Declared an essential health service as a home health agency, Senior Helpers®, one of the nation’s premier providers of personalized in-home senior care, today announced its locations across Northern Colorado, including Fort CollinsLaporte and Greeley, will bolster its corps of caregivers to support local seniors and their families. Further, Senior Helpers of Northern Colorado has partnered with several local businesses to produce and deliver meals to families in need throughout its communities.

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), seniors are exceptionally vulnerable to the novel Coronavirus and should avoid being out in public. This situation makes in-home care one of the safest options available for seniors today. As a result of the community’s growing needs, Senior Helpers will immediately add up to 15 new caregivers across its regional franchise network, to include personal care workers and home health aides that will complement its existing team of professionally trained in-home senior care experts.

“We know that older adults and their families need tremendous support in keeping elderly loved ones healthy and safe during this global pandemic, and we are committed to offering this essential service safely in their homes,” said Gil Atanasoff, owner and executive director at Senior Helpers of Northern Colorado. “Our community can rest assured knowing the Senior Helpers team is dedicated to offering premier in-home care and that we will do so with proper precaution.”

Additionally, Senior Helpers of Northern Colorado, together with FoCo Café, Jay’s Bistro, Fort Collins Delivery Network, The Alternative Board – Northern Colorado, Me Oh My Café and Mill City Church, is coordinating meal deliveries and pickup sites to support families in need.  The company has also collaborated with Me Oh My Café and Mill City Church to set up pickup points for local families to safely obtain meals to take home. The initiative began Easter Sunday with a brunch menu consisting of Glazed Ham & Herb-crusted Leg of Lamb, Bistro Potatoes, Deviled Eggs and much more, and FoCo Café anticipates delivering meals ongoing to those in need within the community during these uncertain times. The organizations delivered over 250 meals on Easter Sunday alone.

Senior Helpers of Northern Colorado and its caregivers are available to continue providing immediate care and support for the local senior community and their families. Senior Helpers will continue to be transparent with any new developments and will provide any further updates as necessary. For more information on Senior Helpers of Northern Colorado and how to apply, please visit https://www.seniorhelpers.com/co/fort-collins/careers.
