We Charge Less
Prospective clients almost always choose our services for one very simple reason – WE CHARGE LESS FEES THAN OUR COMPETITORS. In this day and age, where the norm is to place profits first, and client outcomes a distant second, we are more than happy to go against this trend. Our focus is on providing a second-to-none service that will exceed your expectations.
This is why Home Care Assistance has
- No Entry Fee
- No Exit Fee
- No Basic Daily Fee
- Administration and Case Management Fees are ONLY 15% of the package
We offer flexibility
Our competitors employ caregivers who only work during the night, on weekends, or offer transportation to medical appointments. However, Home Care Assistance is totally flexible and happy to provide care whenever and wherever you need it.
We ensure your peace of mind
You can rest assured knowing that a reliable, qualified caregiver is caring for you or your loved one. Our care team works with family members to provide complete transparency and is on call around-the-clock should anything arises.
Matching Caregivers to Clients
We match caregivers to your specific needs. Home Care Assistance offers a roster of caregivers with high degrees of experience and skills. However, personality matching is just as important! We strive to find the right personality to suit you and will select another caregiver if required for any reason – no questions asked!

"Please extend my thanks to Susan (the caregiver) and her dog, I had a very unusual talk with my mom yesterday in that this was the first call in years where she was so relaxed and so happy with her day and it was clearly due to Susan and her dog."
