Professionals Helping Seniors (PHS) is dedicated to supporting qualified, caring professionals who specialize in serving seniors.
PHS has grown into a national network of Alliances across the country that now includes hundreds of professionals.
We help create and manage networking Alliances for professionals dedicated to serving seniors and their caregivers. Each member of PHS has a common focus and is sincere in their desire to learn from each other’s diverse backgrounds and to share information in order to find solutions to senior issues. They are active in their community, provide educational seminars and panel discussions for seniors and their families, and are a common source of information on current senior issues.
Providing Solutions for Today’s Caregiver Issues
We understand that sometimes life events can throw you unexpected curves, especially when it comes to caring for a loved one. You may be facing a transition from working parent to working caregiver; forcing you to make changes at work and personal sacrifices at home to accommodate caregiver responsibilities.
As a working caregiver, you may have to consume your personal and vacation days, or take time off without pay in order to manage the daily routine of your loved one. The stressful obligation and additional responsibilities of being a caregiver may cause financial strain and possibly force you to reduce your work hours to part-time or seek early retirement, meaning the loss of income and benefits. Oftentimes, caregivers face sacrificing future career advancements, additional sales, pensions and Social Security benefits.
You, in fact, many American workers, are facing increasingly difficult decisions as you take on the responsibility of providing ongoing daily care for an aging parent or loved one. We are here to help in limiting the stress and burden placed on you and your families. Our goal is to provide you with as much information as possible to make your decision making easier.
The PHS network is comprised of professionals throughout the United States providing every possible need in the aging, elder-care spectrum in order to meet the personal demands of your employees who also serve as caregivers. These services, all designed to give them the peace of mind.

By fulfilling the caregiver role, employees have access to tax incentives as well as a network for handling all their loved one’s needs?
- If they provide 50% of more of the living and caregiving expenses, they are entitled to a tax deduction for doing so.
- If they contribute to a Medical or Flexible Spending Account (MSA or FSA) they can use these pre-tax dollars to pay for associated expenses, providing an additional tax incentive.
- In addition to receiving these tax incentives, we’ve partnered with an exclusive network to provide access to all the solutions your employees might need to care for your loved one without giving up valuable work time.
With just one phone call, we connect members with an array of specialized services designed to provide you with the peace of mind you deserve.
