Superior Care You Need, Provided Where and How You Want
Caring Friends Home Care services fall into three general categories: home care, live-in and 24 hour care, medication management, and concierge services.
In practice, the lines between these are rarely distinct. Many individuals and their families have overlapping needs, and we deliver the services they require seamlessly with programs that are tailored to meet the unique needs of yourself or a loved one.
Home care refers to the kind of day-to-day assistance that medical insurance, including Medicare and Medicaid, either does not cover or only covers for a limited time after an acute ailment or hospital stay. While many agencies can support individuals with ADLs (“activities of daily living”), Caring Friends’ emphasis is on activity and living! Learn more about Home Care services.
Not every older adult requires live in care, but if your loved one requires ongoing daily assistance, Caring Friends offers a range of around-the-clock home care options that can make life easier. Learn more about Live-In and 24 Home Care services.
Medication management services build on our many years of experience in home care, and are custom tailored to your needs, including ongoing assessments and nurse check-ins. Learn more about Medication Management services.
Even the most active, independent seniors may at times need help with grocery shopping, transportation and errands. We employ our own carefully-selected concierge specialists with diverse educational backgrounds and experience to help our clients with an array of services beyond basic personal care. Learn more about Concierge Services.
Even the most trusted Assisted Living communities, nursing homes or senior housing apartments cannot provide continuous one-to-one support for their residents. We fill in the gaps whenever extra support is called for, working seamlessly with the community management to help during transitions (following a hospitalization or rehab stay) or on an ongoing basis.

What Our Concierge Services Include
In person: We help outline our clients’ nutritional needs and develop shopping lists, then accompany clients to their favorite grocery markets or grocery shop locally for them.
Online: We obtain a shopping list from our client, his family member or home care aide, and order groceries online to be delivered to the home.
Assistance with office visits
We transport and accompany clients to medical and related office visits (doctors, rehab, counseling, etc.), ensure follow-through in obtaining prescriptions and adhering to directions, and communicate with family members, as appropriate.
Home care does not have to mean homebound. We provide drivers and companions to escort clients to dinner, movies, concerts, theater, community events and other social activities that can be so important to an individual’s quality of life and sense of engagement.
