FAQs about Home Care

  1. What is Home Care?

    Home care is designed to provide seniors with one-on-one assistance from a trained caregiver in the comfort of his or her own home. With assistance from a caregiver, seniors are able to live at home independently and maintain their quality of life. The personal attention they receive vastly improves their safety, health and happiness.

  2. When is Home Care the right choice?

    When you or your loved one's ability to live independently is compromised and you would prefer to receive assistance at home rather than living in a care facility. If you strongly feel that you or your family member needs assistance with activities of daily life such as eating, bathing, toileting, etc., it might be the right time to consider home care.
