Our Origin Story
The creation of Helping Hands derived from the founder who had a very strong desire to help his own mother with day to day fundamental living challenges. It became apparent she needed even more assistance when she was diagnosed with Alzheimer Dementia in 2009.
He began attending seminars on aging and Alzheimer’s in particular, as he wanted to be sure she was living a fulfilling safe and happy life. With his own family to take care of and busy siblings, he realized she needed a network of trusted, reliable people to drive her places; go shopping for her; do her laundry and help clean up around her house.
In addition, she had multiple medications that she took first thing in the morning, during the day, and at night. It was critical to be sure the correct dosages were dispensed in their distinctive containers for specific times of day. And to make it even more complicated like many other senior’s, her medication required someone to be there everyday to exchange her medicine patch and assist in loading and dispensing her inhaler medication.
All of these varied yet vital needs proved to be difficult for the Helping Hands founder and his family to manage every day, he realized there is a large senior community and their children that face these same needs every day. Helping Hands was founded in a commitment to providing critical services for the senior community and temporary or permanently physically challenged individuals that continues today.

Do you know at 99 years old you can still make new friends. I have become good friends with Rick the owner of Helping Hands Group.
