Health Care System Stretched Thinner Than Ever Because of COVID-19


Under normal circumstances, in-home care providers and their professional caregivers are often tasked with being first to notice any changes in a person’s health. For Senior Helpers, this duty carries even more weight during the COVID-19 pandemic.

In some ways, the coronavirus outbreak has turned the home care franchise company and its locations into first-responders, Peter Ross, co-founder and CEO of Senior Helpers, told Home Health Care News.

“I kind of look at what we do as first-responders,” Ross said. “Firemen don’t go into the home and then leave when it starts burning. We’ve got to make sure that we can take care of our clients whether they have COVID-19 or not. In times of crisis, our caregivers are the first ones clients see.”
