At Seniors Helping Seniors® Northern Colorado, we have a passion for meeting the needs of seniors in a way that provides both dignity and a sense of camaraderie. Our owners Linda Gabel, Monica Londoño and Sandra Acevedo firmly believe we can do that through serving seniors in our community, which includes: Greeley, Windsor, Johnstown, Northern Longmont, Fort Collins, Loveland and surrounding areas.
Founded in 1998, Seniors Helping Seniors® in-home care matches senior caregivers with seniors who are looking for home care and home health care services. This simple concept is founded on the belief that care provided by other seniors can help seniors in-need better than anyone else. Over the years, we have grown to work with hundreds of clients, expanding our training and expertise throughout the country.
Our Seniors Helping Seniors® Core Values
We match seniors who need a hand with mature, active women and men who have a passion for helping others. Seniors Helping Seniors® was founded with two simple ideas:
Seniors can help each other age more happily and gracefully.
Seniors who give, and those who receive, benefit equally.
- An experienced, reliable resource for seniors who want to stay in their own homes.
- In-home health care, companionship, and services from seniors who enjoy helping others.
- Reasonable hourly rates for seniors who want care and companionship.
- Reasonable hourly wages to seniors who want to provide these services.
With our matching services, we are able to give seniors freedom, assisting with senior day-to-day living and in-home health care. Our goal is to lighten the burden for families, giving many the peace of mind they need to know their loved one is in good hands. With our flexible scheduling and a wide range of personalized services, you can trust that the help you need is within reach.
How In-Home Senior Care Began
Seniors Helping Seniors® is a network of caring and compassionate people, much like an extended family. Originally founded by Chairwoman Kiran Yocom and President/CEO Philip Yocom, Seniors Helping Seniors® was created to fulfill a personal mission of providing assisted living care for seniors who are unable to care for themselves. Before arriving in the United States, Kiran worked alongside Mother Teresa for nearly 14 years and wanted to continue to offer help in a way that not only mattered but was necessary.
Linda Gabel, owner and operator of Seniors Helping Seniors® in Larimer County, started her senior home-care services business to provide a compassionate companionship for the elderly citizens in her community. These individuals were both looking to help and to be helped. By providing this home health care, Linda was able to form a community of people who supported one another.
Linda has her MBA in Finance from the University of Tennessee, a certificate in Dementia Care from the Alzheimer’s Association, and a Certification in Senior Advising from the Society of Certified Senior Advisors. She is also a class leader for Powerful for Caregivers classes and hopes that, through her program, she can help seniors age with grace and find the companionship they long for.
Monica Londoño and Sandra Acevedo work as the owners and operators of Seniors Helping Seniors® in Weld County.
Monica learned from her mother and aunt, that the success of a community is always to give more than what you receive. This is why she has spent the last 10 years of her life helping in different organizations in Northern Colorado including The Alzheimer's Association and the Greeley Chamber of Commerce. Monica is also the coordinator of a medical mission that travels to Nicaragua every year to provide free orthopedic care.
Additionally, she is a medical interpreter, learned English at Northern Virginia Community College and is certified by The Alzheimer's Association in dementia care. She is originally from Colombia and has expressed how fortunate she feels to call Northern Colorado home.
Sandra moved to Northern Colorado in 2003. Upon her arrival in Colorado, Sandra felt she was in the place she needed to be to raise her son and eventually grow her business. Sandra is originally from Colombia, where she went to school and obtained her BA in psychology. She completed her master's in criminology at the University of Memphis.
Sandra is following the steps of her father who has spent the last three decades caring for homeless seniors in need of housing, food and medical care.
