Reality 2018: How The Caregiver Shortage is Hitting Home

The Questions of the Future are Here Now

The Key to Great Home Care Just May Be in The Beauty of Keeping it Simple

While Delivering Great Home Care is Serious Business, it Does not Have to be Complicated.

If We Keep Seniors Front & Center, All we Can Do is Right

I was recently reminded that October is Patient-Centered Care Month. This resonated with me because I often talk about seniors being the center of OUR universe here at Senior Helpers Boston and South Shore, and I was more than curious as to how our approach to caregiving aligned with the “patient-centered care” model popularized in the broader healthcare system.

Why "Aging Out Loud" Takes Communities of Care

As owner of Senior Helpers Boston I love the fact that there’s an “Older American Month”, and this year’s theme is “Age Out Loud”. It speaks volumes about our seniors, the control they continue to exercise over their lives, and about the communities that care about them.

Why does this happen? Where and how do things go so terribly wrong?

Why the Combination of Personal Support and Hospice Matters

When Navigating the Most Important Journey of All

As owner of Senior Helpers Boston and South Shore, I am in effect, connected to our clients and families. While I do not have the opportunity to meet all of them, I know something about each. Because of our nurse and case-centered approach to caregiving, every client in our care has a full case file of what we do for them every day. This is true regardless of the scope of care; be it something as simple as transportation and accompaniment to medical appointments to complex physical care for an advanced Parkinson’s diagnosis.
