NH Business Review Names Senior Helpers as a 2018 Business Excellence Awards Recipient
Senior Helpers among 16 recipients to be honored at 16th annual award reception on Nov. 1st
STRATHAM, N.H. – November 2, 2018 – Senior Helpers today announced that Dwight Davis was awarded the 2018 Business Excellence Award in the HEALTHCARE for small organizations from NH Business Review. The annual awards honor top business leaders in New Hampshire for their industriousness, innovation and imagination. The annual Business Excellence Awards ceremony, honoring all recipients, was held on Thursday, November 1st from 5:30 – 8:30pm at the DoubleTree by Hilton Manchester Downtown.
Dwight Davis was selected for his companies work in the In-Home Health Care services; Senior Helpers provides services in Hillsborough, Merrimack, Rockingham and Strafford counties. Davis worked with ApprenticeshipUSA-NH and the Community College System of New Hampshire to develop and launch the first Home Health Aid Apprenticeship Program in the State of New Hampshire. Great Bay Community College was the first to host the course beginning in January 2018.
“We are humbled by the nomination and the receipt of NHBR’s Business Excellence Award. The need for in-home care in New Hampshire continues to grow exponentially as seniors choose to age in place…to live in their home for as long as possible. It is a need that New Hampshire is currently ill equipped to handle. We have built a fantastic team that continues to work diligently to address the needs of our community and to provide in home care for seniors and others in need of assistance with ADLs (activities of daily living), as well as good employment for those seeking a career path that has real earnings and growth potential for the foreseeable future.”
NH Business Review launched the Business Excellence Awards in 2002 to recognize New Hampshire’s business leaders who work tirelessly to cultivate and grow the local and statewide economy.
“We’re proud to honor this year’s impressive list of Business Excellence Awards recipients, all of whom play a significant role in the overall success of New Hampshire’s economy,” said Jeff Feingold, editor of NH Business Review. “Congratulations to Dwight, and all of this year’s recipients, who continue to make a positive impact on the Granite State and to inspire success through focus and hard work.”
