseville community. 

We take the opportunity to provide care in your home seriously and make it a priority to provide the highest level of client service possible.  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. You can feel confident that your loved one is in good hands with Senior Helpers.

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 accessible in-home care. This was the mission-driven spark that started Senior Helpers. 

The first office opened in Baltimore, Maryland, 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 Roseville was proud to join the system in 2021.  Like every other owner, we too are fully-committed to the original goal of providing dependable and accessible 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 are lucky to serve hundreds of seniors in our community, and we are committed to continuing to provide uncompromising levels of care to all our families.

At Senior Helpers - Roseville, our goal is to help provide high quality care for our clients and their families. We do this by delivering customized, dependable and cost-effective care. There is no greater responsibility than entrusting someone with the care of a loved one - and we want to earn your confidence to become your trusted partner.

We never send a stranger. Based upon our experience of working with caregivers, one of the most difficult aspects of being the client was having the caregiver show up at our door without being properly introduced or prepared. Or in the case of having a substitute, not getting any advance notification of a change — then dealing with substitutes who were poorly prepared to provide appropriate care for our son's needs. With Senior Helpers, this will not happen. A proper introduction will be made.

Caregivers are supervised employees, not independent contractors. We are not a referral service or “nurse registry,” where workers are assigned to cases, leaving families to sort through the fine points themselves — whether taxes get paid, whether background checks have been performed, whether they’re bonded and insured. We do all these things in advance, along with testing skills, verifying credentials, speaking with families they’ve worked with before.

Our process

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

Through our own experience of caring for elderly parents, along with our 15 years of experience working with in-home caregivers for our son with special needs, we know finding the right type of care can seem daunting. It is from this personal journey that led us to a career with Senior Helpers. We have followed our passion and mission for helping others to make a difference in the lives of seniors.

Kristi Jolly

Director of Nursing

Kristi has been an RN for more than 16 years. While she’s worked in almost every aspect of healthcare, her true passion is home care. Kristi began her career in healthcare at the age of 20, working as a nursing assistant in a nursing home. She worked her way through nursing school and continued to work in long term care and a transitional care unit. Having finished nursing school, she got a job at a hospital on the medical/surgical/pediatrics/hospice floor where she worked for over 3 years. It was while working at the hospital that Kristi discovered her love for community nursing. She worked as a nurse case manager for over 10 years and also as a nurse consultant on a per diem basis for home and community-based services. She was also the director of nursing for an assisted living facility and worked at crisis residential for people experiencing mental health crisis'. After working in several different areas of nursing Kristi found that her true passion was working with the seniors in her community. 

Kristi truly loves that Home Care provides the opportunity to spend more time on a one-on-one basis with clients. She takes the time to get to know our clients, understand their needs, and celebrate their life. In Home Care, she truly gets to see the difference we are making in their lives. As the Director of Nursing, she knows that we are providing outstanding care and the excellent customer service that our clients expect and deserve. Kristi’s top priority is to educate and train our caregivers and nurses to ensure they are providing the highest quality of care for our clients.                

I want to take this opportunity to express our thanks for the superb work Diane did for Dad while he was in the hospital. She was punctual, personable, and dedicated. She helped my Dad immensely during a difficult time for him. Her calm manner and brilliant smile worked magic. My Dad’s attitude changed completely for the better after her first visit. Thank you so much for giving us Diane. She really is a remarkable person and very caring.
