HamiltonDavis Home Care, Inc. provides non-medical home care services to seniors, who may require assistance in their own homes and communities to assist in the maintenance and retention of their independence and well-being without the stress and hardships of interrupted routines and changes in daily habits. These services are responsive to the distinct needs of the client and community and are delivered by qualified home care workers.
Our part-time, full-time, and around the clock service alternatives are designed for people who choose to live independently, but require non-medical services. These services may include companionship, meal preparation, medication reminders, light housekeeping, and help with errands and shopping.
The life-enriching services we provide help the elderly throughout the community to preserve an independent and dignified lifestyle while in the comfort of their own homes. The homes we live in have a rich and meaningful history steeped in the joy and sadness of every breath and every heartbeat we take. There is a familiarity and lived in feeling that can never be replaced by an “old folk’s home” or some static health care institution.
It is inevitable that some day we will all reach a point in our lives where making dinner, going to the store or even getting dressed will become difficult. However, do we have to abandon our homes just because we cannot perform some basic life skills?
Thankfully, many of us are not at that point, but we all know someone who is! It could be a grandparent, a mother or father, a friend or even a neighbor that we care about. HamiltonDavis Home Care, Inc. alleviates the concern we all have for our loved ones.
HamiltonDavis Home Care, Inc. was designed to assist the elderly with what used to be their everyday chores. We assist the elderly so that they do not have to abandon the familiarity of their home or the camaraderie of their neighbors, friends, and family.
I encourage you to talk with family and friends who are responsible for elderly loved ones and listen closely to the challenges they face. You will discover the obstacles they have encountered in finding a suitable and trusted source of home care for their parents, relatives, and friends.
