Senior Helpers Expands Franchise to Canada

In-Home Senior Care Provider to Open First Canadian Franchise Location in September

September 21, 2016 // // Baltimore, MD – Senior Helpers®, one of the nation’s premier providers of personalized in-home senior care, today announced plans to expand to Canada in an effort to offer personal care and companion services to seniors who wish to live in the comfort of their own home. Following the success of its U.S. expansion efforts, Senior Helpers will align with Stonewood Equity Fund I, who will serve as the brand’s master franchise in Canada. Together they will open the first Canadian location in the Durham Region, part of the greater Toronto area, on September 15.

“As we look to continue aggressive expansion efforts, Canada was an ideal location as there is a need in the marketplace for high-quality, affordable and dependable care,” said Craig Leonard, Senior Helpers president. “Our proven franchise model will give Stonewood Equity Fund I the tools needed to service their own communities with a proven model that provides quality care through expert training and education programs that enable their  caregivers to create personalized plans for individuals living with Alzheimer’s, Dementia and Parkinson’s.”

Through its positive approach to care, Senior Helpers aims to empower seniors living with age-related illnesses and mobility challenges by offering them the opportunity to remain in the comfort of their own home. With an emphasis on specialized training in its Parkinson’s Care Program and Senior Gems® Alzheimer’s and Dementia Training Program, Senior Helpers offers a simple three-step process for new clients including an informational call, initial in-home interview, and choosing a caregiver, to ensure families feel comfortable before any Senior Helpers caregivers step foot into their home.

“We were drawn to Senior Helpers by the quality services it offers, and the potential to be a part of a company that is known as the first in the industry to provide specialized caregiver training in Alzheimer’s, Dementia, and now, Parkinson’s disease care,” said Tennille Kerrigan, President of Stonewood Equity Fund I. “We are proud to provide a valuable resource to our community by helping to alleviate the stress associated with caregiving and ensure a better quality of life for families through personalized in-home senior care.”

Senior Helpers plans to grow to more than 60 Canadian locations over the next 10 years.
