2018 Business of the Year

It comes as no surprise to us that our Senior Helpers franchise in Stratham has been named a 2018 Business of the Year by the Exeter Area Chamber of Commerce. They were recognized at the Chamber’s annual event at the Ashworth by the Sea in Hampton, New Hampshire, and praised for the role they have played in the local Exeter Area business community.

The Business of the Year awards are modeled after the state awards presented by Business NH Magazine and the NH Association of Chamber of Commerce Executives, and are given to Chamber members that are exemplary employers and corporate citizens. Terry Traynor, who represents the Exeter Area Chamber of Commerce, says, “With the shortage of workers in the healthcare sector in New Hampshire, Senior Helpers took the initiative to work with the U.S. Department of Labor, the N.H. Department of Labor, Apprenticeship USA-NH, and the Community College System of N.H. to develop and launch the first Home Health Aide Apprenticeship Program in the state. Terry added that “the company has also been the proud recipient of the 2015, 2016, and 2017 Provider of Choice Award from HomeCare Pulse, which conducts independent surveys with clients and their families.”

We are excited to see Senior Helpers of the Greater Seacoast keep making great strides in their local business community, and continue setting a positive example for Senior Helpers franchises nationwide.
