About Senior Helpers
Senior Helpers is an industry-leading senior care franchise that specializes in quality, compassionate, in-home care and assistance for the elderly, providing a comprehensive range of services to facilitate comfort and independence for those living at home. Whatever your loved ones need, from assistance around the house to full-time supervision and care, Senior Helpers can help at a moment's notice. We're the only home care franchise that's endorsed by the Alzheimer's Foundation of America for award-winning programs in Alzheimer's and Dementia care and the only home care franchise with a Parkinson's Care program, endorsed by Michael J. Fox and the National Parkinson's Foundation.
Values & History
Founded in 2002 by Tony Bonacuse and Peter Ross after their own experiences caring with family members, Senior Helpers' first office opened in Baltimore, MD, where it quickly developed an impeccable reputation for in-home senior care. Building on that success, Senior Helpers began to expand, and over the last 13 years, the network has grown to more than 300 locally owned and operated franchises across the country, offering seniors the option to stay at home with the support of well-trained, affordable, and dependable staff. Nothing is more important than providing the best in-home care available for our families, and Senior Helpers is fully committed to providing that care for those that need our services.
As the number of seniors in the population continues to climb the need for reliable in-home care does so as well. About 20% of the US population, roughly 54 million people, are currently senior citizens and about 10,000 people will reach the age of 65 each day for the next twenty years. The home care industry brought in over $99 billion in total revenue for 2019, experiencing annual average growth of 3.7% over the last five years with projected values set to rise to 5.8% over the next year.

Interested parties will need strong social and interpersonal skills and solid management experience. Time management skills are essential as you work to grow your business while putting our clients first. No prior medical experience or training is required.
