Like many people in the field of home health, Peter Ross had a personal experience that piqued his interest and moved him into the industry. In 2002 Senior Helpers was born out of Ross’ experience with his mother. Combining his personal experience with his professional sales and marketing background, Ross has built a home care business that is focused on the importance of building relationships with referral sources and educating the public about home care. According to Ross, the success of Senior Helpers is that they aren’t trying to be the jack of all trades. By focusing on individuals with Alzheimer’s disease, dementia and Parkinson’s disease, Senior Helpers’ caregivers are specially trained to assist individuals diagnosed with these conditions, and can be more successful in helping them remain at home.
