Local In-home Senior Care Company to Bring Upwards of 75 New Jobs to the Area 

Senior Helpers®, one of the nation’s premier providers of personalized in-home senior care, announced the official opening of its Reading, PA location, managed and operated by Cody Johnson. The new franchise will serve senior citizens and their families in Wyomissing, Sinking Spring, Shillington and the surrounding areas, and it hopes to bring more than 75 new jobs to the region over the next year. The Reading location joins nine existing Senior Helpers locations in Pennsylvania and its professionally trained caregivers will help local seniors continue to enjoy the comfort of their own home despite age-related illnesses and mobility challenges.

“Through the wide variety of services that Senior Helpers provides, our caregivers will be able to have a lasting, life-changing impact on seniors who need companionship and specialized care,” said Cody. “In-home care allows seniors in the community to age safely in the comfort of their own homes, surrounded by loved ones and treasured tokens from their life. I’m incredibly excited to bring these much-needed resources to elderly living in the community, as well as give seniors and their families a home care option they can feel good about for years to come.”

Johnson brings 10 years of experience in customer relations, management and team building to the Senior Helpers team. He witnessed firsthand how his wife’s grandmother benefitted from in-home family care and is passionate about being able to bring that level of comfort to seniors and their families in the Reading area. Johnson hopes this new location will help improve the overall quality of life for seniors who wish to remain at home, comfortably and safely.

Senior Helpers operates with a vision to be the leading home care company in each community it serves. Its caregivers at the Reading, PA location are trained to offer the highest level of care possible based on the company’s 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. Local residents will also benefit from the company’s 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.

“We’re thrilled to welcome Cody to the Senior Helpers team,” said Peter Ross, chief executive officer, Senior Helpers. “His dedication to ensuring that seniors in the area receive the highest quality care, combined with his desire to deepen community relationships and create lasting impact, will be incredibly valuable for seniors and their families living in Reading and the surrounding areas.”

The newest Senior Helpers franchise office is located at 840 N. Park Road, Suite 105 in Wyomissing, PA 19610.
