BALTIMORE, May 5, 2021 Senior Helpers®, the nation’s premier provider of in-home senior care today announced the appointment of David Chandler to Senior Director of Strategic Programs. In this role, Chandler will be responsible for building partnerships across the continuum of care for seniors and supporting Senior Helpers’ proprietary LIFE Profile, a data-driven assessment tool that provides a holistic view of over 140 risks and factors that influence a loved one’s ability to age in their home. Chandler will leverage LIFE Profile to improve overall quality of life, reduce hospitalization risk and support successful aging at home.
“We are pleased to continue to strengthen our team with David’s expertise and insights to help further support Senior Helpers’ mission to deliver the highest quality, in-home senior care available in the marketplace today,” comments Peter Ross, Senior Helpers CEO. “We recognize that the home care industry continues to experience unprecedented growth, and he will bring a personal passion to supporting research and evidence-based practices, all grounded in LIFE Profile. Working closely with the tool will uncover factors of one’s life that directly correlate to their safety, quality of life and independence.”
Prior to joining Senior Helpers, Chandler served as a quality and safety coordinator and registered nurse, while managing local and enterprise-wide quality improvement projects. Before that, he was a registered oncology nurse, where he honed compassionate nursing care and clinical skills. Most recently, Chandler held successive roles at Retirement Center Management, where he managed financial operations and led staff development. He earned an MBA with a Concentration in Healthcare Administration at the Eastern University in Philadelphia and a Bachelor of Science degree in Nursing with a Concentration in Chemistry from Oral Roberts University.
“When I started my work in senior care at the age of 15, I was surprised by how others didn’t take the necessary care that seniors need and deserve,” Chandler explains. “Before I joined the Senior Helpers team, I was a believer in LIFE Profile as a customer who saw the benefits of this assessment tool firsthand. I’m thrilled to be in the position to help even more people by ensuring positive outcomes for our clients, which Senior Helpers has made our highest priority.”
