What is in-home non-medical care
As we age or experience medical issues, there might come a time when we aren't able to take care of ourselves on our own. The main goal of in-home, non-medical care is to provide services that allow you to stay at home instead of being cared for at a facility. Health issues, finances, and your well being are determining factors when it comes to making these decisions. If non-medical home care is right for you, it gives you the comfort of being in your normal surroundings. It gives you flexibility on when you need care. It allows you to be in control and keep your independence.

The free home assessment is conducted by the managing director and the client services director. We will come to your home to speak with you about your needs and how we can best help you. At the end of our meeting, we will have a customized plan put together, which will then be reviewed by the caregiver assigned to you. Together, we will all be on the same team to meet all your needs.
