• Senior Helpers franchise opens
• “Most seniors and families do not know that help is just a phone call away”
A franchise of Senior Helpers, an in-home senior care company, has opened in Madera and owner Conny Gordeau says she hopes to hire as many as 100 care providers.
The new franchise will market its services to senior citizens and their families in Madera, Fresno, Merced, and Mariposa counties.
“There is such a need for senior care, and most seniors and families do not know that help is just a phone call away,” says Ms. Gordeau, owner of Senior Helpers of the Central Valley.
She says she speaks from personal experience. “My sister became the primary care giver for our mom before she passed and provided excellent care,” she says.
Founded in 2001, Senior Helpers caregivers are fully trained and certified in the company’s Alzheimer’s and dementia care program, which it says is endorsed by the Alzheimer’s Foundation of America and can also come under the company’s new Parkinson’s care program, a specialized training and certification program created in conjunction with leading experts from the National Parkinson Foundation’s Center of Excellence.
“We’re pleased to welcome Conny to our team as the newest Senior Helpers franchise owner,” says Chris Buitron, chief marketing officer for Senior Helpers, which says it has over 270 franchised businesses. “Conny brings a passion for her community and an understanding of the importance of in-home senior care to her new role.”
