What is Home Care?

Home care includes any professional support services that allow a person to live safely in their home. Home care services can help someone who is aging and needs assistance to live independently; is managing chronic health issues; is recovering from a medical setback; or has special needs or a disability. Professional caregivers such as nurses, aides, and therapists provide short-term or long-term care in the home, depending on a person's needs.

Society's Assets provides In-Home Care, which is non-medical care. Services primarily help individuals with the activities of daily living. The main goal is to allow them to be safe and comfortable in their own homes.

This type of care helps older adults recover at home from a serious health issue. It’s usually less expensive, more convenient, and as effective as care from a facility.

How to pay for services?

There are many payment options including private pay (credit card or check), Medicaid, long-term care insurance, Veterans’ benefits, Workers’ compensation, government grants and donations.

Offices are open from 8:00 am to 4:30 pm Monday through Friday (excluding holidays).
