What Our Families and Seniors Are Saying
Seniors helping seniors was so helpful to our family. We started using them when my mother was 96 years old. She just turned 100 and her caregiver Tammie is just fantastic. Mom was always fiercely independent and determined to stay in her home. SHS provided the support she needed to realize her wishes. We highly recommend their service.
What a true Godsend this organization was to the care and comfort of our 97 year old mother. At first our mother was skeptical of having a stranger come into her home. She was matched with Mary, who was so kind and caring, and they became close friends. Mary was also extremely patient and reliable. We never had to worry during the time she was with our mother, and that relieved a lot of stress off our shoulders. We would highly recommend using this service.
This organization was a life saver for us and a complete answer to prayers! My 90 year old mother desperately wanted to stay in her home but needed more assistance and time than we were able to give her. This group was recommended to us and I must say from the very start, their kindness and willingness to work with us on whatever we needed was absolutely OUTSTANDING! Lurene Reck was wonderful in answering all of our questions and concerns and worked side by side with us in setting up the perfect schedule for our needs. She paired my mother with the most perfect lady we could have ever hoped for…Daphne! She became part of our family and she and my mother have since forged a friendship that will last a lifetime. I very HIGHLY recommend this organization if you want a truly peaceful transition into assisted care for your loved one within their home. They go above and beyond to meet individual needs which is so important. Call them today if you are trying to make difficult decisions…. You will be so glad you did! I know we certainly are!
When researching care for my Mom, who was living independently, Seniors Helping Seniors was among those recommended. I immediately found a compassionate ear and understanding CEO, Lurene. Everything is handled on a personal level. Lurene seeks out a best match for her clients and takes the time to introduce them before they begin work. Most agencies do not do this and it makes all the difference. We started with a single caregiver who developed a genuine bond with Mom. They enjoyed each other and Mom looked forward to the visits. Eventually, this grew to needing six Helpers over a period of a year and a half. Each and every one was special, went the extra distance to do for Mom, and took an active role in helping me help Mom. As Mom became more ill, needed more care, I tried another agency and had to let them go. I highly recommend, and have done so with many friends, Seniors Helping Seniors. They have been there, they understand, they are well trained. They are just the best! We can not thank them enough for their loving care.
Seniors helping Seniors was such a blessing to my mother! Linda and Lisa were able to connect with her in a way that gave her companionship and lots of help with her apartment without making her feel like she couldn't do it herself. Being able to get out after she stopped driving was wonderful for her mental health as well!! Thoughtful, caring, reliable and consistent!
Our mother was having difficulty getting meals prepared and eating a healthy diet. She also wasn't able to drive anymore. Lurene found the perfect friend for Mother. Mary cooked for Mom and her eating chicken again. Mary would come up with recipes for Mom that would include healthy foods that Mom had been missing.
They had so much special time together. Mom looked so forward to Mary's visits. They would share conversation over a cup of coffee. After a trip to an appointment, Mom and Mary would share an occasional lunch date. They were the perfect match and Mary couldn't have been a better friend.
Seniors Helping Seniors was such a wonderful option for us. Lurene took the time to meet with us one on one and did a fabulous job pairing up my mom with a caring, reliable, flexible senior, Lois, who we adored. The daily help she provided for a year enabled us to keep mom living independently in her own home and bought us the much needed time before moving her to memory care. We will always be thankful for their help!
