Various nonprofits have developed progrdams to help seniors live at home. Now a for-profit company steps up

RITA A. LEONARD - The Administrator at the new Inner Southeast office of Senior Helpers on Powell Boulevard is Sarina Pasomsouk. A new commercial in-home service for seniors, "Senior Helpers", has opened at 3620 S.E. Powell Blvd., Suite 202. Franchise owner Lance Hansen started the business in downtown Portland, but has moved to the Inner Southeast location "for better parking access". Office Administrator Sarina Pasomsouk tells THE BEE that they have a staff of about 65, including a traveling Registered Nurse.

"We offer a helping hand for seniors, with personalized daily plans that promote their independence and freedom," explains Pasomsouk. "We help with everyday living activities, social interaction, transportation, housekeeping, medical monitoring, general shopping, and errands, among other services.

"We focus on senior needs – such as personal and companion care, and concerns relating to dementia and Parkinson's."

The business' core values include "responding at a moment's notice, integrity without compromise, celebrating an improved quality of life, education, and fostering a positive attitude". "Senior Helpers" is open Monday through Friday from 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m., and is available by office phone at 503/892-1189; their 24-hour response line is 503/985-2116.
