When viewing my monthly calendar and seeing Senior visits listed, I feel reassured that my days will work just fine. It’s always been important for me to retain independence with a flexible schedule, calls and visits from my two sons, and interacting with stopovers from resident neighbors. Knowing that I can continue to live in my own condo and enjoy all of this with ‘a little help throughout each day’ is extremely satisfying. I am most grateful for the support and the many Senior care-givers/friends that I have met.

"My siblings and I are grateful for the wonderful care we receive from SHS for my dad who has dementia. They are reliable, dependable, responsible and caring! Never once have we received a call saying there is car trouble and they can't come. There is also good communication from the office to the clients with monthly scheduling emails. I would highly recommended both to work there and receive care.
I feel very fortunate to work for Seniors Helping Seniors, for many reasons. Our employer, office staff and our companions are all the friendliest and most professional people in our field. The reason we are all like this is because we get to help our very special clients everyday. It is our job to make them and their families life easier. Which makes them all smile, feel happy and well cared for. How great is that for us all!!

I still enjoy driving myself, however I’ve become somewhat hesitant about city-driving. In seeking an alternative, Seniors Helping Seniors was my chosen option when I was in need of a driver for a medical appointment. Seniors sent a friendly, reliable companion who was willing to drive my car while also managing directions and parking, as well as accompanying me thru the hospital maze. Calling Seniors whenever companion transportation is necessary has proven to be easy and efficient. I also appreciate receiving a monthly bill rather than worrying about per ride payments.

We have been so pleased with any helpers we have had with Seniors Helping Seniors.
We have moved on to a different life right now but who knows - I might need you myself sometime - but I hope not too soon!

Having recently fallen and broken my wrist I found myself somewhat immobilized. A call to Seniors Helping Seniors provided just what I needed … a few hours of assistance with personal care and daily chores within my own home … it was like having a friend drop in for a visit (not at all intrusive). My recuperation is on target thanks to Seniors Helping Seniors; however I admit that I’ll miss their helpful company but know that I can call them again whenever I may need ‘a helping hand.’

My spouse resides in a health facility (having moved from memory care to skilled nursing) while I live nearby in my apartment. With Seniors Helping Seniors involvement he is now safe and well cared for 24 hours everyday. My husband enjoys the men and women companions who come from SHS (as I do also when I visit daily); the kindness and care tailored to his needs is exemplary. When needing assistance, there is nothing better than being assisted by another senior (from SHS) who anticipates your needs and relates to your circumstances.

When my mother's health deteriorated to the point she needed 24/7 care my sister, brother and I turned to Seniors Helping Seniors for help. My siblings live in different states and I was unable to take time away from work to care for our mother. Seniors Helping Seniors provided the support our mother needed in a most professional and compassionate way. The caregivers became more of her friends than just caregivers. We are forever thankful to Seniors Helping Seniors for the care they provided when our mother needed it most.

My husband was in the military (sea duty) for many years. We had six children and it necessitated me being very independent. Well into my eighties and living alone, I decided to join an adult community. This proved to be a great move since I was no longer driving but still wanted to be independent yet have some fun. Now I enjoy more activities with my apartment companions and ‘friends’ from Seniors Helping Seniors. Keeping involved with Seniors supports transportation to doctor appointments or clothes shopping, trips to the beauty parlor, opportunities to eat out, and the enjoyment of companionship. If you want to remain independent as I do, you should call Seniors and let them assist you too.
