Our home health care providers perform services at any level that suits our clients’ requirements.
Homemaker is a person who provides the services a typical homemaker would perform toward the goal of keeping the home clean and safe as possible within the client’s and caregiver’s resources. Duties include preparation of meals, laundry and shopping.
Companion is a person who gives emotional support, builds trust, provides basic companionship, and performs light housekeeping. The companion also assists with personal grooming and stabilizes the client while walking.
