Home Care Assistance Wherever You Call Home

You can receive our personal care services anywhere you call home. This includes a private residence, assisted living facility, nursing home and other settings.

We currently offer home care assistance in Massachusetts; Jacksonville, Florida; and Knoxville, Tennessee. If you need care at home outside these areas, we’re part of a nationwide network of caregiver agencies and would be happy to provide referrals to reputable elder care agencies near you.

What You Can Expect From Personal Care

If your loved one might benefit from personal home care, call us for a complimentary assessment. During this initial meeting, we’ll get to know your family member’s preferences, health concerns, home routines and schedule. This helps us create a personalized care plan built around your needs and budget. We’ll also get connected with your loved one’s healthcare providers so we’re aligned on their medical directives.

Once we learn more about you, we’ll identify in-home services that can bring greater safety, enjoyment and peace to your family. Then we’ll pair your loved one with a caregiver who has the skills to help you achieve your goals. Our personal care providers are experienced, caring and dedicated, with a heart for caregiving. We form special bonds with each client, often becoming like an extended family.

While your loved one is receiving personal home care, we stay in close contact with you. You can expect regular updates, so you know how your loved one is doing and what to expect. As your family’s needs change over time, we’ll adjust your in-home care services so your loved one gets the right care at the right time.

Paying for Home Care

Our personal care agencies work with families with a wide range of budgets. We accept long-term care insurance, private health insurance, worker’s compensation insurance and payment through area Aging Services Access Points (ASAPs). Some clients pay for elder care privately, out of pocket.

Through flexible scheduling and tailored care plans, personal care can be cost-effective for many families. Call us at (800) 281-0878 for a cost estimate and to talk through your in-home care options.
