Senior Helpers is happy to announce that we have been acquired by Advocate Aurora Enterprises, which now makes us the only home care company to be owned by a health system. Advocate Aurora Enterprises is an established subsidiary of Advocate Aurora Health which is one of the 12 largest not-for-profit integrated health systems in the nation. This acquirement allows for Senior Helpers to have an edge over competitors and continue providing quality care services.
Advocate Aurora Enterprises is a company that invests in businesses to enable people to improve their health and well-being beyond traditional clinical care settings. They also focus on investing within three important categories which are aging independently, parenthood, and personal performance. The President of Advocate Aurora Enterprises, Scott Powder, said “We deeply respect the company and its franchisees’ proven commitment to delivering compassionate care. One of our top priorities is to invest in companies that help people age well, and Senior Helpers’ fits that strategy perfectly”. This deal is to capitalize on Advocate Aurora Health and Senior Helpers shared commitments to the senior community and help these individuals prosper independently, comfortably, and affordably in their homes.
Senior Helpers CEO and Co-Founder, Peter Ross, explains this amazing union by saying, “This opens a lot of opportunities for us, thinking about what we can be in the broader health care continuum”. Ross also stated to Home Health Care News, “How do you control the overall continuum? How do you own it? It’s very hard for one person, one company or one organization to have all of the parts. Well, I think we’re the first organization in the country that now can say we own the full health care continuum”.
The scale of Advocate Aurora gives Senior Helpers many opportunities to flourish and prosper with the help of their experience as a premier health care provider. The U.S. Census Bureau declares that by 2030, one out of five U.S. citizens will be of retirement age. This supports the need for premier providers of in-home senior care to help seniors age peacefully in their homes, which Senior Helpers can provide with our Senior Gems® and Parkinson’s Care Programs, as well as innovative LIFE Profile.
Some potential synergy opportunities include:
Access to Advocate Aurora clinical services
Leverage of their clinical network for our LIFE Profile
Providing telemedicine for our clients
Utilizing Realtime clinical call centers
Collaborating with Advocate Aurora to foster care coordination where we overlap coverage
Expanding their Aging Independently strategy to help support Senior Helpers
