Downingtown

In Home Care, Senior Care Experts

We opened Home Helpers in July 2003, providing Senior Care, New Moms and Working Parents, Recuperative Care and/or Continuing Care services to our community. Since 2003, we have served over 175 clients in  the Chester and Lancaster Counties.

Ron and Peg Galipeau have spent more than 20 years in Berks County area,  we began to see how many families could appreciate a helpful hand.

As a young girl I remember visiting my grandmother at the nursing home. I didn’t like the depressing feeling of the facility, my grandmother’s sadness when saying goodbye and the guilt my family felt at not being able to care for her at home. My mother always was caring and giving of her time to care for members of the family and the neighbors. I saw the difference she made in their lives.  I decided to make a career change. After working as a EMT and a billing manager for Exeter Ambulance for 16 years I didn’t know what I wanted to be when I grew up, and now I can truly say I have found Home Helpers to be a perfect match. It feels like we can make a difference in alot of lives.

"Dear Home Helpers, I just want to say how wonderful your caregivers have been.  I find it amazing that you’ve managed to find wonderful matches for my mother, and how much she has come to look forward to visits. 
i also appreciate the phone call I receive from your office when there is any change in the routine and keeping me in the loop on everything."

"Dear Home Helpers, I have just finished my physical therapy.  I wanted to thank you for all your help in transporting me here and there.  I always knew I could count on you every morning.  It was therapeutic to be able to get out and around.  My drivers and I always enjoyed our time together, even though we had a long ride every time. Thank you again."
