About Us

Your Family is Our Focus

Compassion, Professionalism, and Integrity

We understand that entrusting a loved one into another’s care takes a considerable leap of faith. Our goal is to educate our clients so they can make well-informed decisions, provide them the best options, and make the transition to a new home as smooth as possible.

Our service is at no cost to you, as we are contracted with hundreds of preferred providers in Oregon, Washington, and California.  Helping Hands has been placing elderly residents in quality housing facilities for over a decade and we are here to help!

Once you have briefed us on your loved one’s care, needs and desires, we will make appointments to tour several facilities that meet your criteria. This entire process including the transition should go at a pace that is safe and that everyone is comfortable with.  However, in emergency cases this process can take as short as a day.

Our mission is to locate a safe, permanent, nurturing home for you or your loved ones, and making the transition as simple as possible.  We are committed to providing the elderly and their families excellent customer service that is brought to our clients with compassion.

From the Owner / CEO

Larisa Louka, CEO of Helping Hands for Seniors

“My name is Larisa Louka and thank you for coming to our website!  In 2004, I discovered that my calling was to help and work with the elderly.  I started my career in long term care at the age of 17 and eventually became the owner and operator of senior care facilities in Oregon, and was later blessed to be the founder and CEO of Agape Hospice & Palliative Care in Los Angeles, California.

When I started Helping Hands for Seniors, I vowed to make this company special, and create an organization that truly helps seniors and their families during these challenging transitions in life.  Luckily with our wide range of experience, we have become experts, advisors, and advocates for the elderly.

Compassion, Professionalism, and Integrity, are our core beliefs, and we look forward to showing you. Thanks for considering us!”
