Senior Helpers®, the nation's premier provider of in-home senior care services, today announced it will host a company-wide National Caregiver Recruitment Day event on Tuesday, October 23. In an effort to encourage passionate, friendly people to consider a rewarding caregiving career, including those with no previous caregiving experience, Senior Helpers locations around the U.S. will be hiring in droves, with the goal of bringing on 1,000 new caregivers. There are currently 50 million seniors in the United States—the largest aging population this country has ever seen, and this event underscores the company's commitment to building a strong infrastructure and nationwide network of trusted, loyal caregivers to care for them.
"The demand for senior care has never been greater and we need to hire more caregivers to continue to provide the kind of quality care our elderly population needs," said Peter Ross, CEO and co-founder of Senior Helpers. "At Senior Helpers, we want to inspire people to join a rapidly growing industry that's also very rewarding. National Caregiver Recruitment Day will open our doors to a host of passionate candidates, who in turn will service our ever-increasing senior population."
For many Americans, the availability of well-trained, reliable and safe caregivers represents the elderly's best, and perhaps only, option to achieve the goal of aging with dignity at home. According to AARP, aging at home, and not in an institution, is the goal of approximately 90 percent of elderly Americans. Senior Helpers assists to deliver this level of personalized care to tens of thousands of seniors nationally, by continually fortifying its network with highly trained caregivers who have passed rigorous background checks. Senior Helpers' National Caregiver Recruitment Day is designed to find individuals to fit the role through interviews and several other recruitment activities.
Founded in 2001, Senior Helpers operates with a vision to be the leading home care company in each community it serves. Its caregivers are fully trained and certified to offer the highest level of care possible based on the company's Senior Gems® Alzheimer's and Dementia care program. As the gold standard for excellence in personalized in-home senior care, the program was developed in conjunction with nationally recognized dementia care expert Teepa Snow, Positive Approach, LLC. The company also offers a Parkinson's Care Program, a specialized training program for their caregivers created in conjunction with leading experts from the Parkinson's Foundation's Centers of Excellence network.
