SANTA BARBARA, Calif. (September 18, 2018)—Help Unlimited, a locally-owned and operated homecare agency, and Honor, founder of the Honor Care Network, have announced a new partnership.
For more than 40 years, Help Unlimited has been committed to serving the Santa Barbara community of caregivers and older adults. By joining the partnership, Help Unlimited will now have access to new scale and technology to provide enhanced care experiences for its clients, while maintaining its direct, personal relationship with Santa Barbara County families.
“We’ve seen an uptick in demand for in-home care driven by an aging population, needed support for dementia care as well as older adults wanting to remain in their own homes for as long as possible,” said Gayle Bertsch, owner and founder of Help Unlimited. “We knew we needed to take an innovative approach to make our overall operations more efficient to service more clients, while maintaining the excellent quality of care we’re known for. Partnering with Honor will allow us to positively impact and care for even more families in our community.”
California’s population will grow over the next 20 years, and seniors make up the fastest growing segment. By 2060, the Santa Barbara County population aged 65 and over is projected to grow more than 100 percent compared to 28 percent growth across all age brackets.
The Honor Care Network gives Help Unlimited access to more caregivers, new technology and a complete support operations solution. Honor handles all caregiver recruiting, wage and hour, and industry compliance for its partners. The technology platform helps Help Unlimited schedule care more easily and have greater visibility into care. The Honor platform is also designed to reduce the day-to-day back-office challenges of running an agency.
