Our home care can be broken down into five categories: companionship and home helper, personal services, transitional services, Alzheimer's​ or other dementias care, and hospice support.

Companionship and Home Helper: Our CAREGivers help with the day to day, meal preparation, medication reminders, and even light housekeeping. They also can escort your loved one to the doctor's office or errands that need to be done. Most importantly, with our companion care your loved will not be alone. The constant interaction with our CAREGivers help create a bond with the client developing a more meaningful relationship, this helps the client mentally.

Personal Services: If your loved one is having trouble with walking and getting around or has a small range of motion that makes personal care difficult, we can help. Our CAREGivers are trained to deliver personal care with dignity. Helping your loved one with bathing, dressing, incontinence care, and mobility assistance.

Transitional Care​: Our transitional services provide transportation when necessary. As our loved ones age they might lose the ability to drive and simple errands like picking up prescriptions or grocery shopping become increasingly difficult. With our transportation services your CAREGiver will get your elderly loved one from A to B safely. We aim to provide a service that makes the day to day easier and less stressful for everyone.​

Alzheimer’s or other Dementias Care: Home Instead CAREGivers are trained to care for clients with Alzheimer’s and other Dementias. Our CAREGivers help manage behavioral symptoms and encourage engagement. As well as maintaining a safe environment for your loved one.

These services are aimed to achieve one central goal, and that is to create a safe environment that will allow your elderly loved one to live at home.
