Senior Helpers Franchise Business Adds Expert Trainer
Recognized dementia trainer Kathryn Erskine has joined leading elder care provider Senior Helpers as a franchisee. Her new location will be in the City of San Gabriel Valley in California.
Erskine comes to the senior care franchise business with more than two decades of experience at the university level as an education specialist, where she trained other teachers to understand and recognize the learning abilities and needs of students. This experience, Erskine says, will help her prepare a stellar training experience for her Senior Helpers caregivers.
Senior Helpers Vice President of Marketing Chris Buitron echoed Erskine's sentiment, noting that Senior Helpers is proud to announce she's joining their franchise and that her background will make her a standout franchisee.
According to Erskine, the difference between a good caregiver and an outstanding one is the type of education and training he or she has received. The new franchisee believes Senior Helpers' personalized certification and training for caregivers for conditions such as Parkinson's, dementia and Alzheimer's ensures its clients receive the best care possible.
To take advantage of the Senior Helpers franchise opportunity, Erskine moved from England to the southern part of California. The Senior Helpers of San Gabriel Valley franchisee spoke about her passion for improving the care and quality of life for seniors in the local community, adding that she looks forward to serving seniors and their families in the Southern California community.
