FAQ

How do I know you are selecting the best caregiver for me?

Our caregivers who have chosen to be live-in caregivers because they enjoy establishing relationships and providing the care needed so seniors can remain in their own homes. Our caregivers also provide hourly care for seniors as well.

Home Care Solutions takes great care to match the right caregiver to each Client. Our Staffing Geriatric Care Manager works closely with you to make a thoughtful selection. We are sensitive to your needs and work with you and your family to ensure a successful partnership. We match Clients based on their specific needs and the caregiver’s areas of expertise, personality, availability and the physical requirements needed to provide care.
