Senior Helpers of Berks and Lancaster Counties Honored Alongside Over 300 Franchise Locations as the Second Ranking At-Home Care Providers
FORTUNE and Great Place to Work® Name Senior Helpers to 2019 Best Workplaces for Aging Services List
September 25, 2019 // Franchising.com // EPHRATA, PA - Fortune Magazine has named Senior Helpers®, the nation’s premier provider of in-home senior care, one of the Best Places to Work in the country in the Aging Services category. Out of 50 companies featured on the Aging Services list, Senior Helpers ranked second among at-home care providers. Senior Helpers is the highest ranked national company in our category. Senior Helpers of Berks and Lancaster Counties helped comprise the overall assessment and recognition through their outstanding work in the local community.
This is the third accolade Senior Helpers has received in 2019. In May, Senior Helpers was named the first and only national in-home senior care provider to achieve Great Place to Work® certification. Last month, the company was recognized as one of the Best Workplaces in the state of New York by FORTUNE magazine. A primary driver of these awards has been the positive Senior Helpers culture. With over 300 locations nationwide, Senior Helpers is a mission-driven company that is laser-focused on providing compassionate care and improving the quality of life for seniors and their families.
The Best Places to Work in Aging Services recognition is based on an evaluation of more than 60 elements of the team member experience, using feedback from anonymous surveys sent to more than 223,183 employees in Senior Housing & Care and At-Home Care in the Aging Services industry in the United States. Eighty-five percent of the evaluation is based on employees’ experiences of trust and reaching their full human potential as part of their organization, no matter who they are or what they do. The remaining 15 percent of the rank is based on an assessment of all employees’ daily experiences of innovation, the company’s values and the effectiveness of their leaders to ensure they’re consistently experienced.
“We are truly honored to be recognized by our team members across the nation, for creating one of the best places to work in the industry. Senior Helpers is keenly aware that prospective employees have choices, and we have implemented many workplace practices designed to attract and retain the best employees,” said Peter Ross, CEO and co-founder of Senior Helpers. “Every Senior Helpers team member understands that the work we do is vitally important. We care deeply about our clients and appreciate what our team members do every day.”
Senior Helpers operates with a vision to be the leading home care company in each community it serves. Its caregivers in Berks and Lancaster Counties are trained to offer the highest level of care possible based on the company’s Senior Gems® Alzheimer’s and dementia care program. As the highest measure of excellence in personalized in-home senior care, the program was developed in conjunction with nationally recognized dementia care expert Teepa Snow, Positive Approach, LLC. Local residents will also benefit from the company’s 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.
