There are several options when it comes to professional senior care, but in-home caregivers rank among the most reliable, affordable, and effective option for seniors. By allowing seniors to age in the comfort of their own home, they offer a sense of freedom and independence they wouldn’t have in a nursing home, and personalized care designed specifically to improve your loved one’s quality of life.
At Senior Helpers, our ultimate goal is to ensure a better quality of life for our clients and their families through professional and affordable care.
Benefits of In-Home Care
- With senior in-home care services, your loved one can rely on the consistency of a single caregiver who knows their needs inside and out and is always available should the need arise.
- It can be stressful and taxing to act as your loved one’s caregiver. A professional caregiver will be able to take much of the burden off your shoulders and allow you to go about your daily routine without interruption.
- When moving a senior into a nursing home, the negative effects of the transition are often overlooked. Many families enlist senior home care services because they recognize the health benefits of allowing their loved one to age in the comfort of a familiar environment, such as their own home.
- Many seniors prefer aging at home due to their ability to retain a sense of independence. While our caregivers are trained to assist with daily tasks and make life easier for seniors, their aim is to be as unobtrusive as possible and to leave your loved one feeling in control of their life.

In-home senior care services for veterans cover Activities of Daily Living (ADLs), which include things such as:
- Taking medications correctly
Additionally, the benefit includes in-home senior care services for veterans, their spouses, or surviving spouses who have been diagnosed with Alzheimer’s disease or dementia.
