Private, Live-In and Hourly Home Care and Companion Service

Our vetting process and placement provide the highest quality professional caregivers who are devoted to serving each client with kindness, courtesy, compassion and the utmost respect for their individual requirements and dignity. Because of this process you can trust that we are providing you and your loved ones with superior level of care, compassion and professionalism that we would expect for our own loved ones, this is reflective of the many kind words expressed from those that we have had the privilege to serve. All caregivers that we refer are independent contractors carrying their own Professional Liability Insurance.
We appreciate your business and look forward to providing you with exceptional In-home caregivers.
All of our caregivers are trained Home Health Aides (HHA's), Patient Care Assistants (PCA's) or Certified Nursing Assistants (CNA's) willing to assist with health care and daily activity needs.

We work hard to match the personalities of our Caregivers and clients, so that you will feel truly comfortable with the person that will be spending so much time with you or your loved one.
It can be worrisome to watch your parents or loved ones grow older and more frail. You wonder how you can juggle your own schedule and also help them with the basic activities of everyday life. Our Live-in Caregivers are a perfect, affordable solution. Just knowing someone trained and reliable is there morning, daytime, evening and through the night, can be a huge relief and in many cases might be the only safe option for them to remain at home.
Our Live-in Caregivers are totally committed to their clients and are always available to provide immediate help 24/7 for which your Caregiver will need a separate bedroom and 8 hours of sleep with 1 or 2 interruptions.
- The recommended rate for a Live-in Caregiver is $1,120.00 per week for a single member household (or $1,420.00 per week for two-persons). In addition to the weekly caregiver rate there is a $392.00 per week agency fee that is billed monthly.
- Due to the cost of travel, the Live-in Caregiver's travel expense is paid by the client. This is the case for any relief caregiver which may be needed when time off is requested. All modes of transportation are explored to keep costs minimal.

Our Hourly Caregivers are specially trained caregivers including Home Health Aides, Patient Care Assistants and Certified Nursing Assistants who provide enhanced non-medical personal care to elderly or unwell clients in their own homes or care facilities.
As always we work hard to match the personalities of our Caregivers and our clients, so that you will feel truly comfortable with the person that will be spending so much time with you or your loved one.
