Seniors Helping Seniors® in-home care services have grown rapidly in recent years by building a workforce of talented caregivers who create meaningful relationships with their senior care receivers. In celebration of National Caregivers Day on February 17, we are honoring those caregivers, whose tireless work has made us a leading in-home care provider.
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).
Family members are the primary caregivers for the vast majority of older adults and people with disabilities in the U.S. As Seniors Helping Seniors® expanded into markets across the country, the brand has provided opportunities for those caregivers to turn their hard work and passion into lucrative career opportunities while also offering a source of relief to family caregivers experiencing burnout.
Seniors Helping Seniors® caregivers are essential to what we do and are so valued at our organization. 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.
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®, prioritizes hiring people over the age of 55 as caregivers. We provide a wealth of support to ensure the mental, physical, and emotional health of its caregivers.
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 our caregivers as well. 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 an opportunity to grow and make an impact with our services. Our caregivers truly have a way to give and receive®.
