At Senior Home Care, we know that there is no place like home for recovery. When a patient's physician determines that one or more medical conditions require care and monitoring, our home health care programs allow the patient to recover at home and still get the extra care needed. We bring highly skilled medical treatment, support and encouragement to patients in their home or assisted/independent living facility.

Our talented therapists, nurses and clinicians utilize a multi-disciplinary approach to care, ensuring everyone involved in the treatment process is in regular communication. We partner with the patient's physician and loved ones to provide help where we are needed most.
Our staff is dedicated not only to healing but to educating and empowering patients so they can move toward greater independence and a better quality of life.
