At Seniors Helping Seniors® of Shelbyville, Greenwood, and SE Indy Metro, we have a passion for meeting the needs of seniors in a way that provides dignity, safety and security. Our owner(s) Tom Krughoff, Noell Krughoff firmly believe we can do that through serving seniors in our community, which includes: Greenwood, Shelbyville, Franklin, and surrounding areas.
In August 2013, owners and Shelby County natives, Tom and Noell Krughoff, started Seniors Helping Seniors in-home care agency in Shelby County, Johnson County, and southeastern Indianapolis. After retirement they wanted a way to stay active and involved in the community. Seniors Helping Seniors in-home care was the answer. Not only does this service provide needed care for those 50 and older who wish to remain in their own home as they age, it also gives active seniors a way to earn a little income while doing something they love - helping others.
Tom and Noell have experienced firsthand the important role of caregiver. "Tom and I were happy to assist our parents when they needed more help around the house. But we quickly realized there were things we simply didn't have the time or expertise to do," shares Noell. "There is a lot to navigate to make sure your parents are cared for and happy." Tom adds, "Our goal with Seniors Helping Seniors in-home care is to provide services for seniors while wholeheartedly supporting their ability to maintain quality lives."

About Our Founders
