Frequently Asked Questions
Deciding Between Nursing Home Care and In-Home Care
Choosing between your loved one receiving nursing home care or in-home care is a tough decision for any family member to make, but ultimately it is one that must be made. It is proven that in-home care is the more preferred option for most, seeing as it allows for clients to get care within the comfort of their home. More importantly, in-home care service guarantees highly attentive, one-on-one care with constant supervision. Many nursing homes suffer from understaffing and overcrowding, and recent studies are showing that placing your loved one in a nursing home might be a risky option.
Can My Loved One Remain Independent?
Yes! We believe that your loved one’s independence is very important and a vital part of complete care. With our in-home care services, our clients are still in control of the activities that they conduct and can retain their independent lifestyle while still being under the careful guidance of a Home Companion, Homemaker, or Personal Care Assistant.
Who Should Consider Our In-Home Care Services?

Remember that our home care services are not just limited to seniors with Alzheimer’s or Dementia, or those with disabilities. We can help improve your loved one’s physical, social, emotional, and mental health, regardless of lifestyle or social situation.
Do You Run Background Checks?
Yes! Before working with any client, our caregivers are carefully screened and are subject to a criminal background check in order to ensure the well-being and safety of our clients. A comprehensive interview and review ofeach applicant is also conducted, so that we can learn about each of our caregiver’s talents, interest and hobbies in order to provide a superior match for our clients.
