Seniors Helping Seniors Review

As they grow older, many people make plans to leave their homes and enter some sort of senior living arrangement. But many others make arrangements to stay in their homes as long as possible. This can require some remodeling and some decluttering, and it can also require bringing people into the home to help with all the activities that necessary to maintain the person’s quality of life. Seniors Helping Seniors provides these types of assistance, and aims specifically to employ other seniors in the process of caring for their clients, all with the aim of providing caregivers ready to offer compassionate and competent home care services.

“I really love my job and working with the all the staff, and the receivers and providers. I appreciate the way I have been allowed to work, making my own appointments . . . being a senior myself, that is important. The providers can choose their assignments and are dedicated to providing care for the seniors. I have seen some great relationships develop between receivers and providers.”

“Over the past three years I have a wonderful woman that comes and services my garden, we shop together for flowers in the spring, weed through the summer and prune in the fall. Because of the help offered by Seniors Helping Seniors I have been able to sit in my yard or porch and enjoy nature. In the winter a handyman from Seniors Helping Seniors comes to tighten up my house. Removing the air conditioner, securing the windows, fixing door knobs and other things as needed.”
