Let Us Be Your Second Family – We’ll Be There When You Can’t

You call her every day … you shop for her … you take care of her repairs … you drive her to the doctor and help her with paperwork. You’d like to do more, but you’ve got your job and your own family to think about, too. And yet, you worry about your mom being home by herself so many days. And you’re not alone. Nearly one in every four Americans is caring for an older adult, and the stress can take its toll.

A Healthy Solution

Second Family Home Care’s companionship services not only relieve stress and worry for family caregivers, but they also provide the healthy interaction and activity that are vital for seniors in retaining cognitive abilities and physical health. Our kind and thoughtful caregivers truly enjoy working with seniors. And we find that most seniors are much more likely to accomplish tasks and participate in favorite activities when they simply have a companion with whom to enjoy them.
