Our Services

It’s our mission at Friends In Home Care to enable our clients to remain independent and safe in their homes. Our caregivers can also travel with clients, providing transportation for errands or appointments. Companion care is available up to 24 hours a day. It’s an excellent choice for seniors who live alone or don’t have a lot of family and friends nearby. It also works well for short-term respite care. The primary caregiver gets a much-needed break, and the senior loved one is able to interact with another caring person. And of course, companion care is included in our signature live-in service.
