Are you feeling overwhelmed caring for an aging loved one? 

Senior Helpers can provide support services.

We invite you to sit down with Lynn Iseppon to learn about how Senior Helpers can deliver personalized assistance to seniors who wish to age in place. 

Senior Helpers employs caregivers that have been trained in several specialty programs. These caregivers will assist and encourage people who may be afflicted with dementia/Alzheimer’s or Parkinson’s Disease.

Senior Helpers' services are personalized for each client and may include: 

  • Companion Care – Offers companionship and assistance with Daily Living Activities.
  • Personal Care – (coming soon) – Offers Companion Care plus assistance with more intimate non-medical care needs.
  • Transition Assistance – Out of hospital or rehabilitation support.
  • Caregiver Respite Care – Offers coverage for family caregivers who cannot be there or need some time for themselves. 

All Senior Helpers services provide the social interaction needed to prevent feelings of loneliness and isolation which can often manifest themselves in signs of depression.

Lynn Iseppon will be available the following Thursdays in April (5th, 19th, 26th) from 3:00 - 5:00PM to meet with you.
