Home Care Services
Home Care allows an older adult to remain in the comfort of their own home – wherever that home may be – regardless of physical or cognitive limitations. When an older adult engages a Home Care provider, they are able to maintain their independence, improve their safety, protect their dignity and benefit from social connection. Our Home Care enhances an individual’s life and can help prevent premature transition into higher levels of care.
Through an in-home assessment, our staff will work with an older adult and their family to develop a personalized plan of care. All our caregivers are screened, trained and matched to your needs and preferences in that plan. We make ourselves available to you –A Helping Hand staff is a trained and dedicated on-going source of support for you, your family and our caregivers.
We find continual and clear communication allows us to start with the right care for you and refine your care plan as we get to know you better. Get started with a few of our Home Care options.
