Fortune Magazine and Great Place to Work® have named Senior Helpers®, the nation's premier provider of in-home senior care, one of the Best Places to Work in the country in the Aging Services category for the second consecutive year. Out of the 50 companies featured on the Aging Services list, Senior Helpers is the top ranked national homecare provider, taking the number three spot in the at-home care category. Senior Helpers and the outstanding work its caregivers and staff provide to the local communities they serve – especially throughout the unprecedented COVID-19 pandemic – helped the company achieve this recognition.
This is the second such accolade Senior Helpers received in 2020 from Fortune Magazine and Great Place to Work. In July, Senior Helpers was named a Great Place to Work®. A primary driver of these awards is the safe, inclusive and positive culture the company provides, with over 300 locations nationwide providing compassionate care and improving the quality of life for seniors and their families.
The recent Best Places to Work in Aging Services recognition is based on an evaluation of more than 60 elements of the team member experience, using feedback from more than 189,000 employees working for Great Place to Work-Certified™ organizations in Senior Housing & Care and At-Home Care in the Aging Services industry in the U.S. Recipients were evaluated against such elements as the extent to which employees trust leaders, the respect with which people are treated, the fairness of workplace decisions and how much camaraderie there is among the team.
"We are proud and humbled to have our hard work recognized by FORTUNE for creating one of the best places to work in the industry. This recognition reflects Senior Helpers ongoing commitment to providing an engaging work environment that is ethical, diverse and inclusive, enabling our employees to thrive throughout their careers with Senior Helpers," said Peter Ross, CEO and co-founder of Senior Helpers. "It's our utmost priority to provide the safest and highest quality of care for each and every one of our clients. We look forward to continuing to provide personalized care and companionship to our local communities throughout the country so seniors can age safely and gracefully in the comfort of their own home."
Senior Helpers operates with a vision to be the leading home care company in each community it serves. Its caregivers are trained to offer the highest level of care possible based on the company's Senior Gems® Alzheimer's and dementia care program. As the highest measure of excellence in personalized in-home senior care, the program was developed in conjunction with nationally recognized dementia care expert Teepa Snow, Positive Approach, LLC. Local residents will also benefit from the company's 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.
The company has taken unprecedented steps to ensure the safety of its caregivers, staff and clients. Senior Helpers was one of the first home care providers to source and ship the necessary PPE to every Senior Helpers location nationwide. The company continues to offer updated protocols in weekly communications within the organization on COVID-19 so that staff feel comfortable and prepared. The organization offers extensive staff training with courses that include topics such as Hand Hygiene, Infection Control, Influenza Prevention and Transmission-Based Precaution—all aimed so that clients can age safely and gracefully in the comfort of their own home.
