Baltimore, MD --(PR.com)-- Leading senior care expert Peter Ross was a featured guest on FOX News' Strategy Room on the pre-Mother's Day, May 7, 2010 show. Ross is the founder and CEO of Senior Helpers, the nation's fastest growing provider of in-home senior care, and was called on as an expert to discuss the subject of caring and planning ahead for aging parents.
Ross talked about his own experience with his mom and provided insight, guidance and advice for the millions of Americans facing questions about how to care for their parents as they grow older. Part of the discussion centered on Senior Helpers Navigator™, a new concept offering families a one-stop shop for services related to elderly care.
"It's an honor to be invited onto a national stage to speak about a subject very dear to my own heart," said Ross. "My own experiences helped to start Senior Helpers and are part of what led to the creation of Navigator, an entirely new service being piloted right now that will ease the burden on millions of Americans charged with caring for aging loved ones."
"Providing care for parents who can no longer do it all on their own can be a scary thing if you're not prepared," Ross added. "It's important to approach the subject and have those talks before immediate help is needed. They may not be the easiest conversations to have, but it's vital for families to be on the same page and have a plan before something happens and you don't know where to turn."
