Tampa Bay Newspapers: Seniors Helping Seniors Enjoying Success in Florida

The seniors care brand was featured regarding their plans to grow in the sunshine state and open an additional 30 units.

Since founded in 1998, Seniors Helping Seniors was created with an idea of employing active seniors to support non-active seniors, according to Vice President of Operations Daniel Jan.  The brand currently has 200 open locations across 30-plus states and 6 international operations. According to the article, the concept began in the northeast, however the franchise model proved to be a perfect fit for Florida as a large amount of senior citizens reside in the area. “They like the fact that we provide quality care for them, and it gives the family peace of mind they’re being cared for by people who care about them”, Jan says. 

Tampa Bay Newspaper lists the services that include housekeeping, running errands, assistance with personal and pet care, dementia and Alzheimer’s care, and more. “The number one thing is we’re exclusively focused on hiring retired and semi-retired individuals,” said Andy Malivuk, who’s been running the Pinellas County branch of Seniors Helping Seniors from the Carillon Office Park since 2017. “We’re putting them to work in very meaningful ways and it makes them feel good to be helping others while earning a paycheck.”

Due to their success of providing comfortable in-home senior care services, the brand is really focusing on growth and expansion of their services. Jan reports to Tampa Bay Newspaper, “Recently we started our Seniors Helping Seniors 360 initiative, which is taking what we do to the next level by providing a full circle of care,” he said. “It’s basically what we do now and expanding more into the medical side of things in the next year.” 

The article states they plan to add 30 more locations in the state of Florida in the next few years. “There’s a huge need there and that need isn’t going away anytime soon, because the senior population there is only getting more dense,” Jan said.
