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 began serving the Inland Northwest in 2006, and in 2014, Mark and Tiffany Murphy acquired the Spokane office. In 2019, their award-winning service expanded to North Idaho. Mark, an experienced business and community leader in Spokane and North Idaho, and Tiffany, a Registered Nurse, were looking for a business that would allow them the opportunity to utilize their experience and provide a difference in their community. Senior Helpers met that criteria.
Like every other owner, Mark and Tiffany are fully-committed to the original goal of providing dependable and affordable in-home care with well-trained caregivers, and Senior Helpers of North Idaho is a valuable resource for seniors and families in its community. Tiffany’s strong geriatric home health experience and extensive training in Alzheimer’s/dementia and Parkinson’s Disease, has made a difference in the lives of her aging clients, ensuring that the clients’ needs and goals are met with compassion, respect, and professionalism.
Making the decision to seek in home care for a family member is never an easy decision. Tiffany and her team at Senior Helpers will walk you through the steps, explain your options, provide relief to you and your family, and provide excellent communication with the aim of meeting the changing needs of your loved one.
