More than 90% of seniors want to age in their own home with dignity but getting the right type of care can seem daunting. At Senior Helpers of Polk County we believe getting the best care for your loved ones should not be complicated. Jorge Giraldo MBA opened the Senior Helpers of Polk County office in 2008 because of his passion for helping others and his interest in the growing need for in-home care services. Jorge Giraldo, MBA is committed to delivering the best possible in-home care to seniors in the Polk County community.

We take the opportunity to provide in-home care seriously and make it a priority to provide the highest level of client service possible. Over the past 15+ years we have built an exceptional team of care professionals, each committed to remaining at the forefront of the in-home care industry through our proprietary ongoing training and education programs.

Our process

The first step in the process is a complimentary, initial in-home care assessment with a Senior Helpers consultant. This assessment can help you understand the true needs of your loved one, and your options. Together we can discuss their needs, our senior care services and determine what’s best for your entire family.

We will cover:

  • Your family’s specific goals
  • Your loved one’s daily plan design and schedule
  • Pricing and payment methods
  •  Implementation process
  • Ongoing communication and follow-up plan

Our History

Jorge Giraldo, MBA, has always had a special place for the elderly in his heart. He fondly remembers his late grandmothers and other elderly family members and the many stories they told him as a young boy. He also sadly remembers the time when his grandmother was bed bound after a stroke and how difficult that was for the family. Fast forward another 10 years and Jorge watched his family care for his aunt, who lived with Alzheimer’s for many years. She went from a smart, independent and strong woman to needing help with daily activities. It took a toll on the family, especially his own mother who stayed with her many sleepless nights. This experience shaped the longing to help others so they too wouldn’t have to see their family’s health deteriorate as they selflessly cared for their loved ones. There had to be a professional service to ease this intense family burden- alas, Senior Helpers was the way he could make a difference, even if not with his own family from years ago, but for countless families well into the future!

Our team has grown over the years thanks to the wonderful referrals we receive from our community partners. We work hard to ensure our clients and caregivers are well taken care of, each and every one of our team members and clients are very important to us. We have been lucky to serve hundreds of seniors in our community over the years, and we are committed to continuing to provide excellent service to our aging population for many more years!
