“Aging” is another phase in life. It means more free time to spend on yourself and with your family. Do not let age hold you back! Recognize that with age sometimes comes greater difficulty in accomplishing tasks. Get the assistance BEFORE it impinges upon independence. Our goal is the same as yours. We want you or your loved one to remain safe, happy and independent at home. This is why Helpful Care was created.

Our screened and experienced workers are caring companions who help you to continue enjoying your daily life with a minimum of stress. You can count on us! We are there to assist at your direction. We can do as little or as much as needed.

Companions can prepare meals, monitor medication regimens, sleep patterns and general orientation, as well as assist with personal hygiene. For some, this may mean sitting at the kitchen table with a cup of coffee, sharing life’s stories, reading the paper and discussing events. For others, this may mean walking to the local coffee shop, attending a lecture at the library and picking up the newspaper on the way home. At day’s end, they will assure that everything is prepared for your evening routine. Independence means something different to each individual. If need be, your companion will be glad to tuck you in.

We simply assist where necessary. We will help design a program that suits your lifestyle and does not “take it over.” Services are available from just once a week for four hours to around-the-clock, live-in care.

Care services include:

  • Meal preparation
  • Nutrition monitoring
  • Medication reminding (including refilling prescriptions)

If you are the primary caregiver and need a well deserved break, let us provide it. You can take the time knowing that your family member is in capable, caring hands.
