Caregiving Tasks

Our wonderful staff possess a huge range of skills, and each caregiver excels at a variety of tasks. We match our caregivers to the level of care and exact needs you express during our complimentary consultation. We match personalities as well!

Shifts: From four hours to around the clock. We assist seniors who only need a little help to those with overwhelming needs.

Note: Caregivers will not handle financial matters involving the client. They will, with family permission, make purchases from petty cash and note it on a Petty Cash Log along with receipts of all transactions.
