The main goal with personal care is to maintain a client’s independence and dignity. This can be difficult with those sensitive activities of bathing, toileting, personal hygiene, and dressing. By allowing our staff to assist with these tasks, your loved one can reserve their dignity while still receiving the care needed. We will gladly work in conjunction with home health, hospice or waiver programs or stand alone to achieve the greatest outcome for the clients and their families.

Sitters: Our sitters are non-medical caregivers who can watch over clients whenever and wherever they need them, from part-time to full-time to 24/7. Such care can be provided in a variety of settings, including the senior’s home, senior living housing, nursing homes, hospitals, rehab facilities and more. Elderly sitters are not physicians or nurses and cannot provide medical, physical therapy or any other related service.
