It is the most comprehensive approach to home care available, designed to encompass care for the whole individual – mind, body and spirit, in addition to care for the family.

Each franchise is given a cumulative score based on an analysis of more than 150 data points, and the 500 franchises with the highest cumulative scores become the Franchise 500® in ranking order.

“The 500 companies on this list all have something in common: They understand what consumers want now,” says Entrepreneur editor in chief Jason Feifer. “They may be an upstart in a brand-new category, or they may be a brand like Dunkin’ that’s ranked highly on our list for decades. But either way, making our list means they’re forward-thinking, nimble and closely in touch with their customers’ needs –because in an ever-changing business environment, that’s what a franchise must do to thrive.”

Leading In-Home Senior Care Company Sponsors Annual ALCA Conference in Sarasota, Florida Jan.9-11 Offering Aging Life Care Professionals Access to LIFE Profile

BALTIMORESenior Helpers®, the nation’s premier provider of in-home senior care services, today announced its corporate partnership with the Aging Life Care Association (ALCA), a leading nonprofit organization representing 2,000 professionals in geriatric care management who offer guidance and ongoing support for families and seniors in areas such as healthcare, housing and legal assistance. Senior Helpers is ALCA’s only national in-home care partner. The two companies will continue to strive toward a shared mission to ensure all seniors receive personalized and compassionate care.

This includes exploration of care delivery informed by Senior Helpers LIFE Profile, a revolutionary data-driven process for evaluating ongoing care requirements and risks associated with social determinants of health that can lead to hospitalization and lower quality of life. Used in combination with Senior Helpers’ best in class caregivers, LIFE Profile has demonstrated that care plans that are personalized and prioritized towards risk reduction can significantly improve client care and reduce overall system costs. According to the 2018 Profile of Older Americans, the 85 and over population is projected to more than double from 6.5 million in 2017 to 14.4 million in 2040, a 123 percent increase. Additionally, more than one in every seven, or nearly 16 percent of the U.S. population is an older American—someone aged 65 and up. As the population grows older, the need for aging life care managers grows. Moreover, today, approximately 21 percent of seniors who are released from a skilled nursing facility are admitted to a hospital emergency room within 30 days.

“We are honored to partner with ALCA, the nation’s premier organization for aging science and life care management,” said Mike Hughes, Vice President of Strategic Development, Senior Helpers. “We look forward to working with the ALCA and its highly respected membership to elevate the quality of senior care nationwide. Together we are taking important steps forward in improving quality of life for the nation’s seniors despite age-related illnesses and mobility challenges.”

Senior Helpers, along with its owners across Florida, will sponsor the ALCA Florida Chapter 2020 Annual Conference taking place at the Hyatt Regency in Sarasota from Jan. 9-11. The ALCA Florida Chapter is dedicated to promoting the professional field of care management by training, assisting, regulating, educating, and supporting qualified senior care managers who provide a full range of services to aging individuals, their families, and caregivers. For more information on the ALCA Florida Chapter Annual Conference, please visit here.

Senior Helpers operates with a vision to be the leading home care company in each community it serves throughout the nation. Its caregivers are fully trained and certified to offer the highest level of care possible based on the company’s Senior Gems® Alzheimer’s and dementia care program. As the gold standard for excellence in personalized in-home senior care, the program was developed in conjunction with nationally recognized dementia care expert Teepa Snow, Positive Approach, LLC. The company also offers a Parkinson’s Care Program, a specialized training program for their caregivers created in conjunction with leading experts from the Parkinson’s Foundation’s Centers of Excellence network.

Nationally Renowned Dementia and Alzheimer’s Expert Teepa Snow Partners with Leading In-Home Senior Care Providers to Deliver Valuable Caregiving Insights

TAMPA, Fla. — Senior Helpers®, the nation’s premier provider of personalized in-home senior care, today announced it will host an educational session on caregiving techniques for dementia patients on January 9, 2019 at Kings Point Veterans Theater (1900 Club House Drive, Sun City Center, Florida). The seminar was created in conjunction with, and will be led by, nationally renowned dementia care expert Teepa Snow of Positive Approach, LLC, who co-created Senior Helpers’ award winning Senior Gems® Alzheimer’s and dementia care program.

The interactive session will explore the unique challenges associated with dementia and the proper caregiving practices that lead to positive interactions. In addition to Alzheimer’s and dementia-related awareness and knowledge, participants will learn effective communication techniques, strategies to connect with people in a meaningful way and methods of providing the proper resources at the right time. The event is free and open to the public. Attendees are also welcomed to enjoy a complimentary, light breakfast and warm lunch at the event.

“At Senior Helpers, we know firsthand how difficult a Dementia or Alzheimer’s diagnosis can be, which is why we’re passionately committed to educating our caregivers, office staff, families, healthcare professionals and the public on successful caregiving strategies that we know through our Senior Gems® Alzheimer’s and dementia care program. The seminar is one of the ways we give back to our community,” said Scott Fox, owner of the Senior Helpers of Hillsborough and Sun City Center locations. “Teepa is at the forefront of today’s conversation on Alzheimer’s and dementia care and is able to provide invaluable knowledge to seminar attendees. She will not only cover the many brain, behavioral, and functional changes associated with Alzheimer’s and dementia, but how to deliver exceptional care tailored to a patient’s specific needs.”

There are currently 5.8 million Americans living with Alzheimer’s, and that number is projected to reach 14 million by 2050. Many of these individuals will need specialized care to combat the disorder, and it’s more important now than ever to equip caregivers with the necessary tools and knowledge to adequately assist those with memory loss.

Leading In-Home Senior Care Provider to Hire 500 Trusted Caregivers Throughout the U.S. to Bolster Resources for Aging Population

BALTIMORESenior Helpers®, the nation’s premier provider of in-home senior care services, today announced it will host its second annual company-wide National Recruitment Day event on Wednesday, November 20. This event is being held to encourage people to consider a rewarding career in caregiving, and Senior Helpers is hoping to hire more than 500 new caregivers across 300 locations nationwide. As the first and only national in-home care company to be ranked by the Great Place to Work® Institute as a Great Place to Work and recognized by Fortune Magazine as one of the Best Places to Work in the country in the Aging Services category, Senior Helpers’ rapidly growing business is focused on helping people age with dignity.

For the first time in U.S. history, older adults (people 65 years and older) are projected to outnumber children (under the age of 18) by 2034. As the U.S. population ages, it is creating a large and remarkable employment opportunity for those who are searching for a job where they are valued and appreciated. Senior Helpers’ National Caregiver Recruiting event underscores the company’s commitment to build a strong nationwide network of trusted, loyal caregivers to provide compassionate care for our nation’s seniors and their families.

“With more than 15 million adults in the U.S. requiring some degree of personal care, the demand for caregivers has never been greater, and we are leading the charge in strengthening the home care workforce and improving access to the quality in-home care that our elderly population needs,” said Peter Ross, CEO and co-founder of Senior Helpers. “Our caregivers feel a sense of pride and meaning in their work. During National Caregiver Recruitment Day we open our doors to a host of new, caring and compassionate candidates.”

For many Americans, the availability of highly-trained and reliable caregivers represents the best, and perhaps only, option for the elderly to age safely and gracefully at home.  According to AARP, aging in place at home versus a facility is the goal of approximately 90 percent of elderly Americans. Senior Helpers delivers unparalleled personalized care to tens of thousands of seniors nationally, by continually developing its network of caregivers through robust continuing education and training programs, ongoing evaluations and rigorous background checks.

Senior Helpers’ National Caregiver Recruitment Day exists to empower caring and compassionate individuals to consider a rewarding career in caregiving with one of the nation’s leading in-home care companies. This one-day event allows candidates to easily apply and interview in the same day.

Founded in 2001, Senior Helpers operates with a vision to be the leading home care company in each community it serves. Its caregivers are trained and certified to offer the highest level of care possible based on the company’s Senior Gems® Alzheimer’s and Dementia care program. As the gold standard for excellence in personalized in-home senior care, the program was developed in conjunction with nationally recognized dementia care expert Teepa Snow, Positive Approach, LLC. The company also offers a Parkinson’s Care Program, a specialized training program for its caregivers, created in conjunction with leading experts from the Parkinson’s Foundation’s Centers of Excellence network.
