Meet the Hendersonville Office

More than 90% of seniors want to age in their own home with dignity but getting the right type of care can seem daunting.  At Senior Helpers Hendersonville we believe  getting the best care for your loved ones should not be complicated.  We are committed to delivering the best possible in-home care to seniors in the Hendersonville community.

We take in-home care very seriously and make it a priority to provide the highest level of client service possible.  Over the past years we have built an exceptional team of care professionals, each committed to remaining at the forefront of the in-home care industry through our proprietary ongoing training and education programs.

Our History

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 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 Hendersonville was proud to join the system. 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.

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.

We currently serve the Middle Tennessee community from our multiple locations:

Our process

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, 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

Is Home Care the Answer?

Due to our responsiveness, dependability and personalized care, Senior Helpers has become one of the most trusted providers of senior assistance services in Middle Tennessee.

Caring for a Loved One with Dementia or Alzheimer's

Caring for a loved one with dementia or Alzheimer's is difficult. At Senior Helpers we have trained specialists in the area of dementia care. If you need immediate care we are on our way.

I received an emotional call from (a family member) this morning just absolutely thankful and praising the services she got from you guys over the last couple of days. She said that our team helped her more than she could have ever imagined or expected and she is beyond thankful. She is so grateful to whoever answered the phone the other day at 5am and had a caregiver there to help within hours and she couldn’t believe how much you guys cared about getting someone there. She said she couldn’t have dealt with the passing of (client) without your help and the amazing caregivers that were sent. You really really, REALLY helped someone who needed it and that’s what this is all about.
