Walnut Creek - California - US

WALNUT CREEK, Calif. - Oct. 30, 2018 - PRLog -- Murat Arcun Tanju understands the importance of caregiving. For the last 10 years, he has been helping his mom care for his dad, who had a stroke. Now Tanju is pleased to announce he's launching his own business to help other families with their caregiving needs – Home Helpers of Walnut Creek.

Home Helpers is the nation's leading franchise specializing in comprehensive home care for seniors, new mothers and individuals needing recuperative and continuing assistance. Home Helpers of Walnut Creek also offers Direct Link, its proprietary line of 24/7 medical alert systems, including a fall sensor with GPS locator and an automated medication dispenser. Home Helpers of Walnut Creek serves Walnut Creek, Lafayette, Orinda, Alamo, Clayton, Piedmont  and the surrounding areas.

"My own parents are 85 and 86 years old and, 11 years ago, my father suffered a stroke. I am fortunate that I could take care of them and check on them every day, but I know not every family and senior has that luxury. And even if you are able to be a caregiver, it is a lot of work, especially when you have a job and a family. Realizing how important caregiving services could be for other individuals inspired me to open Home Helpers of Walnut Creek and I'm looking forward to helping people care for their loved ones and for themselves in the comfort of their own home," Tanju said.

Tanju has a Master's degree in Electronics Engineering and 26 years of experience in information technology, 16 years with Microsoft and 12 years in services management. He has experience with hiring, building and managing local and international teams as well as business metrics, financial forecasting, budgeting, business planning and more. He also played professional basketball when he was young and, more recently, took a year off from his information technology career to study and pursue his passion for jazz music. Through his career, Tanju said his biggest strength has been building highly-motivated and successful teams, which is something he's looking forward to doing with Home Helpers. He's also excited about using technology to improve senior care. In fact, a new approach to developing innovative services for seniors Tanju envisioned was recently recognized as the top winner at the Digital Health Forum in Zurich.

Home Helpers specializes in helping families care for their loved ones so they can focus on spending quality time together – not just being full-time caregivers. Home Helpers' full-range of home care services empower clients to live healthier and more rewarding lives in the privacy, safety and comfort of their own homes.  Home Helpers of Walnut Creek offers free in-home consultations and works with each client to create a flexible, affordable care plan based on a person's individual needs. Services offered include personal care such as grooming, bathing, ambulation, medication management and care management as well as respite care, meal preparation, laundry, light housekeeping, companionship and transportation.

"Home Helpers is a nationally-backed, locally-owned company with the best interests of your loved ones in mind. We are here to help and, with our Direct Link services, you'll have added peace of mind even when we're not there. I'm looking forward to serving the community by connecting the best caregivers with the right clients, providing innovative services and supporting that partnership with Home Helpers," Tanju said.
