In celebration of National Caregivers Day on February 18th, Seniors Helping Seniors® services is honoring our caregivers whose tireless work has made us a leading in-home care provider in Chicago Metro. Caregivers are at the core of what we do, and their work is essential to the health and happiness of so many people around the world.
Celebrated nationally every third Friday in February, National Caregivers Day was established in 2015 by Providers Association for Home Health & Hospice Agencies (PAHHHA). Nearly half of all caregivers in the U.S. are over the age of 50 and are themselves vulnerable to declining health, which is why Seniors Helping Seniors® services prioritizes hiring seniors (people over the age of 65) as caregivers, providing a wealth of supports to ensure the mental, physical, and emotional health of its caregivers.
Our caregivers are essential to what we do and are extremely valued. They brighten the lives of seniors by providing compassionate care with a helping hand and supporting seniors to continue to live independent lives by taking care of day-to-day tasks that become more challenging with age. We prioritize caring for our caregivers just like our senior receivers.
We’ve put a lot of work into ensuring that Seniors Helping Seniors® in-home care is not only the best option for our receivers but also for our caregivers. That’s something we are extremely proud of, but it’s not something we take for granted. We will continue to make sure anyone who has the passion and skills to be a great caregiver will find a great opportunity to grow and make an impact with Seniors Helping Seniors® services. Our caregivers truly have … a way to give and receive®
