Senior Helpers, an in-home senior care provider, has opened its Tucson office and plans to add about 20 jobs this year.

The franchise, operated locally by Edward Sommer, trains caregivers in Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s and dementia care as well as day-to-day needs of seniors.

“I was drawn to Senior Helpers by the quality services it offers,” Sommer said. “Our team is proud to provide a valuable resource to our community by helping alleviate the stress associated with caregiving and ensure a better quality of life for families through personalized in-home senior care.”

The company leased 1,100 square feet at 6563 E. 22nd St. from Praise Management and is looking for caregivers and some administrative staff.
