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 McKinney was proud to join the system in 2019. 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.
This is our personal commitment to you.
Be hands-on in all aspects of care and to be here for you 24/7, 365 days a year. We will be here whenever you need us.
Never send a stranger. Having caregivers show up at our door without being properly introduced or prepared is difficult. With Senior Helpers, this will not happen. A proper introduction will always be made.
Focus on our caregivers and the care that they provide you. We train our caregivers in many areas, such as Dementia & Alzheimer’s (through our exclusive Senior Gems program based on the Gems™, techniques, strategies, and overall approach to care which was created and developed by Teepa Snow, Positive Approach, LLC) to ensure they provide the best care. Additionally, we communicate with our caregivers daily and treat them with utmost respect as they are our business
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
Ongoing communication and follow-up plan
