Meet the Lee's Summit office

Seniors want to age in their own home with dignity but getting the right type of care can seem daunting. At Senior Helpers Lee's Summit we believe getting the best care for your loved ones should not be complicated. Karl and Lisa Crosby opened the Senior Helpers Lee's Summit office in 2005.

We take in-home care very seriously and make it a priority to provide the highest level of client service possible. Over the past 14 years we have built an exceptional team of caregivers, 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 Lee's Summit was proud to join the system in 2005. 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.

Karl and Lisa Crosby were drawn to this type of business after Karl’s mother lost a long battle with Alzheimer’s. Because of their own experience, the Crosby’s realized there were thousands of others going through the same experience and this was the kind of business they wanted to do. They both quit their corporate jobs and took a leap of faith.

Our team has grown to include 3 additional office staff and over 60 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.

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

We have had Senior Helpers look after our 98-year-old Aunt for the past year. We, being Texas residents, have depended on Senior Helpers to act in our behalf to tend to the varied needs of our Aunt. Senior Helpers has done an admirable job of fulfilling these needs and keeping us constantly updated on her life and health."
