Home Helpers Commits to 3,000 Vets and Service Dependents by Veterans Day 2018


Company CEO cites commitmentto service, sacrifice.

Cincinnati - Home Helpers, the leading brand for in-home care for seniors and others seeking an independent lifestyle, has committed to adding 3,000 veterans and military dependents to its workforce by Veterans Day 2018.

“Service members and their families have an obvious commitment to duty and service,” said Emma Dickison, CEO of Home Helpers. Armed forces families already are top performers across our network, and we want to do everything we can to attract more veterans, service members and their families to our brand.”

The families of active service members often have difficulty finding long-term employment in the communities where they are stationed. In fact, Blue Star Families, a nonprofit that advocates for armed forces families, noted that military spouses have an unemployment rate four times the national average. Their pursuit of suitable employment can be complicated by frequent relocations as well as the extra demands that fall on the home front spouse during long deployments.

“This is not only an expression of gratitude for their service, past or present, it’s a recognition of the skills and discipline they’ve demonstrated. It’s a business decision for us to attract the best talent to Home Helpers,” Dickison said.

Because Home Helpers Caregivers receive exceptional training, the company believes it can create an opportunity for employment stability for families who experience a change of station. That training includes specialized instruction in Alzheimer’s and dementia care, mobility for the disabled, and organizing households for independent living. Home Helpers operates in more than 900 communities across the United States including Alma, Barling, Booneville, Charleston, Clarksville, Fort Smith, Greenwood, Hackett, Huntington, Lavaca, Mansfield, Mountainburg, Mulberry, Ozark, Paris, Rudy, Van Buren and Waldron, Arkansas.

Among the qualities that Home Helpers finds valuable in veterans and service families are their commitment to a mission of service, understanding of sacrifice, compassion and community spirit. In addition, their personal motivation and accountability are traits that any employer would find valuable. Home Helpers cares for the most vulnerable members of its client’s families, those characteristics and values are in high demand. “They understand commitment and that’s essential in the responsibility that Caregivers take on,” Dickison said.
