BALTIMORE, May 25, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Senior Helpers®, the nation's premier provider of in-home senior care, today announced it has been selected to receive the 2017 Caregiver Friendly® Award by Today's Caregiver, the first national magazine for all family and professional caregivers, and caregiver.com. The Caregiver Friendly® Awards are designed to celebrate products, services, books and media created with the needs of caregivers in mind.
"Being a family caregiver is an extremely challenging job—balancing work, life and caring for a loved one is no easy feat," said Chris Buitron, chief marketing officer, Senior Helpers. "We understand that family caregivers face emotional, physical and financial hardships and we aim to relieve at least some of the burden associated with caring for an elderly loved one. It is an honor to be recognized for something we at Senior Helpers are so passionate about."
Founded in 2001 with a vision to help seniors who wish to remain in their homes – despite age-related illnesses and mobility challenges – Senior Helpers serves elderly individuals and their families around the world. Senior Helpers differentiates itself with its proprietary, specialized programs that have been developed in collaboration with leading medical experts. The company was the first provider in the industry to offer specialized care services for individuals with Alzheimer's, dementia and Parkinson's disease.
"The average caregiver is responsible for over $40,000 in health related expenditures each year, in either personal or directed funds," said Gary Barg, Today's Caregiver magazine's Editor-in-Chief, "This award is designed to help family caregivers recognize and reward those organizations who will care for them in as committed a manner as they care for their loved ones."
Award winners will also be announced in the July/August 2017 issue of Today's Caregiver and on the magazine's website, caregiver.com.
