At Seniors Helping Seniors® - Texas Hill Country, we have a passion for meeting the needs of seniors in a way that provides both dignity and a sense of camaraderie. Our franchise owner(s) Fran and Joe Baker firmly believe we can do that through serving seniors in our Central Texas community, which includes: West & South Austin, Hays County and Caldwell County.
Our Seniors Helping Seniors® Core Values
We match seniors who need a hand with mature, active women and men who have a passion for helping others. Seniors Helping Seniors® in-home services was founded in 1998 with two simple ideas:
- Seniors can help each other age more happily and gracefully.
- Seniors who give, and those who receive, benefit equally.
- An experienced, reliable resource for seniors who want to stay in their own homes.
- In-home care, companionship, and services from seniors who enjoy helping others.
- Reasonable hourly rates for seniors who want care and companionship.
- Reasonable hourly wages to seniors who want to provide these services.
While we raise our family here in the beautiful Hill Country of Austin, TX our parents are thousands of miles away. We can’t be there to provide help with simple daily activities or even just play games and socialize with them. We know that a little companionship and help around the house could mean the difference between remaining independent or moving into assisted living. Many of our Central Texas neighbors are in a similar situation. When families are separated, who helps the aging parent? When families are near, stress on family caregivers is a genuine concern. Seniors Helping Seniors® is meant to help both the parent and the family caregivers...we empathize with the need and we are proud to offer these services for our community.
About Our Founders
Seniors Helping Seniors® in-home care service was co-founded by Kiran and Philip Yocom in order to realize Kiran’s personal mission of providing care for those who can’t care for themselves. Before coming to the United States from India, Kiran worked with Mother Teresa for 14 years.
How We've Grown
From our roots in Pennsylvania, and our first match in 1998, Seniors Helping Seniors® in-home services has grown to include hundreds of locations in the US and Internationally. We continue to grow and evolve, adding new services to better assist seniors and refining our caregiver training as new industry best practices come to light.
