Senior Helpers of Northern Delaware

Since 2007, Senior Helpers in Hockessin has been providing professional and dependable in-home care to seniors throughout northern Delaware.

We strive to provide the best care possible and we have a strong commitment to ensure the finest individualized one-on-one care available. We believe that consistency of care is one way to achieve this. Care delivered by the same caregiver or caregiver team promotes a continuous caring relationship to develop between our clients and caregivers.

We are a Certified Senior Gems® office. Our caregivers receive extensive on-going training on Alzheimer's/Dementia care utilizing our special Senior Gems®, a proprietary program developed by Senior Helpers and dementia care and dementia education specialist Teepa Snow.
