Cost of Home Care Versus the Value of Home Care

Often times when I get asked about our services, the first thing that I am asked is “How Much?”.  When shopping for home care, the cheapest might not be the best.  We understand that long term care can be costly but we pride ourselves on bringing in the best caregivers at the most affordable rates.

Paying to keep Grandma home

How can we afford in home care for Grandma?  She needs help with bathing, dressing and meal preparation but Medicare says that they won’t pay for this type of service.  They say that they will pay for medical services such as nursing, physical therapy and such but not, what they call, non-medical services.  This is […]

Gardening: Fun for Seniors

As a little girl, I remember many summers helping my grandparents plant the garden.  Grandpa would use the very old front tine rototiller to get the soil ready.  After that we would unwind the string from two sticks and Grandpa would hold one end, I the other, and one of us would move left or […]

Memories of Family Vacations
