We can provide the family’s primary caregiver respite from the day to day activities of caring for an aging family member, or provide continuous care for your family member.

Frequently Asked Questions

Q: My father is living by himself, and is living completely un-assisted, but I’d like to give him a companion and someone to make sure his dishes have been done. Can you help?

A: Absolutely.  Companionship and visitors to your father’s house will keep his mind on the day to day, as well as give him great social therapy.  Our visitors can prepare and have a meal with him and clean up afterwards, play cards, or just sit outside and watch the sun set with him.  These daily visits may change according to your father’s wishes as well, and we can do our best to adapt to those changes with our caregiver.

Q: My parents don’t need full 24-hour nursing care, but they do need help with a few things during the day. Can you help with these?

A: Yes – we want to assist your family member in their daily activities, whether it’s just doing washing, folding or ironing the laundry, assisting with morning activities like showering and dressing, or making breakfast for your parents.  This is what we do.  If you decide that they need more assistance, or less, we can all assess their care plan, and change it at any time.

Q: We need someone with my mom in the mornings to help her with her other in-home care providers and therapists and to help manage her schedule for these. Can you help?

A: Certainly.  Our caregivers can make sure that the people coming and going from your mother’s house are indeed care providers or therapists. We can also assist in making the appointments for the following week, or adjusting the schedule if appointments change.

Q: If I don't think the HHA is a good match for my mother can I change the aide:

A:  yes the aide can be changed;  there is no obligation to keep an aide.
