Live-In or 24 Hour Care offers seniors the opportunity to age in place, in a familiar home environment surrounded by their cherished memories. Around-the-clock care is a great alternative to assisted living facilities or retirement homes.
Home Care Assistance proudly trains our caregivers in the Cognitive Therapeutics Method™ so that clients can receive one-to-one cognitive stimulation as well as support with basic care and activities of daily living– at no additional cost.
Hourly home care is not only used to enhance the lives of our senior clients, but the lives of their families as well. Hourly care can provide family caregivers with time to attend to their own needs and personal obligations.
There are many options to consider when looking for solutions in caring for your aging loved ones, including live-in facilities. We can help you determine the best possible care for your loved one with whatever budget you are working with.
Our holistic, evidence-based Balanced Care Method encourages a nutritious diet, regular physical activity, mental and social stimulation, and cultivating a sense of purpose to promote overall wellbeing and longevity. Learn More

"While researching for a 'companion' for our Mother who suffers from stage 4 Alzheimer’s, we desired someone who not only understood the disease , but would know how to engage her, thereby increasing her quality of life. I liked what I read on Home Care Assistances' website and made the call. I spoke with Domenic, who was not only very helpful but most importantly designed a care plan that suited our family perfectly. He also had the perfect person in mind as well.. We are thrilled with his choice of companion! We even get glowing compliments from the long term care staff where she resides, on how wonderful and engaging our Mother's companion is with her. The overall professional, knowledgeable and friendly service provided by Home Care Assistance is greatly appreciated by our family. I highly recommend their company."
"This is a first class business. From the first phone call to enquire, to the visit to explore my needs (post surgical) to my amazing caregiver (Diane) it’s been top notch. Such a relief for not only me but a break for my husband from him looking after me. I didn’t actually realize how much she could help me and how much I would appreciate it. Diane has a gift in that within a few minutes of meeting her, she can make you feel like you’ve known her forever. I was comfortable right away and when you’re feeling vulnerable in the first place, it’s a wonderful feeling. I would highly recommend this company to anyone looking for either temporary or long term assistance. 5+stars!"
"Home Care Assistance came to our rescue when my elderly mother who is 87 broke her pelvis. Domenic and Deborah were amazing and sat with my mom and the family for 2 hours to discuss her needs and explain their services. We had their PSWs come to her home every day for 12 hours per day. The ladies were great in taking care of my mom's needs and making her feel comfortable. She wasn't always easy for them, I'm sure, but they were very professional and took it all in stride. They were very prompt, never late, and stayed until everything was done. They took care of the cooking, cleaning, personal hygiene where needed, etc. I would highly recommend their service to anyone looking for trusting and very friendly care givers."

Seniors with dementia sometimes collect or “hoard” things to manage stress or maintain what they perceive as order in their lives. At other times, hoarding happens because of memory issues or a preexisting love of collecting that’s no longer controllable. Regardless of why your senior loved one with dementia is…
