At Seniors Helping Seniors® Dallas Northwest, we have a passion for meeting the needs of seniors in a way that provides both dignity and a sense of camaraderie. Our owner(s) Greg Dodd, Katie Dodd firmly believe we can do that through serving seniors in our community, which includes: Dallas, Richardson, Plano, and surrounding areas.
Greg and Katie Dodd, owners and operators of Seniors Helping Seniors® in-home services throughout the Dallas area, are dedicated to providing compassionate loving care to seniors in their community. Seniors Helping Seniors® in-home services has seniors (Providers) who want to help other seniors (Receivers). This peer-to-peer relationship benefits both the Providers and Receivers.
Our providers are able to give back and stay active in their community by being there for someone in need. Our receivers get the help they need from someone they can trust and build a friendship. This is a win-win situation.
Through their own life experiences, Greg and Katie truly understand the importance of quality, compassionate care. “We both had a parent with Alzheimer’s disease in the last years of their lives,” shares Katie. “We saw first-hand the difference a loving, compassionate person can make in helping a senior and their family.” Having a provider you can trust enables seniors who need a little help to remain independent and maintain the quality of life they deserve.
When a senior can relate to the provider, they feel more comfortable and willing to accept help. “Seniors who need a little help deserve to get that assistance in a respectful way that maintains their dignity. Providing that help for seniors, exclusively by seniors, is a great way to know your loved one is getting the type of help they deserve,” shares Greg.
The seniors who work with Greg and Katie offer many services, including assistance with personal care and medication reminders, light housekeeping, meal preparation, transportation, shopping, light yard work, minor house maintenance and repairs, overnight stays, assistance with pet care and most importantly, companionship.
Greg and Katie have been married for 42 years. They have six children and eleven grandchildren. They both attended the University of Dallas in Irving, Texas. Greg has more than 33 years experience in corporate insurance and risk management. Katie was a Pre-Kindergarten teacher for 17 years. They are active in their church in Irving, Texas.
