MILWAUKEE, Wisc. (September 28, 2022)—Senior Helpers®,the nation’s premier provider of personalized, in-home senior care, today announced the official opening of the Senior Helpers Center of Excellence in Caregiving at its Milwaukee, Wisconsin location. The Center of Excellence in Caregiving will open to the public on September 28 and serve as a comprehensive training facility where Senior Helpers-certified caregivers, family caregivers and members of the community who assist the elderly can expand their skills and knowledge of administering specialized care that is designed to meet the needs and requirements of senior citizens at various stages of aging. With the goal of elevating the overall level of care provided to the elderly in Milwaukee and the surrounding communities, the new location joins existing Senior Helpers corporate training facilities in Baltimore, Chicago, Erie and Charlotte.
“The opening of this new Center of Excellence in Milwaukee is an essential investment in our community that will not only offer the highest level of training to caregivers, but family education as well, ensuring those living in the area receive the confidence and skills needed to safely care for their loved ones,” said Leigh Ann Miller, general manager, Senior Helpers of Milwaukee. “I’m excited for the opportunity to further serve my community by providing this essential service, which will be a valuable resource alongside the other tools our office provides, such as Senior Helpers LIFE Profile and the Senior Gems® programs—all of which will help improve the quality of life of our elderly and their families.”
The new Center of Excellence in Milwaukee offers training sessions for free that are designed to mimic a realistic simulation of a client’s home, helping caregivers learn more about how to care for a client safely and confidently within the comfort of their own home. Each training session will feature a unique curriculum for different areas of care, including patient autonomy and dementia care, giving attendees hands-on experience in an apartment setting complete with a living room, bedroom, kitchen, and bathroom.
Senior Helpers operates with a vision to be the leading home care company in each community it serves and its caregivers in Milwaukee are trained to offer the highest level of care possible based on the company’s Senior Gems® Alzheimer’s and Dementia care program. The Center of Excellence in Caregiving aims to support caregivers’ professional growth and give members of the community—caregivers and those assisting elderly loved ones alike—the tools and experience to hone their caregiving skills, ensuring that local seniors can continue to enjoy the comfort of their own homes despite age-related illnesses and mobility challenges.
“We’re absolutely thrilled to be opening a Senior Helpers Center of Excellence in Caregiving at our Milwaukee location,” said Peter Ross, chief executive officer, Senior Helpers. “Leigh Ann and her team’s compassion for others and their dedication to enhance the quality of services for those in the community that need it most will be rewarding for caregivers, seniors and families living in Milwaukee County.”
