When it comes to investing in a senior homecare franchise, the No. 1 goal and priority always is about the client. It’s our mission to provide the best possible care, but we understand that in-home senior care isn’t just about providing blanket coverage and assuming it applies to everyone. That’s where Senior Gems® comes in. Senior Gems® is a proprietary program, designed by Senior Helpers, to aid in the care of people with dementia and Alzheimer’s disease. This unique system helps our Senior Helpers caregivers properly identify the limitations of clients and focuses on what they can do instead of what they can’t. It’s this level of dedication to our clients that helps set us apart from other home care franchisors.

What Does Senior Gems Do?

The Senior Gems® created by Senior Helpers®, is based on the Gems™, techniques, strategies, and overall approach to care which was created and developed by Teepa Snow, Positive Approach, LLC. The program is designed to assess and provide care for seniors that have Alzheimer’s disease and other forms of dementia. As the population ages the need for quality homecare will rise, and with it the need to be able to care for people with Alzheimer’s and dementia. Senior Gems® helps identify the characteristics of a client’s particular case and determine what stage of dementia your loved one has, and then it focuses on the abilities that your loved one still retains. What can they do? How often can they do it? From there, we can help coordinate the best plan of action needed for you, your loved one, and your family, and help you discover strategies to support your elderly loved one. Having a program like Senior Gems® allows Senior Helpers to stand out from the pack when it comes to homecare franchises.

How is the Program Implemented?

Senior Gems® is all about preparation and execution. By preparing caregivers with what will be needed to care for their senior loved one, the Senior Gems® program ensures that seniors receive the exact care they need and that it is tailored to their given situation. The training is offered both online and in-person and is comprehensive in what it offers to caregivers. By preparing caregivers as much as possible, and continuing to educate and train them over time, running a homecare franchise through Senior Helpers would be an immense help to the senior population in your community. By having a trusted name in the area, you could help deliver peace of mind to seniors and their families by providing quality care every day of the week.
