SHC caregivers are part of an exclusive group. Fewer than 20 percent of applicants meet our stringent criteria for honesty, competency and dependability.
Our caregivers aren’t simply looking for work; they’re answering a call to serve others and make a difference. They’re experienced, mature adults—many of them retirees—dedicated to helping make our clients’ lives as rich and satisfying as possible. It shows in their devotion to our clients and their willingness to go above and beyond.
The right match makes the difference
We carefully match you with a caregiver based on your needs and personality. That means we take time to listen to your story, learning as much as we can about who you are, who and what’s been a part of your life, what you enjoy, what you don’t, and the type of services you’re looking for. Our unique matching process prioritizes your needs and matches you with caregivers whose strengths will best meet your needs for the long term. We believe exceptional care is about trusting, meaningful relationships, so you can count on consistent care from the same caregiver as long as you like.
Hiring only the best caregivers has helped make Senior Home Companions Indianapolis’ premier service for providing in-home care for nearly two decades. Our caregivers know that being a part of the SHC family comes with a long-standing reputation for excellence. It’s why nearly half of our caregivers have worked for us for three years or more and many for over 10.
Meet a few of our experienced, exceptional SHC caregivers:
Jennifer Calwell spent 18 years working as a personal assistant for an agent of a local insurance company. She’s been with Senior Home Companions for a number of years and is very experienced in providing personal care, for our clients as well as for her own loved ones. She cared for her mother for several years at home and later when she moved to nursing home.
Her joy for caring for others shows in all she does. Whether it’s cooking, helping with housekeeping or simply spending time with her clients, Jennifer’s compassion is at the heart of her work. It’s why she has long-term relationships with her clients, who consistently endorse her work. One client says, “SHC will continue to do well as long as you have caregivers like Jennifer.”
Over the five years Esther Beasley has worked for Senior Home Companions, her joyful, loving spirit has left an impact on all of her clients. According to one of Esther’s recent clients, “Miss Beasley was a most competent companion and a pleasant, friendly soul to be with.””
Before starting with Senior Home Companions, Esther had a career with Lawrence Township School System. As someone who’s known for consistently going above and beyond and making clients feel special and loved, Esther’s values and work ethic are a perfect fit with SHC’s.
Esther currently serves a client in her 90s who formerly ran a number of Indianapolis businesses. Esther’s ability to assist her on many different levels as well as her thoughtful attitude and helpful spirit have provided the consistency needed to allow her client to remain in her home for years. Her client’s son recently commented, “We have been very pleased with Mom’s care. We know your caregivers are the best; Esther is amazing.”
Esther’s family means the world to her; she has two grandchildren she loves to spend time with when she is not providing care.
Janet is a home health aide and certified massage therapist who graduated from the University of Northern Colorado with a degree in special education and home economics. She loves to garden and sew and uses one of her other loves—cooking—to help clients feel their best. Janet carefully looked through diabetic cookbooks to plan menus for one of her clients who has diabetes. By preparing meals she would like in advance, the client only needed assistance a few days a week and was able to maintain a diet that was healthy that she enjoyed. The client’s family was overjoyed with Janet’s initiative, saying it was the healthiest their mom had ever been. They also noticed their mom seemed to enjoy life more with Janet involved.
