Seniors Helping Seniors of Broward County has been an absolute blessing for our family! Diana Cabassi runs a professional, supportive and incredibly responsive group of compassionate and dedicated caregivers. My sister and I live many miles away from our mom and need help getting her to doctor appointments, shopping excursions, and run general errands with her. Diana matched her with an amazingly thoughtful, warm and caring individual who has become a special part of our mom’s life (ours, too!). When so much in life is difficult to navigate, especially from a distance, Seniors Helping Senior and Diana have made this aspect a truly wonderful experience. They are a bright, shining light of caring assistance. I highly recommend this organization to anyone who is looking for extra help for a loved one.
What Our Families and Seniors Are Saying
Seniors Helping Seniors is professional, caring and, certainly in my mother's case, a blessing. Let's start with Diana Cabassi, who took the time to come to my mother's house to meet and get to know her in order to pair her up with a caretaker who was the right fit. "I have just the person for you," Diana told us at the first meeting. That person turned out to be Rosalind. Turns out that Diana was spot on. Rosalind was an angel sent from heaven. She immediately bonded with my mom. To call Rosalind a caregiver is not giving her enough credit. She takes care of my mom as if she were her own mother. Besides taking my mom shopping, to doctor's appointments, etc. Rosalind is a great listener. My mom says that her favorite moments with Rosalind are when they are simply talking. The peace of mind that Rosalind brings to my family is enormous. I could go on and on but will just say that if you need help taking care of an elderly parent, go no further than Seniors Helping Seniors. These ladies are first rate. Thank you Diana and Rosalind.
Seniors Helping Seniors has given my sister and I such relief to know even though we are 1500 miles away, our mom has someone to take her shopping, to doctors or just be a companion for her ….. The people in the organization out in the field working directly with our mom to the management of this firm are all compassionate and caring.... We highly recommend to anyone in need of assistance
As a Certified Care Manager advocating for older adults and coordinating services, I often have the need to refer to outstanding professionals in our community. Diana Cabassi, owner of Seniors Helping Seniors, is the outstanding professional in our community for companion care support. I have known Diana since the inception of her Seniors Helping Seniors company. Not only is Diana caring, compassionate and professional, she has a heart of gold. Her staff possesses the same outstanding qualities. I encourage everyone to reach out to Seniors Helping Seniors when there is a need for companion services.
There came a time when I needed help as I am dependent on a walker 24/7. I wasn't sure which way to turn. A friend suggested I try Seniors Helping Seniors. From the first conversation with Diana Cabassi, my decision was made with confidence. Now approaching a year and reflecting back, I am so glad I found Seniors Helping Seniors. My Senior Lady is fabulous. Upon entering my home, I hear a loud and infectious, Good Morning! and a Cheery Hello! then, what's on the agenda today? It could be a doctors appointment, the grocery store, shopping, The Dollar Store, lunch or etc. Sometimes it's a day at home cooking, laundry, or even a game of Scrabble or Boggle everyday task all with laughter, a smile and much, much more. Thank you Diana for all you do to help seniors like me remain in our homes.
I highly recommend Seniors Helping Seniors for any family seeking assistance for their loved one. Diana carefully listens to each family's particular needs and matches them with the perfect person to fill that need. The fact that the assistance is provided by a senior who tends to have more in common with their loved one is the big bonus of working with Seniors Helping Seniors.
I want to share our wonderful experience with Diana who runs Seniors for seniors in my area.
Diana has hand picked each caregiver we've had to fit my mothers care. Everyone who has walked through my door has been a godsend. Sweet, caring, good natured, upbeat, and HONEST!
The care that these ladies have given my mom keeps her mobile, and engaged with the outside world. They go to movies, Flamingo Gardens, Tree Tops Park, play card games and board games. This gives me the peace of mind so I can work part time and also have my play days.
I cannot say enough to explain the great level of care they give and trust I have in them.
Think outside the box. SeniorCare isn't just for the ill. One of the things our Mom appreciated at this time of year was the way her SeniorCare ladies worked with her for the Holidays to make the season bright. They wove strings of lights through the front planter (she loved the outside lights). They placed well-loved decorations throughout the house, and helped her make cookies using old family recipes. Together, they fixed other holiday treats to give to neighbors and friends. They listened to her as she shared holiday memories and gently placed revered ornaments on the tree, following her direction to be sure they were "in just the right spot". The caregivers assisted with wrapping gifts and helped Mom with all those holiday tasks that she had trouble doing by herself... they gave her back the fun of preparing for the holiday, of feeling the excitement and anticipation we get as we share in the joy of giving. These women went out of their way to make Mom's spirits bright.
We didn't know it would be her last Christmas, but believe me...thanks to these wonderful caregivers, it was one of the best in a long time. Thank you, Diana Cabassi, for sending these angels to look out for Mom so they could be there for her when we couldn't. We could never thank you enough. May God bless you all.
My mother needed some help driving around and was reluctant to impose on her friends, so it started out with a ride to the doctor's, the dentist, the drug store, the grocery. As time went on, she needed a hand with meal prep and some light housekeeping. We were able to set up a regular rotation of helpers who came to the house and she looked forward to their visits. As her strength deteriorated, she wasn't able to get out and about quite as often, so these wonderful caregivers were needed even more. Their companionship gave joy to her days and later, eased her mind about being alone overnight. They quickly went from helpers to friends and eventually became like family. We are so very, very grateful for Seniors Helping Seniors. They gave Mom a way to keep some of her independence, they kept her mind involved and her sense of purpose strong. I believe in my heart that their presence brightened her days, soothed her nights, filled her heart and extended her life. They were there for her when we couldn't be. They are truly angels in training and I thank God for each and every one. -Kim A.
