Our In-Home Care Aides can help you or your loved one stay home, or to return home after an illness or injury 

Care N Assist’s In-Home Care

Our goal is to do what our name says we will do… Care-N-Assist. We want to help you stay at home or return home after an illness or injury.

Dedicated, Flexible, and Personalized Care

If an illness or injury threatens your ability to stay home we can help. Our Home Care Aides, HCA’s, work closely with our clients to provide the In-Home Care you need. We are available for a few hours, a few days a week, or full time up to 24 hours, 7 days a week. You stay in the comfort of your own home and we will provide the necessary services like personal care and homemaking.

Respite Care

When you’re a caregiver for someone who is unable to care for themselves it can be a heavy burden. It is important to plan time to take care of yourself. We can work on a schedule or cover your needs on a concierge basis. We realize that we can not replace you, but if you let our highly trained team fill in for you, then your social life and personal health will thank us later. 

Dementia Care

Having help to care for a loved one who has dementia is extremely important. Helping them live at home is our specialty. 24/7 care is available, but a few hours of care, at key times of the day, may be enough to create a safe environment for them.

Though each client is unique we believe it is important to prepare each HCA to provide a great service. Each of our staff go through training’s which include subjects like “The Aging Experience” and “Dealing with Difficult Behaviors” and more.
