At Seniors Helping Seniors® Fort Bend, we have a passion for meeting the needs of seniors in a way that provides both dignity and a sense of camaraderie. Our owner Shehnaz Kapasi firmly believes we can do that through serving seniors in our community, which includes: Fort Bend.
Being a compassionate caregiver is something Shehnaz Kapasi, owner and operator of Seniors Helping Seniors in-home services throughout the Greater Houston area and Fort Bend, is extremely passionate about. Her personal caregiving experience with her mother inspired her to help other families in her community to receive the help they need in a loving way. “I want to help make the quality of life for seniors as great as possible,” says Shehnaz.
Seniors Helping Seniors in-home services matches seniors who want to help with seniors who need a little help. “The service I am offering is unique because Providers and Receivers both benefit,” says Shehnaz. “Senior Providers are productive, out and about in our community, caring for others, and providing a great service. Senior Receivers are able to stay in their homes and live their lives with independence and dignity, plus they get the companionship of someone who understands them.”
The Providers who work with Shehnaz offer many services including light housekeeping, laundry, errand services, pet care, mobility assistance, leisure activities, transportation, doctor’s appointments, and most importantly, companionship.
Shehnaz has been in the Banking Industry for the last 15 years. Her career started in Dubai and then continued working for financial groups in Houston, Texas. Most recently, she had been working with JPMorgan Chase for 7 years. No matter how hectic her schedule is with balancing work and family, it is very relaxing to watch her son play tennis.
