What is home care
Home Care is an excellent option for people who need assistance and want to stay in their own homes. An aide is assigned based on the physical and social needs of the individual, and is sent to the client’s home to provide the necessary care. They may need help with personal care such as bathing, dressing and meal preparation, or just watching the client and spending time socializing.

Home care has steadily become recognized as a key part of the health care continuum because it has been proven to keep older adults safe in their homes and out of the hospital.
