As I write this blog, I am troubled by the regrettable resurgence of COVID-19 cases in Florida. It has only been three months since the novel coronavirus reared its ugly head and forced our communities to shutdown to slow the spread. At that time, the most vulnerable population consisted of seniors, age 65 and older; and most especially, those with underlying health issues.
As the local and state economies reopened, and quarantine-weary residents began emerging from lockdown, many individuals – primarily, younger folks – failed to follow guidelines set-forth by the Center for Disease Control and Prevention [CDC]. Images on the news showed few wearing masks and virtually no social distancing at bars and beaches. These behaviors provided the virus plenty of willing “hosts” to infect, resulting in significant spikes in transmission rates and positive tests.
I understand that people want to get back to life, but seniors are still the most vulnerable population to contract, suffer from, and succumb to the coronavirus, and it’s important they understand that it is not just residents in nursing homes and assisted living facilities who fall victim!
Now, more than ever, seniors with physical and mental health conditions should remain safe and healthier in their homes to avoid being contaminated with the virus. As a non-medical, in-home care provider in the Clearwater area for more than ten years, Home Helpers® employs highly-skilled and compassionate caregivers to serve and help protect seniors in need of assistance.
Home Helpers® caregivers are exceptionally-trained to provide many types of services, including but not limited to:
- Alzheimer’s & Dementia Care
- Companion Care
- Homemaker Services
- Meals & Nutrition
- Personal Care
- Recuperative Care
- Respite Care
- Support & Stroke Recovery
- Wellness Calls
The caregivers and staff I employ are the cream of the crop, and it shows in these reviews from Caring.com, an online service for family caregivers exploring trusted in-home care for seniors. The Caring.com website also provides information about reputable area assisted living facilities, nursing homes, and memory care centers, when living at home is no longer an option for elderly loved ones.
Earlier this year, we were, once again, chosen as a “Provider of Choice,” thanks to feedback from our clients, and many wonderful, 5-star online reviews. It is really quite humbling to know our clients and their family members have taken time out of their days to express thanks and share their personal experiences about working with Home Helpers® caregivers. These awesome sentiments equate to much-needed and welcome accolades for those who often perform thankless work.
I invite you to read a few of the 5-star reviews Home Helpers® Clearwater has received from our clients and their family members:
Home Helpers provided exceptional service to my sister. Before moving to an assisted living community, a caregiver would come to her home and help with a variety of activities. The caregiver was always on time and was very professional. She was treated with compassion and constant attention. If there were any changes in her care, these would be done promptly. Home Helpers would be an asset to anyone would require assistance. I highly recommend the services of Home Helpers.
She cleaned the bathroom and kitchen floors. She did things for us I couldn't do myself. My caregivers have been very friendly.

I think they saved her life. They are there. She was released from the hospital by herself with dementia. She got the care she needed and food. She was going around the neighborhood begging for food before. I like their responsiveness. If there is ever an issue, they are quick to respond.
There are certain things I just can't do, and they help with that. They do an excellent job of matching a helper to myself and my needs. If the person can't be here, they will make sure I will have someone.
I don't know how they could be better. They help me get dressed and do my exercises. They do all the good stuff that is a pain that I don't want to do. They come in and make sure I do it. The two people have done an excellent job. They will accommodate us when we need to change the time. They have been very good.
LOVE, LOVE, LOVE!!! Our family LOVES this company! They respond quickly to all phone calls and requests! We have LOVED each caregiver that has been sent to our home! We would not have been able to keep my in-laws in our home as long as we did without HH help! Thank you HH!!!
I have peace of mind knowing there are caring people there to help my mom. They go above and beyond with their care. I really appreciate how they check on mom during bad weather, etc. to make sure she is OK and doesn't need help. I also greatly appreciate the emails and phone calls with progress reports on my mom's condition.
The caregivers keep her company and make sure she is okay during the day. They provide very good care. They are efficient and responsive.
It lifts a lot for me as I work full-time, my mom is able to live in her house. They seem to be genuine.
It makes my daily life easier. That is a big difference to a 70 year-old man who has never done this before. We only use one caregiver from them, but she is quite timely and we can depend on her.
Without them she wouldn't be there. They are caring, compassionate people, well trained, and reliable.
They are giving me excellent care after I have just gotten out of the hospital. I like the people that they send over.
Home Helpers provides great people, great service, and they are a great resource. They seem to always be there when you need them and have a true passion for what they are doing.
Compassionate, caring and well-qualified staff to attend to your loved ones.Dependable and efficient individuals who are well-trained.
