Home Care Services

Our senior home care services support healthy and happy aging in place, wherever “home” may be. Just as every person and family situation is unique, our in-home care is personalized for maximum positive impact. The services described in this section are among the most prevalent supports requested.

Our in home care service niche is non-medical in nature and is called “companion care”. Our senior companions can do MANY things that enable elders to remain at home as long as possible.  However, they are not home health aides or nurses, so they are not permitted to provide direct “hands on” care such as bathing and toileting (though we can provide “stand by assistance” for these activities).  Likewise, we cannot directly perform hand-feeding, wound care, weight bearing transfers or medication administration (though we can do medication reminders and tracking).

Our senior companions are available 24 hours a day, every day of the year. Services can be requested “as needed” or pre-scheduled.  We can respond quickly to schedule changes driven by our clients’ circumstances.

Below are the most common kinds of services we provide.
