What is Presbyterian SeniorCare at Home?
Presbyterian SeniorCare at Home is a faith-based, nonprofit provider of home care for seniors, and part of the region's largest network of services for seniors. Our mission is to support you or your loved one in maintaining dignity and independence.Close
Is home care an alternative to moving to a personal care home or assisted living residence?
Many of our clients have thought about moving to one of our many retirement residences, but decided they are not ready yet, don't need all the services found in a personal care home or simply can't afford it. Our team approach to home care offers the flexibility and affordability to create the right mix of assistive living services in your own home. If you decide you would like to move to one of our communities, we can help with that transition.Close
I think my mom needs more than just help with housekeeping and bathing. Can you help manage her other health needs?
Yes, our Client Care Coordinators are trained to holistically assess the needs of the client and the needs of the client’s family. In addition to providing caregivers in the home, we strive to create an environment that is supportive to aging in place. For example, we offer care management services to help coordinate health care needs, assistance with taking medication, emergency call buttons, and nursing and therapy services.Close
What happens during the in-home evaluation and what does it cost?
The initial evaluation is free, and we will never ask you for any financial information during that meeting. You are under no obligation to use Presbyterian SeniorCare at Home after the evaluation. The in-home evaluation helps us to better understand your loved one’s needs and create an individualized service plan.Close
