Senior Helpers® Opens Doors in Elmwood Park, IL

March 28, 2023 // Franchising.com // Elmwood Park, IL - Senior Helpers® today announced the official opening of its Elmwood Park, IL location to be managed and operated by Jackie Vanderbilt. The new franchise will serve senior citizens and their families in the greater Chicago area, including Elmwood Park, Harwood Heights and Melrose Park, and it hopes to bring more new jobs to the region over the next year. Senior Helpers’ professionally trained caregivers will help local seniors continue to enjoy the comfort of their own home despite age-related illnesses and mobility challenges.

“After personal experience navigating the complex challenges of elder care for my grandmother, I became passionate about helping seniors live their best lives - in the place of their choosing - which led me to pursue a career in the senior care industry,” said Vanderbilt. “I’m excited to serve those who have given so much to society and assist some of our most vulnerable citizens by giving them access to high-quality, personalized and reliable care. I also hope to close the information gap in underserved communities by making information about Senior Helpers’ specialized services readily available to those in need, as well as their families.”

Vanderbilt has 18 years of experience in the financial services industry, and she is thrilled to harness her wealth of knowledge around process management, controls and human resource management in this new endeavor. Most recently, she assisted her grandmother in finding the skilled, in-home care she desired and through that journey, Jackie witnessed the frustration and overwhelming feelings that those seeking care often experience. This new location will be a valuable resource for local elderly and their families, and it will allow her passion for caregiving to flourish.

Senior Helpers operates with a vision to be the leading home care company in each community it serves. Its caregivers at the Elmwood Park location 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 gold standard for 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.

“We’re thrilled to welcome Jackie to our team as the newest Senior Helpers franchise owner,” said Peter Ross, chief executive officer, Senior Helpers. “She’s committed to making a positive impact in the community by making our services readily available, which will be extremely rewarding for elderly in Elmwood Park and the surrounding areas.”

The newest Senior Helpers franchise office is located at 1807 N. Harlem Ave, Chicago, IL 60707.
