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 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 of Rhode Island has been a part of the SH Franchising team since 2006. Our local agency is fully-committed to the original goal of providing dependable and affordable in-home care by leading a professional, dedicated team of well-trained compassionate caregivers. “At Senior Helpers of Rhode Island we truly care about the well-being of our clients and their families. Our main goal is to enable our seniors to remain happy and safe in the comfort of their homes by meeting each of their individual needs.” (Soraya Neighbors, Owner).
Our team is presently composed of 8 staff members and 50+ caregivers. We are grateful to have served hundreds of seniors in our community over the years, and we are committed to continue providing the highest levels of care to all of our families for years to come.
