BALTIMORE, April 25, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Senior Helpers®, the nation's premier provider of in-home senior care services, today announced its participation in the Department of Defense Military Spouse Employment Partnership.

According to the U.S. Chamber of Commerce Foundation, there are more than six hundred thousand active duty military spouses and they face unique career challenges. Military spouses are typically employed at lower rates and earn less than their civilian counterparts. Moreover, military life comes with frequent moves, operational deployments and long hours away that impose significant stress on families. These conditions negatively impact employment opportunities for military spouses.

"Military spouses are unsung heroes," said Peter Ross, CEO and co-founder of Senior Helpers. "We're honored to work alongside organizations effecting positive change through economic empowerment initiatives that assist our nation's military families. We aim to encourage all military spouses to consider a career in caregiving, because it's not only rewarding and gratifying but also flexible. They have a home with Senior Helpers."

Founded in 2002, Senior Helpers operates with a vision to be the leading home care company, serving military, their families and veterans. Its caregivers are fully trained and certified to offer the highest level of care possible based on the company's Senior Gems® Alzheimer's and dementia care program. As the gold standard for excellence in personalized in-home senior care, the program was developed in conjunction with nationally recognized dementia care expert Teepa Snow, Positive Approach, LLC. The company also offers a Parkinson's Care Program, a specialized training program for their caregivers created in conjunction with leading experts from the Parkinson's Foundation's Centers of Excellence network.
