in home caregiver San DiegoThere may come a time when a senior can no longer care for themselves, their day to day affairs, or their homes.

If the senior will not be moving to assisted living and you need more help, hiring an in home caregiver may be the answer.

An in home caregiver can provide a wide range of non-medical services. They can assist with all activities of daily living (dressing, bathing, toileting, eating, and transferring). 

An in home caregiver can also help with light housekeeping, laundry, meal preparation, shopping, and transportation. And caregivers can provide much needed companionship to a senior.  Isolation can be deadly.

The most reliable way to find an in home caregiver is through a home care agency.  Home care agencies hire and employee women and men to provide care to the elderly or the disabled.

The majority of home care agencies adhere to strict standards to ensure their in home caregivers are of high quality. Be sure to thoroughly research any agency and caregiver you are hiring.

Client Testimonials

I came across Lise after dealing with several other senior consultants, all of whom were either located out of town or not at all in tune with what I was looking for.

Lise was a “breath of fresh air”, taking the time and patience to learn about my parents and their needs.

She saved me LITERALLY hours upon hours of time and effort by providing me referrals to senior homes that met my criteria.

To say that she knows the San Diego senior market and is very well connected thereto would be an understatement!

At all times, her ONLY concern was getting my parents located in a place that was best for them, and for our family!

I recommend Lise without reservation. You may contact me for a reference/further information about my experience at any time.
