Home Helpers, one of the nation’s leading home healthcare franchises, announced today it has signed AARP’s Work Reimagined Pledge, a national effort to help mature, qualified workers pursue more satisfying careers with employers that are hiring.
Leveraging the professional networking website LinkedIn, AARP’s Work Reimagined program enables mature job seekers to advance themselves in today’s tight job market using social media. By signing the pledge, Home Helpers is committed to actively seeking mature workers to join its mission of becoming the most trusted and respected provider of senior home care services.

By signing the Work Reimagined Pledge, we are showing our commitment to hiring skilled professionals and aiding in their pursuit of a more fulfilling career.”
Work Reimagined is AARP’s first talent exchange and comprises experienced workers, peers, employers and world-of-work experts to help people navigate social media to find employment.
According to Rob Romasco, president of AARP, “Work Reimagined enables experienced workers to share their views and help them navigate an ever-changing workforce in a vibrant online community. Forward-looking employers who sign our pledge are stating they will recruit these individuals across a level playing field. They are looking to employ people with a strong work ethic, maturity and strong customer orientation.”
