Our caregivers see their job as far more than a just few chores, but a lasting commitment to helping your loved one be as happy and independent as possible. To do this we believe that we must forge relationships between our caregivers and our clients.
These deep bonds of trust and affection allow caregivers to become far more than housekeeping or aide.

Personal Care and Light Housekeeping- A caregiver will assist your loved one with a variety of personal care and household activities.

What Makes Our Care So Incredible? Interactive Caregiving!
Anyone can come into your loved one’s home, do a few chores, help them with meals, and any other tasks they need help with. But it takes more than this to help seniors thrive. Study after study has shown that the seniors that thrive the most are those that stay physically, mentally, and socially engaged.
Caregivers are carefully chosen to match personalities and interests as much as possible. The idea is to forge relationships between caregivers and clients that can most benefit your loved one, and offer them the engagement that is often lacking in senior’s lives. Activity and engagement take many forms, depending on the clients’ interests and their health. It can be something as simple as looking at photos and reminiscing, or it can be a meal made together and shared.
Additionally, each of our caregivers is a licensed driver and is more than happy to help your senior maintain their connection to the community by providing transportation if necessary. From attending a show at the Sandler Center for the Performing Arts to taking a class at one of the Forever Young Senior Centers to simply kicking back on the beach and people watching, we can help your loved one do the things they love.
