Senior Helpers® in Lakeland, FL to Host Caregiver Recruitment Day, October 23

Leading In-Home Senior Care Provider Aims to Hire 15 High-Quality Caregivers to Increase Resources for its Aging Clients

Lakeland, FL

Senior Helpers®, the nation’s premier provider of in-home senior care services, today announced it will host a company-wide National Recruitment Day event on Tuesday, October 23. In an effort to encourage passionate, friendly CNA’s and HHA’s to consider a rewarding caregiving career, Senior Helpers of Lakeland, FL joins Senior Helpers locations around the U.S. with the goal of adding 15 new caregivers to their team in the Polk County area. The Caregiver Recruitment Day is designed to find individuals to fit the role through interviews and several other organized community outreach activities.  There are currently 50 million seniors in the United States—the largest aging population this country has ever seen, and this event underscores the company’s commitment to building a strong infrastructure and nationwide network of trusted, loyal caregivers to care for them.

“The demand for senior care has never been greater and we need to hire more caregivers to continue to provide the kind of quality care our elderly population needs,” said Jorge Giraldo, MBA, CEO/Owner of Senior Helpers of Lakeland, FL “At Senior Helpers, we want to inspire people to join a rapidly growing industry that’s also very personally rewarding. Participating in our National Caregiver Recruitment Day will allow us to add to our growing team of caring, compassionate professionals who help our clients and their families improve their quality of life during the aging process, maintain peace of mind and enjoy independence in their own homes.”

For many Americans, the availability of well-trained, reliable and safe caregivers represents the elderly’s best, and perhaps only, option to achieve the goal of aging with dignity at home.  According to AARP, aging at home, and not in an institution, is the goal of approximately 90 percent of elderly Americans. Senior Helpers helps to deliver this level of personalized care to seniors throughout Lakeland, by continually fortifying its network with highly trained caregivers who have passed rigorous background checks.

“Our mission is to improve quality of life through dedicated care,” said Giraldo. “We provide comprehensive training and certification opportunities for all of our caregivers, including our 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. The company also offers a 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.
