Care Plan Can be Done Virtually

For Family & Nursing Care Select clients, the Initial Assessment with clients and their loved ones can be conducted virtually online or by phone. Regardless of which option you choose, you will have access to a Client Services Manager, who is the primary point of contact for all your home care needs, both practical and emotional.
Caregiving Promotes Social Distancing
Caregivers can help with getting medications, grocery shopping, bill paying, setting up video communications with healthcare providers and family members, and providing companionship for vulnerable individuals, to help them stay safe at home right now.
In-Home Care is a Viable Option Because It Serves as a Vital Support System to Keep Seniors Safe, Cared For, and in the Comfort of Their Homes.
