Senior Helpers provides a full complement of home care services ranging from companionship and housekeeping services to personal care services including Live-In and 24 hour care services on a short or long term basis. We support general care needs or complex care needs such as spinal cord injury care or post-surgery care with our staff of Certified Nursing Assistants, Certified Home Health Aides and Companion Caregivers. All caregivers are full employees and undergo a rigorous 50 state background check and training validation. All care is under the direct supervision of our Registered Nurse.
Message from Mark Friedman, Senior Helpers Boston & Senior Helpers South Shore Owner
My name is Mark Friedman and I have been in the senior care industry since 2009. Senior Care is my passion. As Owner of Senior Helpers Boston, my goal has been to set a new standard in home care in Massachusetts – from our roots delivering exceptional home care, to a high-touch agency with significant resources and connections for elders in more than 75 communities in and around the city of Boston. I need to tell all of you how much I respect Steve and Robin Smith and have enjoyed working with them in Senior Helpers and in the metro Boston area over the past seven years. It is our common views on care that brought us together.
I have always believed aging is a journey, and at Senior Helpers Boston and Senior Helpers South Shore, we delight in meeting seniors wherever they are in their deeply personal travels. We advocate for aging in place because we care for seniors wherever that “place” happens to be. The depth and breadth of our services reflect our client’s increasingly complex needs in an increasingly complex environment. These requirements frame everything we do and how we do it.
We are well respected for our rigorous and highly selective caregiver recruitment, training, and education. And because of our significant footprint in the market, we now recruit from an impressive pool of professionals. I appreciate having this deep range of talent to draw from. It gives us a special edge.
My personal mission for Senior Helpers Boston and Senior Helpers South Shore is simple: to set the bar in caregiver training, education, and quality of services and experiences. And I want the bar to be very high.
It is why I advocate and lead the charge for home care licensing and standardized practices as an Advisory Committee member for the Home Care Alliance (HCA). It is why I have served as the national chairperson of the Senior Helpers Owners Council for the last five years and chair the Senior Helpers Service committee looking at the future needs of seniors and how we can meet them. It is why I teach and hope to influence the next generation of industry leaders as a Faculty member in Lasell College’s ambitious E.L.D.E.R. Partnership Program. And finally, why I share what I learn. As a certified trainer of the Virtual Dementia Tour (VDT®) I share the awesome and inspirational work being done in Alzheimer’s and Dementia care with my professional colleagues. So together, we all raise the bar.
Think of it this way; delivering comfort is what we do, delivering so much more, is how we care. Our goal is to be more than just a Senior Care provider but be your trusted partner in care.
