It was a wonderful experience being on Mature Living with host Mary Yanez. Thank you so much Mary for inviting Yvonne and I to speak about our passion for assisting seniors in remaining in their homes with dignity, employing seniors in our community, and assisting our fellow veteran seniors in receiving their well-deserved and earned benefits.

At Seniors Helping Seniors® The Borderland, we have a passion for meeting the needs of seniors in a way that provides both dignity and a sense of camaraderie. Our owners, Mike & Yvonne Mercadel, firmly believe we can do that through serving seniors in our communities.  Mike and Yvonne are retired Naval Officers that have 50+ combined years of service.  They are committed to a life of service and partnering with Seniors Helping Seniors® in-home care is a natural extension of their core values.  They are here to serve the Borderland!
