Flexible Schedules. Exceptional Care.
Providing the Best Home Care, Elderly Care & Senior Care
We know your first priority when choosing a home care agency in the Boston area is finding someone who will care for your loved one as you would… someone you can always trust and rely on. We’ve been in your shoes, and know what it takes to deliver the very best quality of personalized, yet affordable, in-home care.
Our goal is to enhance the quality of life for you and your loved one. We’re not content to simply help people get through the day. We want them to live life to the fullest and have the best day possible, filled with exceptional care, joy and accomplishment. Today and every day.
Here are a few reasons why our clients consistently rate us #1 in Client Satisfaction, and refer us to their friends and family.
Affordable Home Care
We offer very flexible schedules with no hourly or weekly minimums. Why pay for more care than you need? Whether it’s 2 hours a week or 24×7 care, you can have as many hours you need, whenever you need them.
We work with you to create a schedule that fits your unique needs and budget, continuously assess how things are going, and refine the schedule to whatever works best for you.
Reliable Caregivers that Go The Extra Mile
Punctual, compassionate, attentive, trusted, trained and experienced – these are just some of the qualities you will find in our caregivers.
We are very selective about who we hire, and take our clients’ safety and security very seriously. That’s why all our caregivers are direct employees (not contractors), fully insured & bonded, and thoroughly vetted with drug test and a national background check – not just a Massachusetts-only CORI check. Rest assured that we only select people we would trust with our own family.
We have a generous rewards and recognition program for our caregivers, and do whatever it takes to have happy and engaged employees… because it’s directly reflected in the quality of services that they provide to you.
Completely Personalized Home Care
At our complimentary in-home consultation, we enjoy getting to know our clients and their families, developing a personalized care plan, and pairing them with caregivers who are a right fit with their needs and personality.
And on the first visit, we’ll be there for a face-to-face introduction to your caregiver. You need to be absolutely comfortable with who is coming into your home.
