Senior Helpers Acquires Shipyard Home

Health Care

 Philosophy of Care and Pool of Talented Caregivers Brings New Resources to South Shore

July 12, 2019. Newton, MA. Mark Friedman, owner of Senior Helpers Boston and South Shore, has announced the acquisition of Shipyard Home Health Care of Hingham, MA.
Shipyard, a private duty home care agency, has been owned and operated by Lauren Gregory since 2014 and has provided  companionship and non-medical support services to seniors on the South Shore.

Friedman’s two Senior Helpers offices currently serve 75 communities in the Metro-Boston, Metro-West and South Shore areas. Friedman cites, “Lauren comes from a PT background and understands the importance of having a clinical, case-driven philosophy of care; which also translates to the need for rigorously trained HHA and CNA caregivers, and customized client-centric care plans. Merging her pool of caregivers brings added depth of resources to us on the South Shore.”  

 “As healthcare has become more complex, so has the ability of seniors to age in place,” Friedman contends, “we value our relationships with aging life care experts, social workers, legal and other referring professionals because they too bring a lot of perspective to the journey of aging as we now see it.” 
Safety is one of 5 Risk Dimensions of the LIFE Profile

From Lauren Gregory’s perspective the sale of her agency is a win-win as well.
While at Shipyard Gregory was an active caregiver; often taking a full client shift to learn first-hand the issues facing seniors, especially around increasingly complex diagnoses requiring more highly skilled caregiving.
After supporting the transition and integration into Senior Helpers, Gregory's future includes  nursing school, asserting, “I have fallen in love with the senior industry and home care. With a nursing degree, and enriched knowledge, my real contributions in home care still lie ahead of me.”  

Senior Helpers® Boston and South Shore has offices in Newton and Norwell, Massachusetts. Founded in 2009, its nurse-led model of care effectively helps its clients Age in Place.

In 2018 Friedman introduced the LIFE Profile™; a proprietary methodology that assesses a senior’s risk across more than 225 critical factors. This creates a customized profile for aging at home; providing guidelines for care and support that are strategic and focused – removing the factors that stand in the way of achieving success.   

In 2019 the Great Place to Work® Institute recognized Senior Helpers® as a Great Place to Work; laser-focused on helping older adults age with dignity, employing over 250 Certified Nursing Assistants  / Home Health Aides, and creating a culture based on strong core values, recognition of achievements and respect.

The Senior Helpers Senior Gems® Alzheimer’s and Dementia care program was developed in conjunction with nationally recognized dementia care expert Teepa Snow, Positive Approach, LLC. The company also offers a Parkinson’s Care Program created in conjunction with leading experts from the Parkinson’s Foundation’s Centers of Excellence network.
