The Helper Bees is a new model for senior in-home care that removes the middleman and hands the power of choice back to the senior or their family. The Helper Bees match private-duty helpers with seniors who need care based upon personality, interests and experience. Seniors enjoy a higher quality of care with cost savings while the helper earns more than they would with a traditional agency. The Helper Bees’ matchmaking technology makes this process very simple.
Helper Bees may be caregivers, run errands, do housework, or simply sit and share a good story. They are dedicated to being as helpful as possible. Helpers work with seniors and family members to determine the best level of care. Together you will create a predictable schedule and make sure all needs are defined and addressed. This way both seniors and their family members can rest easy knowing a Helper Bee has everything covered.
Helper Bees understand what it is like to have a difficult day, and they approach their work with the utmost kindness and respect. Aging, and the challenges that come along with it, can be tiring and frustrating. Helpers understand how to help seniors cope on difficult days, and they have been known to uplift more than a few spirits along the way.
What makes our helpers truly special is how much they appreciate the friendships that bloom from their service. They appreciate how much friendship enriches both their lives and the lives of those in their care. From these friendships grow bonds created across afternoons of small talk, story-telling and shared advice across generations. For our bees, being a helper is not just a job, it is truly a joy and passion.
The Helper Bees matching experts create a great match based on your individual needs and preferences. They create a custom profile for the senior needing assistance and then match your needs and preferences with 2-3 great caregivers among our hive of helpers. YOU choose the best helper for you. We then arrange for you to meet to verify that a perfect match has been made! We have a 95% successful matching rate.
As part of the process to be listed on our helper bee registry, each independent helper will have two background checks performed. Background checks are done through the Texas Department of Public Safety, as well as the Texas Nurses Misconduct Registry. We believe in hiring only the highest quality helpers. All background checks are free to the senior or their family.
