When seniors are able to spend their golden years in the comfort and familiarity of home, those years are truly golden. Since 1987, SHC has allowed them to extend those years at home, becoming the trusted, in-home alternative to assisted living and nursing homes.
Round-the-clock care, an alternative to facility living
As much as you might wish to, you can’t always provide round-the-clock care for a loved one in fragile health. Kit Whittington, our founder, understands firsthand what you’re going through.
Years ago when her grandmother needed round-the-clock care, in-home options weren’t available. Rather than admit her grandmother to a nursing home, Kit made the difficult decision to quit her job and care for her grandmother herself. That experience planted the seed for Seniors Home Care. Since 1987, our mission has been to provide the same level of personalized, flexible, in-home care that Kit was blessed to be able to provide for her grandmother.
“”Not just round-the-clock care. Tender, capable, in-home care.
Common scenarios requiring 24-hour care (long-term or temporary)
- Individuals who are at risk when left unattended – usually due to physical frailty or cognitive impairment such as Alzheimer’s disease or dementia
- Recently released hospital patients needing assistance, encouragement and supervision
- Families caring for an elder full-time in need of respite or a vacation
