2020-04-16T12:52:38-04:00April 16th, 2020|Tags: , , , , , , , |

Declared an Essential Health Service, Local In-home Senior Care Company to Add 15 New Caregivers to Support Northern Colorado-Area Seniors and their Families; Partners with local businesses to deliver meals to families in need.

FORT COLLINS, Colo. — Declared an essential health service as a home health agency, Senior Helpers®, one of the nation’s premier providers of personalized in-home senior care, today announced its locations across Northern Colorado, including Fort Collins, Laporte and Greeley, will bolster its corps of caregivers to support local seniors and their families. Further, Senior Helpers of Northern Colorado has partnered with several local businesses to produce and deliver meals to families in need throughout its communities.

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), seniors are exceptionally vulnerable to the novel Coronavirus and should avoid being out in public. This situation makes in-home care one of the safest options available for seniors today. As a result of the community’s growing needs, Senior Helpers will immediately add up to 15 new caregivers across its regional franchise network, to include personal care workers and home health aides that will complement its existing team of professionally trained in-home senior care experts.

“We know that older adults and their families need tremendous support in keeping elderly loved ones healthy and safe during this global pandemic, and we are committed to offering this essential service safely in their homes,” said Gil Atanasoff, owner and executive director at Senior Helpers of Northern Colorado. “Our community can rest assured knowing the Senior Helpers team is dedicated to offering premier in-home care and that we will do so with proper precaution.”

Senior Helpers provides each franchise owner across its nationwide network with Personal Protection Equipment (PPE) that is needed to help ensure all caregivers and clients remain safe under its care amid the current pandemic. Further, Senior Helpers of Northern Colorado will host virtual interviews, pre-hire, and new hire sessions for a safe and effective hiring process for all new team members. The company recently digitized all documents and forms to ensure the safety of its new and existing team members, while also improving and streamlining the hiring process.

“In this time of complete uncertainty, we are proud to be able to continue offering local-area seniors and their families the care they need,” said Peter Ross, chief executive officer, Senior Helpers. “Preserving the safety and health of our team and clients will continue to be our highest priority, and we encourage seniors and their families to continue seeking safe, effective in-home care, knowing Senior Helpers will follow every precaution and procedure with the utmost consideration.”

Additionally, Senior Helpers of Northern Colorado, together with FoCo Café, Jay’s Bistro, Fort Collins Delivery Network, The Alternative Board – Northern Colorado, Me Oh My Café and Mill City Church, is coordinating meal deliveries and pickup sites to support families in need. The meals, created by Jay’s Bistro for Easter and by FoCo Café ongoing, are hand-delivered to Senior Helpers clients, low-income independent living senior apartments, homeless community members, families with school-aged students and more. The company has also collaborated with Me Oh My Café and Mill City Church to set up pickup points for local families to safely obtain meals to take home. The initiative began Easter Sunday with a brunch menu consisting of Glazed Ham & Herb-crusted Leg of Lamb, Bistro Potatoes, Deviled Eggs and much more, and FoCo Café anticipates delivering meals ongoing to those in need within the community during these uncertain times. The organizations delivered over 250 meals on Easter Sunday alone.

“With schools closed until the fall and older adults relying on others to bring them groceries so that they stay out of harm’s way, we know that far too many families in our communities are struggling to obtain daily essentials like food,” added Atanasoff. “We knew we had to do something more to help our clients, their families and others throughout Northern Colorado, and we are so grateful for our partners who have given us the opportunity to be involved in the distribution of meals to those who need it most.”

Senior Helpers of Northern Colorado and its caregivers are available to continue providing immediate care and support for the local senior community and their families. Senior Helpers will continue to be transparent with any new developments and will provide any further updates as necessary. For more information on Senior Helpers of Northern Colorado and how to apply, please visit https://www.seniorhelpers.com/co/fort-collins/careers.

Caregiver at Senior Helpers® of Scottsdale Recognized as Hometown Hero

2020-04-07T11:47:52-04:00April 7th, 2020|Tags: , , , , , , , |

Cinthia Acosta Goes Above and Beyond to Help Seniors in Need During COVID-19 Pandemic.

SCOTTSDALE, Ariz.Senior Helpers®, one the nation’s premier providers of personalized in-home senior care, today announced its Scottsdale location has recognized caregiver Cinthia Acosta for her outstanding dedication to her clients’ wellbeing and safety amid the global COVID-19 crisis. Acosta began her career with Senior Helpers in July 2019 and has since developed a sincere passion and expertise for caregiving, a journey inspired by personal experience caring for her own grandmother. Her commitment to her role has proved critical to maintaining the health of her elderly clients during a time when they need it most.

“Cinthia has been a shining star and model for exemplary client service, and especially during this time of uncertainty,” said Tiffany Phelan, owner of Senior Helpers of Scottsdale. “From gifting her own cleaning supplies to clients as local stores run low, to changing her personal schedule to accommodate her clients’ needs, to the precise precautions she takes with each and every individual she works with, Cinthia demonstrates a sincere passion and true devotion to this community. Having Cinthia on our team and seeing the difference she’s making in our community is a ray of sunshine in a dark moment.”

As an Essential Health Service, Senior Helpers will continue to meet the growing needs of in-home senior care across the U.S. by providing this vulnerable community with vital support. To help its clients and caregivers operate safely and effectively, the company is taking the unprecedented step of utilizing corporate funds to ship every location the Personal Protection Equipment (PPE) that is needed to ensure both its caregivers and clients remain safe during the current COVID-19 pandemic. “Everyone could use a little extra love and care right now, so it’s an honor to work with Senior Helpers to give love and care for my local community,” commented Acosta. “I am grateful for Senior Helpers’ ability to give me and my fellow caregivers the equipment we need to continue our mission safely at a time when our clients really do need us most.”

Acosta currently cares for a local elderly couple whom she now considers part of her own family. In addition to her duties of cleaning, helping her clients shower, cooking, ordering groceries and engaging in fun activities such as word puzzles, Acosta encourages her clients tell stories of the adventures they shared during their 30 plus years of marriage—a tactic that bring seniors back to a time where their memories are the strongest.

“My grandmother, Juanita Rios, lived in Ciudad Juarez, Mexico, and inspired me to enter a career focused on caring for others. I was only able to be with her for one week at the end of her life, before returning to the U.S. for work,” explained Acosta. “I made that time count by attending to her needs in the hospital and treasuring every moment. So many people need similar assistance, and I am honored to help those like her to live comfortably and contently in their own homes.”

Despite having three kids home from school due to the global pandemic and a husband also working a full-time work schedule, Acosta continues to offer tremendous support for her elderly clients. She added, “Anytime someone new comes around or visits, it can be stressful for them. It’s better to have someone they know already and someone who knows what they like. I don’t think about leaving them. I never crossed my mind that I would ever change my job.”

Senior Helpers operates with a vision to be the leading home care company in each community it serves. Since opening in 2007, Senior Helpers of Scottsdale has supported local seniors and their families with the highest level of care possible based on the company’s Senior Gems® Alzheimer’s and Dementia care program.

Responding to Increased Need for Help, Premier In-Home Senior Care Company Experiences Tremendous Job Growth in the U.S.; Becomes First National In-Home Care Organization to Provide Personal Protection Equipment for Staffers in All Locations.

BALTIMORE — One impact of the COVID-19 pandemic has been a recommendation that seniors need to avoid public groups. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), seniors are exceptionally vulnerable to the novel Coronavirus and should avoid being out in public. This makes in-home care one of the safest options available for seniors today, which means more seniors are now staying in their homes and need assistance.

Senior Helpers®, one of the nation’s premier providers of personalized in-home care, is seeing the demand for its services increase and has begun hiring new caregivers in most markets across the U.S. to focus more on taking care of others.

Certified as a Great Place to Work, the company is the first, and so far the only, national in-home care provider to provide each franchise owner across its nationwide network with Personal Protection Equipment (PPE) designed to help ensure all caregivers and clients remain safe under its care amid the current pandemic.

“People want to keep their parents safe and follow the CDC’s recommendation to have seniors avoid groups of people. This has translated into a significant increase in the need for in-home care,” said Peter Ross, co-founder and CEO of Senior Helpers.

With health and safety in mind for both its staff and applicants, Senior Helpers is taking the unprecedented step of using corporate resources to ship every location the PPE that is needed. Further, the company will host virtual interviews and pre-hire sessions for a safe and effective hiring process for all new team members. In addition to traditional onboarding, every new caregiver will also complete extensive, updated training with courses such as Hand Hygiene, Infection Control, Influenza Prevention and Transmission-Based Precaution, among others.

Columbus and Clotye Jones honored with prestigious award at ComForCare’s annual franchise conference

DETROIT — Columbus, MS ComForCare franchise owners, Columbus and Clotye Jones were awarded the 2019 Franchise of the Year award at ComForCare’s annual franchise conference in Houston, Texas, on November 16, 2019. Franchise of the Year is the most prestigious award following Caregiver of the Year.

The Joneses were recognized out of almost 200 locations for being high-level producers in the franchise system, creating and nurturing a strong local team, and being selfless givers.

“Columbus and Clotye embody the ComForCare values within their office and for the population they serve,” said Mark Armstrong, founder and president of ComForCare Franchise Systems. “They care for their clients as family, serve the community passionately, and shine with how they support their caregivers both at work and at home.”

Columbus and Clotye started working with older adults before they opened their ComForCare location. Cloyte volunteered with an organization that provided companionship and emotional support for seniors remaining at home. When Columbus became a deacon for their church, together they regularly visited those with chronic illnesses, disabilities, as well as aging adults in the community. The satisfaction from these visits led to their decision to open a home care agency.

“We are passionate about the level of commitment and reliability we provide our clients. I am committed to getting to know every one of our clients and their families personally,” said Columbus Jones. “That same level of commitment runs through our team. When we say we will be there, we’re there. When we say we will do something, we do it.”

The Joneses opened their franchise in 2010 and are part of one of the fastest-growing franchise business sectors in the country. According to the U.S. Census Bureau, the number of people 65 and older is expected to increase to 55 million in 2020, and demand for businesses like the ComForCare franchise that the Joneses operate will continue to increase as people strive to age in place.
