Meet the Greater Dallas 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 Greater Dallas we believe that getting the best care for your loved ones should not be complicated. Bent Schoellhorn opened the Senior Helpers Greater Dallas office in 2007 because of his passion for helping others and his interest in the growing need for in-home care services. Bent is committed to delivering the best possible in-home care to seniors in the Greater Dallas community.

We take in-home care seriously and make it a priority to provide the highest level of client service possible.  Over the past 11 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

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 Greater Dallas was proud to join the system in 2007.  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.  

Bent Schoellhorn was drawn to Senior Helpers shortly after his own father suffered a stroke and passed away.  At the time, he "happened" to be reading a book called The Purpose Driven Life.  Realizing he had a greater purpose in life, he sold his existing business to begin the venture of caring for seniors. Senior Helpers allows our clients to live at home safely and thrive with our care assistance. It has been his privilege to have helped hundreds of families and seniors maintain their independence for over a decade now.

Our team has grown to 9 team members, and 150 caregivers. 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!
