Seniors Helping Seniors keeping clients safe and well throughout Covid-19

Since it was established in 1998, Seniors Helping Seniors has grown very steadily. We work with trusted partners who become pillars of their communities.

Our motive is to help as many people as possible with valuable local work and to provide elderly care people enjoy and feel good about receiving. The pandemic has been a strong confirmation of the company’s policies.

The task of isolating when they are not at work has been more straight forward for Seniors Helping Seniors carers than it has been for carers living in bustling families. Seniors Helping Seniors carers are experts by experience.  By the time they have the experience the company looks for they are likely to be ‘empty nesters’ and live in small family units. Tiny contact circles put the company in a safer position with COVID-19.

The company had an app developed so carers reported their health status before every client visit. Every carer and client stayed well and had peace of mind.

The policy is to provide the same carer to each client, so the risks are low for each person. Even when the client requires several visits a day, schedules involve a very small team of carers. The ratio is very low and the carers trust that they are safe at work. PPE was bought in on a daily basis

Everyone is grateful for Seniors Helping Seniors services and going forward we are prepared for unprecedented numbers. On one hand, our clients are part of the highest-risk group. On the other hand, if they’re home self-isolating, they need someone to check on them and to provide essential services. There’s this perception now that facility-based care is less safe. Home care is the alternative” reports Daniel Jan, VP operations, Seniors Helping Seniors Global.

Seniors Helping Seniors have over 300 franchises worldwide, five in England.  The brand is well-recognised and trusted as a world-leader in providing non-medical care for older people in their own homes and specialist employment for older people. 

Seniors Helping Seniors employment strategies are unique and award winning. Seniors Helping Seniors UK is part of government initiative to help people who are often distanced from work into employment and “even though COVID-19 is responsible for millions of job losses, the quality of our applicants remains outstanding. It’s a source of great pride to all our offices that we can offer amazing people well paid work they love to do” says Christian Wilse, Seniors Helping Seniors UK.
