We've made it simple for you to find the best senior care solution for your needs. These 5 steps will lead to the solution that best fits your needs.

Non Medical Home Care

The main goal of Non Medical Home Care is to keep you or your loved one in your home. “There’s no place like home” is the driving force behind non-medical care, which provides custodial services that enable your loved one to safely stay in the comfort of their own home.

Non Medical Home Care is generally provided on a 2 to 24hr basis to provide assistance with activities of daily living (ADLs). Services include: Respite care (family relief), homemaker services, companionship, fall prevention, medication reminders, incontinence care, and bathing & grooming.

Non Medical Home Care is generally covered under medicaid & long-term care insurance plans, but not under medicare and is often used in conjunction with skilled nursing care (Home Health Care).
