Or is it YOU who needs some help?
Don’t want your adult children to be burdened with your need for some extra help with the day-to-day?
Or maybe you don’t have any relatives nearby to give you a hand? Learn how to get help for yourself here.
The good news is that our in-home care experience is extensive (since 2011) and we care for your loved one with the compassion that we’d give our own family members. We’ll even bet we share the same mantra: family comes first. Learn the top 14 reasons people seek in-home care.
Our secret sauce is a mixture of compassion, love, empathy and continuity of experienced care, whether we’re with your loved one for a couple of hours or a 24/7 live-in arrangement.
If you’re shopping around for in-home care for a parent(s) or loved one, you’re probably a little stressed about the process. And quite possibly tired of every home care agency telling you “we’re the best.” Choosing the right home care agency can be overwhelming.
You Are Not Alone
According to a Gallup-Healthways study, more than 1 in 6 Americans working full-time or part-time report assisting with the care of an elderly or disabled family member, relative, or friend. Family caregivers indicated that this assistance significantly affected their work life. Adult children don't want their parents having to leave their home due to age-related illness or impairments. Many family caregivers spend more than 25 hours a week — in addition to their outside job and managing their household/family — caring for elderly parents and family members.
With someone else to take care of daily caregiving needs, family members can return to simply enjoying their relationship with an aging parent. Instead of feeling overburdened and guilty, time together can be spent creating new and recalling old memories.

Everything you need to know is in this 52-page e-book, designed for you to navigate the reality of aging loved ones and the benefit of beginning with personal in-home care where they can maintain dignity and morale.
You’re Still Their Baby
Something that seems to be a sensitive topic for some, is breaking the news to their parents that they will be getting in-home care. Adult children often struggle with breaking the news to their aging parent(s). We work with you to help with the message delivery to your parents. We’ve done it so often, that we understand the process an older person goes through when they believe they are losing their independence and others are beginning to control them. We know the right words, the explanations and the logic to convey to make this a smooth transition—just another benefit of home care.

We’ll Prove How Good We Are
While we do believe that we are the best non-medical in-home care agency, we like to prove it to you, in real-time, and we begin showing you with an in-home care and safety assessment that costs you nothing. It's a good opportunity for you to learn a lot about us as an agency and as caring professionals, as it involves our care management team meeting with you and any other involved family members, and of course, your loved one, if you desire.
Basically, we learn everything we can about your loved one—what their favorite foods are, to habits, limitations and so on. We gather information about what you expect from caregiving so that we can meet, or exceed your expectations. We'll be sure to ask you to identify any problems, special needs, strengths, weaknesses, and resources, as well as evaluate your loved one's:
The Many Benefits of Our Assessment
The benefit that towers above all others is the peace of mind that you feel from knowing you've finally initiated care for the person who may have spent a lifetime caring for you. And some argue that they are more excited at the cost savings of home care versus an assisted living facility or nursing home. Most of our clients indicate they feel so much better from the peace of mind we offer, but they’re equally as happy about saving a lot of money by using in-home care.
Assisted Living and Nursing Home Facilities Don’t Want You To Know This
In-home care is a cost-effective way for loved ones recuperating from a hospital stay or who, because of a functional or cognitive disability, are unable to fully take care of themselves. In fact, post-hospital patients who receive home care services are less likely to be readmitted for hospitalization. And the little secret about in-home care that you'll never hear from an assisted living facility or nursing home: one on one, individual care is given by in-home caregivers, not one caregiver for every 12 patients, like their facilities.
We’re Great at Long-Distance Relationships
Are you coordinating caregiving from out of town? When you are confident that your home care provider is top notch in both caregiving and communication, there’s a certain peace of mind that accompanies that confidence. It may even help you sleep at night. We are there when you can’t be.
We Have “The Calling”
Our success speaks for us. We are proud of our reputation. Having a career, or as we say, ‘passion,’ where we help make others’ lives better through our compassionate home care is why we are happily engaged in the calling of in-home care.
Have More Questions?
You probably have a lot of them! Call us and we’ll answer them for you. We are happy to help you get control of a tough situation and get your loved one’s life (and yours) back on track.
