What is Home Care?

That’s what we do. We are about sustaining and maintaining your loved one’s quality of life in their home – keeping them safe and comfortable.

What you get from home care:
  • Personal grooming like bathing OR getting dressed
  • Moving around: getting in and out of the bed/shower
  • Medication reminders
  • Helping a person with Alzheimer's or Dementia by grounding and orienting them
  • Errands like grocery shopping and picking up prescriptions

How does home care work with home healthcare?

We both have the same goal of keeping your loved one in their home and we work together to make that happen. A skilled home-health-care professional changes your loved one’s prescriptions while an in-home caregiver helps them remember to take medications day in and day out. A home-health-care agency can change your loved one’s therapy if it’s not working, while an in-home caregiver is there to encourage them to accomplish those therapies and to watch for problems and let the therapist know.
