What is Companion Care?
Even if your loved one's basic needs are met, they may still experience isolation and depression.

Our caregivers can help your loved one with typical daily tasks while lifting their spirits with friendly conversation and interesting activities.
What is Personal Care?
When basic aspects of daily life aren't as simple anymore, your loved one can't live as freely and comfortably as they deserve. As part of our home care in Lawrence, we can assist with these routine tasks, so your family member can flourish — and you can breathe easier.

What is Respite Care?
Caregiving can be mentally, physically, and emotionally draining. When you don't take time to rest and look after yourself, the risk of burnout is high. Our respite care in Lawrence is meant to help you, too. Let our caregivers take over your caregiving duties when needed so you can spend some time caring for you.
Specialized Alzheimer's and Dementia Care
If someone you care about has been diagnosed with Alzheimer's disease or another form of dementia, you may have specific concerns about their health and safety at home. We can offer more specialized care to help counter the risks and preserve their independence.
This support can include the following:

Our Fall Prevention Program
As hard as it is to think about, a single fall can have serious consequences for seniors. In fact, they are the greatest cause of major injuries among the elderly.
We offer our Safe & Steady Fall Prevention Program to help our clients understand their risk and make helpful adjustments to their home. Seniors with mobility issues can also receive walking and transferring support.
Transitional Care to Help Lower Hospital Readmission
The risk of being readmitted to the hospital after an illness or injury is highest in the first month. As part of our Ready-Set-Go Home Program, our care team can help your loved one transition home, so they can make a full recovery.
We can support your family as you talk to your loved one's doctors and provide in-home assistance with their follow-up care.
Video chat, social media, and other online tools can help seniors connect with loved ones near and far. We can help your family member feel more comfortable with these tools, so your family can keep in touch more easily.
When someone you love has been diagnosed with a dire health condition, it's easy to feel hopeless. Our Palliative Care includes physical, spiritual, social, and emotional support to help your loved one and your family find more joy in each new day.
