Leading Senior Care Provider Continues Making Strides to Address Challenges and Promote Positive Health in Older Adults
BALTIMORE, Feb. 27, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Senior Helpers®, the nation's premier provider of in-home senior care, has announced that the company was recently appointed to the Healthcare Leadership Council (HLC), an exclusive alliance of leading healthcare companies from all health sectors committed to advancing the American healthcare system. As the HLC's first member specializing in in-home senior care, Senior Helpers aims to share valuable insights and ultimately help to provide improvements in the quality of care to the elderly and work in tandem with HLC to elevate care options to seniors across the U.S.
"We are honored to be invited to become part of the prestigious Healthcare Leadership Council and represent the senior care industry while working with some of the most forward-thinking and well-respected leaders in healthcare," said Peter Ross, CEO and co-founder, Senior Helpers. "Our joining the HLC further demonstrates our long-standing commitment to helping transform senior care nationwide, and taking an important step toward improving health and driving high-quality care for all seniors, despite age-related illnesses and mobility challenges."
The HLC is well-known by congressional members and staff as an integral source for comprehensive information on key health issues. As a HLC member, Senior Helpers will advocate measures to increase the cost-effectiveness of senior healthcare by emphasizing wellness and prevention and care coordination, while utilizing consumer choice and competition to elevate value. With the nation's growing and aging population, the baby boomer generation in particular is experiencing a higher volume of healthcare needs, demanding an increase in healthcare services. Senior Helpers will work with the HLC to ensure a better quality of life for seniors and their families by leading the way and providing dependable and affordable care.
"The Healthcare Leadership Council is comprised of a select number of innovative companies from all health sectors that are transforming our nation's healthcare system," said Mary R. Grealy, HLC president. "We are thrilled to have Peter Ross and Senior Helpers as members. The company is successfully addressing some of the most important challenges facing an aging society, among them enabling people with health needs to live independently at home and providing care to the increasing number of Americans struggling with Alzheimer's disease and dementia. In our country's ongoing effort to improve both the quality and cost-efficiency of healthcare, we can learn a great deal from the strides taking place at Senior Helpers."
