About Senior Helpers

Senior Helpers Westchester

Senior Helpers delivers high-quality non-medical home care to your elderly loved ones using proven techniques for training and managing caregivers. Senior Helpers’ companion and personal care services range from conversation to transportation to meal preparation and housekeeping services as well as bathing and dressing. Services include a few hours at a time or 24-hour care services on a short or long-term basis. All caregivers are Senior Helpers employees and undergo rigorous background checks and training before they come into your loved one’s home. All caregivers are trained in dementia and Alzheimer’s care. Personal care services are provided under the supervision of a registered nurse to clients that require a higher level of assistance with the activities of daily living by our NYS licensed home care agency affiliate that has operated since 1982.

We proudly serve Westchester families in Ardsley, Bronxville, Dobbs Ferry, Eastchester, Hastings on Hudson, Irvington, Mount Vernon, New Rochelle, Ossining, Pelham, Tarrytown, Tuckahoe, Yonkers, and portions of northern Westchester.

Meet the Team:

Joanne Taylor owns the Senior Helpers Westchester office and leads all aspects of the business. After navigating the senior care market to provide and choose care for two of her family members, Joanne was moved to make a career change from financial services. She knows firsthand how difficult it can be to serve as caregiver, advocate and loved one at the same time. Joanne plans to add her highly effective, entrepreneurially-oriented executive skills to running a successful home care business. While serving in past roles, including vice president at an S&P 500 insurance firm and COO of a nonprofit loan fund with over $100 million in funds under management, Joanne honed strong operations and management skills. She is passionate about providing the highest quality care possible to Westchester’s seniors and supporting and training caregivers and other staff. Joanne strives to provide the best possible care to extend clients’ desires to age in place and remain independent at home. She and her staff also provide advice to clients and their families at a time when difficult choices become commonplace. She holds a B.S. in finance and marketing from Georgetown University and a M.B.A. from New York University's Stern School of Business.

 

Hope Miller joined Senior Helpers Westchester in March 2018 as the Director of Patient Services. She retired from her position of Vice President of Care Services at Isabella Geriatric Center, a not-for-profit organization serving the elderly since 1875 in March 2017. Hope spent over thirty years at the facility with administrative responsibility for facility-based departments i.e., Nursing, Social Services, Rehabilitation, Therapeutic Recreation, Volunteers, Marketing, Child Care, Pastoral Services. During her tenure, she facilitated the development and launching of community-based programs, i.e. Adult Day Health Care, Long Term Home Health Care, Senior Resource Center, and their Licensed Home Care Agency. Her responsibilities were to ensure federal, state and local regulatory compliance, meet fiscal mandates, adherence to quality measures and improvements, promote client, consumer and staff satisfaction while displaying good stewardship and responsible care for the vulnerable and at-risk populations being served. Prior to coming to Isabella in 1987, Hope held numerous positions in acute and chronic care organizations. She has participated on many committees seeking to set policy and influence both the local and national response to at risk populations. She has a B.S. in Nursing from Pace University and a M.S. in Health Administration from Long Island University.

 

Denise M. Mitchell joined the Senior Helpers Westchester team in July 2017 in the role of Client/Caregiver Coordinator. After watching her parents navigate the senior care field simultaneously to care for both of their aging mothers and for one of her uncles, Denise developed an interest in the field. Denise advocates for seniors and joined Senior Helpers to provide stellar companion and caregiving to an often ignored community. As a former educator in New York City and Long Island with about 15 years in the field, Denise has become particularly passionate about dementia care and teaching the Senior Gems program to our staff as well as other programs that will prepare our team to continue to deliver successful care to the senior community. Denise has a B.A. in Political Science from Spelman College and a M.S. in Elementary Education and an Advanced Certification in Educational Leadership and Technology from Adelphi University. Denise loves to write, read, crochet and travel when she is not busy parenting her teenage daughter. Denise lives on Long Island.
