What We Do
Locally owned and operated since 2002
Becoming elderly does not need to mean living in isolation, losing outside connections, or enduring a diminished quality of life. By helping out with everyday jobs like running errands, light housekeeping, and meal preparation, our Home-Aid Caregivers, Ltd. can develop meaningful relationships with your loved ones in the comfortable setting of their own homes.
We care for your loved one by assisting with personal care, including bathing, dressing, feeding, personal hygiene, toileting, and transferring with the same gentleness that we would give to our own family members.
Dementia Care Certified Occupational Therapist on Staff
Our Caregiver is a delightful and attentive individual. She takes the initiative to look around and do the things that makes mother’s life better. She is always pleasant to be around. Hope we will have her for a very long time!
