Frequently Asked Questions

From our experience, seniors who may need some extra support but who do not want to enter a care facility, and seniors looking to stay independent while they remain in their own homes may want to consider non-medical home care services. Home Care offers an alternative for those looking to maintain their lifestyle, remain in the company of family and friends, and continue pursuing their interests, hobbies, and activities. In home care services are also great alternative to the often impersonal environment of a live-in care facility, as you have access to most of the amenities of a care facility, but you're able to remain in your home. For either the short or long term, in home care can be valuable for the individual's overall health, support, and sense of well-being.
Absolutely. We believe that independence is the key to autonomy - having control over your life and the way you choose to live it is of the utmost importance. Often, care facilities offer an impersonal care experience and a sterile living environment. In home care services offer you independence within the comfort of your own home, and on your own terms. Our care affords you the opportunity to continue with your hobbies, interests, and activities; to remain within the company of your friends and loved ones. Many of our clients just need a bit of assistance with life's daily tasks in order to continue living a healthy, productive, and fulfilling life.

Home Care most often refers to non-medical care services rendered from a third party, but within the individual's home or place of residence. The biggest difference between in home caregiving and in home health agencies is that home health agencies offer medical support services, while home care agencies do not. Both services are carried out at the home of the patient, but home health agencies usually offer services like medication administration, wound care, and skilled nursing assistance. Home Care Agencies tend to tasks like mobility assistance, housekeeping, personal care, and companion care. Home Care and Home Health agencies often work side by side in conjunction to support the patient.
