BALTIMORE, Oct. 27, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Senior Helpers®, the nation's premier provider of in-home senior care, today announced the company has been purchased by Altaris Capital Partners, LLC, a leading national investment firm focused exclusively on the healthcare industry. The acquisition will help to accelerate growth and expansion, both domestically and globally, for the Timonium, Maryland-based franchisor, which currently operates more than 285 franchise locations across the United States, Canada and Australia. One of the company's primary strategies for growth will be through the acquisition of local, private in-home care companies.
"With the considerable growth of the aging population, the need for in-home senior care is at an all-time high," said Peter Ross, CEO and co-founder of Senior Helpers. "We're excited to join Altaris' robust healthcare portfolio, which we know will help to fuel our growth and help us to continue providing best-in-class personal care and companion services to seniors who wish to live in the comfort of their own homes. With this move, we're primed to bring many more in-home care companies under the Senior Helpers umbrella and expand into new territories worldwide."
