How do we get started?

It all begins with a phone conversation between one of our care coordinators and either the client or their authorized representative, typically a family member or friend. During this call, we gather essential information about your loved one and their requirements, while also sharing our recommendations with you. Following this, we suggest an assessment meeting, which is completely optional, where you, your loved one, and our care coordinator can come together to gather and discuss more specific details that cannot be easily conveyed over the phone. This meeting might also involve introducing a potential caregiver for the client, allowing the family to meet and engage in conversation. Once this meeting is concluded, we can initiate our services upon your acceptance.

Do you provide free in home care assessments?

Yes. This is a great opportunity for us to discover and discuss the details about your loved one’s needs and to prepare recommendations and a care plan. It also allows us to to get to know each other and feel comfortable before initiating services.
